For hunters who are new to tree hunting with a saddle, here is the basic setup to get started with Aero Hunter. If you already have your own tree strap or lineman's belt, you won't need this kit. Instead, just order separately the components you want to complete your tree hunting system.
At the top of this page it says this product availability is "Pre-Order." This means Kite is in production now. By paying for your order now, you secure your place in line for first-come-first-served shipping. Read about our Pre-Order Policy here.

WHAT'S IN THE BOX?
The Kite Kit includes the Kite saddle, a Lineman's Belt for climbing the tree, a Tree Strap for safely connecting to the tree, and a Back Band to extend your comfort options.
The saddle design is light, strong and comfortable. It is lightly equipped with molle webbing on the belt for attaching your gear.
The Kite 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 saddle has an adjustment strap on each side that allows you to balance the pressure of your weight between your thighs and your backside for your best comfort on a long sit.
The bridge on the Kite saddle is an 8 ft length of Samson Predator 7/16 diameter double braid climbing line, tied to the saddle with life-safety figure 8-on-a-bight knots.
The complete kit with all its components weighs under 4 lbs.
MPORTANT: YOU WILL NEED climbing sticks, steps or ladder attached to the tree to climb on while ascending with a Lineman’s belt. You may also want a platform device to support your feet on the tree, and knee pads for resting against the trunk. We don't sell these, but an online search will bring you a range of options to choose from.
