SOME OF THE BEST TREE SADDLES ON THE MARKET FROM WEAVER AND PETZL!
Perhaps there's no more central piece of a climber's equipment than the saddle / harness. If you are looking for a new one, then you've come to the right place! We feature top brands like Weaver, Petzl, Buckingham and Singing Rock. Weaver offers nice, durable harnesses that are mostly made of leather, although in recent years they have rolled out new synthetic options like the Cougar saddle, available with our without a rigid seat. Petzl saddles follow a similar form, being made from synthetic materials that make them very lightweight. Only quality materials, comfort-minded and highly-efficient saddles bare the Petzl name. Keep in mind that Petzl saddles and harnesses are sized with numbers. For example, Size 1 will fit "average" body frames, while Size 2 is for bigger bodies. You might think of Size 1 and M/L and Size 2 as L/XL.

In addition to climbing saddles, we offer Full Body Harnesses
in our Fall Protection
section. While many full body harnesses aren't appropriate for tree climbing, we have seen a growing number of climbers using tower climbing harnesses that offer hip d-rings, seat saddles and even chest and back d-rings. The new Rope & Rescue Harness
from Capital Safety is a great example of this trend. It offers all of the features needed for general climbing, works well in rescue scenarios and offers better protection in headlong falls.
