Looking for a simpler idea that will ultimately change the way you hunt?

I got a chance to test out the Waldrop Pacseat and this is out it performed.

As an avid hunter for nearly 4 decades, I have always strived to find the best gear to maximize my positive experiences afield. When I started deer hunting, I realized so much time was going to be spent sitting on my butt waiting on game. I sat on everything from cushions, plastic crates, buckets, logs, stumps, the ground and anything else that I could find. I found right away I also was not a fan of treestand hunting as I felt (and was) literally chained to that location up in the clouds. The hunt for the perfect seat for a long day’s hunt continued until now.

While working on other projects online for my websites, I came across an advertisement for the Waldrop Pacseat. Heading over to the website I learned that this hunting seat is unlike anything else on the market.

After quick email over to the great folks at Waldrop Pacseat, I was in touch with Timothy Shiver who is very friendly and he put together an order for me for review. Quickly the Waldrop Pacseat was at my home and ready for a thorough testing.

How was the idea of the Waldrop Pacseat even thought of? Well here is the story right from the website:

I was a typical deer hunter with usually eight to ten tree stands hung high and low, here and there, over yonder and just down the road. I became what I call a prisoner to my stands and more precisely to their location and the wind. Plus, I was getting older and not wiser and forgetting where I was hanging the darn things. I spent a lot of time hanging stands, clearing lanes, all the things we do, including “stinking up ” the woods. A lot of time, I thought, could be better spent actually hunting. I was a tree climbing fool for a lot of years – never dreaming there was another way to do it. I finally got tired of it all, mainly not being able to hunt particular stands because of the wind. I needed to be freed some kind of way.

That way turned out to be the birth of the PacSeat. It has enabled me to hunt almost anywhere I choose, at anytime I choose, and be extremely effective, without having to hang a tree stand.

The image below shows the back of the folded Waldrop Pacseat. As you can see, the heavy duty construction of this American made product is just incredible. Think how many hours went into not only the concept but the manufacturing itself. Incredible!

One of the whimsical additions to the Waldrop Pacseat is two painted tennis balls that each have one hole cut out. These can be placed on the two front feet to avoid sinking the seat into soft ground when sitting upon it. Brilliant!

Packing the Waldrop Pacseat to your hunting, camping or fishing location is a breeze. The backpack straps have a chest strap and a waist strap. It carries then just like any ordinary external frame backpack you would use for roaming in remote areas.

How comfortable is it? Well the breathable heavy duty mesh fabric keeps you cool in hot weather and certainly cuts down on weight during travel. The frame itself is extremely heavy duty and the suspension allows comfort for those long sits while hunting game.

The bottom strap is quickly adjustable for your preference of back rest tilt. Also did I mention it weighs in at a really light 4.8 pounds and is rated for 400 pounds?

A close look at the great welds on the Waldrop Pacseat. Each weld is treestand quality for a product that will never leave the ground. They spared no effort into creating a heavy duty seat.

What could make the Waldrop Pacseat even better? How about a Game Sac that mounts right to the Pacseat itself? Now the chair is a backpack too! Out of the packaging I unfolded the Game Sac and placed a yardstick for size comparison next to it. This is the front side.

This view is the backside of the Game Sac that attaches right to the Waldrop Pacseat. The top two grommets attach to pins on the Pacseat itself. The bottom strap wraps around the backrest.

Here is a close up look at both the bag drawstring and the two attachment grommets.

Attachment to the Waldrop Pacseat frame was easy. Drift out the cotter pins and slide up the assembly pins that hold the backstraps on. Add the bag and pop the cotter pins back in. It was that simple. Notice the zip ties are an added insurance against loss cotter pins on the trail. They certainly thought of everything!

Here is the Game Sac in place. It is very roomy for anything you want to put in there and secured safely with the top drawstring.

The business end of the Game Sac ready for whatever you are carrying into or out of the wilds.

Important tip: When packing heavier loads with the Game Sac in place, it is very handy that the actual seat on the Waldrop Pacseat passes through the frame to become a load shelf and the Pacseat now becomes a pack frame. Set the bottom of the Game Sac on the load shelf and it will center a heavy load higher toward your hip area. This way you can pack quartered game, hunting blinds, bait, or really anything else that a normal pack frame would be used for. That is another handy feature!

I have become a huge fan of the Waldrop Pacseat with the Game Sac attached for anywhere I am working outdoors or while in the wilds. Even backyard jobs are much easier while chillin’ out in this incredible comfortable seat.

Yes, even my wife has captured the Waldrop Pacseat for use in garden. It’s so comfortable and useful everyone wants to use it!

There are some very informative videos about the Waldrop Pacseat in actual use also on their website. Check them out and learn more about it from the makers themselves.

In summary during this testing I can certainly state the Waldrop Pacseat is now my number one choice for sitting and hauling my gear to and from the wilds. It will accompany me on my adventures both near and far this summer and into the upcoming fall hunting seasons. I highly recommend it and the company is a joy to work with. Make sure to order yours before hunting season!
