For the most part, it's well designed and well made but here are some components that could be better: 1) the leg strap buckles are clunky - should have stayed with the plastic ones as these ones have come loose, 2) The bridge has no length adjustment and the opening for the carabiner is even smaller so it really limits your ability to pivot for drop shots, 3) the tree fork is extremely difficult to extend as it sticks very tight once it's tucked all the way in.
Included with the Hybrid:
- Lineman’s Rope Set with Prusik and Carabiner
- Tether Rope Set with Prusik, Carabiner, and Stopper Ball
- Bridge Strap with Carabiner
JX3 Hybrid Deer Hunting Saddle
A high percentage of tree stand accidents happen when stepping into a stand or stepping off the stand because you’re not belted to the tree at that moment. What’s different, is that in the JX3 Hybrid you’re in the tree saddle and you are belted to the tree at all times while climbing, descending and hunting you are free to move around the tree in safety, not worried about falling at any time.
If you slip on the climb or descent, the Hybrid tree hunting saddle has a simple but safe harness design that forces you into a sitting position. By forcing you into a sitting position you will not strike the tree and the fork on the seat makes contact with the tree, not you. Safety is our #1 priority, along with comfort, mobility, and durable lightweight materials. If your looking for the most versatile deer hunting saddle, the JX3 Hybrid is for you.

I purchased a couple weeks ago and have sat in it in my back yard several times up to an hour and the comfort for me is second to none. Within a couple sits it was easy to use. Im happy with the purchase.
Love the saddle! I've even sold my lone wolf sit and climb which was my main means of hunting. Would have given five stars but there were a few altercations that had to be made for my personal setup. I am an arborist by trade and and climb using saddles almost daily. so therefore there were just a couple of things I had to modify before it felt at home to me.
Overall a solid piece of equipment. Pleased with it.only thing keeping it from 5 stars is mine didnt come with load hauling straps as advertised
The saddle is very well designed,feature rich,looking forward giving it a try this season.
Purchased the JX3 hybrid to try out and I was not disappointed at all. Not heavy due to the frame pack, use is just like any other saddle except the JX3 is way more comfortable! I can literal recline back and just end up asleep while waiting for game lol. Quality is great, customer service is fantastic, and shipping was extremely quick! If you are thinking about buying one don’t hesitate you won’t regret it.
Get past the learning curve, a few sits, you will love it.
I love this saddle, completely changed the way I hunt. Getting in the stand went from mundane to exciting. You are invisible to deer in this thing. Incredibly comfortable!
Beats the heck out of leaning up against a tree for hours like I normally did in a lock on. Super comfortable and great back support. It def feels safe being all harnessed in. And can move around in the tree very easily to avoid being spotted
