I can also speak to Jamie's attention to detail. I wish him much success. I'm sure it's only a matter of time now.

I really like the looks of the saddle but am going to have to hold off. I hope that sells a ton.

@Treehopper2 @valerio024 what waist sizes do you think this saddle is good for?
I have the original prototype which was designed to fit my 34” waist @JCLINE84 made some slight changes to the straps to make it fit more people.
@valerio024 has the current production model he may be able to chime in and give a better answer to this question.

The waist belt is 60" long so it will accommodate pretty much everyone. The suspension of the saddle is plenty large and I can't imagine anyone under 44" having any fitment issues. But I bet even guys larger than that wouldn't have issues depending upon their build.

First off, the saddle wears in well and doesn't hang below your butt giving you that bunchy diaper feeling. The way the panels attach together and deploy, as Jamie highlighted in the video, takes care of any panel sag and makes returning the panels to their "starting position" effortless.

Valerio024,

What video are you referring to that Jamie highlighted the panel attaching together? I only see pictures in this thread.

I wish the main webbing was sewn like the Anderson sling though. That being the uppermost webbing (First webbing) is sewn with the lowermost webbing (Fourth webbing) to form one loop. Thus, the Second and Third webbing would be sewn together to form the other loop. Webbing references are from the top of the saddle to the bottom. The Anderson and Recon both utilize this routing and it is super comfortable and essentially eliminates any hot sports because it evens out the pressure.. (The First and Fourth sewn webbing would also mirror the traditional one panel design. The other loop just distributes the weight more evenly compared to a single webbing design). I think when people starting making these DIY slings they did not have an Anderson to copy and thus the routing you see in the Overwatch Saddle came to be.

Treehopper, can you inquire why he sewn the webbing as he did? Did he try the Anderson sling routing?
