Same here. Seat harness all the way. Love to ride powered and jump. Super comfortable. Suggest you try another brand.

it's 100% not posture, but thanks for the input.

When jumping, it slowly creeps up jump after jump, so posture is out of the equation.

I think trying some other brands might be the trick and I'll try keeping the straps loose.

Matth.....are you jumping with yours?

Matteo....who makes the Vega?

Thanks.....Bob
Yes I jump with mine( sadly only about 25 feet)
Most of my friends who are regulars on the North America woo leaderboards wear either seats or board shorts. harnesses...Dylan, Dani, kiterMike , Brian A. There also in their forties , fifties, and sixtys and prefer function over fashion :lol: :lol: :lol:
Yeah well try body dragging with a seat harness, or doing free style with a seat, or even a kiteloop. Yeah, there is much more than just "fashion" isn't there? :nono:

Using seat harness ( Dakine and hybrid North) for 15 years with no omelet problems.
Lately done extreme body dragging running away from an hydrofoil chasing me on top of a little monster wave (I even expelled myself out of the water).
Still no omelet issues.
I think its the way the thigh straps go around the legs. Yeah,...try different harnesses.
Worst comes to worst take some Acetaminophen before the session 8)

Don't forget to use a touch of Loctite 243 on your harness. YKIMS. :lol:

Thanks guys.....Looks like trying other harnesses might be the key. Thought the Fusion was one of the best though.

Well just about everyone I know that loves seat harnesses don't do any tricks, but just jump around all day and then go home. No thanks, I like kiting to be challenging. Have fun wearing your diaper harness,

and when I see you struggling to body drag like a worm on a hook I am going to laugh while I'm busting out new moves with my kiteboard.

I am sorry you hurt your ribs Bob, hope they heal quickly. I went through three Fusion harnesses over many years and never had a riding up problem with them. Try loosening the leg straps while maintaining a good tension on the spreader bar straps and see if that helps.

ps - as far as solid support, the Fusion is hard to beat. Although I used to have to wear neoprene shorts to avoid wearing a hole in the side of my leg. Don't have that problem with the NP seat harness. Good luck

I found the new fusion put to much pressure on my hips, so I switched to a NP gravity. I have found the gravity sits up a little higher like a waist and has proven to be much more comfortable for me. I also love NP spreader bars . I

I'd like to see video of guys in seat harnesses who can't body drag. That would be something truly unique to see.
