The stand is very hard to climb in, you have to be a slim build to use. The holes that the chain goes in, is at a weird angle and that makes it difficult to get a nice tight grip.
Once up the seat is comfortable, but getting 15'or 20' up in a tree is an adventure, and hard work!

Rated 4 out of 5 by DatForester Great so far
I just purchased this stand earlier today. Everything seemed to assemble fine. The instructions definitely aren't the best, but it doesn't take a genius to figure it out. The one issue I had (and saw in numerous reviews) were the foot straps. They are strapped awkwardly at an angle, unlike my previous stands. You also have to take off these straps to and secure the top half for backpacking. It seems like a lot of trouble. Also, the harness that was included was WAY to big for me (32" waist). Everything else is great! I will have to rig up some permanent foot straps and buy a new harness, but it's no big deal, especially for the price. It seems very durable and the seat is AMAZING. I sat suspending for a while and I can tell come bow season, I won't be moving around trying to get comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Racerraja Great value for the price
I have used the stand about a dozen times since I received it. After taking some time to figure out what straps went where and how they were supposed to be installed, I found that the stand performed very well. It is very light, is extremely quiet both while climbing and while sitting. The chain straps are very easy to adjust and very secure on the tree. There is also no obstruction to shooting from the stand.
All in all a very good price for a very good climber!
