I have a chance to buy one of these but I noticed that there are no straps that go between your legs... is this OK? won't the harness start going up too much? the pull of the kite is very vertical, so how do waist harnesses feel in general??

I have had mine for a couple of mths now -
totally satifyed - suprb fit

i am 75gks, 6' 42" chest - i bought a size large

floats me like a cork too - :grin:

the harness bit sits under your ribcage - so it does'nt ride up - i love it ! - i even use it as an impact vest for wakeboarding too - just remove the spreader bar - its so comfy - I would recomend it to anyone - only prob being if you just want a waist harness for sunny climates etc as you cannot detach the harness / vest - its all one piece

Well I live in Poland and I'm getting if from the Polish distributor...
Thanks for the info, I think I'll go for it... they want 120 USD for one that was used once! I think that's a pretty good deal...?

I tried one on, didn't ride with it, but noticed that the size medium seems a bit small with just a T-shirt on. I usually take a size medium harness in DaKine, so you might consider they run tight. I also noiced that the harness seems to run high on me, and I am pretty short at 5'6". Like I said I didn't use it on the water but did hang from the harness on a line putting my full body weight of 160 lbs on it. For me the hook seems to high, and the whole vest seemed to want to ride up on me. Maybe it would hold better with a wetsuit on, but it would have definately been way tight with one on. I think optional leg straps would have been a choice to include with this setup.

Yes, it seems best suited to waist harness users. Hopefully they'll come out with a seat version, or at least an add-on seat (like they did for the ThermoForm & Nexus).
