im looking for the most comfortable blind chair..kinda like a reclinable, but packable..cost is not a option..i remember billy kept braggin on the one he had, i dont no if its the cabelas brand or what... but them things squeak..

i have the magnus one and the doublebull chair..the magnus is nice but i what somthing really comfatabale..as my fat friend would say...

Hawk makes an interesting sling chair. I'd like to sit in it to see if it would work, but the price isn't bad.


Downside? It's about 8 lbs. But my Huntmore is 10.5, and I've managed that (usually by setting it out ahead of time, though). If everything has to go in at once, I carry a much lighter chair.

Chairs of this type have become popular as camp chairs. There's a name for them which escapes me right now. Some guy's name. Like "Bob chairs" or something. Anyway, I'd look at these: Big Agnes stuff is usually top-notch. I like the Camp Chair at under 3 pounds and a lot of support and comfort. There's also a chair with a swivel, which I think is handy if the rest of the chair works. Also under 3 pounds.


My guess is that you'd have to put up with the chairs being low. Maybe Hawk or somebody else makes them taller for hunting.

did you ever try that string seat i sent you? by the way i bought another one for my lonewolf climber..
4.) crookedeye - 10/01/2017
it was all tangled and stuff...
5.) Swamp Fox - 10/01/2017
I did try it but it didn't work on the project I was originally wanting it for. I don't think it was a problem with the seat as much as with how the stand was set up. I've got plans to try it on a Gorilla with a mesh seat that's starting to rip.

You're using it on a Sit and Climb? I just have the hand climber. Always looking for ideas for that.

This sling chair is probably taller than the rest:

6.) bluecat - 10/01/2017
Wow, that is kinda pricey.
7.) crookedeye - 10/01/2017
does the girl come with it??

yes the sit and climb i think i bought it in 2003.. man does time fly..

[QUOTE=crookedeye;52032]does the girl come with it??


I was wondering that myself, LOL.

Now I think the Chair Two is taller only in the back, not the height from the ground. It would be the better chair to take a nap in. :-)

When you figure you're paying $120-150 for chairs that weigh less than 3 pounds, versus $40-150 for chairs that often go no less than seven-- and often run a lot more--- I think these things have their place.

I like some chairs I got on sale for something like $30 at Dick's or somewhere, but you have to add a premium pad like a Fat Boy to sit for more than a couple of hours. So by the time you figure that in, you might have $80-100 and five or six pounds or more in your chair, unless you're just into pain, LOL.
9.) Swamp Fox - 10/01/2017
Here's the 7.5# Millennium G100 for about $150. I've seen them listed as high as $200.


Swivels, adjustable height, individually adjustable legs with duck feet.

Downside? Not a compact package to tote.

i cant seem to find it anywhere to buy.
12.) Swamp Fox - 10/01/2017
Here you go, CE. You can thank me later. :-)

You'd better buy two before they decide to quit making them. That's what I'd do. LOL

Mine don't squeak, you prolly left yours out all winter in the snow and let it rust.

Had a chance to sit in one of these, mentioned above, and now I need to save my pennies for yet one more thing. If you have the luxury of being able to see a long distance from your blind, its low height might allow you to stay reclined or seated comfortably. In close quarters, I think it's probably too low to the ground, but not by much. I expect most times you would shoot from your knees, anyway. I'm thinking just about keeping an eye peeled for game. It seemed quiet, and yes, it is SO light. It even comes with a rocking chair option, LOL.

Very comfortable. If you have an extremely wide ass, it might be a little tight, but I think "They make a chair for that."

It's definitely an item you might try with your blind, and if it doesn't work and you don't have any other purpose for it, return it.

But less than 3 el bees? Hot damn!

Or cheap plastic cutting board material cut to size works fine for leg platforms, too ... LOL[/COLOR]
17.) bluecat - 10/02/2017
I can see those legs go deep in the mud during spring turkey season
18.) Swamp Fox - 10/03/2017
I've often carried a plywood board in with me to solve that problem. If it's wet enough, even the wide feet I call duck's feet will have a problem and need a supplement. I'd say the board is maybe 18 x 5 inches and has worked on every chair and situation I can think of. Almost as good and a lot more portable (and with the capability of shimming uneven legs) is a small plastic cutting board cut into quarters.
19.) Swamp Fox - 10/03/2017
If you have to shim with more than one piece of cutting board, tape them together with electrical tape (carry it in your blind bag) or they'll tend to slide against one another.
20.) crookedeye - 10/04/2017
i went with the hawk chair..thing looks comfy itll be good for turkey season
21.) Swamp Fox - 10/04/2017
I guess that means someone else will have to field test the 15 lb. recliner ...

Who's got an ATV? ... LOL

Let me know how you like the Hawk chair. Not sure why they had to make it in steel ... :cf:
22.) crookedeye - 10/04/2017
9lb isnt to bad ill just strap t to my back pack as long as its solid and quiet..
23.) Swamp Fox - 10/04/2017
I saw it listed at 8 lbs., so you should be golden then.

One pound to spare for an extra sub sandwich or some Mountain Dew.
24.) crookedeye - 10/21/2017
i received the hawk chair last week.. first impressions it was kinda small, about as wide as a double bull chair and with the sling style seat it was kinda hard to get out of stealthy,,
omce i put a pad in it /cusion seat , it was pretty good ..its was comfortable after the pad but i wouldnt spend 50 bucks on another one..

i might buy the one billy has the one that squeaks just to try it out
25.) Swamp Fox - 10/22/2017
Thanks for the heads-up.

Which one does Billy have?

These are the ones I've been using most when i need a light chair:


They do need a pad, the thicker the better, and you obviously can't recline. But I don't think I've ever gotten any noise out of them, and I've had them for probably six or seven years. The height is good for me and my blinds.
26.) Bob Peck - 10/23/2017
Late to the game but my excuse is it's bow season and I've been out gettin at it ...

[B][U]Cabela's Comfort Max 360 Mag Elite[/U][/B]
$150 (ouch)
Heavy as hell (23 lbs.)
Comfortable but does not recline, not a rigid/fixed back (it's a tad springy) but no recline (not sure why one would want this feature)
All 4 legs adjustable
Built-in duck feet
Adjustable arm rests that get completely out of the way if you want
Swivels 360 (silently on delrin bushings)
Carry strap needs to be tucked away to prevent feet and/or bow from getting entangled
Plenty wide enough for large butts

27.) Swamp Fox - 03/13/2020
This chair at 8 pounds shows some promise, and I'll hold off on some snarky comments for a little while. That should make everyone happy, LOL.

28.) bluecat - 03/13/2020
I'm done with heavy chairs. With all the weight from blind, chair, bow, decoys, pack etc. It is not worth it. I took your advice Swampy ("hey you mean you guys talk about hunting ?") and carry a foam pad that fits over that triangular seat. My butt doesn't fall asleep and it is as comfy as the bigger chairs.
