Default Anybody ever used/own one of these.

Does anyone own or have used either one of these chairs? I sat in the one from cabelas for about 10 seconds last season, and I liked it, but I know that once you get a chair in the field you notice little noises and other issues that you just don't notice back at camp. I'm leaning towards the bass pro model because I like the arm rests and I have a bass pro about 10 minutes away. The cabelas chair I would have to order online and pay for shipping. I've been fooled before. I wanted to get my dad a great hunting chair (he broke his back about 10 years ago and it still hurts him sometimes) so I spent several weeks researching chairs. After reading tons of great reviews, I decided to buy him a huntmore 360 at $199. He sat in it at the house and loved it, but once he got to the blind it was uncomfortable and made a few noises. Now he doesn't even use it.

Honest reviews are golden...chairs always seem comfortable until you sit in them for a few hours.

^^^^ This x1000. I'm in the 265-270lb range, and those cheap little hunting chairs get real uncomfortable after about the first hour. My ladder stand has the same type of mesh seating that these chairs have, and it is very comfortable. I also paid about twice what a standard ladder stand cost. I'd pay $300 if I could find a really good, QUIET, comfortable chair.

So you've actually used one on a hunt? Is it quiet, or did it make the little sqeaks that alot of chairs do when you adjust in the seat alittle?

My wife ordered me a cheap one from Cheaper than Dirt and it works but sure would like to upgrade to one that is comfortable.

Gonna send this to the top a few more times before I pull the trigger on the cabella's chair. The bass pro chair is sold out online and in the stores.

I got one of these from Academy for $40. Sat in it at the house for hours with no issue. Shot out of the pop up in the backyard and it works fine so far. I'm a big guy 6'5" donut shy of #300 and it feels solid

Cant bring myself to spend a bunch on blind chairs.

I have used an old office chair, with no arms. Worked fine and free.

I have also used an old 100% wooden dinning room table, worked fine and free.

This year in my new blind I am going with the tripod chair with the back. Seems to be very comfortable, for how long during a sit, time will tell. I do like the ability to recline in the blind which I will miss with the tripod chair.
