Topic - Find me a thread back buckle harness

climbingronnie - on 08 Apr 2014
I'm in need of a replacement harness for my old DMM Renegade Pro.

Call me fussy, but I really like having a harness with a buckle that has to be threaded and doubled back at the waist. Not because I don't trust a pre-threaded auto lock type of buckle, but because I like to be able to undo the waist completely to put the harness on. Why? Because I'm a girl, and I have curves - there is a 12inch difference between my hip and my waist measurement! So a harness that is big enough to pull on over my hips (untucking all my layers in the process), then ends up with loads of webbing 'tail' that needs tucking away once it is snug on my waist.

I'm struggling to find a decent all round harness (winter/trad/alpine) with a thread back buckle at the waist. Other criteria would be:

5 gear loops minimum (the more the better!)
Either a W's fit or a men's with a decent length belay loop (such as on the Renegade)
Adjustable leg loops

Anyone got any suggestions?
