I have the standard LW Hand Climber that I bought last year from a NJH member - works great, and really comfortable and feels safer than any other stand I've used. I started bowhunting back in 1984 with some super dangerous wooden climber with a slotted band iron strap that was a death trap (and I didn't wear harness). Had a few scares but managed to hang on! I didn't use a climber for about 25 years but with this model, no reason not to.
Thanks for the tips, had my stand come with straps, I would probably already have figured out its best to attach the pack to the stand.
No problem Jack. I love using a climber its so easy to adjust stand choice for a certain wind, if I needed a slight adjustment based off of deer movement and for public land carry in carry out, etc...
I just picked up an xop strike force which is basically the equivalent of the stand you have. So far I like it. Ive added a little bit better back pack straps instead of the ones that come with it, lw foot rests and thirdhand man stabilizer straps that are priceless. Plus they help strap in any extra gear, bags, clothes that I may bring late in the season. Im adding a universal bow holder and some paracord to the front of the platform also. Its a nice upgrade from my myles keller climber. Good luck in Ohio!!
