Hi. I am looking to get a seat harness for snowkiting and was thinking to get it online, since we do not have kite stores here. (and it is probably cheaper)
I was wondering what size should I get? My pants size is 32-33.
Since I will be putting it over the pants and a coat, should I get a size large than my pants size?
(so instead on M to get L)?
Also, do you think seat harness will work better than waist harness for snowkiting?

get a waist harness unless you have a bad back. Stay away from the diaper!

I do agree that the diaper style like the Dakine Fusion are not good for snow. That was my first harness. But... I've been loving the lower-profile seat harness like the ozone (and possibly the mystic although I haven't tried it yet). I generally forget I'm wearing it. I've even hiked a bit and forgot it was on.

Could you tell me what size you got? I mean, since you wear it over a ski jacket or the pants, do you get a one or two sizes up you waist pants size? How does it work?

The ozone is one size fits all and is very adjustable. It's fit every person I know that's tried it so far.

You are right, but it seem to be just for snowkiting ( and not meant for water use )

It just doesn't make sense to get two harness that do the same.

The Ozone Access SB harness will fit him fine ... there's a couple of big boys I know who it doesn't fit :lol:
Also, Peter Lynn do a range of harnesses too - apparently the Divine is very popular with the buggy crowd ... who wear it over clothing ;)

Well this is the snow/land forum. :D But seriously... You're probably right. I used mine on water a few times and it didn't stay up as well as it did with snowpants and jacket. Plus, I agree it doesn't appear to be made for water use. I've been using the Dakine diaper on the water.

the North seat transformer is good as you can remove the seat part and wear it as a waist harness

I got the North waist harness. Got a good deal on it. Got is in Medium size (I am 32"). I figured that I will be either wearing it over rush guard or underneath a ski jacket over ski pants and base layer. (many advised me not to wear it over the jacket, since it accumulates snow while riding and freezes.) M = 32-34 which will work both ways.
