The Buckingham Viking tree climber's harness is a tree saddle WesSpur worked with Buckingham to develop. The Viking is an affordable and dependable rope-bridge harness from the people you trust the most to build rock-solid tree gear. The Viking has a simple, uncluttered design with good geometry that transfer weight to the legs instead of the hips and lower back, and excellent padding on the leg loops. Well-padded with Drilex lining to dry faster wick moisture away, this saddle packs a lot of comfort and features at an excellent value. The saddle has snaps in all the right places for your saws, gear, and a carabiner loop on either side for a large carabiner to hold your saw.
We recommend the Viking to those who want a full-featured, reliable work saddle at a great price. This is an excellent saddle for Tree Care Company employees, who are at their most efficient and safest when working comfortably so that their full attention is on the job.
Rated: Excellent Review by: Tom - Pensacola, FL
“I bought this harness as a back-up to a much more expensive one, especially when the southern pines get virtually coated in sap near the tops and it gets all over equipment. After a month of using it, it's now my everyday saddle. It's VERY comfortable and every adjustment on it is easy with no fighting straps or tight buckles. Amazing the amount of gear that can be attached to this harness and it's obvious the placement was well thought out. I prefer a low bridge and this one is exactly where I like them. Excellent job on this one WesSpur and Buckingham! I'd recommend it in a heartbeat to anyone looking for a harness fully capable of the demands of work or rec climbing. It's not a top line rig, but it does everything you need it to and at a really terriffic price point. ”
