- Also includes a six point fall arrest harness system.
- The climbing stand is made up of a cast aluminum, for a more sturdy structure which is quite durable.
- The climbing stand has a light gray matte finish, this is good due to the non-reflective nature which will prevent potential glare.
- The framing that hold the tree belt, both the bottom and the top are made up of aluminum.

The platform size is 30” X 19.5”, the weight holding ability is around the 350 pound (ca. 159 kilogram) mark, but I always recommend testing before climbing.
The actual padded seat is 14” X 12”. The folded size of their climber is 5 inched, and it weights around 17.5 pounds (7.94 kg). The tree belt can fit around a tree with the diameter of 9-19 inches.
Personally, I do not expect my tree seats to be the level of comfort requires putting me asleep, perhaps for the best. This design is focused around optimizing those tight spaces that you wouldn’t think you’d be able to pack into. Due to this, there is not much room for much else. The seat is small in size and padded, which is unusual for tree seats.
The foot stand is also small in size, but this to be expected, the option to stand is still available though, especially if you want to stand. While I read reviews, I found that if you are using this stand or archery, it is a little difficult to aim and throw. You are able to spin around with ease while aiming, which is perfect.
Also, due to the small size of the stand, it may be more difficult to move around if you are on the larger foot size.
- Extremely lightweight- due to the compact packing, I found this product to be extremely light and easy to carry, this was mainly due to its small size and backpack straps.
- Packs very compact—foldable and adjustable makes for this device extremely compact, makes for more room in the truck!
- Non-reflective finish—the non-reflective nature of the hand climber helps assist with hunting, this will also help you camouflage into your surroundings.
- Uncomfortable backpack straps – even though the backpack straps are the unique selling point for this item, they do hurt, it is to be expected.
- The foot platform may collapse if not properly installed—please, please, make sure you are educating yourself in how to properly set up this device. If not properly installed it cannot stay upright, and you could seriously injure yourself.
