Great Harness!
Initially picked this up for a summer sports harness to replace my ill-fitting MAMMUT Focus and Mirage harness and now I use this all the time. Perfect fit, and so easy to put on and take off via the slide-bloc buckles even with big alpine gloves on.

NOTE: As of 2008 the sizing is way off on the Baffin Harness sold in the USA. XS-M will fit all waists from minimum size to 34/35 inches and the M-XL is actually more like a USA XL/XXL and made for 36 inch waists and up.
I'm a 33 inch waist and ended up exchanging for the XS-M which fits perfect!

POSITIVES: Style, Function, Easy to put on/take off. Plenty of gear loops, light, Comfortable (doesn't ride high like most harness), Fully adjustible. Price is cheap. At $60 this Mammut brand's flagship climbing harness this harness will definately out do other harness costing twice as much.

NEGATIVES: Fit seems to be way off for the marked sized on the harnesses sold in the USA Market. Good quality harness but doesn't have that lifetime status feel to it(compared to my Petzl Dyonisis, which lasted 10+ years of very hard use, the Baffin may give about 5-7 years of similar hard use).
