Has anyone ordered a few harnesses from a shop/online store, tried them all on at home and then send the ones that were right back?

I feel like there would be a standard return policy or at least you could explain to a shop what you were trying to do.

It works for me when I am buying shoes or other clothes online.
It would be a good service for those who simply do not have the luxury of living near a shop or a shop with a wide selection like some of the bigger online stores.

Would say Ride engine or other hardshells. My initial thought when using it for the first time was just Wow!

Just did 4 days of nuking bam bam bam gusty winds 15-18MS or 28-38 knots where i could barely get my 7 and 9 GTS4 on the water for about 4ish hours a day. Virtually no rib or back soreness (given your core strength is ok) . I did about 600 jumps or so.

Cant go wrong if you find one that fits your body, it takes so much off the load off.

I would say try the harness on, bodies are different, so a perfect fit for one guy might not be the best for another...
