Looking for harness recommendations.. I have scrawny legs, and can never find a harness with small enough leg loops. Anyone have any suggestions?

How many inches are your thighs and waist?

Most comfortable for me so far has been an adjustable leg looped small wild country vision.

Currently making do with a metolious small, nice harnness but my waist  / height is more in line with a medium.

Have been sorta contemplating asking Misty mountain how they feel about a custom size job. Small leg loops on a medium harness.

I just bought  a BD Chaos and it fits my scrawny legs/middle age gut physique pretty well. And the gear loops are perfectly located.

If you call Misty Mountain they will configure a harness any way you want it.

Do some squats.  Ladies love nice quads when you are rocking your chubies at the beach

Try a womens harness, they have a smaller waist size relative to the leg loops.

That's how I went, and they were great about it. Small sized leg loops, medium sized belt, no upcharge.

Took 3-4 weeks, I think, and they'll warn you that you can't return custom stuff.
