Advance EASINESS 2 (PAST MODEL)
Superseded by the Advance EASINESS 3
Very straightforward, double the comfort - and light. This EASINESS 2 light reversible harness with no seatboard literally sparkles with many new features. A range of two sizes will suit every individual, wider shoulder straps and longer legpads ensure even more comfort, and a removable airbag with built-in reserve compartment guarantee maximal safety. The rucksack mode is not just ultra-comfortable to carry, but serves as a genuine mountain backpack, fitted with removable waist strap, helmet net, pole and ice axe holders.
EASINESS 2 - Hike & Fly Fascination
- double the comfort
- multifunctional & modular
- 2 sizes
Top enjoyment: On your back and in the air
The customary ADVANCE 3-D methods now used in harness development, and longer legpads enable the no-seatboard EASINESS 2 to support the pilot’s body perfectly in flight. Pilots sit as comfortably as in a good traditional harness. The wide, padded shoulder straps provide plenty of hold and feeling of security. The light reversible harness also leaves nothing to be desired when acting as a rucksack. With its ergonomically shaped back support the rucksack blends comfortably into the back; the adjustable shoulder straps spread the load on the shoulders.
A harness for many activities
It’s not just the airbag, with its built-in reserve - the whole harness is multi-functional. This applies whether for Hike & Fly, travelling, fly-bivouac or leisure fun: a modular system invites the pilot to decide on his intended use, and therefore always the weight he wishes to carry. He can choose between an Ultralight Package, Comfort Package and Security Package - maximum flexibility.
Two sizes for a wide variety of pilots
The EASINESS 2 is available in S/M and L sizes and suits pilots from 155 to 202 cm in height. The rucksack of either 49 or 57 litres volume easily has room for a normal wing. So the EASINESS 2 is not only the perfect solution for Hike & Flyers or bivouackers, but admirably suits those leisure pilots and travellers who prefer to get around with a smaller rucksack for their paragliding equipment.
- Wider comfortable shoulder straps: The padded, wide shoulder straps provide good hold and a feeling of security.
- AustriAlpin carabiners: 63 gram lightweight AustriAlpin alu carabiners.
- An integral front pocket on the chest strap gives extra stowage in flight. It can be removed. (optional extra)
- Removable airbag with integral reserve compartment: To save more weight the airbag, including the reserve compartment, can be removed. (optional extra)
- Netting pocket on the back of the rucksack: There’s extra room for accessories, e.g. jackets etc. in a useful netting pocket on the back of the rucksack.
- Ergonomically shaped back support: An ergonomically-shaped back support faced with mesh material gives maximum carrying comfort.
- Adjustable helmet net: Large and small helmets are easily stowed under the removable helmet netting.
- Removable waist strap: To save rucksack weight, the waist strap with its small pocket can be removed if you wish. (optional extra)

Which pilots and uses is the EASINESS 2 suitable for?
The EASINESS 2 is a very light and comfortable reversible harness from 1.47 kg, that, among other things, boasts very good carrying comfort both in flight and when carried as a rucksack. Its light weight makes it exceptionally suited to Hike & Fly and Bivouac flying because the rucksack has 14% more volume than the original EASINESS.
Travellers and leisure pilots who value compact equipment and high flying comfort will find the EASINESS 2 exactly what they are looking for. 3-D development technology makes extensive thermal flying a possibility.
Can I only pack a light wing in an EASINESS 2?
No. Size M carries 49 litres and size L 57 litres in its rucksack. There’s room for a standard fabric paraglider inside, provided it’s folded carefully. More volume is available outside the rucksack with a helmet holder and various other fastening possibilities - so the rucksack has plenty of space all round.
Can I use the EASINESS 2 without a reserve, or with a front container?
Yes. The EASINESS 2 can be flown with or without its airbag, or without a reserve in the airbag/integrated reserve compartment under the seat. The reserve compartment is then closed by a couple of yellow cable blanks - supplied. The LTF-approved airbag functions normally with or without the reserve.
An EASINESS 2 front container (Frontcontainer ZIP) is available as an option. It comes with a reserve handle and reserve connection. The front reserve can be connected to the shoulder supports as well as to the light harness main carabiners. It is also possible to use a steerable (Rogallo) reserve. There’s a tidy stowage for the steerable’s brake handles in a hook and loop fastener-secured tube on top of the V-connection channel.
What is new for the EASINESS 2, compared with the EASINESS?
The EASINESS 2 comes in two sizes. S/M is for pilots between 155 and 185 cm tall, size L is for heights of 175 and 202 cm. In between, where either size might suit, pilots have the choice of lower hang points (smaller size) – for more dynamic handling, or the higher hang points of the larger size - for a more damped glider reaction.
How is the optional, LTF-certified airbag fixed? Can you take it off?
The airbag with its integrated reserve compartment fixes under the harness with one zip and six “Bullet Toggles” through loops. The end of the zip is secured with a ball and loop. The airbag is easy to remove and comes in 2 sizes, each corresponding to the EASINESS 2 harness size.
Is the EASINESS 2 suitable for tandem flying?
Yes - for the passenger: but it is not suitable for the tandem pilot.
Is the EASINESS 2 suitable for students?
The EASINESS 2 is very comfortable and easy to handle. With its integrated reserve compartment and LTF certified airbag protector it can also be used for training.
