For years when I was a young man (in my teens) I would hunt from a treestand and never wear a safety belt. When a grew a little older, I would where one of those kind that just went around your waste. I thought that anything more would just get in the way. Then I switched to a safety belt that had shoulder straps. I thought this was the cats meow, even though there were companies just coming out offering a full containment system within a vest. I thought the legs straps would just be a pain in the butt so I purchased safety harnesses that didn't have them. Last year was the first time I ever used a full containment safety harness. It is made buy the hunter safety system. At first I was a skeptic, thinking it would still be uncomfortable and more of a distraction than it was worth. Boy was I wrong. This thing is so simple to use and put on. Not to mention you could fall out of your stand and hang there for hours and be comfortable. I know being young and dumb was a big art of me not getting one sooner, but this thing is awesome. They are a little on the pricey side, but if my hunting future needs to rely on a safety harness, this is the one I want. It is so easy to put on and strap to the tree. I would highly recommend it to anyone hunting from a treestand. The older I get the wiser I am. At this point in my life, I would never hunt from a stand without one. For those of you who don't use a safety belt. Don't jeopardize your life or your hunting career by being foolish. Get yourself a hunters safety system today. You will be glad you did.
