The ProGear II is an arborist saddle with big side D rings and a floating roller D on the leg strap bridge. It has a fixed front tie-in point that closes with a large pear screw link.*
The leg straps are adjustable and include a quick release buckle. The leg pads feature extended cushioning at the inner thigh for superior support and comfort.
Double-density foam padding on both belt and leg straps provide support, load distribution and long wear. The belt pad is 6" wide at the back, tapering to 4" at the front.

*Arborists following ANSI standards use a triple-locking carabiner for front closure. We offer the screw link because it has no weak gate side like a carabiner does. The choice is yours.
