Default Need a nice safety harness!!

Guys I got a pro series hunter safety system harness vest, but I'm not jazzed about it really and will probably take it back.

After I tried it on the buckles in the front are loud and huge, the seat belt leg clips sit on the tops of your legs...just seems like a like of noise could be made just by having your bow sit on your legs or simply moving around in a tight climber.

Any ideas would be much appreicated. I just looked a the loggy bayou...seems a little better. Maybe I'll just keep using my modified factory api systems.

I've tried several, and really I'm not in Love with any of them. The Hunter Safety vest is one of the Best options I've tried. Once cool weather hits I wear it under my jacket.

I bet if you put a little moleskin on the buckles it wont make any noise, just a suggestion

I've used a one strap belt for the last 14 years and am going try





Treehopper Climbing Belt #164 out this upcomming season. Looks to be very strong and also to me, it looks to be wayless bulky and there's nothing to make noise. I just need to wait till Jeff gets them back in stock. Go to his site and check it [email protected] www.graywolfwoolens.com. Best of luck.
Rocky













The Treehopper was also designed to be used as a safety belt that allows quick and easy adjustability along with high strength. And, the Treehopper can also be used as a deer drag. Anchored at your hips through the "D" rings the weight of the animal is where your strength is, not over your shoulders which can cause lower back strain.

Lightweight yet incredibly strong, the Treehopper is manufactured to exacting standards by craftsmen in the good ol' U.S.A. Here is what makes the Treehopper the strongest and most practical belt you can find:
Belt: The belt material is two-ply O.D. green nylon, military style webbing that is rated over 4,500 lbs. It is double reinforced at the "D"rings. The belt is machine sewn with heavy duty nylon thread.
Cord: The cord is manufactured with 1/2" hollow-braid polyproplylene, rated at 3,250 lbs.
Safety latch/hook: The hook is high quality steel, drop forged and rated at 5,000 lbs. It is equipped with a spring-loaded safety latch that insure the hook will not accidentally detach from the "D" ring.
"D" rings: The "D" rings are welded high quality stainless steel to maximize safety.

I don't see any "under the leg" straps nor do I see a back tether. Son, I've used those "safety" straps before and they are not safet straps at all but death belts. Why do you think that the treestand industry mandates Full Body Harnesses with every treestand sold today---and since 2004?

Well thank you for the complement? Actually I'm not your son and I'm no kid ,LMAO I'm 53 and have been bow huntig for a long time. Safety is my utmost repect I give to the sportseeing I have 2 freinds whom have been hurt in falls and one's a quad so I dotake my safety toa T. I've tried the safety harness you explained and I too felt to much restraint in them and very uncomfortable. In a similar type too the one I mentioned in the above saftey strap, I have fallen1 1/2feet twice and have had no problems with it. Just a rude awakening ,in turn I was wide awake for the rest of the day,I'm 5' 11'' and 190lbs and had no instances where I was totally imobilized and hadthe belt cinche up so that I wasn't able to breath. Bye the way I was able to reach over and grab my tree and right my self up and able to climb back into my stand. I even stood on a stand and had the bottombreak off and fell 3 feet that time,againI was able to get back on track and get down safely. I'm comfortable wearing the single strap and this design looks to be an improvement to what I did use. Just mythoughts on this design.Best of luck on finding the right one for you.

Loggy Bayou Transformer harness is by far the best I have ever used I used the HSS for years and tried the Transformer this year nd love it. I added a couple of Buddy Lok attachment points to the Waist belt for a drink holder and accessories. They are kinda hard to come by, here's a link to some: http://www.google.com/products?sourceid=navclient&ie=UTF-8&rlz=1T4ADBF_enUS265US265&q=loggy+bayou+h arness&um=1&sa=X&oi=product_result_gro up&resnum=1&ct=title

yeah I think I'm leaning toward loggy bayou too, b/c it's also $50 cheaper and I just don't like the buckles...even it I mole skin'em up just not sold it's $50 better than a transformer harness
