Having worked on several harness designs, Manera created the a harness with a hard shell for a better support of the back.
This is the Manera Eclipse, a balance between support and freedom. It brings support where you need it and the freedom to move the way you want.
The adaptive shell stiffness ranges from hard in the center area, to softer on the edges. The stiff center belt prevents the harness from folding and compressing your body while preserving good back support.
The padding disperses pressure evenly to provide comfort over an entire day on the water.
By stiffening the connection between the harness and the buckle, they prevent it from riding up.
