The Tethrd® Phantom® is the result of 2 years of testing and research and development. Gone are the days of agonizing over “which size should I buy?” or reaching out to social media to ask more experienced saddle hunters. The patent pending shape and cut means the Phantom® fits waist sizes from 28 inches to 40 inches. We recommend the Phantom® XL for waist sizes over 36-38 inches or if you have a big ol’ butt. If you’ve got some serious junk-in-the-trunk, the XL might be just the ticket for you. A shorter, more robust hunter might also prefer the XL.

The patent pending Comfort Channels™ provide all day, unsurpassed comfort with easy to use high, medium, and low support settings. The Comfort Channels allow simple, one-handed, adjustment for leaning trees, and give you full control over where you need support most. If you like lower back support, move to the “high” Comfort Channel. If you like more support under your seat, move to the “low” Comfort Channel.

In the past hunters had to sacrifice user-friendliness, or accept more weight and bulk, to have a truly on-demand adjustable bridge. The patent pending UtiliBridge™ is the first of it’s kind constructed with Dynalite™. Our proprietary Dynalite™ material is made from ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) and is one of the strongest pound for pound fibers on the planet.  It’s stronger than steel. It floats. It’s weather resistant. It’s ultralight. It can hold a jeep. Dynalite™ is perfect for outdoor applications. With nearly 37 inches of on-the-fly adjustability, everyone can find their saddle hunting sweet spot. There’s no metal, no bulk, and it’s the strongest adjustable bridge ever made. The UtiliBridge™ checks all the boxes and has tons of upside potential. Looking for the down side? Good luck.

The Phantom has re-engineered lineman loops to make them more user friendly and even stronger than ever. The large lineman loops are easier to find and use in the dark even with gloves on your hands during the late season. Rest assured the Phantom’s lineman loops will handle anything you can throw at them.

We think the SYS Haulers are essential to keep your gear organized and efficient. The Phantom Elite kit comes with 2 special edition SYS Haulers with upgraded secure storage. There’s no limit to what you can store with your SYS Haulers. We like to run our tether and lineman belt on our left hip, and necessary accessories (like the MVP or HYS Strap) on our right hips. However, there’s no wrong way to do it. Since each SYS Hauler is modular and extremely light weight, you can use them to fit your needs.

Our Modular Versatile Panel (MVP) gives you all day comfort without sacrificing weight and bulk. It was designed to go from your “knee pits to your arm pits”. Because of the modular build, it can work with any saddle system, no matter the brand or design. The construction was beefed up quite a bit from the Recliner and designed to by bomb proof. With the MVP you get all the benefits of a 2-panel saddle system without the downsides.

Not only is the Phantom Elite saddle is 100% made in America. The accessories are made with our overseas partners to keep costs down.

If you’re looking to be a more efficient hunter and eliminate as much weight and bulk as possible, congratulations…mission accomplished.

    The tweaks made to the Phantom Elite made a great product even better! The additional forward loops bring my SYS Hauler on my left and my Rollup on my right more forward which was my ONLY issue on the standard Phantom. I am fairly new to saddle hunting but I am absolutely ADDICTED! I have been using one for two years in a row now and have taken two bucks and a doe. This year I took my best PA buck with a bow and the saddle setup without question allowed me to get into the boys living room undetected. I show him on the THIRD day of the season and he never knew I was in the world. Thanks to Tethrd, The Hunting Public, The Untamed, and Shane Simpson for putting me onto a great hunting system that taught this ‘ol dog some new trick!! DW

    6’1 280 the xl fits good i like the bags to the front of saddle easy to get to your gear.

    I really like this saddle, and the entire kit. I’m new to saddle, and have been climbing and shooting from trees since I got it. My only wish would be that tethrd would offer a pouch big enough to fit this saddle and ropes in that can attach to the predator packs molle . I tend to walk in some pretty this places, and find myself a couple miles in the woods at times. Wearing this in will be bulky, and lineman’s loops, will likely get caught on things. I like the predator pack, just wish I could connect a pouch big enough to fit saddle.

    The elite kit is the only of the three that doesn’t come with the lineman rope and tree tether. Why not? What you get is definitely worth the money, but even a fine print disclaimer that they need to be bought separately would be fine.
