Hi all, first post here, hope is the right section..
Due to back problems i decided ti switch to a seat harness. I m beetween ion b2 and np tracker.
I red dakine has lower quality, ion b2 has very good reviews by users, but np tracker bar seems awesome!!

I have used both because I've got a bad back too , its more about fit. the B2 is a bigger fit .My advice try a pair on
Hope this helps George

Exactly, from youtube reviews, no no tracker It seems more rigid

I tried a Dakine Vega 2018 seat today with jay dynabar slider...... was super comfy over 2 sessions.
Same as dakine nitrous but without the board shorts.

Less restrictive around the hips and the leg straps are more comfy than nitrous.

To be honest i was 25mins into my session before i realised i had it on.... instead of the shorts.

Ill be surprised if i get more than 12 months of boosting out of it though as its build is identical to nitrous.

I've had the nitrous shorts for a number of years and have been very happy with them. A couple of weeks ago I bought an Ion Radar seat harness. They are built more substantially than the nitrous shorts and should last longer than the nitrous shorts, but I was still getting more than a couple of seasons from the nitrous shorts.
The down side of the Radar is being built more substantially makes them a bit heavier and a little less comfortable, but I still rate them high for comfort and would recommend them.

Another vote for the Nitrous shorts! Add a Dynabar and it's a great combo. Very comfortable and good on the back.

I am using the ION Radar seat for foil racing. It's super comfortable and build quality is spot on. It's the first seat harness I've really liked. Run it with a rope slider if you want freedom of hip rotation for surfing. Winning!

Owned 2 vegas from dakine
ultralight in weight but very supportive, a 3 season harness I've found without care, but it gets a flogging,
I've done the rounds with plenty and for me it's great,
limits movement so I rarely ride toe side now but a slider would change that,
great for powered riding and jumping on though
