Advance have updated their lightweight reversible Progress harness. The Progress 3 has an air-foam hybrid back protector, which uses foam ribs to ensure good protection even before launching.
A versatile harness, its light weight (3.5kg in M size) make it a good hike-and-fly choice, but it is designed for thermal flying, and offers good lumbar support and comfortable leg pads in place of a seat board.
The rucksack is made to be hiked with, and has an ergonomically shaped mesh back section and comfortable shoulder straps.
The Progress 3 was attracting attention at the 2017 Coupe Icare, and is expected to be on sale from December 2017 in three sizes and two colours.
