Rated 5 out of 5 by 1buckdown2 Great Stand
I get a kick out of reading the different reviews on things after I have purchased them and hunted from them. I am a avid hunter an hunt all over the country, I have several different climbing stands and they are all real nice to hunt out of. Bottom line is you get what you pay for. Cheap stands are cheap stands. But this stand is different,. I bought this stand after a Rut hunt in Kentucky. My buddy brought one, so I used it and sat all day, I have never sat in anything more comfortable. It is very quiet, secure and easy to use. The negative comments on the zipper problems, feel like your gonna fall out, etc., are ridiculous. Basic knowledge on how to set up a climbing stand will fix all these problems. Trust me you will be very happy with this stand .

Rated 5 out of 5 by talsdad Great stand for the money
Have hunted from this stand four times now and have actually been up and down trees 6x. Very happy with the performance and features of the stand. Takes a few times to get comfortable with packing it up as small as possible but it packs perfectly flat and very comfortable. Getting the "chains" into the tubes can be a bit difficult on occasion but requires just a minute of extra fiddling. The stand climbs well is very secure and is extremely comfortable. I've seen a few complaints about the zipper but the backrest isn't meant to support the seat and must be attached with some slack in it.
All in all a great stand for the price and would not hesitate to buy again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Coop76 Worst Treestand Ever!!
This is by far the worst treestand I have ever been in. The Gorilla Grip pivoting arms on both the platform and seat parts are the worst design I have ever seen on anything ever made. They make it a pain to get on the tree as well as climbing.

Stand is very comfortable. Seat is adjustable and when adjusted properly there is no reason to squirm around to remain sitting comfortably for hours. The platform is wide enough for adaquate position changes and on all but the narrowest of trees there is enough space between the armrests to remain comfortable for the longest hunts
Yes it is, the more you sit in it, the more comfortable it gets. The first time out I didn't think the seat was that comfy, but subsequent times have been much better. I actually shot a deer sitting in the corner of the front and side so I could shoot right handed, and it was totally stable.
If you could strap a lazyboy up in a tree, they would run neck and neck in comfort. The seat is adjustable in height and you can slide it back closer to the tree when you stand up. I am 6'1 and # 225. It's great.
