Default seat belts for RV-10

I am about ready to order seat belts for my rv10. Can you give me feed back on which ones you guys prefer and why. And also those who have maybe switched to different seat belts and why.
Thanks.

I have the Crow 5 point camlock set up with pads. Very easy on/off, easy to adjust and they are comfortable.

The RV-10 is the second plane that I used Hooker Harness Sport belts. They will go in the next one as well. The quality is top notch.

Is there a weight difference between hooker and crow.

I concur on the Crow harnesses. When I purchased there was also a significant price difference but quality from my opinion was nil.

My 2c worth.

I have the Crows with the rotary buckle, and generally like them, but they do seem heavy.

I've had both Hooker and Crows in the tens. Both high quality. The Crows are a tad less bulky and maybe more comfortable because of it. Rotary buckle for sure.

Default Schroth seatbelts

I chose Schroth aviation seatbelts. I like the smaller rotation buckle and the various kinds of designs for pull down handles to tighten the belts. They as well offered the right red matching the exterior paint.

I guess I'm the outlier in the bunch -- I used the ones supplied by Vans. No issues whatsoever. I have a gray Flightline's interior and the gray stock belts match perfectly.
