Cool information in this section thank you. I will try snowkiting this winter if we get enough snow. I have a seat harness and was wondering if that will work over my ski pants. I have a marmot bib that is not to bulky. Should i consider buying a waist harness and wearing that over my jacket.

I have seen lots of people wearing seat harness on top of their snow pants. If your harness is big enough that shouldn't be a problem.
Waist harness are definitly more convinient to put on and off especially in the winter thu.

Mikael,

Thank you for your reply. I will consider getting a waist. Does the seat help you stay dry when you are sitting on the snow?

In Erie most kiteskiers use chest harnesses. Especially since they use quad line foils with handles instead of a bar, it helps in that when you are really leaning back against the power of the kite, you don't have to bend yourself in half to reach the handles which are by your knees. But with an inflated kite with a chicken loop or a sheetable foil a seat or waist harness should work fine.

They like to wear the harness over their inner layers, with the outer coat over it, with the harness hook sticking out of the zipper. You can see that in http://users.adelphia.net/~muliolis/Lee5.jpg

doubt the seat harness will help keep dry that much. Snow will probably get between your harness and pants anyway. And I don't think harnesses have much insulation.

Last winter all I had to use was a Fusion seat harness. It worked fine over my ski pants, offered some limited protection from falls, and every session ended up full of snow/ice/slush between it and my pants.

I'm looking forward to trying my waist harness this winter, still concerned it will ride up a bit. But it would appear from the input I've been given by other locals, that this is not too much of an issue.

Riding up is not a problem with today's harnesses that fit better. However, the snow between the harness and the jacket might still be a problem!
