What is the most comfortable tree stand?

I'm curious to know what is the all-time most comfortable tree stand out there. I want a stand that I can stay in all day without it giving me aches or pains so I won't have to move to adjust myself so that big boy won't notice me. Any info is greatly appreciated.

Tree lounger is probably the most comfortable.
But, it is so nice it is very easy to sleep in.

I agree the tree lounge is the most comfortable but I would get it set and fall right to sleep! you might try the Summit Viper or API Grand Slam.

summit seat

i get the cheap 71 dollar climbing stands from sportsmansguide.com then use a replacement summit seat so its just as comfy as sitting in a expensive summit climber. I have 4 climber so i rarely have to hall my heavy climber out the woods since most places i hunt are well over 1 mile in but just have to quickly put on and off the seat which is made with quick release buckles.

API Alumi-Tech Mag

I have an API Alumi-Tech Magnum that I absolutely LOVE! I routinely sit all day in it, and it's as comfortable as my living room chairs.

It has a thickly padded seat, along with a pad that straps to the tree to provide comfortable back support.

I would definitely buy another one of these.

For me, that would be the Summit series of stands.

millineum, no doubt!

I've hunted out of a summit, API, Ole Man, pretty much all of them. the absolute most comfortable stand on the market is a millineum. You really can sit in one all day

the new gorilla lock on

I invested in the Gorilla Lock on with the mess seat like the millennium brand tree stands..

it is a light wieght lock on, very quiet and cheaper, with more foot room that the millennium.

just my two cents.

dont know where a comfortable one is but can tell you what not to get! the 2 seater at bass pro is the worst stand! id rather climb up a tree. the seat is only 10'' and you cant slouch or lean back. because the back rest is to close to the seat, being the seat is little. just throwing that out there so you wont have to climb up a tree.

box stand

One that I could fit a suede leather recliner and a small Tv in. I have a summit viper thats rarely used and I cant sit 45 minutes in it without having to stand up (scare off deer) and stretch out the pains.

i have hunted out of most of the stands already mentioned her by others, and really like some of their ideas, but the most comfortable climber I have ever hunted out of was a Gunslinger. I feel comfortable climbing past 40ft with a gunslinger, but it is not for bowhunting, it faces the tree. the only problem i have with the Gunslinger is that I have a tendency to fall asleep in them.

deer stands

If you are referring to lock-on type stands then you need to get a Millennium. Most comfortable stand on the market hands down. Even more so if you add the optional footrest. As far as climbers go, I can't help ya there brother.
