X-1 Bowhunter Safety Harness
Let me start with giving my dimensions. I'm 5'10" 195 lbs. 34-36" waist. I first bought the L/XL figuring with all my gear on during winter the 37" minimum waist with 175-250 lbs would be fine and in warmer times wouldn't be too sloppy and loose. I was wrong. I had every adjustment as tight as it would go and it was still the sloppiest thing ever. So I exchanged it For the S/M. I stretched out all the straps, started putting it on, and realized is was too small immediately. The straps barely made it around my legs and the chest buckle only latched when I pulled my shoulders as close as I could. This was in just my casual clothes, no layers like I will likely be wearing. This is a severely disappointing product. I will now be returning my second one and the hunt will continue to find a SAFE safety harness.

I hunted in tree stands for 25 and never used a safety harness. Over the last couple of years I had a few friends fall out of their stands so I guess I just got lucky. I looked at several safety harnesses and decided to go with the X-1. The price was the deciding factor when you look at the quality of the product for the money. I had this thing adjusted in less than 2 minutes and honestly I couldn't tell that I had it on. The first time I walked to my stand I had no issues with noise. This thing is silent when you walk. I've got full range of motion with my bow and I can't even tell I'm wearing it in the stand. Get yourself one and stay safe.

I bought this harness after using the factory supplied basic harnesses that come with treestands.
I was looking for an affordable, easy to put on quality harness. This one definitely fits the bill. I can have it on and adjusted within 60 seconds and be up in the stand in no time. I felt safe and secure and it gave me more room to position for an archery shot. No lineman's belt is included, but the attachment points are there.
I highly recommend this harness, especially at this price point. Good luck, stay safe.
