    Bought an Xstand last year & thought it'd be perfect. It is rock solid & quiet. Then I tried to turn around on that platform with my bow & look behind me.(Not so much) Gun maybe, but not for me with vertical bow & size 12 insulated rubber boots on.

    Bingo!

    That joker was like a mountain goat in blue jeans and cowboy boots.

    Lol, its funny how all us midwestern guys, including myself, get so serious about our camo. Then there are guys like your guide, Dan Infalt, The Hunting Public gang, etc. that just kill stuff in street clothes.

    The seat on it looks great. The seat on my lone wolf assault 2 worse than sitting in a church pew on sundays

    I prefer a less comfortable seat, keeps you alert.

    The seat is definitely comfortable. & It'll get some use during gun season when I'm not as worried about "him" sneaking in 20 yds behind me.

    I’m a republican I like a big comfy seat. A less comfortable seat just makes me jealous and want to raise taxes on those with the comfy seats. Lol.
    You need a comfy seat and come over to my side trigger. Lol

    I'm a socialist, and have no need for bourgeois "comfort." Comfort saps revolutionary energy, and turns working men into softie snowflakes. ;)

    On the other hand, do not eat any Sativa. Being it makes you work minded, you would be walking in circles in your stand! Have to keep with Indica to SLOWWWW things down.

    An all-day sit is hard for me, I need a comfortable seat, food, my phone provides the Kindle app so I can read a good book , I may listen to the satellite radio or watch a little Netflix also.

    I need to be comfortable and confident that deer are around and I'm in the right spot. Food and snacks plus water to drink are a must. I like to be outside anyways so that helps make staying on the stand easier.
