I wouldn't last 15 mintues in that. Looks horribly uncomfortable. And you can't take a nap in it.

I don't have one BUT man it sure looks comfortable and a heck of a lot EASIER to haul into the woods, when compared to the ones I been dealing with...
I wish I would have seen it sooner.. I'm sure it's a lot lighter then the last couple Climbers I purchsed this year, 1 for Phillip and 1 for myself... :-(

i agree with both of yalls comments.

i think i would like how light weight and easy to haul it would be. i watched their video on positions you could shoot from and it looked like you could have alot of diff shots. i wonder how long it takes you to get up a tree with one of those things.

but like tizzy said it also looks like it would be uncomfortable if you hunted out of it for any period of time.

What about extra gear?? How you gonna hang there with a backpack on your back?? I guess you could take it off and hang it on the tree.....but then it gets in your way when you're trying to shoot.Doesn't look safe, either. I don't think relying on straps and buckles to hold all your bodyweight for long stretches of time is a good thing.....safty harness or not.

i agree with the extra gear.. it looks like a good idea for about the first 10 minuts lol. Then i would see myself wanting to just sit down. It seems very versatile for sure with many shots but i dont think i would like it.. but inatizzy, isnt a trees stand pretty much just straps and buckles? or do you not hunt from a stand?

They are, but the weight is being distributed. With that thing, you're hanging from the straps themselves.

Screw in steps. It's a product that was not very well thought out. Idiots will buy it, though. Some will probably die.
