never heard of it but i figure a safety harness is  like a parachute or brain surgery,not  things to be cheap about

havent heard of it or seen it before. got a link so i could take a look at it? I was thinking of just buying one of those hunter safety systems this year. lotta money for them but if it saves my life its worth every penny. they also have some pockets for gear to!

I really like the HSS harness - the pockets are great, but more importantly it is the easiest harness I've ever used, takes all of 20 seconds to put on.

The HSS vest also has a nice deer drag with it for hands free use to carry whatever else you have.  Check out the sales flier from www.sportsmansden.com.  (The one from Shelby, Ohio if more than one comes up).  They are on sale thru the 30th.  Good luck all.  Pan

One question for the people that bought HSS vest. I'm planning on up-grading to the vest from the one that came with my stand. I'm not sure which model to buy. The pro vest looks nice but I've read the it gets snaged on everything??? I also like the reverseable model for both bow and gun.
 
Which vest do you recomend?

My wife is buying me one for christmas.  i looked at both the pro and the standard reversable.  I liked two things about the standard that pushed me over the edge.  First, it's a little heavier and where i hunt it is colder more than warmer so it basically gives me another layer for the wind.  second, it is reversable so i don't have to wear orange on top of it.  third, it's about $30 cheaper than the pro model!  so i guess three reasons.

I just got the pro one and love it. The pockets are convenient and I have no complaints.

   I have the 'pro' model, I wouldnt say it gets snaged on everything. Although, I did have one incident with the clip on by pack (It has a 'chest strap') getting snaged in it. That was the only time I've had any problems with"snags". I can see where it could be an issue though.

The one big advantage(to me anyway), is that the mesh lets air flow through when its hot. Sometimes in the early bow season here, it can be pretty warm.
