This is a comfortable harness. It has a huge back support, TONS of padding, and easy adjustable straps. You can definitely ride shirtless with this harness and not worry about getting a rash. Hands down this is my number one harness that I grab out of my others. I dont even have to think about it! It's as heavy as a feather. If I had to write a complaint it would be just like any other harness it rides up to the chest. However, it seems to hold around the stomach a little longer than most.
