Black Belt Saddle
James Williams
Black belt saddle

All i can say is it's the best one I've bought yet and the most comfortable seriously an amazing product.

Perfect tool for the mobile hunter

I have got to use the Ridge Runner Waist system during its development the past year. Chasing critters in the Southern Apps to waterfowling on the Carolina Coast- this belt has done everything I needed without the bulk and space grabbing of traditional vest. Perfect for whitetail scouting and the vast majority of hunting. Great for a day hunt or to carry in on a multiple day hunt. Amazing product!


Last year was my first year saddle hunting. I purchased the cheapest saddle I could find, and spent 600+ hrs in a tree. Loved it, but it was hard to stay still I was so uncomfortable. I have practiced in the BLACK BELT 3 times now, and I'm in heaven, super comfortable, easy to adjust and I am so happy with the purchase. Thanks again I am now a TIMBER NINJA FOR LIFE!

Love it!

Love the Saddle Bag!

Great people with great products

I couldn't ask for better service. It felt like doing business with a neighbor


Rides like a Cadillac! Super nice saddle, fits perfectly. I made a great choice. Thank you TN!

Fits both my linesman and tether

I was concerned about fitting both my 8mm linesman and tether (with Kong ducks) but they fit just right. It’s a tight fit but I haven’t had any issues. Like these much better than a dump pouch!

Great for early and late season

I have the Ultimate saddle which I love for all day rut sits, but ended up picking up the Nano, too. I was pleasantly surprised how comfortable it was for a single panel saddle. The stretch fits around you nicely and the small padding on the hips is a nice touch. I wore it all day scouting and forgot I had it on.

8mm Lineman's Rope
Deer Hunter
Strong and Last a long time!

I've used plenty of ropes through the years and they usually get ate up by tree bark, ropeman's and kong ducks. I've been using this all season while hunting a lot and it still looks great!

Black Belt Saddle

Great piece of gear!

Super comfortable for all day sits! Like everything else from timberninja, very well thought out, rock solid construction, and made entirely in America!

Well made!

I have had very limited time in it so far, but it is extremely comfortable and super light!! Glad I ditched my phantom for it!!!

C1 Carbon Fiber Sticks

more of a ? then a review.

305lb fat boy wanting to get into saddle hunting. but I feel like it's a skinny man sport kind of like paddle boarding lol. everything is built with a tolerance if these sticks are rated at 300 and can't hold me @ 305 well then, I'd say we got bigger issues then my stomach?

Quality is excellent

Purchased this saddle just for a draw hunt in Tennessee. First time saddle hunting and I’m hooked. I have set in the saddle for 3 days straight and comfortable is an understatement. I can see me using this saddle for a long time time.

10/10. (I’ll give it an 11/10 when I smoke my first slammer out of it).

Durable durable durable

This thing is a tank. It allows for good movement and foot placement to help with all angles. Very good grip to the tree. Dont be dumb like me though , and make sure to order your strap with it!!

What others aspire to be

This is the best saddle on the market. The ability to make simple adjustments provides amazing comfort while sitting in a tree for hours at a time. I can't think of anything negative to say at all, and thank you for making this in the USA!

Absolutely what I was wanting. Weight is the reason I ordered these, and they are made for the Kong Duck ascenders. Which I have.

Where have these been all my life!!!

What an upgrade to the old nylon strap and buckle!! Super quiet, light, easy to stow and strong!

A great alternative to heavy attachment methods

Great attachment. I did adjust the prusik knot and made it a Schwabisch knot as the regular prusik would get to tight trying to remove my stick or platform. Once you make that adjustment, it works very well.

Black Belt Nano Saddle
Ethan Rodrigue

I purchased the nano to use as a “hybrid” system with my hang on. But after several sits with it, it’s fine my self using my hang on as a “hybrid” with my nano! Dead silent, comfortable, extremely lightweight and ease of silent movement makes this saddle hard to beat!

C1 Carbon Fiber Sticks

Wobbling steps

Love everything about these sticks, besides the fact I’m 160lbs and when I step on the steps they wobble and lean to the side my foot is on, idk if that’s how they were intended to be designed but the first time it happened it almost shat my pants.

Quiet and no fuss!

Swapped to these for my climbing sticks and never looking back. Obviously much quieter than cam buckles and less fuss than tying a knot, especially as we get into the colder months. Will be recommending to everyone.

This puts cam buckles to shame! Easy to set up, lightweight, and super strong. Basically no stretch at all and makes my platform feel like an actual hard floor up in the tree compared to the stretchy cam buckle straps some come with! Will never use another style again!

The LEDGE Platform
Gunnar emberg

The ULTIMATE platform. Extremely strong, rock solid in the tree when paired with the SSP system from Timberninja, and no slipping, even when its wet! The integrated Versa button makes the design sleek and cuts down on added weight! My go to platform for all saddle hunts now!
