Great article.Climbing kit is entirely personal and you see every concievable combination out there but the harness is like a favourite chair.I still have my Willans T22 somewhere (Full body).Had a couple of Weavers then a couple of Tree Austria and settled on a Sequoia for the last few years.Fantastic pictures by the way.

I've still got my GQ. Was marginally more comfortable and definitely lighter than the Willans we all started out with back in the day.
Thankfully my climbing days are long over.

I looked in horror at the Weavers ! Like some bondage fantasists idea of a harness . GQ made the first leg-loops one after the standards changed - it were not aweful but my Petzel AVAO is my choice now . K

Willans T22 is all I have ever tried . Thankfully Isaac Newton keeps me on the ground for ever now !

Wow I remember looking at the Weaver and thinking what a horrible rigid instrument for medieval torture. I knew an hour in that would terminate my tree career.

Funny now you've mentioned it, been married 22 years, no kids ! I only looked in the catalogue- never tried one on . Is that voodoo or something?
