Summit Viper here too.

My hang-on stands are not as comfortable. Agreed they open up more options for trees.

I hunt mostly in the southern US and always use a climbing stand. Very rarely have I found an area where I could not find a suitable tree to climb. I use the Summit Viper as well. Great lightweight stand that is quiet and comfortable.

I hunt in IL, and use a Summit Cobra SD, which I think was made around 2000. It works awesome - the only thing that would make it better is a little more seat room. I do have to go in and scout out trees and spots before my hunts if I am going out before dawn, otherwise I spend too much time looking for a spot and making too much noise. For afternoon hunts, it's absolutely perfect.

I like that I can also attach all my gear to the back of the stand and use it like a frame backpack.

I have also fabricated my own version of a Sherpa cart wheel bracket, so it can double as a game or gear cart, and made a bike attachment, so when I go out to anywhere there are roads or decent paths for bikes, I can go further in and not sweat as much as when carrying the stand on my back.

Oh, and one other thing I just figured out this year is that I can wedge the seat into the foot platform and make a chair out of the stand too - now, if I can't find the right tree, or decide to ground hunt, I'm all set in one!

I don't regularly use tree stands but have used them before. This is good safety advice.

I've had a Summit for over 13 years, and my dad continues to use his. These are hands down the best climbing stands out there.

Summit Viper. Most comfortable I've found and no trouble to pack in and out.
