Sizing of equipment?

Ok, so I think I'm ready to stop throwing money away and want to buy my own gear. Obviously the shoe size is pretty self explanatory but what about harness size? I don't recall the staff at VRCC ever SAYING what size their harnesses are (of even if they are the right size or just one-size-fits-all) so any advice would be appreciated!

Also, any advice on what items to look for on a harness would also be great.

Edit - Also, I'm a member of Amazon Prime and I know Amy (and others) tout the REI membership but they only have 2 pairs of shoes in my size. The same harness I'm considering is the same price, both places. AP gets free 2 day shipping (amongst other things) and (basically) free returns so convince me to go REI... ;)

James,
I am a newbie, but I ordered my harness at www.mountaingear.com even though I am REI member, just because it was a better deal. There is a size chart that you can check for each harness (I saw those on Amazon in the descriptiong section, I shop there with Prime as well). Wonderful REI folks can help you find the right size if not sure.

Can't offer any advice on shoes, since I bought mine at REI and tried at least 6 pairs before I found the right fit...

Good luck!
Kate
