Timber tall makes a real light climber. I can go forever with it on my back, but it is not a comfortable as my API or Ole Man.

Nothing heavier out there either!

They are quite comfortable but get the bow hunting attachment.
I'm down to one.

About 25lbs but can't beat the comfort. I have 2 an old one and new model. The old one is a bit heavier. From what I understand treelounge is closed. The last 2 I bought I actually picked up used one for $100 & $150. One got stolen a couple years ago though.

yep they're closed. From what I've heard after the founder died the family lost interest. You can still find some used ones on Craigslist and such.

I just bought an api hi point for thick tight places. it only weighs 20 lbs (about twice that of a scoped gun), and is the easiest stand to carry long distance that I've ever owned. Its about half the price of the Summit, if price matters.

Take a look at my classified ad...these new summits are 20lbs....(about 7 lbs lighter than the original Viper) and very comfortable...easy to tote too if you pack it right...

I just picked up a Summit Goliath SD Thursday. I just got to try it today and I love it. I've never been a fan of climbers bc I had an Old Man Grand Vision when I was like 15(2000ish) and it slipped and just didnt feel sturdy at all. I'm a large fella 6'4" 325 so I opted for the larger size. Its very comfortable, I didnt sit in it but about 30 minutes but I didnt get the slightest feeling of being uncomfortable. I'm pretty weary of hieghts and it didnt bother me at all standing up and turning around in the stand.
