Light, well-priced (bought new on eBay), adjustable (but the rear elastic straps keeps lososening up), padding is comfy, cool Egyptian eye design on the back, would be nice to have a loop on the back for the chalk bag

A good harness that has stood up to me learning to rock climb with no visible problems.
Biggest problem is that I like to clip my chalk bag directly behind me, and this harness lacks a rear gear loop.
Recommended for beginners, but its what ever fits you best.

This was the first harness that i have purchased. Its a great begginers harness and its really versitile. It has a good amount of padding with firm foam that is pretty breathable, not bad for hanging belays but not great either. I really like the elastic tab that holds the harness in place while you double up the buckle. Has detachable rear risers however the leg loops aren't adjustable so you can't get great fit out of them, but generally they fit fine on me. The racking system is for plastic loops that hold about 7-10 biners. It is good for sport climbing but i'm unsure about how it would be with a large rack, might get a little crowded but the biners don't bunch to much in the middle. Also lacks a haul loop. Its similar to the BD momentum harness (which i used for a little while) but i like this harness more.
Pros: Price ($30), comfort, versatility, weight, and ease of use.
Cons: No haul loop, gear loops not to big, and can't adjust leg loops.
Overall: I would definiatly recommend this product, however its hard to find right now due to Singing rocks new product line. I think barrabes still has them.
