I thought I'd ask the people that should know best.

I hunt from a treestand and I'm thinking a rock climbing harness - like a Petzl Calidris - is far better than a treestand shoulder type harness if I fall out of the stand. Even with the leg loops, these shoulder harness have a waist strap that gets pulled up into the ribcage when the restraint line is pulled tight.

I'm thinking the rock climbing type would be a better choice and less resticting on my legs and chest - am I right about this or comepletely off base? Thanks.

Use the appropriate harness for which it was designed for.

Do you really want to be caught in a fall from your waist, in front, while holding a loaded rifle in front of you? It would also make you somewhat top heavy so a seat harness wouldn't be advisable in that situation either.
