Same as 2018/2019 but the 2020 does not have that diagonal crossover strap through the spreader bar, now the attachment point for a side strap is lower to help keep the spreader bar in place without the diagonal crossover strap.

For 2020 the spreader bar is sold separately.


Do you like this color?

cool color! id buy it now if i had it in my hands!!
i like colors, i dislike the fact that everything in the harness and wetsuit department is predominantly black!
Jedi order needs to brighten up!!
is coloured neoprene more expensive than black ones?

Thank God - I have 3 hook spreader bars just sitting around b/c I get a new one with every harness but I've switched to the Option rope slider and don't need them.

I like the color.

Is Dakine actually trying again?

For the past few years, their harnesses have had a lifespan of less than one year of serious use in harsh conditions. I think maybe 2012 or 2011 what's the last year they produce something that would last 3 Seasons.

Honestly, I quit buying their stuff once I figured out how to just get a bunch of webbing, a stitch awl, and reinforcing / replacing the super cheap webbing they use.

Anybody have any insight as to whether or not Dakine is actually cleaning up their act?

the colour would be a neat addition to the existing colours.

but please make the neopren part of the leg straps a bit bigger (seemed unnecassery small in the last years version and even started to rip off, if the webbing leg straps were loosen up in order to get the connection point higher up) and either add an adjustable buckle to the webbing piece located over the butt or get rid of it.

good move to sell the harness without spreader bar.
