RodeoH Harness History
RodeoH Harness Update
I'm happy to say that these issues have been rectified by RodeoH. Plus I'm happy any time I get to use the word rectified, no matter how adolescent that may seem. (There is most definitely a part me that I love to keep amused with that kind of adolescent humor.)
The folx over at RodeoH have absolutely stepped up their game and improved their product. In fact I have been recommending their harnesses in my Equipment Webinars for about 3 years now.
Back when they first came out, I really wanted RodeoH harnesses to work! They are designed well, comfortable to wear, and reasonably priced; that's a valuable niche for fabric strap-on harnesses. My only complaint was regarding the quality of the materials and construction.
So RodeoH - I have no more complaints!
I figured it was time to give RodeoH a shout out, recognizing the dramatic improvements they have made. Here's a side by side comparison:
Please take into consideration that both of these harnesses have been through machine washings in a garment bag. The one on the right has seen about 25 - 30 washings. The one on the left has seen maybe only 10. It's clear that the construction and materials have been changed - much improved.
The tags have been corrected - I'm sure that was done long ago.
Machine Washing Abuse!
Again - take into consideration that I have never hand washed either of these harnesses, so I suppose that my review is one about what happens if you abuse these harnesses by machine washing then in a garment bag in cold water and ignore the handwashing rule. (I just don't have time!)
And I am thrilled to say that the newer harness has had absolutely no problems whatsoever, despite the machine washing abuse!
When I compare the materials, the waistband is a different and stronger elastic, and the fabric used to make the harness is now thicker. Plus, they are obviously using a better and different lace - yay!
RodeoH Harness Ruby Ryder Recommendation!
All to say - I now recommend RodeoH harnesses without reservation. They occupy a position of high medium quality, and are the perfect choice for people who don't want to drop the money for a top of the line SpareParts harness.
