Ryan's Top Gear Picks
"In highlining, I like a harness to be three things: lightweight, comfortable and fitting without having to adjust. The zone is all of these things. I don’t like to feel the harness at all when I’m walking a line, but if I ever whip, I want it to be comfortable as highline whips can be rowdy. This harness fits perfectly without much adjustment, is super light and comfy on the whips."
