I use the HSS harness, but not always in a ladder stand...I know, I'm going to try and use it all the time.. My wife bought me the lineman's belt to go with it, this will come in handy when setting up hang on stands, Hands Free..

Default I think you new fellows have to

How else are you going to sue the manufacturer if you take a swan dive from the diving platform, known as a tree stand?

And every time you buy a new tree stand, you get one of those latest safety harnesses, included in the price, just so you don't forget.

The Hunter Safety System harness is a vest, much easier to wear than those harnesses you get free with each stand..,

I have the HSS also along with the lineman's belt and life line. Pretty easy to use.

mine was FREE and came with my summit.it is GREAT.after marking where everything goes around you it goes on easy and is very comfortable.
i have no need for vest and used the money for other things but the summit sop is comfortable ,i assume your vest is too.

Exclamation Tree stand harness.....

This is not good for kids or hunters that are new to the sport, but, no I don't use one. I do install one on each stand for any visitors, but I don't use one.

I use it tree stands, not when I use my tripods! I should, because the last time I used my tripod, I slipped and fell 10 ft. Only broke 3 ribs, could have been worse!!
