This Is by far my favorite harness out of the 4 different ones I have tried. It is comfortable while hanging or just walking around. It does take a while to put on because you have to double back all the buckles. The other complaint I had was that the haul loop on the back is a little long but thats if your pickey. I clipped into my gear loop just for fun once (they are rated to 10Kn) so if your into strange uses for saftey equipment this is the one for you.

Good harness, exceptional adjustability
This model has been around for a long time and it's still a good harness overall. It has a couple of standout features. The first is that everything is load-rated (there have been a few epics with broken gear loops on other harnesses and the rack falling down the wall). It's nice to be able to clip a bag or whatever when you're organizing at the belay and not worry about it. The best feature is the adjustable rise. If you're average sized then you can pick from a lot of harnesses, but if you're one of those people where clothes never seem to fit perfect, you should really try one of these - it may make hanging a lot more comfortable. As far as cons it's not especially light compared to new models, and the double-back buckle is definitely more trouble to tighten than a speed adjust (how often do you take your harness on/off in a day though?).,,,,

Great harness, very comfortable. Doesn't cut into my hips like other ones I've worn. Another great product by Metolius, I recommend it to everyone!
