Just wanted to bring this up again. I'm in need of replacing my treestand hunting harness. I have an HSS currently. I like the idea of going to a rock climbing harness instead, but I need linesman's belt attachment capability. Has there been any new products developed that allow use of linesman's belt. I like the thought of not having a harness around my shoulders. I get bound up when I'm dressed in heavier warm clothes and it impacts my shot process. I'd love for my shoulders to be free.

Just hook both sides of lineman belt to front center of harness it works fine.

I love my hss vest harness for sitting in my presets. Goes on either under or over layers fine. Pockets in it if you use it as outter layer, I usually put it under my jacket and fish it thru the “harness” opening on my coat. Very comfortable and does impede my movement at all.

I know Petzl has one with loops but it looks more bulky than a regular harness and I believe it's designed for tree work.

On my harness I sewed heavy duty strap loops onto it and use an extra tree strap section that I sewed with heavy duty string using a sewing machine.

This setup holds me more stable than just connecting to the center loop but that would work as well if needed.

Saddle > Rock harness > standard harness.

if you're going to be hooking up to the front already for safety, why not hook up to the front like a saddle and open your world of possibilities up wider? Just a thought.

When I was a kid my Uncle worked for the electric company. He taught me to bow hunt and gave me a lineman's belt and spurs. We killed deer like that before we ever heard of tree stands or ladder stands. When I was first learning to climb, going up was no problem but I was stabbing the tree to hard coming down and I had to learn to just barely stick the spurs and put your weight on them. That uncle drove a landing craft during WW II and was only 17 years old. He was a great shot with a recurve bow and made his own arrows. He is gone now so thanks for the memories.
