I have tried searching with no luck. Any one on here using a saddle from Flat Branch outdoors? If so, which one and what are your thoughts on it?

I haven’t heard of them. I just visited their website to see what they offered. What makes you want to go with them?

their trad looks like a classic

Their “nest” saddle looks like a transformer, archon and method

They have some really nice features and just wanted to see what people thought of them if anyone on here was using them yet.

I'm looking at the solitude, the description mentions a comfortable cupping feel. The leg straps hook into the lower portion of the saddle. I like that leg strap location looks like very little binding. I've only seen one video on YouTube, just wanna know more.

Is DIYBowhunting on here? He’s got one of their saddles.

I just grabbed some of their suspenders. Those are awesome.

I saw the DIYBowhunting video and that's what got me interested, this latest video wasn't up yet. Thanks for sharing!

That Solitude 2.0 does look like it covers all the surface area really well, which looks very comfortable. What kind of fabric are they using on the main saddle? It looks like a fine mesh saddle?

It looks comfortable but it also looks like it would sag and be annoying to wear hiking in.

The exact material I'm not sure. Some type of strong mesh and they also have camo pattern material. The video that DIYBowhunting made, the leg straps are on the outside of the lower section of main saddle webbing. Maybe with that leg strap location across the thigh, it might help prevent sagging while walking in. IMO

Oh shoot, them boys outta walker county, I take back everything I said, it looks like a wonderful company that makes wonderful saddles... :sweatsmile:

I wonder how many saddle hunters you’ll see on Bankhead this year.
