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.

    Awesome platform. Leightweight, and bites the tree hard. Lots of room to stand and pivot around the tree. Solid built! A+

    I was torn between buying the RR and Predator for 2019 archery season. I am extremely pleased I chose the RR and used it all last season. The platform is SOLID once you tighten up the strap, raise the platform in the tree and then cam it down. I hardly notice it during transport, strapped to my pack. I love it.

    The Ridge Runner

    Published by Mark on 24th Jul 2020

    Bow hunter since 1976. I have hunted from the same climbing tree stand since 1986. First year with climbing sticks and saddle. I tried the tethrd Predator Platform. I like the The Ridge runner better. It feels more firmly attached to the tree. It does not twist. like the Predator. But I do not like the adjustment screw for the level on the The Ridge Runner I think it is way to short, to level the platform. Just my 2 cents worth.

    I’m fairly happy with the product. My only question is how secure it is to a tree. I’ve tested it at home but not hunting yet. My concern is it seems to want to lean downward and can move when weight is distributed to one side or the other. I see it has the pop out feature but even using that it still doesn’t quite might my expectations. Hopefully come the season it’s not an issue.

    love my ridge runner

    Published by dane brockett on 15th Jul 2020

    Brand new to saddle hunting so I haven't had a chance to compare a lot of products. Still , the ridge runner is a very high quality piece of equipment. Even for a "newbie" its easy to use and I feel VERY comfortable and confident when using it. So much so that I now own 2 of 'em. I've shown all my buddies that own " that other platform" and they all prefer my ridge runner.

    New to saddle and platforms

    Published by Jeremy on 9th Jul 2020

    I ordered this because of comments and reviews I had seen and read on the SaddleHunter forums and on YouTube and I would have to admit they seemed very spot on. I like the caming style of this and the adjustability it offers as well.

    A tank

    Published by RhagenW on 26th Jun 2020

    This guy is built like a beast! Great welds and solid design. Very solid on the tree just got play with PUSHING the ridge runner down for the camming action. The textured surface is also great.

    Saddle hunting platform

    I have not hunted with this yet but have set it up for several practice climbs and shooting sessions. Works great much better than standing on my top stick.
