Take a list of every tree climber’s favorite harness features, toss in an engineer’s eye for enhanced adjustability, blend in an ergonomic tune-up by a physical therapist, and then send it down the line at America’s leading industrial harness manufacturer—and what do you get? One high-powered innovation that’s sure to win the working-climber’s heart.
This latest edition harness from Buckingham is the brainchild of tree climbing instructor and certified arborist Ed Carpenter and his physical-therapist sibling Dr. Amanda Carpenter. Together, the Carpenters spent countless hours crafting their dream harness into a study of fine-tuned ergonomics. The Ergovation is not only modular (22 replaceable parts), but highly adjustable. From hip-positioning rings that adjust fore and aft, to leg straps that allow buckle placement inside or outside the thighs, the Ergo was designed to fit a range of climbing styles and motions.
Only the second tree climbing harness to address adjustable lumbar support (besides Treemotion), the Ergovation includes a hidden pocket in the belt back for installing a half-inch closed-cell foam pad (included with each harness); that’s customizable lumbar support to help maintain optimal posture. You can even insert your own doctor-prescribed hot or cold therapeutic pad. If you’re in the market for a premium upgrade to your current harness, strap on this comfortable ergonomic wonder, sit back, and enjoy the ride. S 28-32; M 32-36; L36-40; XL 40-44
3:1 waist adjustment and removable abdominal stabilization system for precise fit and to prevent shifting.
