whuddah evah fits best and is within your budget ...

neither will make you climb any better

the dead birds used to have a known wear issue on the lower tie in points ... the newer version may or may not still have this issue

No local stores have them in stock for me sadly so I cannot test them in person to see which is more comfortable for me.
Then don't order either, unless you can return the one that doesn't fit. If you're not going to order both, how can you compare them? Why are you considering these over the ones that you can try on in your local shop?

There are free returns so it is okay.
Out of curiosity, which retailer is allowing returns on a mail-order harness? I know that at lest theoretically REI does, but seriously, who would buy a used harness that had been returned to REI knowing nothing of its history?

Yeah. Well the idea is to keep the one I order as long as everything goes well. That is why I was asking for opinions. My REI store can do ship to store. But it's fine. I shouldn't of posted the question.

I have the Chaos and I really like the way it feels. If you're looking for a size comparison the Chaos in medium fits exactly like my old BD Momentum AL in medium from 5 years ago.

Nah, I think posting the question is fine. Just wanted to make sure you or more likely others have considered those various questions.

Thanks buddy you were the final push I needed. I went with the BD Chaos. I went with a medium as well based on their sizing guide and what other people mentioned fitting for them.

And now that they've deleted all their posts in this thread, an incredibly lame-ass n00b at that.

Kartessa, you've done it again! Sent another little n00b home crying.

I wish I could take credit for that one... but he deleted his posts before I said anything.
