Hi all - it's my Neo harness, and yeah am pretty shattered about the gear loops. What I'm most annoyed about is that all the product information states suitability for sport, alpine, mountaineering, etc as a very high quality and suitable harness. I knew the gear loop design was rather new but I never in a million years would have guessed they'd pop off under a small amount of leverage.

Even if you claim that it's a purely sport harness (which the ratings don't), we discovered that a single quickdraw caught was enough to rip off the whole loop of quickdraws. The only thing I'd rate it for is top-roping and basic mountaineering.

If worst comes to worst here, I will have just bought quite an expensive indoor & mountaineering harness and will need a new trad/sport one. Am happy to live with that and hopefully this info is useful to others in the market!

(Re Routesetting: FYI, the bucket was almost empty as most of the setting had been done on the scaffold - not that heavy at all at the time.)
