Product Description

Who Is This Kit For?
This kit is designed for a climber with experience that wants a full, nice set of gear that doesn't break the bank--and it's our most popular kit by far. Whether it's to upgrade, or to finally have a climbing set that is all yours, this kit fits the bill.

What's In This Kit?
This kit gives you everything the Basic Spur Kit has with a couple of key upgrades. You get Weaver's WLC-330 saddle which has a nice, wide backstrap for support. It also has a front floating D-Ring and great long term durability. Climbing pads are upgraded to Super pads, which really help to distribute the weight better than regular L-pads or T-pads. This kit is really everything you need, and practically everything you want, all for one great price with FREE SHIPPING!

Customize Your Kit
Something our customers often ask for is this kit, but with better spur pads, a more advanced saddle or a longer flipline. Well, now you can upgrade this kit just the way you like. Simply make your selection using the drop down menus when adding to cart. Easy!

from Pulaski, TN asked:
December 27, 2021
Is this the most affordable but good brand and kit to buy?  Does it include everything you would need to get going right away other than tools?
1 Answer
This is the most popular climbing kit we offer, and the next closest would be the Supreme Kit.  Both are a good value and offer high-quality gear.  The Supreme Kit just gives you better, more comfortable gear, plus climbing rope, etc.  If you don't need or want a climbing rope then the Advanced Kit is a great option.

Joe
from Salem, OR asked:
May 22, 2021
How long are the gaffs on the climbing spurs?  Are they long enough to climb conifer species like fire hemlock and cedar trees?
1 Answer
It depends on what brand of spurs you choose in the kit.  They're all very close, and "practically" the same but they're not identical.  All should be sufficient for conifer trees, including Douglas fir trees.


Climb Right @ 2-5/8"

Buckingham @ 2-13/16"

Klein @ 2-3/4"

Matt
from Preston, MS asked:
April 7, 2021
Is this item on backorder or just built to order?
1 Answer
The answer is a little bit of both.  It largely depends on what kit components you order.  If you have a little flexibility, just give us a call, and we usually have enough components in stock to get a kit out the door right away.  Once the manufacturers we depend on start cranking out a higher volume of product, we should be able to get back to fully-stocked shelves.  But from what we're hearing, that could be 1-2 months yet.

Feral Crafter
from Earth asked:
April 3, 2021
I'm 300 pounds at 48 waist line, therefore:

 - What's the max load?

 - Will it fit my child birthing hips?


Or should I just throw monkeys with chainsaws into the trees and hope for the best?

1 Answer
The max load for the saddle is 300 lbs, and a size XL should accommodate your 48" waist.  You'll be right at the limits of the saddle though.  On the other hand, if you have a crew of highly trained monkeys with chainsaws at your disposal, we'd be all for that, and we kindly request pictures and/or video!

November 26, 2020
I put together a kit but did not see the option as to the spurs.  I need the tree spurs.  Can you advise?
2 Answers
When adding this item to your cart, simply make your spur selection using the drop down menus.  The "normal" brand of spur for this kit is Climb Right, but they are still on backorder.  We have Klein and Buckingham available now, and you can choose from a few different climber pads as well.

The options available for this kit will change from time-to-time, based on popularity and availability of different products.

How do you size this saddle?
1 Answer
The Advanced Spur Kit comes with the Weaver 1040 Saddle. To view sizing instructions, please view Weaver's sizing PDF by clicking here. The best way to measure is "D to D" but many customers go by common waist sizes, as shown in the options drop down.

Used this to safely climb and remove a 60' maple that was 10' from my home.
November 10, 2020
The Weaver harness is very comfortable and allowed for adequate mobility to safely operate my saw while in the tree. The Climb Right spurs and Weaver pads fit very well secure and were extremely comfortable. The included Tree Climber's Companion was a very valuable resource that greatly helped me plan my removal adding additional techniques and safety to this job. Thank you!
