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.

I was able to try out different saddle platforms and this one fits me perfect. Enough room for my feet, non slick surface and easy to set up.
The construction is impeccable and it is surprisingly light weight for how solid it is made. There is a bit of a learning curve when it comes to anchoring it into the tree. I am still pretty new to it and I am confident I will figure it out with more usage. I’m happy with the product and the price.
I used it about 10 times so far and it is easy to setup, stable, and light to carry. The only thing that could be improved is the buckle, it is made of steel and when it touch the platform it make it ring like a bell.
I bought my first Ridge Runner then ended up selling it a while later. I immediately regretted it and a few days later ordered another one to correct my mistake. I love the design, functionality, the camming over design, extreme grip on your boots, everything about this platform. Straps to a pack super easy. Cams to the tree super strong, does not slip on any tree I’ve put it on, no flex that I can see in it when your full weight is on, made in the USA by an awesome company. I just can’t say enough good things about this platform and the company behind it! Highly recommended!!!
I have not used the RR for hunting yet so my rating is based on fit and finish, which was impressive.
Absolutely love this stand
I bought the ridge runner two years ago. I now own three of them I do a lot of hunting on private property and family property and set tree stands up before hunting season. this is a great product for saddle hunters it’s lightweight durable locks onto the tree makes me feel safer in the tree. If I’m going in mobile to a different area I always have the ridge runner with me. Highly recommend buying ridge runner for saddle hunters !
Great product, well built by a great company. 1st class all the way
For the price you guys need to find a better way to attach the strap. I do like like how it comes off of platform so easily. Bands work okay but I’m sure they will need replacing soon
Very sturdy quality, quiet to move around on, solid with side pressure and very easy to cam to the tree. I’m looking forward using it for a very long time.
Took 2 attempts to cam correctly the first I used it.
Now it's super easy to get locked in.
Today for the first time I used it with my saddle. Rigid and solid up in tree. No issues with side pressure.
Shot a few arrows out of it.
Would recommend the ridge runner if you're a newbie to saddle hunting like me!
I love the Ridge Runner Platform, lightweight, just the right size for me.
