Since its initial launch in 2007,the treeMOTION has wowed its users with exceptional comfort, a great range of motion, individual gear loops, great work positioning convenience, and improved distribution of loads as well as its premium quality materials. It has become one of the most well-liked climbing harnesses in the world of tree care. In spite of that, it has been our aim to further improve the treeMOTION, by taking user feedback into consideration.
The PPE-approved rear tie-in attachment option according to EN 358 serves mainly as a retaining feature if the user is working bent over forward in the tree. In addition, the treeMOTION was tested for a total load of 120 kg rather than 100 kg. This allows climbers to safely carry more gear, if needed. The new UV-resistant seams make the treeMOTION also suited for the harsh conditions under the Australian sun. For the safety of climbers, we arranged a stitched seam at both ends of the rope bridge in order to ensure that the rope ends are long enough beyond the knot. Furthermore, the use of the DMM Axis Swivel S on the rope bridge instead of the ring was tested as well.
At the request of many, the Comfort Back Padding has become a standard part of the treeMOTION. This padding has wide flexible grooves that support the dissipation of heat and allow the padding to rest snugly against the wearers body without creases. The central part of the padding is specifically designed for the lumbar region and provides additional support.
The treeMOTION has been built to cater to the highest demands and expectations, all around the globe. This has been achieved by using a highstrength textile/plastic mixture, best quality hardware, and exchangeable wearing parts such as hip-leg connection, sliding D, and leg loops

I have been climbing for 16 years. The first 10 years I was changing my harness every year, trying to find a more comfortable/versatile harness. Since using the treeMOTION I havent found another harness that matches it for comfort, versatility and unique features. The attachment points and the ability to create your own gear loops are really useful features. There are days when I can spend up to 13 hours in the harness, Im not sure I could do this in any other harness than the treeMOTION.”
