Hi. Hope your all well. Looking to book in my Climbing and Aerial Rescue course so in the market for equipment. Can I ask what harness you use and can you recommend one? 

Many Thanks.

Impossible question to answer as everybody is different. What one climber will like another will detest. Best bet is to go along to Honey’s or Jones’s etc and try some on. I climbed on an American import harness for years before moving to a treemotion and they are at opposite ends of the spectrum. Try them on before you part with your cash

Book with a provider who has equipment for hire, that way you'll at least find out what you find comfortable or not, features you found useful etc when looking at parting with your own cash. You'll also get to discuss what others are using and their thoughts, trainers and assessors will be a mine of invaluable information. For my own use I've had a couple of treemotions and a Petzl Seqouia, both have strengths and weaknesses it just comes down to where your priorities are. 

Well worth trying before you buy.
