flight harness

I was just wondering because i ordered the aviator today for my Quaker what everyone's opinion on flight harness's are. I had asked about what size to use on yahoo answers and there was a kind of heated discussion about them between two people so i was wondering what everyone else thinks.

let me know your arguments for and against them

For a quaker I'd probably use a petite, small maybe still a little bit too big but I'm not entirely sure.

I plan on getting one for my baby grey (my baby is just an egg right now). I think they're a great idea. I'm not going to get any for my other birds though.

The aviator is the only harness my cockatoo likes.

I just found out today that my breeder will be training my baby CAG to a flight suit/birdie diaper. I may switch to a harness but it should be easy since s/he will be used to the flight suit.
