I tried it and it was love at the first sight. It just fits me perfectly. I did a quick analysis and it looked to be very well built and strong. I ended up buying his harness and now Iâ€™m verry happy with it and would like to recommend a trial of this model to anyone shopping for a comfortable harness.
I tried all harnesses available in the local shops - North (horror with the air padding), Mystic (not exactly comfy), Dakine (did not fit) - and the ION Hummer was the one I liked best.
I am particularly very happy with the spreader bar closing mechanism - no sharp corners, no possibility for the harness to open (like with Mystic or Pat Love), similar in spirit to the Prolimit mechanism.
When tightened properly, the harness does not ride up one bit (individual mileage may vary...)
Due to the way the spreader bar is fixed to the harness, it does not "roll" or "twist" up - and that without the help of an additional strip (as, e.g. Mystic use).
I have yet to ride the harness with only shorts and shirt, but expect that it will be as comfy as when being ridden in a wet suit.
