Oohh baby...aahh...

I just got this and have only used it a few times yet. But I've used enough of a varity of saddles that I can tell you you can't beat this for rec. climbing. I have a wide back work saddle that I've used for rec climbs for three years and it's ok. But it weighs 6 lbs. Two of the things that I like most about the Tengu are it's weight, or lack thereof, and comfort. I have my own climbing academy and am going to be wearing this thing ALOT. These two points alone are key. Plus I climb a lot of wild trees that require packing in your gear. The lightness and also the quiet facter play a key role. There are plenty of places to hang gear from including the small loops on the leg pads. Nice touch. I can't vouch for the longevity factor, yet. But I've read enough reviews from other climbers that gave the thumbs up here.

Did I say comfortable? Nice. :)
