With this band you can add extra back support to your Aero Hunter saddle.
It is a 3” wide webbing strap fitted with a long cord tied on one end and with a small carabiner to connect the cord to the other end of the band.
This design allows you to set up or remove the back band without having to open your tether carabiner. Keeping the tether carabiner closed and locked is key to your safe connection to the tree.
To set up the Back Band: When you are at hunting height in your tree and attached to your tether, unclip the small back band carabiner and wrap the band around your back. Pass the small carabiner and cord through the larger carabiner on your tether, then clip it onto the other end of the back band loop and lean back.
--For a more upright support, pull the cord through the prusik loop on the right, to shorten the band.
--For a more laid-back support, push the prusik knot down the cord to lengthen the band.
The Back Band is available in two colors--Broadside Closer camo, and solid Grey. Choose yours from the menu above. If you order a Merlin Kit or New Flex Kit, we will match the Back Band to your saddle.
IMPORTANT: The Back Band is an add-on to your saddle for comfort purposes only; it is not part of the safety system of the Aero Hunter saddle and must never be used for fall protection or to support your body weight.
