Banded Deluxe Slough Stool
The box didn't include any instructions, so I tried to put it together based on the picture. BEWARE that the picture on the box will make you think that you're missing some parts. This picture online is accurate. That said, if it matched the box, it would be better. The box shows a loop up high just under the seat for the strap to fasten to. However, as the picture shows here, the loop is actually closer to the middle. This makes the strap pretty useless....when you pick it up to carry, the heavier seat makes it go vertical in your hands, which makes the lower bar almost smack you in the head. I recommend drilling a whole and adding a loop just under the seat to fasten the strap to so as to balance the load and allow you to carry horizontally. Other than the transport issues, the stool does it's job. The swivel is nice to have in the blind.

This seat is comfortable. The only problems I had with it was attaching the carrying strap and trying to push the stool into the mud using the cross bar along the bottom. Since it is made from 2 pieces of metal designed to fold up when you carry it I had a hard time keeping them from folding up while I put my weight on them as I pushed down on the stool. I ended up adding a bolt through each to hold them permanently out even while carrying.

is what it is
Bought this thing before duck season and used it a couple times so far...
It ain't no lazy boy, but when hunting in timber or an area requiring your feet to stay wet, this thing beats the heck out of standing for several hours.
It's easy to use, just jams in the mud. The construction seems to be pretty solid, I question the longevitiy of the seat platform itself because it's wooden. wouldn't be hard to replace though if needed. Also, this thing isn't the most stable thing ever made but that's no fault of the product; it just happens to be a glorified, adjustable, stick in the mud. All and all, this thing does exactly what it's designed to: Give your rear end a place to rest while hunting in shallow water.

Does the Job
Great for giving your feet a break when standing in the water for a few hours. It's not huge chair, but after standing for a couple hours it's nice to sit down for a bit. A larger chair would be too big to tote to the duck hole...this one is the right size/weight. Had mine for 2 seasons, no problems.
