When looking to buy the best climbing tree stand it’s easy to get confused with all the options on the market.
The best climbing tree stands are all lightweight enough to carry them around with you on a hunt. A good climbing tree stand weight for portability is normally anywhere from 10 to 20 lbs.

You also want the climbing tree stand to be comfortable. There’s nothing worse than being sat in a tree for long periods with a chair that is too small, not enough room for your feet, or nowhere to keep your bag.
What’s even worse is if, when you go to take your shot, you’re so cramped that you struggle to stand up, or you make a noise by hitting the chair or the bag. This is more common than you’d think.

Here’s a couple of my favourite climbing tree stands:
This tree stand is quiet and easy to move around. It’s constructed with a dead metallic dampening tube to keep the noise minimal.
It also comes with QuickDraw RapidClimb stirrups, as well as a full body harness. It has a padded seat for comfort and has plenty of space for your bags.
This tree stand is 18 inches long by 12 inches wide. It’s a good enough space for mobility up high, and durable enough to last for a number of seasons. This light frame contributes to its light 20 lb weight, meaning it’s easy to lug it around for a long day hunting.
