Mystic Code 1 harness with a ripped out strap - possible?

Postby alexeyga » Wed Jan 15, 2014 4:35 am

Just wondering if anybody has seen other cases of Mystic Code 1 failed in a similar fashion?

Basically the main strap is ripped right out. I've seen cracked and twisted spreader bars, i've seen main straps worn and thorn, but I'm having hard time imagining what one has to do in order to rip it out like this!!! :?:

Seen it on a few harnesses, they don't last for ever, how old is it??

A couple of "deep in-land" seasons. I'm just rather surprised to see it failing this way and curious if it's something "normal" for these harnesses.

I've blown out the stitching twice on an older Cabrinha harness, just by getting nailed by a big gust while riding. I used my Speedy Stitcher to put it back together stronger than new. I feel like the overall, kite harness quality is a joke compared to climbing equipment.
