At the New Tribe workshop, we are making Aero Hunter Kestrel saddles and accessories at top speed, working to keep up with the astonishing success of this product line. We know the hunting seasons are already upon us. We’re doing all we can to fill your orders in time for this year’s hunts.


If you order today, please be prepared to wait 1 to 6 weeks for shipment of your order. We have dozens of saddles nearly finished right now and more in the works—we can complete them as soon as we take delivery of hardware components that have been delayed from the manufacturer. Affected products are listed in the Aero Hunter store as “Pre-Order.” Read about our Pre-Order Policy here.

If you order now, it will secure your place in line for shipment, and you’ll get the Pre-Order discount –$20 off — as a thank-you for your patience. When you order we will give you our best estimate for a shipping date. If you’ve already ordered and are waiting for your Kestrel, we’ll be in touch to let you know what to expect. Of course, if you prefer not to wait, let us know and we will cancel your order and immediately refund your payment.

You could be one of the many hunters turning to a tree saddle instead of using a tree stand. Suspended in an Aero Hunter saddle, it is possible to perch more naturally in a tree, like a hawk, unnoticed by wildlife below.

You can face the tree trunk, concealing your presence, yet move about freely and quietly at hunting height. Your mobility and line of sight extend 360° around the tree, ready for game to approach from any direction.

And as you wait for your shot, you can quietly shift your position as needed for hours of sustained comfort.

No tree stand can pack down smaller than the size of a half gallon jug and weigh under 6 pounds, like the Aero Hunter setup does. And that weight includes the saddle, lineman’s belt, tree strap and back band. The Kestrel saddle alone weighs only 2 lbs 14 oz.

You don’t even have to carry it to your hunting tree, you can wear the Aero saddle and walk any distance hardly knowing you have it on.

All this, plus safety that is not possible in a tree stand: you cannot fall from a properly used Aero Hunter tree saddle.
