i always wear my HSS vest i used to wear the full body harness that came with my summit it was a pain to put on in the dark i labeled the straps to make it easier.by the way patriot you can have it if you want i dont wear it its in excellent shape and all you got to pay is the shipping,squirell hawker that caribener sounds good but leaving teathers up year round is not a good idea the weather will damage them and the rocking of the trees will loosen them up,it may be a good idea to use it temporarily when you first get up the tree while you attach your tether otherwise i wouldnt do it,but thats me do what you want
Here is a cool tip for those who have not already heard it. Get a real, rated, climbing carabiner. A steel one, not an aluminum one with a flashlight in it [:D]
Clip it to your tether and scavange all your tree straps from all your old sucky harness systems. Then just leave the strap in the tree for the season, climb up and quickly and quietly clip to the tree.
