Two New Ways to Go Wild With New Tribe


The Treeboat Hideaway is a longer, smarter and prettier version of New Tribe's famous Treeboat Hammock.
-- 12" longer, fits everybody, big, tall, short and all.
-- has a panel on the deck to fit a sleeping pad for extra warmth and cushioning
-- made in beautiful natural woods camouflage fabric.

In your Hideaway, you can nestle in, unseen, supremely comfortable, enjoying nature, becoming part of it.  More...  

Champion trees are the largest known individuals of their kind.

In much the same way, this saddle is the Champion of recreational tree saddles. It fits the largest range of sizes, it has the largest belt pad and leg pads, and it rivals all others in adjustability, features and comfort. More...

Aero Hunter Tree Hunting System

There has been a lot of buzz about Onyx, the newest, best ever single bridge arborist saddle. What is Onyx? Nick Araya will tell you. Nick is the trusted expert who evaluates all kinds of arborist gear for climbers. Watch his video review—he can’t find anything bad to say about it.

Onyx is a single bridge saddle that comes in two versions--with a WEBBING BRIDGE or with a ROPE BRIDGE. YOU choose which bridge you want when you buy it.

And it's CONVERTIBLE. For the utmost versatility, our optional bridge conversion kits let you switch from the bridge your Onyx came with to the other kind. Sold separately.

You’ll see all these options in our online STORE.

Bridge Saddle for Recreational Climbing


Here is the first bridge saddle in our recreational climbing collection!


Walkabout is so light and lean you can walk anywhere wearing it, as if it wasn't there. In the trees, you can climb, swing, swivel and branch walk and your Walkabout moves with you.

The Walkabout is available with a webbing bridge or with a rope bridge. It is lightly equipped with two gear loops, two carabiner loops and four tool slots in just the right places. The new Walkabout weighs only three pounds. Stylish, low key camo color in two adjustable sizes. 

Like the Onyx, Walkabout is CONVERTIBLE. You can choose an optional bridge conversion kit that allows you to switch from the bridge your Walkabout came with to the other kind. Sold separately.


Aero Hunter Tree Hunting System

Tree hunters have been talking to us a lot lately because they want a safer way to be in the trees. Falls from tree stands are all too common. It was natural for New Tribe to step in with a safe alternative to tree stands.


The Aero Hunter allows a hunter to suspend safely from a tree strap on the trunk, wearing a super lightweight and comfortable rope bridge tree saddle ideal for long hours aloft. The system is designed for versatile positioning. From one tie-in point, the hunter can move up or down, and control distance from the trunk for stability and maneuvering. More... 





Optional Leg Pads only, or a set of both Belt Pads and Leg Pads


Yellow Jacket is bright but has no bite.

It excels in comfort. Yellow Jacket is our first model to use structural features rather than foam padding for comfort.

That's also why it's surprisingly compact and lightweight, perfect for recreational tree climbing.


How about the TREES?

A friend recently wrote to New Tribe pointing out that our website doesn't say anything about our values concerning the welfare of trees and forests.  In our 30 years working with tree climbers, we find a strong current of respect and love for trees and all nature. With that spirit, and good protective practices, we are building a culture for tree climbing that keeps the trees safe.



Working arborists, forest research scientists, tree hunters and recreational tree climbers...New Tribe products are

a boon to anyone who wants to climb a tree, and we've made many good friends in the tree climbing world.

Now we are extending our reach to include everyone who hangs their life on a rope or cable. You are all important to us.


Our purpose is to design and build the highest quality, innovative vertical gear and accessories,

to assist you to choose yours and use it safely, and to conduct our business with integrity.
