My advice is to just do it. Pull the trigger, and if you don't like it, you can always resell your saddle stuff on this forum or mainly saddlehunter.com for nearly the price you paid for it. Trust me, stuff on there goes fast. That's where I bought my saddle for a killer deal. I was just like you in regards to leaning towards it but not knowing what I was going to do for sure. I saw that saddle, pulled the trigger, and now I'm not looking back. It has been a game changer in my mind. Like I said, far superior than a classic ladder stand or ground blind.Super informative post. Thank you! I am leaning more and more towards switching to a saddle and the more real life reviews I read, the more I am thinking this is the route for me.
I bought the saddle alone so I could test it out before spending other $$ on the rest of the gear. There are tons of DIY routes out there also, and with that being said, what works for me may not work for you. Like the OP said, he doesn't like the fit of the Mantis, but it fits me near perfect and I love it. The key is to just try different systems out.
