Mi Warrior harness is almost 10 yo
I think mine is 12 years old or something, still looking great.
I'm thinking about replacing it because I'd like to try a hard shell.
But from the looks of it, I think it could definitely reach 15 years.

Not as long as they use to! but it depends on so many factors.

My warrior II harness is still going strong after about 11yrs.
My ion boardshorts harness is falling apart after after 1 season.

Mystic Warrior II. I have one I bought in 2008 and used all the time for 10 years, and it is still in pretty good functional condition. They made that one a little bit too well, I guess.

With zero maintenance & lots of sand - but only 50-70 sessions a year, after 7 years my harness straps are showing some wear.

2-3 years until belts break if you jump big.. always get the ones with 2 belts on each side.. saves you a swim (proven twice :-))
RE old years - total garbage for the price...

Dakine seat harness.. twenty years in next year.. leg clips are now permanently clipped in with cable ties and so have to step in & out of and velco is a bit dodgy but still works.

Probably had its busiest year this year as well
