It still needs an actual latch mechanism for the spreader. I'm not the only person has had the PU tube type come undone unexpectedly...

Makes me wonder about your attention to detail.
Probably an intern that did their website. Since I got into advertising/marketing, I've learned not to hold companies accountable to their shitty websites since most of them just outsource.

The wear of the harness is very high, especially for his high price.
If this is still true, I suspect it is because they need a firmer layer of padding between the softer top layer and the hard shell.
Especially around the edge maybe?

For me, it hasn't worn any differently than the DaKines I have owned over the years. I've been very happy with it.
I'm a weekend warrior, though, not out there killing it every day like some of you.

I have one of the original hand made ones from Coleman who created Engine, since 2013. Never had my PU spreader hoop come loose ever.

You wouldn't be if you tried Mystic's Click Bar 4.0 or Pro Limit's Fat Bar.....

Not baggin' on anyone or RE, but I've said it before - The strap and closure system is what's holding back the RE from being the end all kite harness. I have a Majestic X and I like it, but the RE had a better lumber and softer padding. If RE had the beefier straps and a quality closure I'd go back.

Might try a Pro Limit Vapor if anyone in US ever has one. I loved my Kitewaist Pro harness I had for years.

As I've never had any issues with my 2016 RE strap or closure system, I suspect it's fine for 99% of riders. I believe you that there are issues for a certain style of rider, though. They should make a beefed up team version to appeal to the riders pushing it so hard that they overpower the straps. It'd be an easy side-by-side choice to make at purchase.

I can imagine that once you have had a harness open up on you, you'd be hesitant to use it again. Would be an easy problem for a designer to address, which I guess is why they went to the metal to metal connection. (bummer for me, as I love those soft flexible light PU tubes.)
