Misty Mountain sonic
Review by: jeepnphreak, 2010-02-05
Well after reading the reviews on this harness on RC.com most people seam to really like this harness. I have been using mine for several months ice climbing and light alpine and it ranks as one of the best harnesses I have ever had.
skidawg- Iam not sure what your issue was but the loop that hold the padding in works fine and the gear loops are perfectly centered for me, So I call your review user error.
This is my 6 th harness, all other were either BD or petzl, all of with worked just fine, but all put pressure on my legs in a hanging belay. But as far as comfort goes, the Sonic is increadble, it fits so well, I can hardly feel it. I lasted in a 30 minute hanging belay and my legs did not go to sleep. The gear loops can hold all most my full trad rack if I wanted to rack up on the harness. It has a ton of ajustability for any season, it fits with shots to snow pants on. Misty is deffantly high on my list for my next harness, possibly the cadi will be next for me.
I have one small issure that really is not a big deal, when seconding/cleaning, and I start out with no gear on the gear loops, the loops un loaded stick straight up with can get in the way of clothing. So cliping your fitst biner/gear can be annoying. once there is one biner or more the loops are just fine.
