So I like the balanced feeling and support of a waist harness, but I need it tight to keep from riding up - so much so that my breathing is restricted. I need a seat to hold it down. So Im looking for a waist harness with a seat, or a seat harness with a high hook and back support. Recomendations?

For years, the hnds-down favorite pick of one magazines testers was DaKines Surf Seat, which combines waist hook height, a BIG honkin back support with lumbar pad, and enough of a seat to keep it all down where it belongs so ya can actually BREATHE.

I sail almost around the calendar, mostly powered to the max on small sails, and have been on the same Surf Seat for four years now. Ive heard their Xtreme Seat is even better, but have a major obstacle to trying it out: my backup harness is an unused Surf Seat, so it looks like about 2005 before I need to buy another harness.

Definitely go with the DaKine Surf Seat. It is the best and has the best of both worlds with waist and seat harnesses. They are not expensive for harnesses either.

Prozac, doesnt the fact you like to step in dog shit make you somewhat less atractive, despite the chest harness?

Actually, no, I cant. Ive never paid any real attention to the Xtreme simply because Im so satisfied with my surf seat. When I need another harness, Ill look into it then. As for the Thermoform ... I cant wear a waist harness. They KILL my back within one reach -- just a personal thing I cant explain. I also perfer to breathe, and rib pressure opposes that.

Besides, after prozaks rant, surely no one over 16 years old will ever want to wear a waist harness again, right?

I really like the DaKine Thermo waist. very good and doesnt ride up. I also have the Reactor bar, which helps a lot. This harness has an optional seat that can be velcrod in. I didnt try that, but I didnt think I would ever use it.
