I bought myself a B360a for my 25th birthday. Fantastic harness, you climb in it and it feels like you aren't wearing anything at all. I wanted the 360 because of the 6 gear loops but as it turns out, each gear loop is so huge that 4 would have been more than enough.

Only problem I found is that if you hang in it for long enough, no matter what fancy design they have in the leg loops, the same thing happens that you get with every other harness, your legs start hurting.

Ridiculously good harnesses.
I have last year's R-320 and, even though there's nothing wrong with it, am thinking of buying the S-220. A bit addictive!

I actually ordered it from the States. Including delivery and import fees, it came to about 150, which will be the RRP here when it is launched.

150 for a harness are you f'ing serious?!
Your mental mate... Next time your feeling flush by some crack or something fun

Yeah, well, I thought that when I first saw the price. In fact, I thought that when I saw the price of the "cheaper" ones they make, at 90-100 quid. Then I somehow justified it because it was my 25th. :-P

Well happy with it, though.

I always thought that Arcyteryx was a bit of a daft make. Bad fit (american fit) and way over engineered for what it is to pathetic levels. A jacket is a jacket.


But the Harnesses, god almighty, head and sholder way better than any make out there. Theyre both lighter, much much more comfortable and take lots less space. The only annoyong thing is the gear loops, but thats a taste thing I guess.

If you ever want to buy something expensive buy these harnesses!!
