I've had the Focus for little over a year and half…

Rating: rated 3 of 5 stars

I've had the Focus for little over a year and half now and I'm kinda disappointed. The Focus isn't bad if you're at the crag doing sport routes or top roping, but if you plan to use it for multi-pitch or trad I'd definitely recommend you look at a different harness.

-Fixed leg loops were convenient
-Other than that's only two things I liked about it

-Very uncomfortable at hanging belays and when fully racked.
-The way you tighten it is a pain. It's really hard to fully tighten and the buckle is nearly impossible to doubleback through.
-Not much padding

So pretty much I wouldn't recommend this harness if you like to do multi-pitch routes or trad. It's an alright sport harness if you're worried about weight.
