We can only advise, you need to try them on for yourself. 

All of us are different shapes, tall and short.

This. You might buy the "best" trousers but if they don't fit properly you'll be uncomfortable and not able to move. Lots of people will recommend Pfanners but not the right shape for me at all.

Same with harness.

Try before you buy Sam.

It’s the only way.

 

I know your location doesn’t help, but Treekit are in Christchurch, definitely worth popping over.

 

Dan is spot on, the ‘best’ are the best for you.

I love my Pfanners, but Dan is about 3 feet taller and 10 stone heavier than me. *

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

* Weight difference possibly slightly exaggerated for effect.
