Tru weight, very compact, fits very well on the back and easy up the tree and to hang. Bought for Saddle use and it works as hoped it would. I wrapped it with Camo wrap and made a cushion for seat, still light and easy to use. A very good piece to the hunting puzzle. I have platforms and a L/W Assault and this is right there with them, OOAL you did well.
The quality and construction of this product is 2nd to none. One of the first things you notice about the lil ambush is the lightweight design matched with a solid quality feel. This tree stand is easy to use and set up and comes with all necessary hardware for install. Don't hesitate to purchase the Lil Ambush for your next hunting season.
I tried saddle hunting for one season, and devised that saddle hunting was not for me. The saddle seemed to aggravate lower back issues. So I was looking for a lightweight treestand that i could use as a hang and hunt setup. I settled on the lil-ambush for 2 reasons, it is USA made, and i like to support small companies. Out-on-a-limb seems like an innovative company tailoring to mobile hunters needs at a reasonable price. i knew before i purchased this that there were a couple of things i wish were different, 1; i don't like ratchet straps for hanging treestands! 2. i would have preferred a one piece design. But with some minor mods, i can change those 2-negatives.
This is a small stand, but it is comfortable, and the platform area is huntable. the platform area is where it needs to be, i can easily rotate 360 degrees to shoot from the stand.
the seat is the perfect height and size. I will probably add a thin foam pad to the seat. to add to the comfort. i have never hunted from a luxury comfort treestand, but i have used several brands of cheap steel stands and a XOP ambush, and summits & API climbing stands. this is every bit as comfortable as the steel stands, and much more comfortable than the XOP. the XOP has a big thick pad, but it is a weird position in relation to the tree. The Lil ambush shines in its weight. it is the lightest stand i have ever picked up. i did not weigh it, but it really feels light. most of the big name companies list their weights for the bare naked treestand, but you cannot hunt from the stand without a strap to attach it to a tree. the hunt weight on my XOP was over 14#, it is advertised as 11#. OOAL have made a nice mobile hunting treestand. is you are looking for a light huntable treestand, i think the lil-ambush is a good option.
