Last year we made a scene where an actor would "fly" in the scene horizontally. We used a full body construction harness for this effect. The problem was that the actor was extremely uncomfortable in this harness. We tried adding padding to the straps but still had an issue. Is there a better Harness out there sort of made for this type of effect that doesn't cost a lot?

That dosent cost alot is the qualifier that makes this difficult. A flying harness runs around $700 to $1000. Here is a decent one

I like these guy's stuff too, but they are taking some flack lately for the missuse of their stuff in the Spiderman musical.

Here is a climbing harness that is very secure at a much better price point, look for the right attachment points for your application
