Aero Hunter Shrike Hunting Saddle



The Shrike saddle combines exciting new features with the best of earlier Aero Hunter ideas:

— A natural seat contour like the Kestrel.

— A pleat in the seat. Like the Flex, it can expand to fit you better than other saddle brands. Aero Hunter is the industry leader in hunter comfort, and Flex was the first hunting saddle with a pleat like this.

— Customizable suspension like the Merlin: thanks to the hitch attachment you can set the bridge higher or lower on the loops for the best angle of support for your comfort and hunting style.

— Adjustable webbing bridge like the Merlin, but even better: you can change your bridge length on the fly with one hand, thanks to the AustriAlpin adjuster buckle.

— A single row of molle loops like Merlin; it’s all you need for attaching accessories.

Available here at Eastern Woods Outdoors with the new Gorilla Mesh fabric option. See below for all the specs.

NOTE: This last batch from Aerohunter no longer contains the integrated lineman’s belt. These are no longer made, when these are gone they are gone. Limited stock.



— NEW fabric option—Gorilla Mesh: a tougher, more durable mesh that will outlast any other.

— NEW Integrated Lineman’s belt: NO LONGER INCLUDED

— NEW Size X: For kids and smaller adults, in addition to the standard adult sizes 1 and 2.

— NEW internal webbing frame: The fabric seat is sewn on the outside of the webbing structure. With the webbing frame next to your body, the saddle stays in position better without the need for suspenders. More of your saddle fabric is exposed for better concealment.

— NEW COMFORT: Floating leg strap buckles are lifted with bungee cord so they float over your thighs whether you’re walking, leaning or sitting. And the leg straps flow from the waist belt, another improvement in the overall suspension of the saddle.

— MORE NEW COMFORT: An additional band of wide webbing relieves the pressure of your body weight under your thighs.

— As always, Aero Hunter’s life-safety construction is founded on 38 years of experience building harnesses to professional standards for the tree care industry.

— Proudly made in Oregon, USA
