hms: Has anyone here had any embarassing experiences with climbing harnesses, like those used for rock climbing? I'm starting to get interested in climbing and recently went to REI to try on a harness. I wore the shorts I thought I'd be wearing for climbing - loose nylon with built-in briefs. I hang 7"-8" soft and the harnesses straps totally framed my package from all sides. I knew there might be some kind of bulge but this was outrageous. You should have seen the look on the face of the girl who was helping me. She had me tie in and hang from a rope to test the fit, which cinched the harness even tighter. She was trying to act normal but she was staring the entire time. I did end up buying it, though. Now I'm wondering what I'm going to do when I'm wearing this thing for real. Wear a jock underneath my shorts?
