This is a stand I do not have to pack in and out on private property that I can hunt. So I have it locked to a tree and just have to unlock and climb. I only get to hunt this climber twice a month due to work schedule so I wanted to show that a summit seat can be adapted to the ol man. Looking for an all day sit being comfortable is what I was after so I hope this post helps anybody that was curious about this setup. It felt great. Was very close to going the hazmore route though. Still happy with my choice.

I never sat in a hazmore to compare it to a summit seat but I definitely agree that a summit climber is bulky, but they are comfy.

Default Climber seat???

Itís comfortable no doubt but it sits too low in the stand for hunting with a longbow so it didnít work for me. The hazmore puts you higher up so I can have the 2 stand pieces closer together to clear the bottom limb to shoot.

The other thing I didnít like was the summit gets soaked in the rain so you have to sit on a wet seat. The hazmore is mesh so a quick shake and most of the water is gone.

It's sits too low. Takes up the whole platform. Makes packing up a pain. Heavy. It sucks bad. Oh and the sittin too low prevents u from using ur pockets

I hear ya buddy, but Iím the one that is gonna sit in it. So I am comfortable with the seat which is what I was after. The climber is locked to a tree on private property that I get to hunt so I do not have to worry about packing in and out. Otherwise I would admit it is very bulky. But if a hunter wants this setup, it does fit the ol man. Just trying to spread knowledge that it works if one was thinking about this setup.

I got my Summit stand back in 2003 (?) and in that year, the seat and back rest were air balloons that you blew up like for a small air mattress. I did not know this when I got this stand and figured it would not last more than a few years. Well, 2 years ago the little valve where you blew in the air started leaking under the pressure of sitting on the "bag".

I bought the Summit "foam" seat to replace to old seat. The new seat is comfortable to sit on but is heavy and bulky.

I looked at the Hazmore seat but was not sure what to use to provide a cushion for my back. For a long sit, I need something to make my back comfortable.

What do you guys that have the Hazmore seats use to protect your back while sitting?
