1. make sure the harness fits you properly, it doesnt matter what the name brand it is or how expensive it is if it dun fit .. try it on in a store

instructions on fit .... http://www.metoliusclimbing.com/...o-fit_a_harness.html

2. dont go rush out buying a $$$$$ harness ... just because its expensive doesnt mean its going to last ... ive returned 3 arcteryx harnesses which are basically the most $$$$$ ones you can get because the lower tie in loop blew out, others have had the same issue ... to be absolutely certain buy it from somewhere like backcountry.com, rei, mec which have a no questions asked over the counter swap policy ....

3. for your first harness dont worry about all the fancy features you dont really need, or having one of those ultralight ones ... what you want is something that fits, is reasonably priced, and if you do outdoor climbing 4 gear loops ...

i personally use my old BD momentum harness right now, its lasted for years and longer than 3 arcteryx harnesses, and it cost me 50 smackaroos years ago Wink
