After some recommendations on the above for the Mrs - she's tried the Petzl one (8003?) and found the buckles on the leg loops make high steps difficult and uncomfortable (more so), also all the straps are plain webbing i.e. not over-sewn with comfy rounded material like most harnesses. Main thing is the buckles - we can't seem to find many adult chest harnesses with a different design to the Petzl one.

In reply to Matt Vigg: we preferred Edelrid after trying the Petzl

Ta, will check it out.
In reply to Matt Vigg: My Missus was looking at the Kong Sierra Duo: http://www.kong.it/doc/KONG_SIERRA.pdf

Quite a few different full body harnesses on their site, although, like the Petzl and Edelrid, none of them really seem to have much in the way of comfortable padding as they're essentially work harnesses.

Interestingly, there's a couple which do have waist belts, but also have the full-body shoulder straps and the high tie-in point, which might work if you leave the waist belt loose? I don't know though!

Ta, lots of choice there at least. Found this too - Mountain Mama are going to be making a harness specifically for pregant women, although the pics don't look hugely different to what's currently available:

Not available yet but should be sometime soon.

SAR make some great padded full body work harnesses (i use them for my day job) not sure how well they would fit with a baby bump but they are certianly comftable (more likly to find them on rope acess stockers than climbing stockists)
