That seat appears to be one cheek wide. I'd need a double moon, lol

Dapper, do you use this actual stand? Any thoughts on the straps? I am looking into this type of stand, just wondering how much a guy could trust them....

I've never used this one. I've used the one above it called the woodsey too and it was freaking nice. I'll be buying a couple for next year.

I'd try the Johnson 360 but I'd like to look at it first in person. I think it's a little more versatile than the woodsey too just because you can side mount it on a crooked limb but you could just rotate 90 degrees on the same limb and hang the woodsey too. The swivel feature is awesome. You never really have to stand to shoot! But, like any stand, I always upgrade the straps that come with it anyways. Although the woodsey too comes with a chain. So that's a plus.

Seat does look tiny but keep in mind that stand is 48" across.

The seat dimensions are 10" x 18". That's tiny. There's no way to make that size comfortable.

I like it. The video on FB shows the pad for the seat and it doenst look bad. Im not impressed with the weight and the cost, although theyre cheaper than the other mentioned

I never use the straps that come with these type of stands. I use a chain to help hold them in place and then buy my own good straps and double strap them to the tree. Never had an issue with any moving.

I personally have a couple of the Johnson 360 stands and i love them. Straps are a little week so i used cable come alongs to hang them. it is real nice not having to have a perfectly straight tree in order to hang it because it does adjust up and down as well as side to side to level it.

I used to hunt out of this stand for years. The bracket had a a hole to hang it on a hook screwed into the tree and I added a lag bolt in the second hole. I used the chain plus 2 ratchet straps and the stand never moved with my big butt. You won't have. Problem finding a tree to put it on.
