I have a ronstan racing. Its nice and comfortable but has a lot of extra adjustments that can get in the way

Thanks, is it possible to mount the quick release on it? Another dilemma I'm encountering is not being able to try them on due to the local store not carrying them.

I have a Gul Stokes, I'm happy with it. It's not a high end model at 115$, but for a recreational sailor, it does the job.

I have one of these as well. It isn't anything fancy and isn't all that comfortable but it is good for the price.

I will be racing in this harness on 420s next week if that helps also. I'm most likely a medium in everything which creates a dilemma with the Gill because they're on back order.

I'm probably gonna go with the Ronstan racing harness or the Zhik T2 and have the quick release mounted on at the dinghy shop. Does any one own both of those or know how they compare?
What do you think optikid?

Also no offense to the hobie harness just looking for the most comfortable(as far as comfort goes with harnesses).

I ended up going with the Zhik T2 and I'm gonna bring it to the Dinghy Shop in Amityville to see what quick release can be out in it(they don't carry harnesses currently). Thanks for the feedback all.

Hobie harnesses are the same design as aquata but the aquata is better quality and cheaper
