I currently use a LW hand climber,,,,, but the most comfortable stand I ever sat in that folds flat but it weighed 26lbs (steel version) was a Ole Man Multi vision with the leg rest on,, I could lay back with my feet stretched out and nap in that one..

That was my first ever climbing stand. It was heavy, but it's comfort, as you say, is un-rivaled even to this day. I killed many of deer out of it and the though of being uncomfortable never crossed my mind.

I still think the LW could be lightyears more comfortable if they'd just make the seat portion about 3" longer so that my lower back can get away from the tree a bit and allow more of my legs to be on the seat.

I still have my ole man original version with the round cable ends,, remember trying to line those holes up for the pin? I also have the gorilla version which is close but didn't get the cigar,,,, ole man is back in business now I hear..


I agree about the LW seat too close to tree someone said it made you sit correct ergonomically and was good for your back I think it makes you lean forward with your upper chest and shoulders too much.,. seriously though why doesn't someone who works in a machine shop make a after market mod for that so the seat can be two more inches from tree? Then LW would be like Huh what's that!!!

Since 1989---tree lounge----It is heavy,,
Comfort thru the roof---safety plus (cant remember the last time it slipped)---- Not too bad to haul with the hip belt arrangement. I have found a perfect way to get to point B without sweating like a bull-----go slower!! works every time

Lone wolf for me, I can sit it dark to dark. Not the most comfortable but very do-able.

XX3 On the TreeWalker


Best climbing stand I ever had, stable and strong, goes up the tree in no time.

And really comfortable.

100% treewalker for me. I got a lone wolf hand climber. I am 6'2" and 240 pounds. It is a little small for me. I like the Treewalker the best.

I love my Summit Open Shot for bowhunting. Super light to pack in and out and very comfortable to sit in.

I am a TreeWalker fan too!!! They are very stable and comfortable stands. They grip a tree extremely well and that makes climbing with them easy. Also, the TreeWalker is not too heavy. And the TreeWalker is Made in USA (Tennessee).

One more thing, the front bar is removable for Bow Hunting, that makes the TreeWalker very versatile. I have the ProMag XL and I am very happy with it.

Personally don't care for Lone Wolf, bought one at Cloverdale Nationals the new wider sit/climb when they 1st came out, hunted out of it 3-4 times and traded it for a long bow.. uncomfortable and when climbing my knees were rubbing the tree.. Summit may be a bit bulkier but they are light years ahead of lone wolf in comfort.. with a set of 3rd hand tree straps on my Summit Titan it locks on the tree and will not move and is easy to shoot recurve from if you practice from it.

I had bought a Assault Lone Wolfe Hand Climber Combo then happened to try out a friends Tree Walker. The Lone Wolfe package is now for sale I loved the Tree Walker so much. Their customer service in my opinion is not good since I had no luck getting them to return a call after initial purchase but the climber is one of the best.
