Having to use the leg straps on warm summer days is no solution. The whole point of a waist harness is easy on and go. The leg straps are great for when you have to don the drysuit.
Plenty of good waist harnesses don’t ride up.
Owned the session and had to let it go. The build is great, but the chafe left be with bloody wounds from the seam on the inside rubbing while riding toe side. The strap needing to be threaded through the buckle is also slow and cumbersome.
Get rid of the chafe seams/materials, Beef it up and add a proper lumbar pad so you don’t “require” leg straps for proper support and positioning. The Dakine pyro is a decent benchmark to shoot for.
Go with some sort of power clip or plate through plate design at the main buckle for easy on/off.
Your onto something with the optional leg straps and how you configured them. The harness itself is bomber but lacks support on its own, chafes like a bitch (I still have a scar) and the buckle is just slow compared to what it could be.
