Kits are supplied with tree gaffs by default. Pole Gaffs (better for thin bark) may be substituted by default.
This is the best starter kit on the market! This kit is built around rugged and dependable climbing gear that can get the job done without extra bells and whistles.
The 2016 kit comes with Weaver Shin Cup pads, which have angled steel inserts that provide rigid support and superior comfort when compared to soft pads. The Buckingham spurs have a wide range of adjustment, making them a truly one-size-fits-all spur. They also feature an offset shank and interchangeable, replaceable gaffs. The split-D harness is both durable and comfortable, featuring a wide, padded back and a leather-lined sit sling. This kit includes the Tree Climbers Companion -an excellent resource for climbers at any level- and also comes with a burly, military-style duffle bag to hold all your equipment.
Featuring a great collection of no-nonsense gear, this is our recommended kit for entry-level climbers who have a limited budget but nonetheless want quality equipment.
Kit Contains: Wide-back harness, Buckingham steel spurs with Shin Cups pads, 12' x 5/8" Hi-Vis Steel-core Flipline, US Standard Adjuster, Pirate carabiner, Tree Climber's Companion, large canvas gear bag.

“Everything I needed to get into the game! Top quality gear. I'm very impressed. I could not find a better deal anywhere else and I literally took days of searching and comparing before I bought my kit. I want to thank WesSpur for providing awesome gear at very fair prices and allowing people like me (on a tight budget) to get started working safely with professional gear. Thanks,as long as WesSpur keeps the same business philosophy they have now I will be a customer for life.”

“This kit is almost everything you need to start climbing (depending on your personal preferences) I have an additional flipline that I added to make climbing past limbs safer. The comfort level of this kit is med-low if you spend more than 90 minutes in the tree at any given time, but it wasn't advertised to be comfortable. The harness is bulky and heavy, but very well built with several options for clipping in accessories. Again, If you plan on occasionally climbing, this kit works great! If you plan on spending large amounts of time in the tree, purchase the most expensive kit your budget will allow. ”
