I have been doing some research on safety harnesses and wanted to get an opinion from all of you.
I am leaning towards going with the Hunter Saftey Systems harness with the Tree Stand Life Line as an accessory.
I have never hunted out of a stand before, put plan to next year with a hang-on stand and climbing sticks.
Any recommedations, personal experience with any of the products would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!RafsobbobParticipantNovember 29, 2010 at 9:52 pmPost count: 735
I wear the Hunter Safety System very comfortablr easy to put on no excuses not to wear it. Remember there is no price for safety you’ll get the nasayers well I work all day at heights and I wont wear one at work so why should I wear one while hunting. Cannt move in them there a pain ect. 1 out of 3 stand hunters will fall at sometime dont be one of them.

I have a vest this year which I like better than the harness I had before.Much easier to put on and I wear it under a jacket or over.It is definitely heavier. The life line attaches at the top and hangs down and is used as you climb.Anything that will stop a fall is a good idea.We use them on job sites all the time and it is easy to use.A good idea if you aren’t very agile.YoungeyeParticipantNovember 29, 2010 at 10:40 pmPost count: 246DGormanParticipantNovember 29, 2010 at 11:58 pmPost count: 1853
I had an HSS Pro Series vest and liked it a lot but I switched to the UltraLight this year. It is also easy to put on just not a vest style. You really can’t go wrong with HSS products but there are a lot of high quality harnesses out there. I’m glad to hear you will be wearing a harness. There is absolutely no good reason to not wear one.drifty4ParticipantNovember 30, 2010 at 12:05 amPost count: 769wolflb2ParticipantNovember 30, 2010 at 3:03 amPost count: 351PhilHParticipantNovember 30, 2010 at 3:22 amPost count: 219khughes2345ParticipantNovember 30, 2010 at 3:39 amPost count: 213
i just use the harness that comes with the treestand. really light, takes about 30 seconds to put on (if the straps are tangled). i just wear it on the outside of my camo jacket and pants. I have 3 extra in the packages still if ya need one. seem to work for me and hopefully i will never have to test it.NewToIAParticipantNovember 30, 2010 at 6:42 pmPost count: 90
