Excellent service from Rock and Run. I ordered a medium but when I tried it on I realised I needed a large as I wish to use it for winter mountaineering. The return and exchange went very smoothly and the harness fits perfectly
I come to this one having used the beginners' kit Viper for so long. This certainly seems a lighter harness with all parts narrower. I've not had chance to try hanging in it yet (or falling!) so see how comfortable it is. Maybe with Brimham Rocks now open this will change! The padding looks like it should breath. Testing will tell. As Dean mentions in his review, the belay loop will not sit central to the back support unless you happen to have exactly the right waist size. Where the back support on the Viper can be moved around to center it, this one is sewn into position. I'm hoping that over thinner climbing clothing and once able to get more exercise! mine will be more central than it is. This may be why the waist size range specified on these is only 10cm. The Medium centers on 33" and the large on 36". There is room for sideways movement of they belay loop in its slot. The tie in loops have the extra reinforcement on the wear surfaces that the Viper has.
Having only used it hanging about in a tree so far due to the lock down.its hard to say for sure, but the belay hoop does not sit centrally when tightened around my middle. So gear loops are off set. Knew this might be a small issue and thinking I should have gone for the Renegade. I guess time will tell once I can hit a real wall later in the year. Only 4 stars for the lack of a floating loop arrangement
