Pros Lightweight, comfortable, and versatileLightweight, breathable, comfortable, and highly mobileComfortable, easy to clip rigid gear loops, great value, adjustable leg loop system is light and easyPadded waist belt is comfortable, made in the USA and customizableVersatile, mobile, and compact
Cons High-rise might not fit everyone, less durable than other harnessesMight not feel great if the leg loops don't fit youWaistbelt doesn't have the best ventilationHeavy and a little bukyThin leg loops dug into the back of our legs when hanging
Bottom Line The best all-around harness in our test group - not specialized for any one thing but good at a lot of things.A lightweight and thin harness that is comfortable to hang in.One of the best and least expensive all-around harnesses in this review.A comfortable traditional harness that gives you great all-day support.Packs down small for lightweight adventures.
