I've been using an old pack frame and attached it to my Summit climber using bungee cords. Works OK, but nowhere near ideal. Just can't get it consistent and can be noisy unhooking it from the climber. This looks like a great piece of merchandise. Hmm. I've got some funds left in the hunting budget and the wife if going out of town for a few days. Perfect timing.

I've been contemplating buying a molle strap, belt and frame to try with a stand.

You can buy another pack of 8 buckles if u have another stand and if u want to leave the stand in the woods unhook the harnesss and rehook it to your extra stand. If u have a summit make sure your buckles are placed exactly where the ones in the pic are placed. I went through 3yrs and 5 harnesses before I realized I was putting it on wrong and putting to much stress on the waist pad and ripping it in the back. No it works flawlessly.

I have been using this back-pack frame for nearly 30 years. Weighs nearly nothing. I use nylon cord to tie stuff to it.

I have a buddy near a BPS. We may get a few for the group.

I like the detatch option.

It looks great and looks very comfortable. I see two things I don't like personally. 1) as 102 said, my back sweats like a mule, 2) that's a little too much plastic for me (buckles). If there is a chance for stuff clanging around, I will be the first to do it. Several years ago, I cut as much of that stuff out as I can. I do put tape on all my plastic stiff to silence a little, which I guess I could do for all 8 buckles \:\) . Would be great for my hour hikes in LBL for sure! There are times and places for just about everything

Do you have previous experience with Game Plan gear? The stitching on their ger tends to be very weak. Their gear is also very heavy for what it is.

As far as the sweat issue, its no different than using any other backpack. I do not use scent killer spray very much, but backpack and straps are one piece of gear that I do use it (spray) on regularly. I also leave my backpack outside quite a bit during the season.
