I had the same delima and everyone I talked to said 4 point 2 inch. I really like them.

As far as brand, I chose Cross and I am happy with them as well.

The majority of people will tell you the same thing, 4 point 2 inch. Also, make sure you get the padded ones.

I have 4 point 3 inch Crow.

I went with the three inch because I thought it would hurt less if I was to roll over. I think my theory is right. lol! However, I have never owned two inch to compare....

I like the padded three inch. They are very comfortable and look cool too Laughing

I got a set of 2 inch four points from SuperATV. They're not as fancy as crow and others but I don't plan on crashing this thing at high speed in the TN mountains. I'm more worried about staying in the cab in case of a rollover. They are 100 bucks a set and if you head over to Teryxforums they are offering free shipping on new years day on top of a 10% discount for forum members.

When we had the Rhino we had 3", padded 4 point Crow, they rubbed the neck. When we got the RZR we had 2" padded 4 point Crow. I then added the sub belt because the lap belt kept riding up, this happens whenever you pull the sholder straps tight.

We now have DragonFire 3" padded 5 point harnesses and they are the most comfortable we have had. Even the wife agrees with me on this.

I run 2 inch padded 4pt crow, main reason I got heck of a buy from guy on RZR Forum. I don't see need for 3 inch but by all means get padded. If I was ridding the doons I would have 5 pt but in the mountains no.

I had the 2" Super ATV ones for a while and then I upgraded to the DFR 3" padded ones...NIGHT and DAY difference in comfort and ease of use. The DFRs are unbelievably comfortable, but a bit of a hassle to get in and out of...the Super ATVs are not as nearly as comfortable, but it takes only seconds to get in and out of and adjust...

So, depending on how you use your bike, take that into consideration. If I was running around on the street a lot or using the bike where I needed to get in and out a lot...think twice about DFRs or Crows or any of the really nice belts that are designed to keep you put, not use like a car belt for quick ins and outs.

I have the 4pt 2" padded crow and love them very comfortable in my opinion. I would also suggest getting the clip on hardware that way you can take them out whenever you need to for other reasons. picking harness help 32749

I've got 4pt, 2" padded, crow brand. I got the 2" because I didn't want huge thick straps on me in the summer. To be honest 99% of the time I just wear the lap belt part and leave the shoulder straps off. I don't like not being able to lean when the machine is close to tipping. I also have trouble looking around me with the shoulder straps on. I have came close to turning over Because of them lol. I have went over a couple times with just the lap belt on and had no problem staying in place. My wife was even hanging from hers.. I think the shoulder straps are needed more for higher speed or large hills where you might roll several times picking up speed..
