Best harness for tiny kids
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fits so much better than every other kids harness, especially for really little kids. Got the XXS for our two-and a half-year-old daughter two years ago. The ergonomics are excellent, and it could fit her tiny body without a lot of excess straps or loose spots (unlike the Petzl Simba!). The only issue is that the leg loops are not adjustable. Now that she is 4 and a half, the overall harness still fits her well, but her chunky legs have grown too large for the harness. We are sizing up to the next size (XS), but I think the overall geometry of it might be too large. Just two inches of leg strap adjustability would make a huge difference for both sizes.
Well, shoot. Got the XS and it is WAY too big for her. So we are going to have to switch to a different harness. It's really a bummer that the leg loops are not adjustable. By the way, her thighs are 13.25 inches around, and the XXS is too small for her now. So I would have to edit my title to "Best Harness for Tiny Kids".
