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.

    Spent an hour 50' aloft, safe and comfortable.
    I'm a solid 225lbs, and fit just fine.

        Comments about West Marine Premium Bosuns 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...

          Comments about West Marine Premium Bosuns Chair:

          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.

            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.

              The bosun chair is easy to fit and use. It is comfortable enought o stay aloft several hours if needed.

                Comments about West Marine Premium Bosuns Chair:

                We had to replace the windex atop the 45-foot-high mast of our 1979 30' Hunter. The bosun's chair was easy to understand and easy to use. It's a three-person job, though, including the person in the chair, because you really should have two halyards on the chair and two people winching.

                  Been using the mountaineering climbing harness for 10+ years for rigging inspections and emergency repairs. The padded seat is great for hanging aloft for awhile while installing nav lights, wind vanes, antennas and such. Still keeping the climbing harness for one-man operations.

                    Sturdy construction can be relied upon should repairs be needed up the mast.
