Ol' Man Multivision Climber Tree Stands

Tree Stands Manufacturer: Ol' Man
Ol' Man Model: Multivision Climber
Review Category: Tree Stands

Purchase: Tree Stands I bought this stand from a seller on ebay. I think I paid around $180 for it delivered, which is a great price for this stand. Cabelas sells it for $220 plus shipping, so I did pretty good! I bought this as an upgrade to my existing climber which was a Hunter's View Hawk.

Things I like about the Ol' Man Multivision Climber Tree Stands: My hunting buddy said that Ol'Man makes the best stands on the market. After seeing his, I was not sure if I would like the net seat, until I sat in it once. It is surprising how comfortable that net seat can be! Plus, Ol'Man sells an add-on padded seat for about $20 for those all-day sits. I like everything about this stand. It has a padded rest for the front of the stand which can be installed one way as a foot rest, or flipped up 180 degrees and used as a gun rest. Or you can remove it all together and have an open front, perfect for bowhunting. I do not even have to stand up to shoot out of the front of this stand. Another benefit is the whole thing fits together nicely and comes with pack straps so that you can carry it on your back. Plus it came with an awesome Full Body Harness and Lineman's Belt. I read that the harness is worth $60 alone!

What I don't like about the Ol' Man Multivision Climber: Three things that I do not like about the stand. 1. Weighing approximately 25 pounds, it is a little bulky for carrying on long hikes. Fortunately, one place that I hunt I only have to walk a couple hundred yards to my "honey hole". 2. I did not get the "Grand" model which is another $20 or so. I wish that I would have, though. Max. capacity on mine is 250 pounds. I am about 220 plus gear. I wish I would have spent the extra $20 and got the Grand which has a capacity of 350 pounds. 3. Cost. At normal price, this stand runs about $250 delivered.

Tree Stands Multivision Climber quality: The NEW Ol'Man Spreader Arms allow more room for the hunter when climbing smaller diameter trees. This stand is easy and quiet to attach to the tree and quiet to climb with. "The Multi-Vision is constructed of all welded steel tubing. The steel mesh platform provides a durable surface. It will climb trees from 8 to 20." (from Ol'Man website). The standing platform is 18" X 32".

Multivision Climber summary: Safety and comfort are the main characteristics we look for when choosing a treestand. I feel safe when using this stand and wearing the safety harness that was included with the unit. I am comfortable in the stand which allows me to sit longer and move around less. 5 stars for the Ol'Man Multi-Vision and hats off to my buddy who turned me into a believer!
