The Kestrel tree saddle is sleek and simple, yet provides all the comfort and safety a tree hunter needs for success in the field.

Our goal in creating the Kestrel was to keep all the best benefits of the popular Aero Hunter Evolution saddle, with important new features:
--streamlined sling shape
--just one simple adjustment for a great fit
--Secure and easy to operate ADF Raptor buckles on waist belt and leg straps
--waist belt, leg straps and rope bridge all open up for ease putting it on over any kind of clothing
--16 slots (two rows of 8) of molle webbing for attaching any tools/bags you want to carry on the saddle
--a variety of optional hooks and rings you can attach to the molle webbing wherever you want them
--weighs only 2 lbs 14 oz.
The Kestrel saddle works with all the Aero Hunter accessories. These can be purchased separately, or together with the saddle at a discount in the Kestrel Kit:
--Tree strap (either 6 ft or 12 ft length)
--Back band for adjustable, positionable back support
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 companion to Aero Hunter saddles.
