Harness recommendations for slim build


Recommended Posts

Hi, i am looking for some recommendations for a new harness. I am only very slim (28 inch waist) and am wondering if there are any paticular harnesses that will fit better. I was looking at the Treemotion  but i can see that its a one size fits all job, so not sure weather it would be best avoided in my situation or not? I am aware the best thing to do is to try before i buy but wanted some opinions first. Thanks 🙂

The tm has loads of adjustment. It'll be fine at your size. I was there once.


Whatever harness you get make sure you do a bit of research on how to correctly set it up for you. That's probably more important than which brand of harness you choose

I use a TM and I’ve got a 27in waist. As Joe says there is plenty of adjustment within the harness. I would say anything under 26in waist and the main strap across the waist wouldn’t really be tight enough.

Thanks for all the replies and suggestions. I think the next step will be to try on a few somewhere, whilst eating some pies. 🙂

It's the best way for sure. As already mentioned take the time to adjust the harness properly, it makes a huge difference that a lot of people overlook.
