You can't really mess up a chalk bag. Two attachment points instead of 1, which is nice if you prefer wearing a belt, but it doesn't wear well if you prefer to clip it onto your harness. I have to wash it every month and a half, the skirt plugs up with chalk and I won't be able to close it tight.

Not great, not bad. I have an exceptionally large head, and it fits nicely, but my girlfriend's head is smaller than mine, and it doesn't fit tightly enough for it to be safe. Normally you'd just buy a smaller size, but there is only one size for this helmet. Also, it lacks UIAA certs, which could give the user a little more peace of mind.

Am I still wearing my harness?? 5 out of 5 stars

Outrageously comfortable, flexible, thin, and light. The way they make the harness enables it to be ridiculously comfortable with no padding. Has an extremely low profile, so works great for those tight squeezes, or those really awkward sends. A few minor downsides: No haul loop (I made my own with 1/2" tubular.), no drop seat (but that's not really what it's designed to do anyways)

All in all, this is definitely a great harness, certainly worth the extra coin. :)
