Is there any seat harness for a guy that is compatible with the Mystic stealth spreader bar?

I will use the Nitro shorts harness with it sometimes when I'm traveling because the harness packs up super small. I kinda like it because it also brings the bar in closer.

Dakine Vega. I had to trim the wings down an inch on each side. Easy to cut with a utility knife,

It should work with just about any harness with standard webbing.

I use the Mystic stealth spreader surf bar with a Ion Radar. Works perfect.

You can probably just remove the “wing” piece instead of cutting it.

So I just tried it and it turns out you can't. The "wing piece and the backing rubber piece seem like two separate pieces, but they're in fact bonded into one piece.

So I just mounted it on a DaKine Vega without trimming anything and it works OK. The little top strap on the Vega is kinda in a weird spot, but it's not really a big deal.

Whether you have to cut the wings will depend on the size of the harness, size of the bar, and the size of your body. In my case I had to trim the wings so I could tighten it properly.

It is really easy to trim.

I think the only harness it won’t work with is one where a strap goes over the bar. Although I suppose you could figure out a way to use it with or without that strap.

The latching mechanism is reliable even when riding toe side with a bar a bit loose.

The rope has a nice amount of travel and is relatively easy to adjust and replace.

The wings and thick pad help keep it in place.

You need a t10 torx to remove the screws on back to service the spreader.
