I am aware that the video is pretty long, but for a harness that is $200 I think that it is justified. If you are spending this kind of money on a harness you better get what you want. For a quick review, I provided pros/cons bullet points below the video.
Sizing: I'm 6' 165lbs and where a medium...it fits perfect
Use: 30+ days sport & gym climbing, two multipitch routes
+ Bomber Short Material
The shorts are a breathable, durable, and stretchy fabric. It is a perfect balance that gives you enough stretch for high feet but won't tear if caught on sharp objects.
+ No smell
Don't know if they had this planned when developing them, but I have not washed these at all and there is absolutely no smell at all.
+ Grab 'n' Go
I love that I can just grab these when I'm
in a rush or climbing after work.
Fits perfect. Might just be me though.
|A little tight.|
- Not enough gear loops
One more gear loop would help keep my gear a little more organized
- Tie-in is a bit small
With slings, rope, and belay (if you rappel) it is a tight squeeze.
Just not a fan of it. Not a deal breaker though.
Sport & gym use
Take n grab use (like after work)
Overall, I really like this harness. Being $200, it would be tough to justify this purchase without first trying it, but after testing it, I would say that you get what you pay for. It gives you everything that you would want/need in a sport/gym harness that many $150-200 harnesses don't provide.
