Got this to compliment my main super-comfy cragging/trad harness, and wanted to use this one for alpine. At the same weight (and way more comfort - and a belay loop) as the BD Alpine Bod, and gear loops and a big split back, I'm set. It doesn't absorb nearly any water, and has lots of adjustment range for layering. Padding is pretty good, though I get 'harness kisses' if I hang in it too much. Also, not terribly packable/compressible. But overall 5-star great for my moderate alpine self, just not 5-star everything.
