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 current events, the Aero Hunter production staff is working from home. We're happy to be producing saddles for you, but it's taking longer than usual to get them out the door. If you order today, please be prepared to wait 4-5 weeks for shipment of your order. 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.

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

When ordering, please choose saddle size, camo pattern and bridge style 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 an online search will bring you a range of options to choose from.
