This is an OK harness - it was the second harness I owned. The Targa is a good all-around harness. It does everything well and is fairly comfortable, however I feel it is comparable to harnesses from other companies (BD Momentum, ClimbHigh, etc) that cost less... The petzl harnesses are slightly more money, but are much more comfortable (in my opinion), and you can buy a comparable harness for under $50. I don't think it is a great buy for the price.

This is the only harness I own. I have had it for over five years. It rules. I've never had a problem with it. I've been sport climbing, gym climbing and trad climbing with it. It has withstood all I've dished out. It's taken a 20-foot whipper, an hour hanging belay while bringing two climbers up to me. It's been through squeeze chimneys and taken me to 5.11d. Needless to say, I am very pleased with it.

only harness i've owned, 5 years strong now. great harness with plenty of room to rack your trad gear and comfortable for a full day multipitch. i highly recommend it. if you are looking for adjustable leg loops the verro is the same harness with adj. loops.

Large harness loops. Haul loop in the rear. Closed c ell padding. Owned for over ten years and still going strong with an average of 150 days a year of climbing. Best harness on the market, best buy for the $$$.
