I am 6 foot 230 lbs. and love my lone wolf elite. It is a little heavier (20 lbs) and a little harder to hang but it is totall work the extra weight. I am very comfortable in the elite and really like the stand. It is easy to pack in a mile or more to my remote bear baits, and easy to hang. And it never squeaks or pops like my other stands. The only thing is the seat is no the most comfortable but that was an easy fix by zip tying another cusion under the stock cushion. The back pack straps that come with the stand suck I bought the carrying system cabelas sells for $40 and it works great with the elite.
