    Question Lightest Fixed/ hang-on treestand?

    I already got a climber but want a fixed/ hang-on treestand so I can hang to those not so straight trees. I want the lightest, compact, easiest to hang treestand. I know Lone wolf has one for 11lbs, Chippewa wedge loc super ghost is 10lbs. Another is the Windwalker that is 7lbs. Those are the 3 I can find that is the lightest fixed treestand. What other company makes a light fixed treestand?

    Ol'Man Aluminum Roost Model COM-19 weighs 15.5 lbs not sure if that fits you criteria. Their is another company that is making composite stands that are light but I cant remember their name.

    Resin True Quiet Treestand is the name of the one I was thinking about and it weighs 14.5 lbs and looks very comfy here is the link to their site

    I wouldn't get too hung up on only weight. Most of the ones under 10lb are so small that my size 12's can't move around on them. Lone wolf alpha is a great stand for run and gun hunting. Great size, quiet, and pretty light. A breeze to hang it too. I will say that the new Muddy bloodsport has me intrigued. Haven't seen one in person, but am planning on checking them out.

    Summit also make a light alumninum hang-on stand. And it might be the cheapest of the viable candidates you are looking at. I agree that I wouldn't go with the lightest stand possible because the platform would be too small.

    Aluminum built stands that weigh 10 to 15 lbs seem to have a pretty good platform size to weight ratio for me.

    I am 5'6" and about 160 and that stand will keep you very aware of where your feet are I can tell you that. I have the older Assault also and for the extra 3 lbs it is MUCH more comfortable.

    Me too. That little Gorilla is my favorite stand.......as a matter of fact it is the only lock-on I own that I same-day hunt in. All of my others get hung and left for long periods, the Gorilla is a perfect stand for mobility. Easy in, easy up, no creaks/pops, and "big enough" for me at 6'2", 215 lbs.

    Once you have sat in the Millennium M100 stand you will have only one problem with the treestand ....... staying awake. There is nothing that is as durable or comfortable as this. When my hunters are in camp they all "fight" over the stands that have them. I own 5 of them for the business and we have about 10 of various other brands. But none compare to the all day comfort of the millennium. It has back pack straps and carries easy as well. I never cared about the weight so it must not be an issue. In other words Its never bothered me when packing in.

    The old Loggy Bayou cheap seats are under 5lbs but are kinda small. I have a couple old API AlumiLocks and they are only about 6 lbs.

    The best bang for the buck is and will continue to be the LW. A one piece CAST platform cannot be beat for silence and weight savings.
    Made in the USA is a nice bonus as well.
    I cannot convince myself to buy a muddy stand. For a few bucks more, I am deadly silent up and down a tree with a set of muddy sticks and a LW hang on.

    Best combo on the market imho.

    The little gorilla stand everyone is talking about is the Gorilla silverback Scout Hx. I got one this year and it weighs in at 10 pounds with belts and all attached. It even allows you to stack and carry Lone Wolf sticks like they engineered for it!?!?! with 4 sticks MOLLE shoulder straps and belt buckled down adn ready to go - 22 pounds, with 5 steps just under 25 pounds. With MOLLE straps......... feels like nothing. BTW 100.00 less than Lone Wolf.... $129.00 on their website.

    Loc on makes or at least did make a couple stands that are pretty light the loc on limit weighs 8lbs and has a 17"x26" platform, http://www.locontreestandsllc.com/limit.php Another great stand is the Myles Keller Pro Hunter by bear river, I have two of them but they don't make them anymore but if you could find one their like gold they weigh 10lbs with a foot rest and have a platform about the size of a lone wolf alpha but they are a lot more comfortable and they use a receiver for easier hanging and take it from me I have either had or have some of the "best" stands on the market and this by far beats them all. As mentioned above Loggy used to make a few really lights stands as well as gorilla.

    X2 !!! I have one of these cheap seats and love it. The thing can't weigh but 4 lbs !! Matter of fact just hung it in a tree this morning. It's a great stand if you have ruff terrian or a long ways to walk. You can't beat it! I would like to find a couple more even though they are on the small side. I also love the old Loc-On LEM stands but they are a tad bit heavier.
