Mystic 2011 Warrior 3 vs Shadow

Postby alexprehn123 » Tue Nov 02, 2010 2:20 am

My Warrior 2 is falling apart my handle pass leash attachment ripped off :( now i have to attach it to the spreader bar and my leash keeps getting in the way :( and my power belt has no elastic at all since i have bought it. :( which harness should i get the Warrior 3 or the Yori Zoon Shadow which is more comfortable and wont break like my other current harness?

-
I just sold my 2010 Mystic Shadow to a local kiter this evening.
It is the most comfortable waist harness I have ever come across
and it stays down, too - I highly recommend it.

I plan to purchase a 2011 Mystic Warrior III this week, as it now has more padding along the edges.
(I was interested in the new Mystic Code 1 with BOA feature, but that is slated for Spring 2011 release)

I will report back here once I obtain the Warrior III.

NOTE: Don't toss or drop these harnesses on the pavement when unloading your gear. :nono:
The extra comfy top & bottom edge material may tear (did that on one side of the lower edge of my Shadow)

Pretty much anything you do will cause the design on the back to peel off. this is true for all Mystic harnesses.
To some people it matters, but for me its all about comfort. I preferred the 2010 Shadow over the Warrior. I've had it since jan 2010 and have probably kited with it over 50 days. Its still very comfortable and I imagine it will last me at least another season, maybe even two

Hi Marc, so the Shadow wasn't that comfortable then?
I need to choose a new harness too and I'm quite keen on the shadow, but you reckon the Warrior III is more paddy around the edge? This is a very important feature for me as I need to change my old Warrior I either with a new Mystic or Pro-Limit... or Ion.... Any advice or feedback would be much appreciated! Here in UK we don't have shops where you can go and try several brands... it's all online pretty much, making it a hassle to choose new products!
Cheers

Just try it man. It is really individual if you like a harness or not. I've tried the Shadow last year and didn't like it at all. Warrior 2 is great on the other hand, most comfortable harness out there for me.

So reading posts on the internet won't help you really. Harness is a part of clothing and you've got to try it, just like shoes.

Thanks!
