I just started using one this season. I got the one thats reversible between camo n orange. I'll never wear a damn harness like the ones that come with a stand again. You can't even tell you have this one on. It just feels like another shirt

OP...

if you havn't bought one yet, look at some of 'Ol Man Treestands products. i have a grand multivision and am very pleased with it. you can cahnge the rail on it from a shooting rail to a footrest and they also give you just a flat rail. in fact, i think you can even use it open ended. i got the big man edition (grand) i think it's 350lbs rated and is 3 inches wider than the standard version. (i'm 6'3" and 250) very comfy. the upper arms curve out to give more room when seated. the most unsafe thing about it is that i keep wanting to take a nap in it. very, very quiet climbing and when in position. (i've never heard a squeek) super stable once you get mounted. you can also sit facing the tree or away from it. i've used the tree facing option in places where there was little cover and just used the trunk of the tree to conceal myself. i was skeptical of the "seat" at first as it is just a netting material slung around the main bars, but found it to be more accomodating that other stands i've been in.

now for the bad news...this puppy is kinda heavy. if you are tromping more than 1/4 mile to your stand site it gets heavy. on the plus side...there is an aluminum version availible now that should be substantially less weight. it's capacity is a little lower, but should do fine for you & your gear. 250lbs. everyone that i haev ever let use it is very impressed and likes it better than whatever stand they currently have.

here's a link: http://www.olmanoutdoors.com/aluminum_multivision.htm

whatever you end up with...be safe, and be ethical. lots of "bad" hunters out there give the rest of us a crummy reputation. most of all--have fun!! that's what it's about afterall.

I want, no need one of those. Do the windows slide? I've looked at the loggy bayou, it's nice as well.

Thanks
