Default RE: Best Safety Harness for Climbers??

I went with the Loggy Bayou Transformer harness. It's nice and light and holds its shape so it's easy to get in and out. It also has a binocular harness built into it.

I also started using a 20 foot Fall Guy retractor safety strap. Once you get it on the tree you can hook the strap at the base of the tree so you can be hooked up the whole time you're climbing up or down the tree. It acts like a seat belt and locks when there is a sudden movement. I saw a friend fall about 8 feet off a ladder and the image of his broken wrist will always stay with me. You can buy just the retractor at Dick's Sporting Goods for around $50 or $60. I won't ever go up a tree again without it!
