    I like my HSS pro vest as well. I noticed they have a "hybrid" vest now that looks interesting.

    I've used my HSS Pro for the past 4 years. My next harness will probably be something lighter but I do like having pockets. My bowhanger and pull up cord are always there no matter what I wear under it.

    Same exact thing here except I got the extreme, which I think was a waste cause the binoc hooks seem clinky and I wear it under my outer jacket. It felt a touch heavier than I thought it would be, but still night and day better than my reversible hot HSS full vest...

    The best? You'd have to look at something like a sala belt and self retracting life line. If you don't have a self retracting life line to limit the amount of free fall your belt should have a shock absorber in the lanyard to limit the amount of force transferred to your body when you suddenly stop. I've never seen anything in the hunting industry that was even close to providing minimum industry regulatory requirements or a level of protection I'm willing to risk my life with. That said most people wouldn't want to pay for the good stuff.
