Default Affordable sled harness

I bought a sled for myself for Winter Solstice holiday, and I never used it because like much of my summer attire, it's strapless.

But no more. I just got this harness online and it works well and won't fall apart and it was under 18 bucks WITH UPS shipping.

Just lettin' folks know.

Now to get back out in this heat and running with the thing more...

Ken,

Great lookin' out, but as a lady, I think there are a couple considerations that the Army surplus model seems to keep in mind...

That deer drag looks like it's really pissing the deer off.
Or is that the point?

There's another product called "the Dead Sled". Also making no points with the deer, but rednecks everywhere laugh their asses off...

just buy some tubular webbing and make 2 big loops with a common connection point. then you can do just about anything with them - loop them over the shoulders, cross them over the chest (for the non-women), hold them in a million different ways, etc. and you'll spend about $5.

I'm looking around at my local stores and I am having trouble finding this in a form that would be appropriate for use as described here. Any suggestions about where to look?

I should probably do something like this... I'm a cheapskate, so I currently just use a length of rope tied to a dip belt that I already owned... other end of the rope tied around a car tyre/wheel wherein the plate(s) sit.

it's not comfy, but when I'm hauling it around the backyard that's the least of my concerns.

An outdoors oriented store would be my first place to look. If they sell rock climbing gear they'll have webbing by the spool and it'll be about 50 per foot. Check mountain bike and hiking stores too.

Oh, and military surplus, they're almost guaranteed to have spools upon spools of webbing.
