I know as a rule crossfit is against muscle specific exercises, but I am thinking about purchasing a head harness for neck conditioning. Primarily to prevent injuries in contact sports. I am interested in opinions and experiences.

Have one and love it, but I haven't used it in awhile. I only use it for neck flexion & extension, no lateral (side) movements. If you're going to get one, buy a good quality harness, usually leather. Ironmind also sells a top quality neck harness.

I made one years ago while I was in the Navy. It is better quality than any I have seen. I love it. IMO, Isolation exercise is/should be primarily for the prevention/rehabilitation of injury. Consider bridging and performing pullovers and presses while in a back bridge too (use very light weight at first).
