I use the new Session2.0 harness, it is working out great for me, I have had two lower back surgeries. I like a low hook position with it under my beer belly, I use the leg straps to help distribute the load onto my hips. You can tighten the leg straps around your legs, but also, you can lengthen the leg straps were they attach to the harness separately from were you tighten around your legs , so you can have the harness ride higher on you torso. The Harness is very adjustable.
The hook height position is determined based on were you wear the harness on your torso.
It seem if you are skinny and younger, people go for a higher position and do not need the leg straps. if you are older and have a gut, you would be more inclined with a lower position and leg strap.
It is way better than the Dakine Pyro seat harness I used to use.
Also the spreader bar and hook are made beefier than dakines and the OR has a very good spreader bar pad too.
OR Comes with a safety knife, that Dakine now charges extra for.
Looks good too. Very good construction quality
