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.

Buckingham Deluxe Series Saddles

The Buckingham Deluxe Series is the next evolution in tree climbing harnesses. The saddles are rugged and built for durability like all Buckingham products, but have been made lighter and easier to use. Old-style buckles on the leg straps have been replaced with new quick-connect buckles that make getting in and out of the saddle a breeze. The number of attachment points on the saddles has been increased to include two upper and five lower accessory rings for storage and three accessory loops. The back support is Drilex-lined with two layers: one for rigidity and one for comfort.

The increased padding, improved connectors, and extra attachment points make these saddles a step above the already-excellent Classic Series. All Deluxe Series saddles feature replaceable lower sections.

Please note: all Deluxe series saddles are Special Order items and are ordered from the manufacturer after your order is placed. We are currently experiencing long lead times.
