    Those vertical D rings are so sweet!

    Ok I got to climb in the new harness. My initial impression is... it's pretty sweet!
    I don't climb everyday and I don't do it for a living so my opinion is more from a rec/ aspiring arborist point of view. The only other saddles I've been in are an old weaver pole climbing style harness and the treemotion lite that I've had for almost 2 years I think.
    I really like the saddle. The buckles are a must in my eyes now that I have a saddle that has them. The saddle was extremely easy to put on and adjust. I actually didn't adjust anything other than the waist belt and secondary leg loops.
    The belt is super comfortable. The belt padding is somewhere around 3/8-1/2" thick so it's pretty stiff and rigid starting out, but i believe it will loosen up and conform to my body shape pretty quick.

    The big d's in the back are great. They stick out just enough and you don't have to search for them. They are just like the video says, just sitting there waiting for something to be hung on them.

    I don't really know what all to say about it other than I really like it! It's very very comfortable and extremely well made and thought out. August, Joe. And New tribe did a fantastic job in my opinion.
    When I get some more spare time I'll get some more detailed pics up .

    To recap my quick crappy initial review... it's great and I wouldnt hesitate to buy it again.

    That's what we like - quick, crappy, initial reviews.

    I am kicking myself hard for not purchasing this saddle. I am hoping possibly praying that they will have some sweet pricing at TCIA which in that case will mean I will own one.

    Just came back from visiting New Tribe a few minutes ago. A lot of orders coming in and they are small operation.
    I'm actually having some changes made to mine. It may be that I never stop changing things… for myself that is.
    As to whether they will be at TCI. I don't know.
    New Tribe isn't going. Sherrill/TreeStuff is going of course but I don't think that they've nailed anything down with New Tribe yet.
    Wesspur has orders in for them already.
    It's nice to see it taking off.
    Very solid workingman saddle.

    It looks as comfortable as can be.

    I'm still waiting on mine. The last update I got was that they planned on shipping it on the 21st, but I don't think it's shipped yet. I know they're busy, so I'm not too worried about it. Is there no greater challenge than waiting for a new saddle to come in the mail?
