Contact your nearest sail maker. You will find these guys usually custom make it to your size.

There are a few off-the-shelf brands available as well. Too get something that is comfortable cost $$$$.

The only thing I can suggest is that you donít buy a 'Magic marine' harness as I have had a lot of trouble with them slipping to the point of which I hurt my back using one, not only that when I asked the company to take a look at the harness they didnít seem to want to think there was anything wrong, it took I think 6 months for them to send out a new harness which was top of their range however that also slips a bit. So I think the next time I want a harness I will look at a Neil Pryde harness
