/ Good trad harness?
I'll warn you about arcteryx harness's.....
Once you try one on, you're wallet becomes a lot lighter.
There second to none
Is the new Renegade 2 only available with ziplock buckles?
That would be a shame. DMM got my money last time as the Renegade was one of the few harnesses available with proper grownup buckles.
The camp air cr, adjustable leg loops, weights about 240g, cost less than £50, unless you want to climb big walls it will carry everthing you need, used it trad and winter - great piece of kit
Adding two ice screw clippers to a standard 4 gear loop harness works really well for trad. You can rack 4-5 short extenders on each clipper which means you are then not overly constrained by just having the 4 loops. You can do this with the majority of modern all-round harness.
As for which harness to recommend, my only advice is try lots on. If you are a fairly standard body-shape then you shouldn't have any shortage of options. Equally if you are a 'non-standard' body-shape, like I am, then you will struggle.
