The Ridge Runner by Out on a Limb Mfg.
This platform measures in at 16” X 8” and weighs right around 56 ounces. Like the Podium, The Ridge Runner is all aluminum and coated in a very durable anti-skid finish. This platform uses a cam over system with a pull strap much like the Podium. The Ridge Runner will have a few improvements that will help make the entire setup quicker, quieter and even safer.
The Ridge Runner is notched all along the circumference of the platform to increase traction and to help the overall ability. Another new feature will be the leveling system. Instead of using two individual knobs like the Podium, the Ridge Runner uses a single larger leveling knob for an easier adjustment.
NOTE: All Ridge Runner orders will come equipped with the updated longer knob as well as ONE pull strap.

Why The RIDGE RUNNER Saddle Hunting Platform?
Advantages Of Saddle Hunting
- Extremely Lightweight Tree Saddles: Tree Saddles are lightweight, making you more mobile. Perfect for the Public Land Owner! Make sure to check out our new Ultra-Light saddle hunting steps for the ultimate lighweight hunting pack.
- Little to no noise: With tree saddle, you don’t get the noise typically associated with pulling up tree stands.
- Hunters Safety: While there have been lots of hunters who have fallen from conventional tree stands, when saddle hunting you are tethered to the tree from the moment you leave the ground until you step back on it after the hunt, making it almost impossible to fall.

Been using the ridge runner for the past 3 seasons. You will not find a platform that grips tighter to the tree. Will be the last platform you ever need. Thinking about buying another for an extra set.
This platform is amazing! I can literally hunt the entire tree. I used the XOP Edge last year, and liked it, although it was a little heavy, and I didn’t feel comfortable taking any weak side shots. Definitely not the case with the ridge runner… I haven’t found a shot I can’t take yet. The weight on this platform is amazing as well.
Works great with my new tree saddle, could be a little wider when standing on it but understand the importance of keeping the weight down, great product for sure, thanks
56 yrs old. 1st yr saddle hunting. Love your platform. Its so perfect, Almost bought 2 because, i have learned: when you find the perfect product, buy 2 before they on to a new version. New versions are not always better
The OOAL Ridge Runner is a top tier saddle platform, Matt is constantly leading edge with his designs and manufacturing. I ran the ridge runner 3 seasons and it was near perfect. The platform grips so aggressively and impossible for any slippage. The cam over thought setting the platform takes about 30 seconds and your done. The width of the platform teeth bracket allowed me to get into trees some really narrow trees traditional loc ons and climber would not. It's never kicked out and I've never had an issue with it being 6'1. 290# size 12 boot.
Very stable, I have used on only 1 tree so far but it was a less than ideal tree (about 12 inches in diameter and angled) and the Ridge runner still performed well. Would buy again but don't need to as running saddle and only need 1 now
Great platform. Sticks to the tree like it should. Great wet traction.
This is my second season with the Ridge Runner and I’ve been throughly impressed. Coming from a tree stand it did take me a few try’s to get the method to attach it to the tree down, but after that it’s been great! The platform is rock solid with plenty of room to space your feet apart. The traction grooves allow you to have the grip needed to move for shots. I’ve also used the platform as a seat, simply strap it to a tree and use a knee pad as a cushion and you’re set for a hunt from the ground.
I'm new into saddle hunting and did nonstop research on platforms and decided to go with the ridge runner, I absolutely love it. It's much lighter then I thought it would be, and more sturdy. I've tried a few via friends and I'm pleased with the ridge runner.
Lifetime Craftmanship when it’s locked down .. solid all day thanks for the excellent product
