I began to hear rumours that the Cosmic was a difficult harness shortly after I bought it! I\'m glad to report that I have had no difficulties. It is beautifully made: harness design and manufacture has come a long way since I last got a new one, an Airwave Race 2 in 1995, which was also excellent for the time.

The rucksack is well made and spacious. My glider rests on top of the bag, across my shoulders, for carry-ups.

There is a lot of storage in the Cosmic: certainly more than in my old Race 2. Ample room for all the gubbins including XC bag and glider padding, radio, camera and so on.

Takeoff is easy, although I find that the upper main zip slider tends to disappear upwards under the lower chest buckle, and can be difficult to retrieve in flight to close. Re-opening the lower zip for landing is easy.

I have not yet had any difficulties with the leg loops, as mentioned by Lee.

Adjusting the angle of dangle in flight is relatively easy, although not as simple as the Race 2. I\'ve only had four flights in it so far and I think it will get easier.

Some people (including Avian on Line) have said that it can be hard to get upright for landing in a Cosmic. I have not found this. I find a good shove downwards on the bar does the trick. I am quite thin, and perhaps people who are more heavily built in their upper body might not suit the harness so well? I dunno, but it works for me.

Overall, I am very happy, and I expect this harness to last me for some time to come.
