That Magic marine harness is awful, i am guessing from the 'Lol' in one of your other posts you are fairly young?  If you have some growing to do, i would probably wait until the growing has stopped before buying a made to measure harness.

I currently use the Zhik harness, it is by far an away the best harness i have owned, its comfy and adjustable but with the velcro system there are no straps to snag.  The neoprene gusset also doesn't crush you meat and two veg.

Only downside is the cost, cheap it ain't!

Those three are pretty cheap as far as harnesses go, but personally I'd save up and get more expensive one (I've heard good things about the harnesses the Banks Sails make but they're a bit more expensive). They're all magic Marine which is okay, but you'd do better with other makes. My harness is MM and I don't really like it, there's too many straps and it's not that comfortable :/

For a growing lad I'd certainly recommend an adjustable one over the fitted nappies.
