Product Description

Full padded back keeps you upright and supported for comfort. The seat’s 3/4" wood core and high-density closed cell foam keeps load straps from constricting around your waist. Load lifting loop straps, made from tubular nylon webbing, are color-contrasted for easily identifiable tie-in points with contrasting critical seam stitching for easy inspection. Load-bearing webbing is one continuous length for added strength. Multi-pocket detachable tool bag. Maximum working load of 220lbs.

        I felt very secure and safe if the chair as I was hoisted up the mast. The ride up the mast was very stable and comfortable.

            I had older bosun's chair that needed replacing. I purchased this with goal of finding a chair that was solid and offered more stability and security while in use. This is a very solid product and has made rigging work less stressful.

              My husband and I bought this bosun chair so that I could replace our faulty radar scanner. I found it to be very comfortable and felt quite secure while aloft. There is a detacable pocket for tools and such. I would buy this again.

                Having been to the top of many masts in several different kinds of climbing apparati, this WM brand bosuns chair is the best. It is obviously very well made, good fit adjustments and has duplicate safety features so you feel secure and comfortable working aloft. The backrest and seat are comfortable enough to be able to pay attention to what you're working on, and not have to readjust yourself while up in the air. Good location of attachment points for tools and pockets.

                  The bosun chair is large and comfortable. Unlike my previous West Marine chair which basically hung you by your sack.

                        We used this product as a lightweight hunting tree stand. Worked great. Felt secure. My only issue was the metal waist buckle. It would often pivot sideways or the strap would get twisted in it. I would much rather see a standard climbing harness buckle that allowed you to tighten at will, and then double back for safety. It worked though...

                          Was easy to use and incredibly comfortable. I felt like I was in a good lawn chair. I have short legs and it didn't feel like the chair was cutting into them. I also felt very secure so no sacrifice on safety.
