if you bought these to boulder you should not rate them as such. They rock for all dayers

I wear a 32" and per their sizing chart ordered a "M"... the front Gear loops are situated way to far on the outside of my hips - making the rear ones are so far back i can't turn enough (even standing on the ground) to see what I am grabbing... What is the point of having the extra loop back there if you can only rack draws? If they moved the loops “in” it would be a far superior product. Maybe the “L” situates the loops differently but I doubt it. “Great trad harness” – phewy – not if you are a 32” and get the “M”. What is the point of dropping a Benjy if you can't use the basic features?

Solid - Solid - Solid! Also has neat auto lock/block feature for repelling. I would suggest it over the silent partner because you don’t have to tie off to rope to your harness. Get a padded chest harness if you plan on using it a lot.

Gets the job done... get your battery rebuilt if you purchase used for ~$100 and pop for the battery extension attachment to carry battery on hip.

I have taken a very short fall on the #1 and it held like a champ! The pivioting heads make it a little tricky to place but almost eliminates walking. Worth the extra effort in my mind.
