I know you've heard this all before but I'm saying it again. I think the "big companies" make shit harnesses for the most part, specifically Arc'Bird and Brown Diamante. They're uncomfortable, their "wall models" chafe like hell at hanging belays, and in the case of Arc'Squawk, they don't last for shit, either.
I've been using Misties for years now. I've tried burly harnesses by Yates, Metolius, BD, Petzl, and a few others, and nothing on the market comes CLOSE to the Cadillac.
I really didn't think that the six loops would make a difference, but they've been a game-changer for me. The comfort of the harness is unparalleled; I'd put Misty's sport models up against any of the Big Guys' wall models for comfort alone and see them crush the competition. Bottom line is, why buy the second best? Misty Mountain Cadillacs have a deserved reputation for being the most comfortable, durable, well-built harnesses available today. They don't cost a ton, your harness is something that's with you for years and makes a big difference in how you climb when it's really, really comfortable.
Get a Misty and thank me later.
