Big Game Platinum Collection Diamondback Harness
I loved the price on this extremely sturdy and feature-packed safety harness. And, I really liked the high level of adjustability on all of the straps affecting proper fit. BUT -- and this is a big ol' BUT -- if you attempt to go from a sitting position to a standing position while wearing this harness, it will "hunchback" you so badly that you have to reposition the leg straps in order to attain the slack necessary to actually stand completely upright. No matter how tight or loose I set the leg straps, this problem persists. Extremely aggravating.

This is an easy product to use and I love the bungee type strap. I bought to replace my Hunters Safety system original vest that has limited length in the tree strap (hook). The HSS vest is more comfortable to wear, but the functionality and the added lineman's belt to aid in hanging stands make this a good one. Compare to others like it and it is a great value too!

Solid buy for the money
I've had this harness for a few weeks now. Its been on about 6 hunts so far. It seems to be well made with no loose threads or stitches noted. The belts appear to be of quality fabric with quite buckles. It feels solid when you put it on. It is quiet with movement. I like the minimal design as we have had some warm hunts here in the deep South so far. It is also easy to layer heavier layers over as well. There are some elastic loops on the front that are handy for attaching things to. I have compared it to another full vest model that had a waist strap. I can't say which is better. Overall, I would recommend this to a friend. I will say that I have not put it to a fall test and I hope not to but I feel secure wearing it. I have not compared it to its other name brand competitor but I must say the similarities from photos are significant. I will update the review should things change.
