“this harness CAN be used for outdoor climbing, but he does not recommend for mastering any big outdoor projects.”Chris Taljaard
For example, if you are planning to crush a lead climb and work on a big project where you are taking some gnarly falls, it could get a bit uncomfortable as the padding is thick.

“If you are a climbing instructor working on the floor and you need something nice and comfy that you can wear all day, this is a perfect fit.”Chris Taljaard.
