I have a 30in waist, with the M (28.5-32) I have it cranked all the way down to the point the right gear loop and belay loop are awkwardly next to each other.
I got this because the ArcTyex s240 had really tight leg loops for me, so I needed adjustable leg loops. This harness other then the sizing is going to fit the bill just fine. Probably better then the s240. This has 4 gear loops and a tab for the chalk bag. S240 is bare, bare, bare. Doesn't pack as small as the S240, but the Air CR is still gets pretty small and is almost the same weight.
With climbing pants on, my waist measures about 35 inches and I have unusually large thighs. Nevertheless, the small size fit me just fine. The leg loops could be loosened enough to don and doff the harness even wearing crampons and cargo pockets stuffed fuller than a chipmunk's cheeks. Over three days of glacier travel with a few pitches of technical rock mixed in, I noticed little or no difference in comfort between this harness and my Singing Rock harness weighing 6.75 ounces more. The gear loops are conveniently located. The buckles don't need to be re-threaded. That speeds up putting on the harness. On my Salter 3001 electronic kitchen scale, this harness (size Small) weighs 281 grams (9-7/8 ounces). My other harness weighs 473 grams (16-5/8 ounces). Adopting this harness shaved 6-3/4 ounces from my pack with little difference in wearing comfort. The weight reduction made a significant difference in hauling a four-day pack up a 5,400-vertical-foot approach.
I've had this harness for a couple months now and I like it a lot. I am by no means an expert rock climber, but I've logged enough hours in this harness and a few others to draw some conclusions. The fit of the harness is solid. There is enough padding on the legs and waist for the harness to be comfortable. Sometimes it can dig into my legs a bit when I am being lowered/rappelling or if I'm belaying someone and they fall/take a break. The speed adjust buckles are nice and easy to adjust on the waist and legs. I like the gear loops, it's worked great for sport climbing. The harness itself is very lightweight and packs up small. I'm about 5'6", 135lbs with a 30" waist and a small fits great.Overall, it's a solid lightweight harness. It sacrifices some comfort to become lighter and more packable - but it's a worthy trade off.
