Hope it's worth the wait. Everyone notes the comfort on the Kestrel/Flex.
I would be asking for money back, cancel the order and just wait until they're in stock. Once the dispute period on your CC passes they could stiff you and you have no recourse.
I ordered my kestrel flex on july 25 aswell. First of all that's one heck of a coincidence. Two days after my order I recieved an email saying it was back ordered until Oct.11. Ridiculous I know but it did arrive on Oct. 11th and ive been using it ever since. You should probably call them or email them at the very least to see where things stand but they are a reputable company I wouldnt worry about getting stiffed.
The kestrel flex is awesome! Ive done several 4hr sits with no real discomfort and the linemans loops are super easy to find, even in the dark without a headlamp on. I'm so glad I went with aero hunter instead of tetherd.
One of the reasons I went with the kestrel in the end is the company. They make top notch arborist gear and have been for a long time. Nothing against the tethrd guys its awesome what they are doing but they just seem to be lacking in the finer details for the sake of saving a couple ounces. A saddle is already so much lighter and compact than a tree stand why make it so minimalist that you need to buy comfort add ons.
