My standard response is: "You really have to try the harness on to see if it is right for you."

There are so many harnesses out there and what one person willl swear by might only make you swear.

That said, I RARELY hear people say negative things after buying a New Tribe harness. They have a good recipe!

love

Personally I prefer the Elevation. I learnt to climb on a rock climbing harness and like the fact that the elevation has leg loops that are tightened around the legs, unlike the new tribe (personal preference). I find it really comfy compared to the webbing abomination I was climbing in.

Like Nick said "You really have to try the harness on to see if it is right for you."
Unfortunately I didn’t have this option as stores in Australia don’t have many of the harness’s you guys get in the US to try on. So I took a bit of a gamble got the elevation and it has so far seamed to pay off.

So if you can, go and have a look, feel and sit in a range of harnesses. It may save you a lot of frustration later on up in the tree's.

My local Vermeer store has several saddles to pick from and ropes hanging from the ceiling to test each saddle. That was my concern - will I like how it feels in the tree. My first saddle was ordered online.
