Which mystic harness to pick?

Postby laz » Wed Aug 28, 2013 3:19 am

Trying to decide on a new harness. Found several on live2kite for $99-145 and free shipping.

A bit about me average body dimensions. My riding style, aggressive, powered, big airs. No unhooked. Like something comfy as I ride in just a t shirt/no shirt a lot. Also snowkite in winter.

Would love some reviews. Open to other brands/models in same price range.

Thanks

Dakine Nitrous or the Ion equivalent. Seriously.

I've been riding the mystic warrior 3 for the past 2 and a half years and its the most comfortable harness I've used in the past 11 years. I cannot use it on my bare skin as the flexing rubber irritates my skin so need to use a second skin or wetsuit with this harness. Durability is of the highest standard and my warrior 3 only shows light signs of wear. I will probably easily use it for another two or three years when all my previous harnesses disintegrated after 6-12 months of use.

There are plenty of "which harness should i buy" threads on this forum. You can use the search feature to search for "harness" or "mystic" so ppl don't have to repeat themselves. [* the search feature seems broken today]

It depends on the shape of your body and not just on the riding style.
I use a warrior and love it.

I had warrior 1 and 2, this year I bought the majestic. It gives much more back support, more comfortable and don't slip, stay low and static at the same place, best harness for jumping.
If you want a harness to slip for wave rinding or riding toe side go with the warrior.

Perfectly agree with that. I also have the Majestic and with his memory foam it is extremely confortable and fit your back perfectly. I wear it over a Liquid Force neoprene impact vest and it doesn't slip at all which is effectively great for jumping but not for wave riding. A sliding hook is better for that anyway. The only drawback I have found on the Majestic is the size and weight of the harness, a little on the high side but I prefer the comfort so I'm fine with it.

Try one if you can!

Majestic for me also, stays low and hugs my back and can kite for hours, feels plush...as far as durability only time will tell, its been a couple of months and looks good still
