    after years of being off the market, these are finally back. They really are the cat's ass if you use more than one stand frequently.

    I know there are cheaper ways to DIY backpack straps, but for those that just want to grab their gear and go these are great.

    I have an original one on my Lone Wolf Alpha II, Ive had it since 2012 ... it is a great system to use... a few years back, XOP started to carry them .. glad to see that .... I'll try to post a pick of mine tomorrow .... makes back packing in a stand easier ... during the rut/cold weather, the whole set up with sticks, fanny pack,coat/bibs strapped on the stand, it will weigh 40 lbs .. I'll go in sometime 1.25 miles with it on my back ..... I need to get a second one, just to have it ... XOP usually sell's out on them .. it is $$ well spent ..

    I used both the original TTS and the xop TTS. I used them on my Summit Viper for my long treks in on public land. They are worth every penny and then some for the long walks. It takes 90% of the weight of the stand and placed it on your hips, rather than your shoulders and neck. It really shines during the rut when you are carrying in all the extra cold-weather gear and extras strapped to your stand. I also used it for a LW assault and LW sticks for the few years I hunted with a hang on. Worth every penny!!

    I was able to get my hands on one of these last year, really cool system. I have two sets of straps, one for my lone wolf hang on and one for my summit climber.

    Mines the original. Gotta be 8 years old and looks brand new. I leave it in trees, throw it on the ground, packed quarters on it. Things really useful and great quality. Not sure about the XOP version but I've never had any issues with their other stuff

    I also like to have the sticks flat, easier to wrap my fanny pack around and bungee down my heavy clothing

    When I used a LW hangon, I used these.....http://www.mobilehuntinggear.com/ and this video shows them They are Stick talons that allow you to unhook them from the stand while its on your back while you are climbing. Pretty slick, and worth every penny. I tried using paracord and having them dangle off my harness but would always get them tangled or they would slam into the tree or another stick.

    I outfitted a couple of my stands with the mollie system for straps and hip belt. Works well but, not as transferable as this for the hip section.
