I have a Spider harness. It works into Scentblocker clothes. It has cobra type buckles with makes it nice to get in and out of. I've only used it with hang- on type stands. Seems over kill with the ladder stand I normally hunt from.

I love my Muddy harness. In the past I used and hated the cheapo harnesses that come with tree stands. A quality harness makes a world of difference in comfort and I won't go up a tree without one. It (and probably most harnesses nowadays) came with a strap to support your body weight in the event of a fall. YouTube is your friend for figuring this stuff out.

In a climber, it's not that bad(unless you're prone to motion sickness). Just pick a stout tree.
