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. For full descriptions of each component of the kit, click on the links below.

At the top of this page it says this product availability is "Pre-Order." This means Kestrel Flex 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.

Please note: Due to the huge response to the new products released this season, there will be a delay of about 10 weeks before your order will ship. Thanks for your patience and understanding.


The Kestrel Flex Kit includes the Kestrel Flex 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. 

You have a choice for the bridge on your Kestrel Flex saddle--either a 6 ft length of Samson Predator 7/16 diameter double braid climbing line attached to the saddle with a spliced eye on one side and a Fusion locking carabiner on the other, OR a webbing bridge sewn in on both sides, OR a webbing bridge sewn in on one side and attached with a Fusion locking carabiner on the other. 

You have a choice of camo patterns for your saddle and back band--ASAT, Predator Fall Grey, or the new Broadside Closer.

You  have a choice for the length of your Tree Strap, either 6' or 12' finished length (with all knots tied).

The complete kit with all its components weighs only 5 lbs 5 oz.

When ordering, please choose saddle size, camo pattern, bridge style, and tree strap length, from the menus above. The color of your Back Band will match the camo you choose for your saddle.

IMPORTANT: 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 we are proud to recommend the SteppLadder and Perch from Wild Edge as the perfect companions to Aero Hunter saddles.


The Aero tree strap rope comes in a standard length of 6 feet, with all knots tied. We also offer it in a 12 ft length for an upgrade charge of $5.75. To order the longer rope, please select it from the menu above.

Here's how to choose the best tree strap length for you:

  • Choose the standard 6 ft Tree Strap if you want to carry the minimum useful length, and your hunting trees are 16" diameter or less.
  • If your hunting trees have a diameter greater than 16", go for the longer strap.

It's important to set the tree strap on the trunk so that it does not slip. You can keep it from slipping by:

  • wrapping the rope twice around the trunk, or
  • passing the carabiner end of the rope twice through the loop.


  • Aero Hunter Kestrel Flex tree saddle made specifically for fall prevention while tree hunting, rated 5000 lbs
  • Saddle bridge is Samson Predator 7/16" diameter double braid climbing line, tensile strength 6,000 lbs, or 1" heavy nylon webbing rated at 6500 lbs.
