The opinion of Aventure Nordique
They are designed for hauling by either ropes or shaft, although both these features can be accommodated on the same harness if required. This is useful if the harness is being used first for training with ropes, before an expedition using shafts.
In use, you may find it is more comfortable to loosen the waist belt while hauling on the level. You can only do this with a full harness though, as a waist only harness would fall down!

In practice, sizes overlap one another to a small extent. If in doubt, go for larger size rather than smaller.Bear in mind that you may feel more comfortable wearing your harness slightly lower than the waist, possibly nearer your hips. The sizes above allow for thermal and shell layers.
