Just wondering if anyone else has had quality issues with the Aquila harness?

The front gear loops on mine have had the rigid material snap from taking it in and out of my bag over the past two years. I've been in touch with the distributor who have simply told me to tape it up as it isn't safety critical and they won't cover it in warranty. Anyone else had this happen?

Mainly curious as I'm probably looking for a new harness and thinking to stay away from petzl if it's a through the board issue.

No issues with damage, but I do find the gear loops annoyingly far back on the Aquila. I think it's a design floor rather than an expanding waist line that is the issue!

I would agree that they're pretty far back. Find that the left is further back then the right as well...

Finding the gear loops way too far back on my Edelrid Orion too,.. which is no good for trad, but ok for sport.
