I have read many threads about these climbers and can't decide which one to get. I already have a summit bushmaster and it is light and comfy but the straps are a pain and its a little noisy in my opinion. Most important to me is how easy to use and quietness. The packing of the lone wolf is cool and is nise and light but I have heard the straps that go around the tree can be a pain. Any input before I shell out the coin would be appreciated:shade:

Lonewolf is lighter and smaller to carry. Treewalker wins every other category, and is far more comfortable. It's whatever is important to you. You can't beat either as far as quality is concerned.

I'm a lone wolf fan. I've tried quite a few different stands but am partcial to my lone wolf. Very quiet and comfortable enough for me but I feel a recliner should be very comfortable and not a tree stand.:D

Don't forget to look at the Equalizer Tree Stand! Best stand I have ever owned! I have heard Great things about the Tree Walker and Lone Wolf, but nothing beats the quietness and comfort of the Equalizer Tree Stand! Being able to level your stand as you climb is the best thing since sliced Bread! Also when you reach your climbing height the positive locking system locks the seat and foot climber to the tree! Rock Solid and makes you feel really secure! Good Luck in your choice!

Same Question

I had the same question so I bought them both. Then only advantage of the Lone wolf is that it packs very small and hangs on your back very well.

The weight between the Lone Wolf Hand climber and the Treewalker SL is the same.

TW climbs better it is a sit and climb. Lone wolf is a hump and climb, I hated the bands on the tree. They curled and hung up very easy. The TW will power over knots and sticks to the tree like glue. TW doesnt need straps to hold your feet on to climb. The TW has has a foot rest. The TW is more comfortable in the tree. The TW is a bit long when packing and will come down to almost your knees. The backpacking straps that come with it thow away and buy new ones. You cant fall out of the TW, you can out of the LW. The LW you can more easily shoot out of all sides sitting down. The TW you can't shoot all the way around sitting (I take the front bar off of mine).

In my opinion the TW is way better for me

I bought the lonewolf last year and after owning multiple climbers I wouldn't trade it for any other on the market. I climb higher in the lonewolf and feel safer than any other climber. If you want comfort go for a treelounge. I just happen to have one i'll sale. Cheap...

Tree walker biggest bang for your buck.Lite weight,ckimbs easily up or down and sticks to the tree like it was hammered on, and no extra accessories needed.

Lone Wolf all the way!! Take the seat off and replace it with a mesh seat by hazmore outdoors and you got the ultimate sit and climb stand.
