I love my lower Ds on spars. Not sure how it works for guys, but having lower centers of gravity seems to really jive well with getting comfy, even on skinny shit!I'd like to see more harnesses with lower D's. I think that'll make me feel better on skinny ass little spars on hooks.

I did last evening. Look in the climbers forum. Maybe you can answer some of the questions. I wish I'd taken a few more pictures, but it was a busy weekend and I was easily distracted.Ok ladies. I am looking for some feedback on the two harnesses that we donated to the WTCW event. We sent a size 1 Onyx in a leaf pattern and a brand new model called the Monkey Beaver in a size medium. If you were at this event and tried either or both of them, I would like to know how your experience was. We will be at the arborist show in Sacramento this weekend. We will be debuting the Monkey Beaver with August Hunicke. If you plan to be there just find the New Tribe booth to try one out.
Funny you should say that I just bought 2 new Protos with Sena installed and my wifes head is too small for the adjuster! We may need to drill out the rivets and make it work? Have you ladies tried rock climbing harnesses? Super lite and strong, maybe not set up very well for positioning in tree work, but Ive used one and it works surprisingly well.Even a size small in some harnesses just won't sit right on me. The best harness I've found is the TM. ErgoLite rides too high into my ribs even a small. I tried the Onyx and believe with more time and adjustment that harness would be sweet. I can climb in the Sequoia, but only if I don't have much on it (read rec climb).
X100 what Ladybird says on the WTCW. X1000.
Love my tree motion! Tried a couple like the ergovation and petzl sequoia which either didn't sit on my hips well or dug into my ribs pretty badly, the tree motion still kinda presses against my hips and I have to pull it up when climbing every now and then but overall it's been the best.
Yeh setting up rigging and hanging a 46 off me for blocking down has me grabbing my tool clips and yanking my harness up allot. I'll have a look, putting in a HB order soon, cheers.If you are having an issue with the Treemotion sliding down on you hips when you are loaded down with gear, I suggest getting the Treemotion shoulder straps. Once I started using the shoulder straps I never went back to just wearing the saddle. It is especially useful when you are lugging a chainsaw. A bit of added bulk, but worth it I think.
