Weird Warrior Harness Issue

Postby hmattar » Sun Jan 11, 2009 2:21 am

Hey guys, i've been using mystic harness(the shield seat) for some time now.
Beggining of december my riding buddy bought an Warrior M size 2008 and i tried it asap and loved it.
Went to the same supplier and asked for the same harness, same color, same size.

Now the problem comes:
With my friend harness the velcro belt (mystic call it battle belt) closes nicely.
Around 4 inches one side of the velcro cover the other side of the velcro.
But when mine arrived, the battle belt is WAY WAY smaller and it barely closer with when i try harder(tops 1 inch one side over the other).

Both harness are the SAME, same size, color, year, model. The other things on the harness are the same exact size except the battle belt that mine is smaller than his.

Would that be a manufacturing error? Any clue?
If anyone have this harness and can measure the battle belt that would help a lot!

Good winds for everyone!

I would take it back to your dealer or if you don't live close to your dealer take some photos and send them to the shop where you bought it. Maybe take your friends harness and show both belts stretched out side by side. If it really is sewn on too short, it shouldn't be a problem to have it replaced.

quick tip for you , the harnesses can be the same model and year and vary in size because the could have been made in a different batch that same year and the two sizes even if they are mediun one might run bigger or smaller just compensate by getting one bigger or changing it www.skybanditz.com :bye:

Hi there,

I've just got a Warrior 2 in medium and I have the same problem. The Harness fits fine but the battle belt is way too short....I can barely get it to overlap by an inch with no wetsuit on and I'm a 30" waist.

I contacted the shop I bought it just 5min ago on email so noply yet....did you ever find out if it was a bad batch or not and how did you go about sorting out a new one?

those belts do stretch quite a lot after couple of uses, so maybe you just need to give it some time..

The guy that sold me had another warrior that was the same size as the "small one".
But some guys here replied me in PM with measures and they match the larger one.
The supllier said that there were nothing he could do.

Great....so I'll see if I can send it back...if not then I'll be contacting Mystic direct as thats just not on...I can ride with it but whats the point if its not as comfortable as advertised.
