A tree care professional climbs like a monkey and cuts wood like a beaver. Arborist August Hunicke, who has a natural aptitude for supremely skilled, dangerous work up in the treetops, puts it like this for his Monkey Beaver™ brand:

August and colleague Joe Boyd pooled their ideas with New Tribe’s designer Casey Jones to create the sensational New Tribe/Monkey Beaver™ arborist saddle. We are proud to label this saddle with distinctive patches on the leg pads, with August’s Monkey Beaver “Dude” and a new take on the New Tribe logo.

If, like August and Joe, you were Made for This™ then our new saddle was “Made for YOU.”

• Firm, wide waistbelt is contoured from 8" at rear to 3" at front for sturdy, fitted support
• Rope bridge attaches to rigging plates with stopper knots, easy to exchange the bridge
• Forged aluminum bridge ring glides smoothly for every maneuver
• Waistbelt and leg loops equipped with buckles for quick and easy opening and closing without the need to readjust them
• Leg loops are expanded with lightweight fabric and webbing that distribute weight for comfort without bulk, and thigh straps keep them in place
• Optional foam pads can be added for even more leg comfort
• Leg loop buckles adjust for ideal weight distribution between the waistbelt and the leg loops
• Rear buckles on leg loops can be adjusted for perfect positioning
