the Banks Radial is comfortable and adjusts with string. To my mind this is way safer than all those damn catch on everything buckles...

i have a banks harness, but it has been choped and changed to suit me, i have also added big wear batches on the backside, as it wore through,
i also have an old crewsaver spreader bar harness which is very comfortable,
and an even older bright pink harness which is amazing,
one thing i would reccomend tho, is to treat a made to measure or nappy harness badly, screw it up and generally make it as soft as possiable

Crewsaver have a test rig, try on on, test it, then they direct you to a sales store to buy it. Easy!

If cheap is a priority, and you are likely to grow out of it and the very best isn't essential (ie. a good second hand one will do), then maybe someone on here has got one kicking around?
 
I did have one but it got donated to a good cause last year.

Adjustable to infinity and back (so wanted to say beyond there LOL)
 
I have had a few harnesses over the years and would say that anything adjustable is comfortable - once, then you get out of it and have to find the comfortable position again.
 
I would second the Banks option (I have a Nappy http://www.banks.co.uk/harn.html) and have to say it is the most comfortable I have ever had - I have seen the same harness worn by a 6', 16 stone guy (me) and  a 6', 11 stone kid with the adjustment of the string
 
Try them all and see what you like - As with all good bits of kit if you can forget you are wearing it.......
When you find a big kettle of crazy it's probably best not to stir it - Pointy Haired Boss

I've still got some Dakine Trap Harnesses kicking around the warehouse going cheap, PM if interested.

also Contender 541 ive been looking at the banks skiff pro harness but the main thing im going to be adjusting will be waist and legs but i might go for it because im not quiet a small (im just in to the size band) so at least a year in it and it isnt too expensive as they go :)
