The Oxygen1 harness was designed with comfort in mind. Comfort while flying, and also while hiking. At just 1.3kg (size M), it is light for a harness and bag combination, but features generously padded leg and back support, full adjustments, and a comfortably sized storage compartment*.
Instead of having all of the leg straps permanently sewn to save a few grams, which can result in a nightmare on launch if you are trying to get into it with crampons or boots on, we have chosen light weight aluminium plate buckles with colour coordinated leg straps for easy and safe identification. The padding on the back and inside the legs makes the Oxygen1 the lightweight harness that you can fly comfortably for hours. After all, if the wing is soarable, the harness should be as well!
The Oxygen1 is now available in size M and L. Size M was the original ‘one-size-fits-all’ size. Size L is new, with longer shoulder straps. As a rough guide for sizing: size M is for pilots under 185cm height; size L for pilots over 185cm height. Weight for size M approx. 1.3kg; size L approx. 1.7kg.

*Flybubble note: Ozone don’t quote the volume of the Oxygen1’s rucksack (which is very small, designed to fit speed wings and small compact lightweight solo wings) but we have measured this so pilots can compare this to the packed size of their wing: approx. 48 cm long x 36 cm wide x 28 cm deep, which gives an volume of approximately 48L.

Size comparison, medium v large.on 04/09/2016
A quick review for sizing of this harness. I’m 5’11” (180cm), so initially got the medium size. However, it was very snug over the shoulders. The large size fits great, so I measured my torso. I took a tape measure and went over one shoulder (across the collar bone) down my back, through my crotch and up my front. I measure 75 inches. The medium will fit but only with a t-shirt on.
The large gives me a couple of inches spare over my shoulders and is a good fit with a down jacket (or something similar).
So my advice is do a quick measure to get a better idea which size to go for.
