New Tribe Climbing Saddles

New Tribe tree climbing harnesses are unique amongst tree climbing harnesses. The New Tribe basic Harness is the first Harness designed expressly for recreational tree climbing. The Tengu Harness is an expansion upon the basic meant to be a light and comfortable work Harness. Both have lightweight, comfortable design, and are designed to make tree climbing accessible to all.

New Tribe saddles are carefully built for life-safety performance. They have been tested and meet ANSI A10.14-1991 standard, Class I harness for fall arrest/restraint, and Class II work positioning.

New Tribe saddles are made in the U.S.A., and are made to last.

New Tribe Onyx Rope Bridge Harness

Size 1
SAD549‑1
Size 2
SAD549‑2

The Onyx is a compact harness that provides support by improving the construction and design of the harness so the weight is distributed more evenly, thanks to the unique webbing pattern on the leg loops. The hang point on the Onyx is fully adjustable, with adjustment on the waist to rigging plates, rigging plates to leg loops, and from the back of the harness to the leg loops. The harness provides comfort without added bulk.

WesSpur stocks the Onyx with rigging plates and rope bridge, and the harness is also available with a webbing bridge. Conversion kits are available to convert the harness between the two.

New Tribe Tengu Tree Harness

sad515xl

This “ultra-light” Harness is designed to be light and comfortable without sacrificing safety. The belt pad and leg pads on the Tengu are work-Harness shape and provide great support without restricting movement. The side D rings on the belt and the sliding D ring on the leg strap bridge are “soft” Ds that trim the weight, yet retain the strength of the Harness. Harness includes three soft gear loops, one on each side and one at the back, a carabiner loop behind each side gear loop, soft side Ds, two gaps on the belt webbing that can carry additional carabiners.

The leg straps have quick-release buckles, two accessory loops, one on each leg strap, (these little loops keep whatever you put there within easy reach.) These straps are now adjustable to accommodate a wide range of users. The soft floating D on the leg strap bridge glides smoothly when you shift from one side to the other. If you place the apex of your Delta Screw Link into the floating D it grabs the Delta tighter to prevent it from rotating as you climb.

New Tribe Kids' Twist Harness

One Size
sad542

The Twist adds adjustability to the safety and comfort features that New Tribe has built into their rec saddles for years. This Harness is one-size-fits-all for children of all ages. The old Basic Kids' Harness was great for kids starting at about age 5, but not so good for anyone younger or smaller than that. The maximum adjustment on the Kids' Twist overlaps the minimum adjustment on the Adults', so everybody is covered!

New Tribe Aero Evolution Tree Hunter's System

SAD551‑1
SAD551‑2

Today's tree stand hunting devices have a serious downside: even with the finest tree stand and the best harness, falls are still occurring. A tree stand harness can catch a fall, but does not protect against one. It was natural for New Tribe to step in with a safe alternative to tree stands.

The Aero Evolution System allows a hunter to suspend safely from a girth strap on the trunk, wearing a super lightweight and comfortable rope bridge tree saddle ideal for long hours aloft. Read more on the Aero Evolution here...
