Real Big Wall Rats will give you a more reliable review - I'm just a beginner. My partner and I bought this harness to carry all the gear as we learned to aid. Try carrying 50ish pounds on your waist: your harness ends up around your knees. This harness is big enough and has enough separate gear loops to arrange everything in a logical manner. It also has quick tabs on the shoulder straps for those things that you'll need next. The full strength chest ring allows you to fifi in at the chest on overhangs. And not only that, but it's really, really comfortable. I've gotten so attached to it, I'm using in on multi-pitch trad. What a geek! Just wished they offered an optional small pack that could hold a hydration bladder on the back. (Hint, hint Yates).
