I’m new to saddle hunting. I ordered a tactisaddle and I cannot get comfortable in it. So I was thinking maybe we could help out future new guys while helping me. What is the most comfortable saddle that is easy to wear while walking in and out.
The Kestrel is awesome! It's fitted, with adjusters on the sides. I know they have the Flex but really can't see how they can improve the Kestrel. I just ordered the Kite just to check out and still waiting for delivery.
I have a flex and always wear it walking in and out without issue. I've even stalked while wearing it. So based on the different replies, every saddle is comfortable and easy to wear!
Seriously tho, it depends on the wearer.
This is my first season saddle hunting but i was surprised how comfortable my Aerohunter Kite is. You'll read lots of posts on here talking about getting into "saddle shape" and adjusting the straps & bridge for comfort but mine was good to go out of the bag. The only regard where i was slightly uncomfortable was walking in and trying to get the straps right on my legs but i expect that will come with time.
My only experience is with the Mantis. I am very happy with the comfort of it. Took a few sits to get into "saddle shape", but I think I am ready for the all day sits with the rut hitting in a few weeks.
