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.

Solid platform with plenty of room to stand. Holds up very well to side pressure and easy to cam to tree. Will never go back to my climber again.
The quality of construction is outstanding. The issue I’m having is with securing it to the tree. I tighten down as hard as I can with the strap they included, but it’s never tight enough to counter my weight. Only the bottom 2/3 teeth are in the tree, so it moves a lot. This may be how all small platforms are, idk. I have since tried mounting with a ratchet strap and that has proven to be a solid work around. I am having trouble finding a permanent strap with a soft loop on both sides for easy mounting.
New to saddle hunting, I am in metal fabrication myself, it's a well built product, thanks
Platform is super solid. Doesn’t budge even the slightest when camed over properly
I got 5 hunts in on this platform before the season closed thanks to their fast order processing and shipping. Simple to use design, rock solid on a tree. It is a little bulky and odd to carry but it's not as heavy as it looks. Getting a pouch or carry bag is a good idea. I would recommend this platform if my friends were in the market for one.
Subject says it all. Only downside is it’s hard to cam on trees with deep shaggy bark. Other than that it’s the cats ass
Super sturdy! Plenty big to do everything in a tree you would want to do! Really enjoy it! Thanks!!!
Great piece of equipment for our hunting success
The Ridge Runner is easy to use and a sturdy platform. It it plenty big enough and makes no noise once attached.
Only platform I've tried but I'm definitely impressed.
