What about these https://www.forward-wip.com/produit/win ... c98ba2045f ?
I just got one of these. Tried it for the first time today. It was my first time using a harness, so can't really compare to others.

Trying to power upwind with 6m Strike, it was a little harsh on my back. I think I'll add some padding as shown in the posts above.

Other than that, hook worked really well, didn't get in the way much climbing up on the board.

Just googled the topic out of curiousity... how come a wing waist leash can cost half of what that wip belt does?! OK, some heavier webbing and a plastic molded hook, but 80 bucks (69€) is well overpriced!
For comparison, their 50N vest is cheaper and looks pretty good

Here is the first waist leash I ran into. 39$

Long live DIY!
