Light indeed

Compared to my Apeks harness, this is indeed very light, about 350gr. The buckle and rings are aluminium, the sliders too and are very thin, and the webbing itself is thin and flexible. I've paired it with my Mares XR aluminium plate for pool training and travelling.

My sole concern is that the webbing has no discernible tough core. So although it is strong and light, it is much more vulnerable to damage and wear. Also be careful when you burn the edges, as it melts/burns quite easily.

If you're looking for an ultralight BP setup and don't mind the over-the-top in-your-face branding all along the strap (one-sided), then the Mares light harness is worth considering.
