Thanks for the review. Considering the kite is only 25 more what are your thoughts?
I can't speak for any of the H2's but I have a kite and I like it. I'm yet to hunt out of it but I've practiced with it a lot in the yard and so far I like it.

Just placed an order for one with the leg straps. At the worst, if I don't like it I can sell it and get most of my money back. But the whole idea of a saddle is appealing. Plus I already have climbing sticks, a Muddy lineman's rope, and an HSS tree strap. All I'm missing is a dedicated platform. That can wait.

How are the lineman’s loops on this saddle? From the pics it looks like they are a single layer of 1” tubular webbing which would be likely to flop down, close up and be hard to hook into one-handed. Your thoughts/pics?

I have one side of it tied on with the trailing end of the rope stored in a dump pouch. Typically I’m either on the ground when I attach my LB or hooked to my tether. Either way, I try not to have anything in my hands. I’ll try it here in a bit and see if it’s bothersome and let you know. It’s one piece of tubular nylon folded over and sewn so it’s relatively stiff and sewn in such a way that it stays somewhat open.

I did a trial run a few days ago and honestly it wasn’t hard at all to clip in one handed.

Do you find the saddle rides up (you slipping down)? Or do the leg loops help prevent that?

I was in it for about two hours shooting from different positions and never noticed any ride up. Nor did I feel like the leg straps snugged up. The seat portion kinda cups my butt in such a way that I don’t notice any movement when my weight is on the saddle.

How's the sizing? I ordered a medium. With a 33 waist I'm towards the high end of a small. But I read that they run large. I emailed them earlier. Waiting to hear back.

How will it handle layers do you think?
The belt and leg straps are pretty highly adjustable. I think it’ll compress fill material in any garment, but I certainly think there’ll be room for me to layer. I’ll let ya know in a few months, cause it’s too dang hot in Missouri to try it now! Lol.
