    I am 58 and haven't hunted from a tree stand for 15 years. I have had many tree stands over the years...climbers...ladder and hang ons. I went in looking for a hang on and ladder stand. I hunt private property but theft is still a problem where I am.

    I browsed the selection of stands and this Summit Viper SD caught my eye. I went online and did some reseach and decided to buy it.

    An hour later I was home and 20ft in the air...just that easy. It comes out of the box ready to climb and has a DVD to watch that talks about saftey.

    I found this to be very quiet and most importantly comfortable. They have done a great job designing this stand so you can sit and stand up w/o making a sound.

    I shoot a crossbow now and cocking the bow in the stand was no problem at all.

    Right now I can't find any cons to this climber. It packs nicely....easy to set up, comfortable, and climbs easily.

    I was on the hunt for a new treestand this year. I did a lot of research on several different set ups and designs. This stand caught my eye by the new dark color that blends in well with early season and the new sd. After speaking with [...] a summit rep it sounded like an awesome new stand. So i got it. I couldnt wait to take it out and climb [...] The stirups are assembled but not tight, the bungie cord is already on but you have to assemble the seat along with the cables. Not hard couple mins but i was under the impression it was ready to hunt just pull it out and go. Another thing is the weight position from the treestand on your back is very uncomfortable. I tryed for hours to modify the straps and seat so that it wouldnt be uncomfortable for me to carry just didnt work. Very bulky stand like all summits i guess its the design. Overall I will be taking this stand back and replacing it with an ol'man that I am more familar with. I just couldnt see carrying the viper to my stand and through a lot of brush without getting it caught up and working up a sweet.Im 25 and athletic this stand may be better for big men or older. You might like it but it was to bulky and very uncomfortable for me to carry even just walking around my yard.[...] Good Luck this year...

      Comments about Summit Viper SD Climbing Treestand, Realtree:

      Just got this stand yesterday and I was a little bit hesitant due to the price. Setup was a breeze. Basically just have to install four chair straps. I was surprised at how lightweight this chair is compared to my old chair (30 lbs.). I practiced on a 10 inch tree in my back yard and was able to setup and climb 20 ft in about 10 minutes after a few practice climbs. I love the front bar as it makes climbing much easier on the arms. This is a very comfortable chair for someone my size (5' 9"/185 lbs.). I know it's rated for up to 300 lbs. but may be a tight fit for anyone over 250. I noticed that it can be a little noisy while packing. I had to really tighten the straps to prevent clanging. All-in-all I'm happy so far. Will be taking it out on a hunt this weekend.

        this is my first climbing type tree stand - and it is very easy to use, but most of all, give you a great sense of security while in the tree. the instructional DVD is mediocre at best, but having the tutelage from someone with climbing experience makes using this stand a breeze.

              Comments about Summit Viper SD Climbing Treestand, Realtree:

              Lightweight but most importantly gives feeling of safety. I've been ground hunting for 30 years after almost falling out of a stand, so I'm a little nervous about stands and heights. The DVD could have been done better but it was very informative and useful for someone who doesn't like to read the instructions. This unit got me climbing and off the ground in no time. First climber for this middle age guy but it's well designed, safe and easy to use. Summit did a great job!
