Yeah not that easy to demo harnesses. Mystic does not appeal to me. Good point on the nitrous since I have an old one...just remembered.
I have ridden a NP windsurfing race harness last two seasons. This year I renewed it for it:

I highly recommend it for racing. Very, very light
and still comfortable.
For me, important difference – a hook is suspended at least 15cm than a waist harness hook.
It gives me advantage riding downwinds when pushing hips outside a board allow to drive a kite much faster from a bottom to the top of his sinusoidal track.
– a cleat is closer to my hands
- No pain in a back after even long sessions,
- It does not lift up to a chest as some waist harnesses.
I do not recommend normal seating harnesses.
- borrow any race one from a RSX or FW rider for a try.
