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.

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
Fantastic solid and light. Everything I could have asked for!!
Just what you would expect from OOAL: well built products, great craftmanship and great CS when needed. Platform is sturdy and packs well. Great middle of the road sized platform.
Platform works great! Bites into tree very well, and does not move with side pressure. I would recommend!
The only thing that could improve this product would be if it had a nicer strap.
I love the ridge runner! It is small and packs well on most packs, yet deceptively spacious. I have stood off the back pusing away from the tree and it did not loose grip or shift. For everyone saddle hunting this is the platform to buy. I did use some rubber tubing to silence the cam buckle against any accidental metal-to-metal contact.
Shipping was quick workmanship looks great nice and light may have to break it out this weekend for bear hunting
