    That's why I'm looking at the buck cat it's 219.99 looks fairly similar to the buck ergo minus a couple attachment points

    +1 on the Buckcat. Buy 2 caritools and your good to go.

    I'm not a fan of the design. I would rather buy a saddle with everything out together rather then adding my own gear loops. I would only want to put a transporter or caritool here and there.
    I would much rather have the treemotion.

    Although ironically I use the suspenders from the MCRS on my rebellion Lmfao

    +1 on suspenders also. I use the weaver ones on my Buckcat. Helps a lot when your slinging a bigger saw....or when you climb with everything but the kitchen sink on your saddle....like me....:dancing:

    If I had another shot I would've even ponied up and bought the treemotion.

    I look at it this way, why work uncomfortably in a saddle that will make the job you love miserable?

    I'm getting back into climbing and looking for new gear. I usually end up buying something in the middle of the price range then wishing I had upgraded. So if price wasn't an option go with the tree motion?

    I just received the treemtion from tree stuff yesterday. Ordered their kit with safety line, sorry rope ( that's the sailor coming through), carabiners, ascender, throw weight etc. Nice people to deal with.

    For around $350 you could get a TreeMotion Light from TreeStuff with their online discount. I have ridden just about every latest and greatest saddles and this one came out on top for me. Highly recommended!

    My 1-2 cents: wait for a treemotion super light to go on sale and you will be in your price range. I was looking at the rebellion for a while but I'm not a big fan of Buckingham's saddles as they seem a bit clunky to me -- even the high end ones. All due respect to Buckingham, I just prefer a very lean saddle especially for pruning.

    Just curious what you dislike about the weaver? I climbed with the instructors buck master or deluxe (I forget exactly) as well as some other very old ones. When I got my own equipment I bought a Weaver 4D (model 1038) and I love it. I really like the Leather over a synthetic material. But I am a big guy (6'2" 270lb). And this is just a hobby. My saddle hangs on the wall more than in a tree. I hope to change that.

    Hip crusher! They're great standing if you have the wide belt but that buttstrap squeezes your legs together with any weight in it.
