Big Game Treestands Stealth Deluxe Ladder Stand
Great stand for the money!
This is a great stand for the money. If the seat back was rigid I would give it a 5. I added a camo painted seat back and am very pleased with the stand. It is strong and steady once installed properly.

Great tree stand esp for the price !
I was looking for a stand and looked everywhere you can't beat this stand for the price.
The only two things I have to complain about.
1. The assembly instructions could be better and the parts numbered with removable stickers. It was obvious that the instructions were written by someone who did not speak English as their first language.
2. Two more ratchet straps would have made placing it on the tree easier, safer, and faster.
That being said you can't go wrong for the price. I pre assembled it in my living room hauled it to my location with my truck and put it up all by myself. Opening day of gun season I was in it from 4 am till about noon. It was solid and pretty comfortable easy to get in and out of and I felt safe in the stand even with a little wind. I plan to buy two more if these for next year.

We like them enough to keep buying more
There are more expensive stands and there are cheaper stands out there.
We won't consider any of the cheaper stands because they lack a shooting rail that also adds a bit of protection from falls.
The more expensive ladder stands have a larger foot platform and generally have a more comfortable seat.
These are plenty comfortable enough, we also have some Big Game Warrior Deluxe stands and they have a different seat and they are comfortable enough too. We normally don't stay in a stand for longer than four hours at a time and come down and still hunt or take a siesta mid-day before going back into a stand in the afternoon for the evening, but if I am going to be up in one all day I have had my mom make some 1.5 inch memory foam cushions that we take up withe us.
This is important: Make sure to take time to place the stand so that the seat is level from side to side and angles just slightly back towards the tree. Not a lot, just a little bit. This will make it much more comfortable for long sits, having the seat not level side to side will kill your back after a few hours.
Take a garden ax (Mattock) with you to dig around to get the legs just right so that the seat is nice and comfy and the whole ladder stand is solidly supported.
Add a twenty foot piece of 1/8" nylon cord to haul guns and equipment up with.
