I didn't realize the CDS harness was being manufactured any more. I was sent a CDS for our harness test years ago and it was a complete train wreck. Heavy, bulky and it did not perform as advertised. If you are falling from treestands often you should consider a CDS harness, but in all honesty I do not feel it's worth the downsides.

The old CDS harness stood for Controlled Descent System. It was a harness that you can fall in and it would lower you to the ground. I couldn't get it to work. and you had a big ball of wound line inside the back of the harness which made it bulky, heavy, and a big lump that felt like crap against your back. I have no idea what this new unit looks like - or if its even similar so take my feedback with a grain of salt.

I have tested it several times and it worked great, I.e. lowering me to the ground with out problems. I agree it heavy and bulky, it beats hanging from your harness if you are unable to back to your ladder or sticks.. The new model is soposed to be lighter and less bulky
