please write more - if you have longer experience. Especially if you have not some blood circulation issues - etc...
Also what is your normal harness? Seat or waist.
i use a mystic seat harness attached to the steath (rope) bar.
i've also climbed(in a gym) much longer than i've been kiting.. never had any type issues wearing a harness for hours(and they are much more comfy to me than any kite harness i've found)
imo, there is nothing comparable to quality of a arc'teryx or mammoth(for example) in the kiting industry... they make good stuff.
many of the things we use in kiting...were "borrowed" from other sports.
i'm not doing any megaloops on a foil(actually..not much kite power is needed if using today's bigger wings )...i just need something to keep me securely and comfortably attached to my kite...and does not interfere with my ability to quickly detach from that kite.
my only question is that we often kite in a corrosive environments (harsh salt water)
the loopo ,at least (i believe), is made from the same material as kite lines.....so we'll see
