Saddle Hunters – safety ? #archery

Being mostly a hang-on and sticks guy, I can really appreciate the idea of a saddle and the mobility and light weight it offers. I really want to give one a try this coming fall. The one thing I’m apprehensive about though is a potential safety issue…maybe I’m overlooking something.

With a ladder, or hang on, as long as you are wearing a harness, and tethered to the tree, it takes two failures to have a potentially life altering fall. First your platform or hanging strap/chain has to fail, or you have a mental lapse, slip, step off, whatever, and fall. But the tether always keeps you from hitting the ground. Only if your tether also fails do you have a problem. Thus the two failures it takes to have a serious injury.

In a saddle though, your bridge and tether are your only life lines. No platform to catch your feet on, no seat to stay planted in, just a rope and or strap suspending you from the ground. Does anyone run a back-up tether that is not limiting on mobility and/or comfort? Any thoughts or ideas how to get over this? I know lots of people have used saddles for a long time, and I have not heard of any problems. I just always like a back-up of sorts for any potentially hazardous situations I get into.
