Re: climber stands

If you plan on using it anytime during the cold season, go with the Goliath--lot more room when you put on the extra clothing for no more weight. Then go online for a "Hazmore" mesh seat for the early season and up to when it gets cold. Cuts 3 pounds off the weight and almost as comfortable.
If you are a fan of all day hunts, the foot rest really helps keeping the legs fresh and allows you to adjust positions. Then last, but not least, get a Molle belt or the Gameplan Treestand Transport System which makes hauling it deep much easier.

Wishing I was at camp!

Re: climber stands

I love my Lonewolf handclimber but if you are new to climbers you probably won't like it. I DESPISE front rails for archery but a lot of folks love them.

Re: climber stands

I use a Viper in archery season. You have to stand to shoot because of the front rail, so if you are sitting you need to see the deer first so you can stand without being detected. I'm always looking for something else, but keep using the Viper. I put a hazemore net seat on mine too. Good luck!

Re: climber stands

I weigh 270 and I swear by my Summit Goliath with upgraded seat and carry straps. Not only is it the highest weight rating but more importantly to me its wider . The only drawback is the width when carrying it through tight brush .

If I could hunt half as much as my son wants to an twice as much as my wife allows I will be happy
