Climbing Saddles & Harnesses

Arborist harnesses for tree climbing are very important, especially if you’re trying to execute a flawless work climb. Regardless of what type of climber you are or what type of work you are doing in the Tree Care Industry, one thing is for sure, you had better be comfortable in your harness! With the many varieties of different harness options that focus on comfort--right now is a great time to be a climber. Bartlett carries great harness options from trusted brands such as Petzl, Tuefelberger and Weaver Leather.

Ergonomics tend to play hand in hand with what we do, by being comfortable while you are working in trees, you are buying more time to do more of the things you love... like keep climbing for longer in your career! Sling saddles tend to be an older, more traditional style harness that didn’t look much towards comfort but more towards ease of use and affordability. Sling saddles tend to be more in the value range, but comfort won’t be the main selling point. One of our favorite sling saddles is the Weaver Sling Style Saddle.

Leg harnesses tend to give the climber more mobility by allowing their legs range of movement while weighted. Many of the newer, high-end harnesses tend to have leg straps instead of the traditional sit style. The reasoning behind this has been with comfort in mind and because of this, their prices tend to be higher. Look at it this way, it’s an investment into your climbing career that pays off by potentially adding a few more years into a professional tree climb career. You cannot go wrong with the Petzl Sequoia Saddle (which is also available in an SRT version) or the very famous Teufelberger Tree Motion Evo!

We also offer harness and suspender options that can make your set-up even more comfortable.

Regardless of price, a sling or leg saddle will be of no use to you if you are uncomfortable in it. Making sure that the fit is exact with summer and winter clothes on will maximize your investment and your ability to climb comfortably.
