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.

    Comments about West Marine Premium Bosun's Chair:

    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.

      Comments about West Marine Premium Bosun's Chair:

      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.

          Spent an hour 50' aloft, safe and comfortable.

              Comments about West Marine Premium Bosun's Chair:

              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.

                  Comments about West Marine Premium Bosun's Chair:

                  Put to use the day after I received it. Quality construction is evident, and design is inherently safe. Sent my girlfriend up the mast to rerun a halyard. She had a ball. The hardest part was finding someone to handle the backup line.

                  It is designed for the user to slip into, and is impossible to fall out of. Much safer design than the simple "swing" chairs. The eyes for tying on the halyards are clearly indicated with purple material.

                  Chair is well made. It was delivered in perfect condition in a timely fashion. I expect it to serve well for many years. I am happy with my purchase.
