The new Wills Wing FlyLite 3 harness has been revamped and totally updated, and the result is a clean, contoured, form-fitting design. The perfect harness style for dune gooning and coastal soaring. The Flylite 3 harness has a tapered and form-fitting cut, comes with lots of options, like a deluxe harness bag, clip boot fastener and a clever line-attachment system.
Curt's Pro Tip:
WHEN to fly a cocoon hang gliding harness?
Cocoon hang gliding harnesses are lightweight, comfortable, and suited well for coastal flying. They are ideal for dune gooning as they are quick to get out/upright when a landing is suddenly needed. Custom made cocoon harnesses support the body well at low altitudes. Of course a pod harness does not, as it would have to be flown unzipped at the legs to allow mobility. And, a foot-stirrup (AKA trainer harness) is simply not comfortable for extended duration flights.
Cocoon harnesses are not ideal for XC flying, as they don't have a whole lot of room for gear bags, are not very aero stream, and don't keep the lower body warm at high altitudes.
If you are going to fly some XC and some coastal and want to buy just one harness, I would get the Moyes Contour harness.
If you are wish to mostly fly coastal ridges or the dunes (or want a second harness at an affordable price), then I would seriously consider a custom made Wills Wing Flylite 3 Cocoon hang gliding harness.
Check out the new line attachment system (in Spec's below) that spreads the load of the lines. -Clever.
What cocoon to buy, the High Energy or the Wills Wing Flylite3?
The Wills Wing Flylite3's are newly re-designed, so we're giving them a go. We've seen one of the 1st Flylites and it looked nice and the pilot was happy with the custom fit, and balancing for rocking up and down (slightly) during flight. With that in mind, we're pushing these at the moment (September 2013).
Finally, whatever your decision, we are happy to help you with the particularities and induction into your new harness.
