    Nice picture. Is it 8 years old now?
    What do you think turning un-hooked and heading dead downwind just before the rig flip tells us about harness choice then?
    We'd love to hear.

    Just took delivery of a Dakine XT seat harness, due to a few lower back issues which may or may not have been exacerbated by use of a waist harness.

    Initial impressions were most favourable, enjoyed the ride and no back pain. Admittedly a fairly low wind flat water sort of day.

    So think I am converted.

    ION Radium select, got to be the most comfortable harness I have ever tried, always had Dakines in the past but I will never go back to them, do miss the sliding bar a bit though.

    For the flat water I'm using the XT seat for the extra back support and for waves I am using the NRG Waist.

    I guess the only thing I am surprised is how everybody talks about the freedom with the waist harness... I have been sailing for 20+ years in very simple - by todays standard - seat harness, then was converted to waist which I believe helped me lots to get rid of the toilet stance and love to hook in even when not planing nowadays...
    Using a T4, i make it relatively tight, and I don't have much problem with it riding up (although I wish I had more waist ), or limiting breathing, but overall, I would say the seat harness has never ever limited any movement for me (with the thin leg straps), while leaning forward e.g. to pick up the kit on the beach with the waist harness is not fun... So all in all, I find the waist harness to be more limiting in movement than my old simple seat harness...
