Good design and functional

From time to time,I use 'yellow jacket'.Leg pad is not so comfortable but it is easy to pack and carry.
The color 'yellow' of this saddle is attacting.Good saddle I think.

Yellow Jacket Roxx

I love this saddle, it keeps me sitting straight up and doesn't twist around or ride up. very comfortable, cool and sturdy and I Love the bag it comes in. I wondered about the side D rings, I like the metal ones because I can hear beeners click in and they're easy to find, I was surprised to find the soft D's on the yellow jacket are just as easy to find and when rec climbing it is nice to be stealth. I haven't done any work in this saddle yet, but I'm thinking I'll like the mobility and less bulk. Thanx New Tribe, I love my new saddle.

Nice saddle1

I'm a fairly new recreational climber so I haven't worn too many other saddles. However, this one is much more comfortable then my first saddle. It stays in place pretty much with anything I'm doing. I'm on the higher end of the medium size so it's kinda tight putting on initially. I like the side drings when I'm on lanyard.

Finally, a lightweight harness that works!

I have had mine for 5 or 6 months now and have been surprised by it. For whatever reason, New Tribe harnesses sometimes ride up on me so that they aren't reallly holding my hips/waist. This one stays put! It compresses down to a remarkably small size in your pack. It is extremely quiet with the only metal parts being the delta and the rectangle buckles on the leg straps. (and those rec buckles can be quieted easily with leather silencers!)

I could go on for a while about this harness, but it might be better if you just check out the review I did for it: http://youtu.be/C67tnraY9jM

Just get the harness. Chances are, you'll love it.

Great lightweight saddle.

I'm doing this review for my 12 yr. old son and he is really sold on this saddle.We've had it about two weeks now and we climb about every day. It is everything the tengu is but in a lighter package that doesn't sacrfice safety, strength or comfort. Only problem now is little sister wants to climb and we maybe be getting another one soon. Nick has a good review on youtube and that helped seal the deal. Thanks New Tribe for continuing to offer great climbing products.
