it is for a treemotion harness which i find stays put fairly well compared with my old treeflex which seemed to need tightening every 5min!

just thought the shoulder straps could make it all a bit more ergonimic and better on the body.

thanks for replies :)

I use one. Won’t go back to not using it. It’s just some 50mm webbing and a ladderlock buckle. Mainly good for keeping harness up when you’ve got a heavy saw on it but also provides a chest point for long ascents. It’s difficult to say whether it’s helping my back but my gut feeling is that it is.

I've tried the tm top harness. It was handy when chogging with the 66 but found it got in the way the rest of the time. Just another thing to get caught up. It was also pretty uncomfortable and annoying that it wasn't quick release.

I found that by properly adjusting the harness and wearing it how its supposed to be (tightly below the hips) it didn't slip much anyway.
