The complete Aero Hunter system includes the Evolution saddle, a Lineman's Belt, Tree Strap, and two carabiners. And, for safe and adjustable attachment to the ropes, there are three climbing hitches tied in 9mm accessory cord. The whole rig packs into its own Gear Bag that doubles as a utility bag in the tree.
The saddle design is light, strong and comfortable. It is lightly equipped with gear loops and tool slots on the belt for handy access to your gear. There are small snap hooks and D rings for attaching accessory bags within easy reach. It is all low key and quiet.
Aero is surprisingly lightweight and compressible. The sling seat is contoured to the shape of your backside, so you can sit in it for hours in comfort. The leg straps are improved with foam padding for your thighs. The whole saddle is adjustable the belt, sling and leg straps are independently adjustable so you can customize the settings to balance your weight for a great fit.
The bridge on the Aero saddle is a 7 ft length of Samson Predator 7/16 diameter double braid climbing line, attached to the saddle with Rock Exotica aluminum rigging plates. On the right side, a Blake's Hitch friction knot allows you to adjust the length of the bridge on the fly, with one hand.
IMPORTANT: YOU WILL NEED a method or device that gives you a foothold on the trunk for ascending the tree. You may also want a base or foot rest for your feet once you reach hunting height. These are NOT included in the Aero system. There are many types available, such as climbing sticks or screw-in/strap-on tree steps. Learn more about these and what experienced tree hunters are using, by visiting the hunting forums online. You can also check with your favorite hunting supplier for more information.
