Is there a good “packable” climbing stand out there? My oldest son will probably start hunting some public grounds with me and I’m looking for something that’s easy for him to tote on his back.

I have 2 Summit Vipers that are comfortable to sit in but are bulky. I will carry the Summit in and he’ll probably climb and use Summit while I use other.

He’s 13 and around 5’4” and 135ish pounds for reference. Thanks!

Probably the most packable will be an old man but if I were you I’d stick with the summit. It’s more comfortable and safer. I’m a smaller guy at 5’4” and haul my summits around. It does suck at times but I just keep pushing through it.

Man i just sold an old summit specialist. They dont make it anymore. It was basically a round tube viper sd with the rails cut off and it had a mesh seat vs the cushion. It was super light, and great bow hunting stand. Unfortunately they dont make it anymore , the closest thing they make is the summit open shot which is a narrower stand with a folding seat, its light but i dont care for it. However with the smaller frame , your son may like the open shot. Wish you had asked sooner i sold the specialist for 75 bucks which is a steal.

Lol, it’s no problem, I’m always a day late and a dollar short.
