    After many dives on my orange webbing I've found that the color faded to white in many places, likely it streched too. It was a bit too loose and the bungees would force it to fold in on itself. My backup light was difficult to find on this harness, and the d rings were also not very friendly to use.

    I've switched as well to the halcyon hand of webbing (minus the halcyon H) right away i've noticed a change. I'll be test diving it tomorrow. Also I've added a second belt buckel to hold my canister light in place as opposed to the slide I had in a previous photo.

    The biggest advantage to the new and softer hand of webbing I figure will be the ablility to change size on the fly. I find with the stock webbing it is a bit too tough to change easily on the back of the truck in full drysuit when you realize you don't fit lol.
