Impressions of final version and some questions

This thread is primarily my reaction and thoughts to the final design reveal, with a couple questions.

Loving the final design, looks like a very polished product compared to the earlier versions. I must admit as a backer I have forgotten about the Omni while waiting for it for so long. Well I perhaps haven't entirely forgotten, as I have kept an empty place for it in my living room near my PC this whole time. I'm still very pleased with myself for having backed it early, especially since doing so has saved me so much money. The final price is what, $300 more expensive? Can't say I hoped the final version would even be capable of jumping and crouching, and certainly not sitting, when I first backed, so its all gravy.

1. When are we going to get the dimensions on this thing? I noticed on the preorder page, the option is given for "small, medium, or large" harness size, but how are we to know what exactly these sizes are? Not that I was trying to preorder another one, I was just looking at the options.
2. The letter mentioned a 'cable boom' which would be revealed next month. Does that come with the Omni for Kickstarter backers, or is that a separate purchasable add-on?
3. Has anyone here tried the final version? If so what are you impressions of it, and how comfortable was sitting? If I wanted to use this for Star Citizen for example, I would have to be able to sit while flying my ship. Can you imagine "sitting" for thirty minutes or more in this thing?

Only trouble in my mind is that I only have an Oculus dev kit 1.0, which isn't exactly doing it for me. I never put it to much use since it feels so strange and sickness inducing thanks to the lag. So it looks like I will get my Omni delivered before the final consumer version of the Oculus arrives.
