Default Safety Harness

I've been thinking about buying one of the vest type safety harnesses because they look like they are less of a hassle, and quicker to use. Just wondered what your thoughts are. They look like they may be alot heavier than the standard ones, and i'm determined to keep things as light as I can this year. Plus there is the cost of them. Just wondered what your thoughts were. Thanks

I bought a HSS Pro Mesh. It's not heavy.....and it IS convenient.

ONLY thing that concerns me is the heat. We'll see. OH.....and I got this on sale, after the season, for $90.00 (normally $139.00, I think).

Hunter Safety System (not cheap) is probably the best as I think others will agree with.

I plan on getting one for this season myself. Presently using the one that came with my Summit stand but it's a real PITA getting it on!!

I have to agree with the HSS. I also love the way it fits under my other clothing!

Hunter saftey system is the way i went and love it. For the buckles(i got the cheapest one) put camo duck tape and it will help for reducing the clinging

another vote for the HSS, But if I remember correctly Seat of the Pants now makes a Vest type also that is much better getting on and off. And there are some other vest types out there too. I think Loggy Buyou makes one too. But i've had the reversible HSS for 3 years now and love mine. Yes it is a bit on the heavy side but not enough to bother me.
