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.

    Absolutely awesome. This is my first year saddle hunting and I read all the forums, watched all the YouTube reviews, and settled on a Ridge Runner. I haven’t hunted out of it yet, but after messing around in the back yard, I know I made the right choice. Absolutely rock solid, and very easy to set up. Great product!

    I just got into saddle hunting and was looking at platforms. Looked at the Predator Platform from Tethered and it didn't seem like it would have the best traction. Watched several reviews on the Ridge Runner and decided to go with it. The platform is great! I have been practicing climbing a lot lately and it has performed flawlessly. The traction is great, I've never slipped while pivoting or applying side pressure. It's also really quiet, even with wet shoes it doesn't squeak when moving around. I have yet to use this on a hardwood tree as I have been practicing on a pine in the yard. Even with the soft bark the platform has never shifted on me. I liked the Ridge Runner so much I ordered 4 Shikar Sticks and can't wait to get them and try them out. If you are thinking about getting a platform buy this one!

    Ridge Runner

    Published by Brad Robinson on 23rd Apr 2020

    Light weight, Rock solid. A little dissapointed in the fastening of it to the tree. Had it fall out of my hands trying to get it strapped to the tree at height. I don't like the way it fastens.

    The Ridge Runner

    Published by Malcolm McHose on 17th Apr 2020

    Built solid doesn't make any noise when moving around. Plenty of foot room and attaching it to a tree is very simple. The one and only thing I would change is the round knot head's you attach the strap to. I wish they would have made them a bit bigger. Other than that it's a great hunting platform.

    Ridge runner platform

    Published by Ricky Hall on 30th Mar 2020

    I am new to saddle hunting; however, I have used many treestands. The Ridge Runner easily attached to the tree and was rock solid upon standing on it. I attached it about 12" from the ground and then tried to get it to slip. Couldn't do it. This thing bites the trees. Very stable on several different trees such as oak, cedar, elm, and pecan. The grip is the best feature. The notches cut into the platform gives plenty of traction even when my boots are caked with black land mud. I also like the width as I can stand with my feet farther apart. This helps since I'm mainly a leaner. And last, this platform easily attaches to my backpack. For me , the ridge runner is a perfect fit for my saddle hunting needs.
