Have people seen the new Stealth Harness for sale somewhere? can't find anything yet, only this one video.
Yeah I saw a Stealth harness vid from Hood River a couple weeks ago.

I'm 100% happy with my Majestic X, but I would buy one of these too just for travel. Without fail the last day of any kite trip is windy and we always try to sneak another session in. Every other harness quadruples in weight when it's wet and doesn't have time to dry. This would be a great option. I've tried on the Legend before and found it quite comfortable too, I'm sure the Stealth will be just as nice.

Does the stealth bar work with a 2016 Majestic?
Thats not what Mystic indicates.
I also don't think it has room to put the flap in and the straps also run much wider with your harness.
Do you know the earliest compatible model/year?

2017 is when Mystic started to switch over some of their harnesses to a dual 1" strap design (e.g. Warrior & Majestic X). The Stealth bar is only compatible with the dual 1" straps, so any 2017-present Mystic harness with that strap design will work. I have the 2017 Majestic X and the Stealth fits. I also know some using the Stealth bar with other brands and the 2017 Warrior and have not encountered any issues.

We were at the dealer meeting a month or so ago and it was mentioned that it would not be till at least the spring time '20 but we will have to wait and see.

With stealth bar do you set up the harness once and then just use the clip to put the harness on or you have to undo the webbing and tighten it again every time like with other harnesses? Saw a stealth bar today in a shop and seller said that you need to undo and tighten the webbings very time anyway. Thought that the point of stealth at was to eliminate exactly that annoying part about harnesses. Did I misunderstood?

@NorwayIsCold
No - you adjust straps once and afterwards just use the clip. As there is enough lever you even do not have to adjust the webbing when changing the thickness what you wear, e.g. naked skin/rashvest vs thick wetsuit. With the lever you are able to close the mechanism in all scenarios.

I think if you get it really tight it can be hard to open without loosening a little bit.

Do you know which other models/brands it works with offhand? Ion? Dakine?

It will work with dakine and I think ion also uses the same size webbing.

I had to modify the wings to fit my dakine seat harness. If I was fatter it wouldn’t have mattered.
