Traditional Tree Climbing Harnesses

Many tree climbers have made their careers in traditional saddles like these. They may not have the features of a modern climbing harness, but they are tough, affordable, and can get you to work in the trees. We recommend climbing in a modern tree harness, but if you don't mind a heavier, bulkier saddle with a more old-school approach, one of these may work for you.
