Default What if any safety strap/system do you use and why

I am going to buy an new safety vest this year. I have always used a ranger seat tied with rope and used rope for the strap around the tree. I just don't want to get caught up in the hype of some of the "name brand" vest if the really aren't that good. I have a cheapo that came with a stand last year but it is junk I just don't trust it. So I thought I would ask to see what everyone else was doing/using. Thanks for any help/input on this matter.

There are very few problems that can't be solved with the proper application of High Explosives!

If there is trouble let it be in my day, but let my kids have peace. Thomas Pane

Because of a bum knee and a rotator cuff injury, I don't use climbers or ladder stands. I just want all of you who use them to PLEASE spend the money for a good safety system.
In 2007, it became my sad duty to inform a wife that her husband had been killed when his climber failed him while going up a tree without a safety system. He was found hanging upside down with his feet strapped in the lower half, and his hands just a few inches from the ground.
Think of your family and friends, not to mention yourself when choosing a lifesaving device, and don't become a statistic.
God Bless you all with a safe and successful season!
