Don't get me wrong, this is a great harness. The frame is awesome and it is incredibly much more breathable than my Black Diamond Primrose. I wanted so badly to love this harness, however, I am going to have to send it back.

I think my body is strangely proportioned. The waist fit me perfectly if I tightened it all the way. I have a small waist, so I ordered size small for this. Unfortunately, the leg loops were just tight enough to be uncomfortable when standing. I hoped that this wouldn't be a problem, but I was proved wrong. The first time I took this harness out was outdoor climbing. I only did some top rope climbing and after sitting in my harness for a bit and belaying a guy heavier than myself, I ended up with a bruise on my tendons on my left leg where the leg loops rubbed. If I was belaying and my climber took a fall, it really hurt on that tendon.

I tried the harness with some gym climbing twice after that hoping that I could shift the leg loops around and get used to it, but it still ended up being painful.

Thus, though the waist is awesome, the non-adjustable leg loops do not work for me. While I am going to send it back, I'm going to try out the Petzl Luna, which has the adjustable leg loops. I was extremely happy with the Petzl harness, just not how the leg loops fit me.
