Hi, guys!

My harness belt is showing serious wear now. It looks worse in reality, then on these photos, like 40% of its width already gone now.

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/9rrwm5uhfembu03/XFa4mPa8bn#/

Is there any way to fix it properly, without throwing out whole harness? What's best solution here? To put another belt and sew with old one?

Though not a difficult undertaking to repair consider the condition of the rest of the harness components first. I would suggest replacing all the webbing on your harness not just a stitch over. Stitching is easy with a hand awl which you can purchase for about $10. If you don't have the materials readily available in your area try http://www.sailrite.com/ they have always treated me well. They also have a good selection of products for kite repair.

what saildawg said. rip it out, put in new webbing with a hand awl (mine cost $25) it will be stronger than new.
