    Can't imagine why.

    Been rocking the monkey beaver for a few weeks now. I posted a more in depth review on treebuzz so I'll sum it up with this: It's a top notch work saddle and is exactly what I wanted in an upgrade from the onyx.
    Nice work August, Joe, and the fine folks at new tribe.

    I see you're a minimalist climber, too.

    Haha, I'm not too bad I hope. Just a canopy anchor/friction saver, 2 spare biners, mini 8, and a loop runner.

    No school like the old school!
    Actually I don't think I could go back to this...

    Two loop runners/ sling, plus a biner does a lot more, IMO. I don't like to leave with 2/1. When everything looks hand-manageable from the ground, its easy to find that one with a funny torque built-in, or a bit too heavy. Slinging each side of the cut and clipping together saves your body on those that are a bit too much to be gentle on the shoulder/ wrist/ elbow.FWIW.
    If it looks like I asked a question, but put a period, it's probably a question.
    Don't know why I'm question-mark challenged online. 😀 New Year's Resolution, better proof reading.

    I just finished reading this whole thread start to finish. Thanks to Rico if he ever comes back, for keeping this thread alive and for his unique insights as an big-wood veteran climber and also as a Treemotion Light owner.

    It sounds like everyone that has tried this saddle just loves it. It would be nice to hear again from some folks that gave an early review of the saddle after only owning it for a short while, to see their impressions of it over a longer time period.

    Thanks for all the input here. I?ve shrunk weight wise and my mb medium doesn?t fit me right. Frustrates the hell out of me actually. I need to get a small . Thing falls off my ass. Hard to get it tight enough. Needs suspenders but I hate suspenders.

    I was looking at the saddle again. I too need a small. The medium is as tight as I can get it and still a bit big. I donno if it has stretched out a bit or what cause I know I haven?t lost any weight.

    I?m in between sizes on everything I wear and it?s a hell of a lot easier and more enjoyable to go up a size than down. Lol

    Was looking at treestuff and they say all but the xl has been discontinued by the manufacturer.They still look available off new tribes site.

    Any input?

    I?d love the the exact saddle in a small and customized. Sub out the red material for like green and the bridge for the arbormaster Hawkeye.

    I?m a sucker for the lime green stuff.
