I have a Summit climber and I would rather hang my back pack then have to share valuable foot space with it. Rather then screw hangers in the tree I would rather keep everything simple and on my stand. Thought about drilling and securing hooks from the stand, but not sure thats the best idea. Whatcha ya'll got, thanks in advance.
Fail to plan, plan to fail.......
Before doing this I would wear my turkey vest when gun hunting and carry everything that way. I did it like this for probably 10 years and the only reason I went to a backpack was so I could keep more clothing in it, carry a game cam in/out and not get so hot with that extra layer. I can also carry a little bit more without having pockets bulging from all angles. And before the suggestion comes...I've gone through everything several times and only take what I know I'm gonna use/need.
If you hang it off one side just be careful because the weight could cause the stand to tip if you lean that direction. I always use a ratchet strap on my top half so it can't tip sideways.
Happiness is a belt fed weapon!
The 2nd way is : go to wal mart in the arts and craft section, look for both sided Velcro tape ( this costs $1.89 for 4 feet ). Next, go to wal marts hunting section and find the camo fanny bags they sell ( this costs $4.99 ). When you get home, cut the straps off the fanny pack. At the ends of the fanny pack on both sides there are loops made, cut velcro to length to strap the fanny pack to the side of your climber. Total costs is about $7.00, and you can bring just about anything in this fanny pack you can put into your back pack except a jacket. When i take jacket up with me i'll hang it on the back of my climber once i get up, never had any issues this way.
Hope this helps out, shoot straight.
I have been nothing but pleased. This fanny pack has a top strap that you can wrap around the arm rest or front bar of your climber, and because the top of the pack is supported by a frame rod, you can hang it with the top open so everything is within easy reach.
I put a few other items in shirt or pants pocket when I set up.
This is very cool, just a little too pricey for just after the holidays. Thanks though
I did that with mine at first, and it was more convenient to have everything right there in front of me, but I had problems with it hanging too low and it was always in the way of my knees. Since I also have a footrest on my Summit this was a problem as the bag made it unusable.
I had you pissed off at hello.
Thats what I have.
It has about 4-5 hooks.

Yeah I know it is a bit pricey. I actually bought mine off Archery talk classified ads. I found one in there for $85. Keep your eyes open in there and you can find deals.
Well, let's see… First off, it has a shoulder strap system to evenly disperse weight acrossyour torso. Secondly, it has a frame rod which allows you to hang it while open. It also has multiple pockets for different items. And last but not least, it is made with very high-quality components.
You can buy them at walmart. Wrap the sticky felt stuff around it.
Another good accessory to have is a hook for a carpenter’s tool belt. You can clip it on the cable for the tree stand and hang your quiver off it. Or, other light gear.
I generally take a range finder, tool hook for quiver, and a carabineer on a piece of sort line to hold my bow. Haul line is wrapped around the foot of the stand, lineman’s belt around the stand arms. A bottle of water if its real hot. Thermocell is clipped to my belt.
