Got mine Friday. Haven’t been able to hunt in it yet. Quality is typical Aerohunter - very nice. I am a fan of their quality. Mine may be different than most, they made mine with the linemans loop on the right side, at my request. Excellent customer service.
Glad to see they changed their tune on that lineman’s belt. They weren’t up for that when I ordered. I sent mine back because of the lineman’s belt. I absolutely hated it.

hmmm… maybe they’ve had enough people ask now? When I tried to ask if they would do that, they told me no.

I absolutely love the Kestrel. I'm sure others found other saddles more comfy but damn I could sit all day in it. I've got a giant ass so that prolly helps. I've been very pleased with the build quality. I know it's on the heavy side of saddles but I wear it in so I don't really notice it much.
Very excited to see what they come out with

I don't have a giant butt, but I also love the Kestrel. it is a bit heavy, maybe a bit over-constructed, but it is just awesome. I run a phantom as well, and I appreciate that it is light, but the Kestrel is more comfortable.

I had a kestrel size 2 ordered but canceled due to long wait times.
I wouldn't mind having one just to have.

What is a used one worth saddle only?

I may have misunderstood, but I think the poster is saying they reversed the lineman loop and belt for a lefty, not that they offered a double loop.

My understanding is they will not offer a double loop model at this point. They did say that they are listening and might in the future if the market warrants it. I remain hopeful and ready to spend.

Hey, if they can put the LB on either the right or left side, they can certainly put it on both.

An easy fix that would create instant orders.

It would be easy to drop the lineman’s belt and put traditional loops on. I might even order another one if they did. It was very comfortable. Also, I would like to see it in a solid cordura color like wolf grey. I am not big on the broadside camo. Mesh they use is a bit floppy. Needs more structural integrity for their pleat to function properly.

I would’ve had I kept it, 6-8’ of 8mm res tech & 4’ of 6mm sterling trc makes a mean adj. bridge. I’ve never loved webbing bridges bc if you rest your arms on , it digs into you b/c it’s so narrow
I agree, I am not a fan of the web bridge as it is not comfortable on the arms if you rest them on the bridge in early season. I plan to install an amsteel adjustable bridge and keep the web bridge on for redundancy. I do this with my Flex. I keep the web bridge short and use it for Rappelling. So for now, I'll run the double bridge. Who knows, I may cut the web bridge off at some point.

Hopefully Aerohunter is paying attention..... just build a saddle without all the game changing stuff on it. Like no built in lineman belts , no xtra loops. Put lineman loops that’s easy to clamp into on both sides. Offer colors that folks want. As far as the bridge that’s easy to change. Webbing , amsteel or 8mm rope they all work well. I know u can’t make everyone happy but I’m sure the masses would be happy with a update kestrel. Just my opinion.
