Top Positive Review


I put this system through a bit of abuse over my vacation. I’ve spent a lot of time up in the air in better and worse equipment. If you’re trying to get into saddle hunting and want safe equipment at a lower price, this is a good option.

Heck, the sketchy stuff I’ve seen people get away with (especially the old timers) make this look like silly overkill on quality and safety. There are absolutely higher quality products. However, If your a dad on a budget trying to use a sit and drag backed up with a cheap harness and some ropes you bought at lowes, this is definitely an upgrade.

Addendum, the sticks really are very good quality, the engineers just screwed up on the nesting buttons. Remember Jurassic Park and never completely trust equipment no matter who made it.

UPDATE 8-26-2021:
Keep in mind that the ascender that comes with this is only ratted for 100kg (220lbs) MAX . Be careful
This saddle completely fell apart before a years worth of use. The Hawk Store will ignore your emails and phone calls. BEWARE do not risk your life with this saddle. Spend the extra money and buy an American made saddle from a company that will back the product.

Original review:
I used this twice so far for about 4 hours each day. The tether is already wearing bad! I tried to contact the seller before I wrote this review but couldn’t find any way to do so. I thought they might want to take care of the problem before I gave this review. For the price of this saddle I could have bought a summit climbing tree stand. I will be returning this item ASAP since I’ve only had it for 5 days. Beware, the tether and linesman rope are poor quality and looks like the seller is ignoring the problems. I included photos that I have taken during the SECOND use. If the seller would contact me about this with in a couple days and remedy this problem then I will edit my review and MAYBE keep the item and continue using it. I cant risk my LIFE and take a chance of injury with this product.

Customer Questions & Answers


What size are the ropes?
Answer: I haven’t measured exactly but I would say about 1 inch diameter and about 6 feet long.

Is this the whole saddle kit, or are there other items you need? (Aside from climbing sticks/platform)
Answer: Yes this is the kit.

A saddle sling seat for a 48in. Waist and 300lbs.
Answer: Not this one. I??m 190 with 34 inch waist and mine is so uncomfortable it??s unusable.

What kind of rope is included
Answer: I would call them climbing or rappelling type ropes. One is for your lineman’s belt and the other is for your tether.

Why is the camo on the inside of the seat?
Answer: The seat fits inside the sling and it doesn’t show from the outside when in use, so I assume the camo pattern is just because it looks good with the rest of the pieces. It has proven to be a good quality product in my opinion.
