odd proportions 3 out of 5 stars

Review by: lixy, 2008-06-22

I got this because it was one of the few women's harnesses with fixed (elasticated) loops--I personally don't like buckles on my thighs. This a a well made, sturdy harness, but i find the proportions of waist-size to leg size are ridiculous--the legs are way too small in relation to the waist (esp for a "women's"!). And i have really skinny hips and legs, and a large waist, but even for my proportions this harness legs are too tight. I basically sized up, according to the instructions on the website, and the waist is still too big, especially annoying when i'm leading and the rope drags it down. The legs are definitely nice and snug, and maybe they're supposed to stretch eventually--so my advice is do not get one on the smaller end of your size!

I do like the Isis. I've had it for four years and done every kind of climbing with it (ice, aid, sport, trad, etc) with no problems. I have HUGE legs and the leg loops fit just fine. Less to worry about breaking down or not being set properly. If you're going to have to be peeing, etc on a wall or alpine climb, though, obviously, that's a negative.

The Isis isn't really a "beginner" harness, but it's a high quality one that will last.
