    What about the type (I don't recall the brand name) that allows you to lower yourself down to the ground after a fall? I have seen the commercial on TV and it looks easy and safe enough. Has anyone tried this type of harness?

    Hss

    I have the HSS reversible blaze orange/camo. It is easy to put on easy to adjust and easy to reverse. It can be a little warm while wearing it but I'd rather be warm than hurt or worse.

    The muddy and loggy bayou harnesses are far superior in every way to the HSS or SOP and I have used all of them

    Can you tell us how these others are superior?

    HSS seems to have a much stronger following. I like them because they are easy to put on and take off plus they are very comfortable (not too hot because of the mesh, and I barely notice it on me).

    Ultimately, that makes the difference between wearing it every time and leaving it at home.

    Static line and Prussig Knot

    My safety system involves running a line from above my stands to the ground. I then hook onto the line with a prussig knot and slide my way up. My current harness is a thin rock climbing harness that has 2 front chest loops that I hook onto a carbiner that attaches to the prussig knots. That keeps the lead short and in front of me as I ascend. I can slide the knot up without having to reach way above my head.I am looking for a hunting harness that has front chest loops. Anyone know of one? I ordered a Muddy last year and they looked very nice but if I used the back line to hook onto my prussig, I would have to reach up pretty high to move the knots up. That is the problem with just about any of the hunting systems. They only have lineman loops and a back strap. There is no good place to tie in for the ascents. Once I am up, I tie myself in from a back line similar to what is available on most vests. I then release from the prussig until I go down. By the way, I went to a climbing place for advice on how to stay safe. They taught tree dudes how to tie in. They have since gone out of business so I can't go back there. It is a slick way to keep yourself safe from ground to ground. Mrt.

    The muddy is so light and made with minimal fabric. You almost cant tell you are wearing it...i would never wear a harness before cuz they are uncomfortable and bulky. Not the muddy. I love it.

    I am not affiliated or sell muddy...i just really like the harness.

    i personally use a gorilla vest a really like it. i also got the HSS rope tree strap with the prusik, which i love. if i didnt have this i'd look into an HSS vest or a go-muddy which is identical to the loggy transformer. i havent used these 2 but they'd be my second choice

    You should sell it. They will sell almost instantly if you put it up on AT classified.

    Comfort is very important in a safety vest, but so is ease of putting on and off.
    Any vest you don't like putting on will not get used.
