/ Harnesses HELP!!
Can you clear up for me, have you bought it yet? Or did you go to buy it and back out because you weren't sure?
If you bought it online, or just without trying it Im sure your wall could help you out?
If you haven't got it from the shop yet, ask for help! Anywhere selling harnesses should be able to fit them.
Worst case, you have one that doesnt fit, so sell it on here to get some money back and go to a shop for help.
I have a renegade and a viper and didnt notice any size difference at all. Perhaps it is unthreaded from the retaining elastics on one of the harnesses and not the other?
You can tell if its on right if you can get your hand down between you and the waist belt but not much more. you also shouldn't be too close to ethier extreme (close to the maximum or minimum size for the harness)
As said above if you haven't already bought it then go to a shop where you can at least try it on hanging and get the shop staff to help you
Hey, thing with the renegade (i've had 2!) is that it has a floating waist belt! when you do it up hold the belay lope and slide the gear loops round to the left making sure the belay loop stays at the fron, you'll notice that you have more tape to tighten up?? Just a suggestion ;)
A small Renegade feels loose!? I have the exact harness (albeit a few years old now so the sizing might have been tweaked or something) and it fits me perfectly, and I am as small as small comes.
As said above, fiddling with the floating padding may well give you more webbing to tighten. Also as said above, if you can't pull it down then you aren't going to die (from falling out of your harness at least).
