10 Treestand Safety Tips
Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 21
Rated 4 out of 5 by Sargent43 Great for the money
While I have not hunted out of a ton of different stands, this one seems quite sturdy even for a big guy. I weigh in at 250 and it holds me just fine. The seat is pretty comfortable even after sitting for a couple hours. The harness is just a black nylon thing and not something I would keep. Overall for the money it is a great entry level stand. Easy to climb and quiet.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Rylan17 Not as good as expected
When I bought this treestand a few years ago. I thought it was going to be the best thing. However, the seat made it a very uncomfortable time for me. There was an instance where I was sitting in it and one of the buckles for the seat had slipped off and I fell down onto the foot platform. Other than that big issue, it is light and durable. But due to the seat, I will not use it anymore. I've used it for 3 years now and climbed quite a few trees.

Rated 3 out of 5 by NJfireguy Good, but a couple flaws
Stand is light, making it easy to carry and climb. Folds flat which aids in ease of transport, but adds time to set up. Lining up the holes for the screw can be challenging in the dark. Make extra time for assembly before hunt. Once assembled, it goes up the tree with ease.
I have two complaints. The first of which is about the poorly assembled accessory pouch. The pouch tore off the stand on my second use when exiting my stand site. At the time all the straps, two screws and my pull rope were inside. Luckily I found it the next day before it was fully covered with snow! Secondly I feel two ratchet straps should be included. The strap supplied for the foot platform doesn't tighten well.

This climber is exactly what I expected. It is really easy to carry in and out of the field. It feels like a feather compared to other climbers I have used in the past.
