This is a tripod designed by hunters for hunters. Combined, the seat and tripod legs weigh only 36 pounds. The stand itself can be set up in under a minute, from the time it comes off your shoulder to the time you are sitting in it. One leg of the tripod his height-adjustable, so the stand can be perfectly level even if the ground isn’t. The 10-foot height is effective in areas where the cover is low and you want to avoid sky-lighting yourself.
