Rated 5 out of 5 by Dotchess Best of the Best!
The quality of this product is second to none! I own 2 of these. It amazes me that a hunter will spend so much on equipment like stands and guns then go cheap on the most important piece of gear.
I would never not own the best harness out there if it is available. I owe it to my family that depends on my income!
The rescue one is the best safety system for hunters. It is the best of the best and the thought and development that went into this piece of equipment is fantastic!
This is the best harness system available to hunters and i would recommend this to anyone that is looking to be safe in the trees.
Don't even second guess this one boys! It is the real deal!! Spend the little extra and get the best of the best!

This is one of the cleverist and easy to use products out there to assure safety while in your tree stand. It provides a great sense of security that if you should fall from your stand, you will not be left hanging and potentially dying a slow death. This product lets you down easily with just a pull of the release strap. I highly recommend it's use by anyone who spends time in a tree stand.

This system has been excellent. My father fell 16' from his treestand a decade ago. He broke nine bones, punctured his lung and spleen. As you could guess, he had no safety belt. Lucky for him that he was not hunting alone that day! He has since made a full recovery.
I often go hunting myself in archery season & I let people know where I am going, but I have two problems with this. First, what if my phone is out of reach & would I be conscious when help arrives? With this system, I can lower myself to the ground safely if I have an accident.
This product was the only system that I could find that you can test, repack, and use it again. I have tried it several times and will say that it works perfectly. With this product, I know that I will have a way out of the woods even when hunting by myself. It isn't the lightest harness system, but it is worth its weight in gold!

Also, will the back part be any bigger/heavier? I know, seems nitpicky but for ten bucks more I will take a 100 lb increase in weight limit I just don't want to buy something that will be overly large. Thanks
I would not recommend going to the bigger size if you do not need to. It may be difficult to tighten the straps enough around you chest if the unit is too large. I would not worry about the weight limit, this thing is under rated for the amount of weight it will hold.
The best thing about this harness is that it is not bulky and is easily adjusted. I did not have to take up too much when adjusting mine but I would assume that the excess nylon straps for the adjustments could be trimmed and the nylon scorched to prevent fraying. I wear mine when practicing archery from an elevated stand and nothing gets in the way.
When using a climber, I want something that will let me safely ascend and decsend in case of a issue. I have had my bottom climber fall out and the pin come out of the chain so that I could not reconnect and left hanging in the tree perched on my top climber until help arrives. I would like to use this not only in a stationary situation but as I ascend and decsend fromt he tree. Please let m know what is the best options. I have not used a linemans belt and not sure that is my answer since I would like something to help me get to the ground safely in case I fall during the climb. Any help is greatly appreciated
If I were to fall out of the stand and it lowered me to the ground, would I be able to use the descent system again or would I have to buy a new descent system or a new harness? I have looked at other slowed descent products and they are only for a one time use and I was wondering if this product is the same. I don't want to be out $170 if I were to fall. Any help is appreciated.
You can use it multiple times. I found it very easy to set up for a second use. The video that comes with it recommends that you try it multiple times from a standing position on the ground before using at tree stand height. I am very satisfied with mine.
Yes, you can use this system as many times as you need too without having to repurchase the system. I have tested my system 4 times already, just to make sure I know how to use and repack it. It comes with a DVD to explaing how to use and reuse the system.
The smaller model should fit although he will notice the rescue rope when he leans back. However,almost best of all is that your son may never grow out of the CDS system you get for him. It is easily repacked. I bet he will jump from his stand a few ties just for fun. The CDS is easily repacked.
I'm a bigger hunter, and most of them that I've seen say 300 lb. limit. Well, I wouldn't weigh 300 if I stripped down to my birthday suit...usually tip the scales at 315, except for after thanksgivng or christmas. Friends have told me that there is an additional "safety factor" built in to these figures, but I wouldn't wanna test that theory from 25 feet up a tree, ya know? Looking to purchase one real soon, along with a climbing tree stand, so any feed back would be greatly appreciated.
I must be about your size. I use the Big Boy model. Weight capacity 400#. It is well made,strong very easy to use. It's comfortable although the packed rope is noticeable when you lean back. Padding helps.
