    New Tribe Onyx

    I think the sewing that tabs the end of the webbing straps to the rigging plate would need to be un-done. The leg strap webbing would not have to be. But if you just purchased one then it will have the new plates and a forward facing connection.

    New Tribe Onyx

    If your Onyx is old enough then you might have the old rigging plates with a slot instead of the usual larger hole. We have since gone with the Rock Exotica plates which do have a fourth hole large enough to use as lower dees. We position them on the current Onyx in a forward position. If you...

    WTCW TX and woman-friendly saddle

    Hi Julie, New Tribe donated an Onyx harness to the WTCW in MA. It has some updated features which I believe make it more comfortable by keeping it lower on your waist. When the butt straps and the swing strap are adjusted right it can not ride up. In addition, we made the adjustments to those...

    Monkey Beaver harness

    I'm not sure if it is what you are referring to but when I started at New Tribe we did not carry a floating bridge harness but we did have a fixed point work harness as well as some recreational harnesses. They also had side D's. All of those harnesses had D's that could flop back and forth on...

    Bridge replacement on NT Nikosi first generation

    Yes the Onyx webbing bridge kit should work. The length is the same as the Nikosi. Do you need to replace the shackles as well as the bridge?

    Bridge replacement on NT Nikosi first generation

    Hi, I saw your post and yes $17 for shipping does not sound right. Someone is looking into it on our website. If you still need a bridge please contact New Tribe and we can go from there. If your bridge is worn we want you to have a replacement. Sorry about the last response. I didn't do...

    Back problems in tree care

    Thank you for that info Merle. I have chronic back issues and I know what you mean about lacing your boots. Mine can happen reaching up to shampoo my hair in the AM. Usually connected to something I did the day or 2 before. I am going to look up that book. It sounds like you really believe in...

    TreeStuff and SherrillTree Join Forces

    I do not buy much gear at all so I have only heard about the good prices, service and freebees that came from Treestuff. My concerns are how Sherrill is turning Treestuff into a corporate sloth and being treated fairly as a vendor.
