Re: What's the best waist harness?

Just moved from an old North Airstyler to an ION Apex CS15 and I really like it. Sort of took a chance but had an hour out at Camber Sands recently and was really happy.

Re: Real or not?

It just doesn’t rock my world....I was at a Doutone demo on Saturday and looked out for these.

ION Apex CS15 Harness
