Bosun's Chair is rated out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Judson from Great! I bought this to work on via ferrata installations where even the big gun harness isn't comfy enough. Hanging in the harness for hours drilling holes and pulling loose rock is brutal. This chair provides more comfort and allows me to work longer without stopping. Racking on your harness can be a bit difficult when carrying a lot, but there are some options to clip to the chair. It's easiest just to hang a 5 gallon bucket to keep tools etc organized and off your harness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alan from This chair is great! I recently went on a climbing trip to The Cirque of The Unclimbable's and brought my new Bosun's Chair. It is not only good for big walls but also for base camp! The chair not only offers rest but it also has a foam cushion in it to keep your butt warm. Definitely a good purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ian from Great for bolting I have spent hours in this chair. I mostly use it for bolting new routes or re-bolting old routes. Often I will spend 1-2 hours at a time hanging in the chair, which would be impossible in a harness. I already own 2 and going to buy a third so I always have one on hand at different climbing areas

Rated 5 out of 5 by Luc514 from light and relatively inexpensive You can make your own, but it won't be as light, comfortable or useful. It's really light, fits in my haul bag and offers a great rest when brushing routes. I attached a nylon daisy to keep the tools attached.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Andrew from Lightweight and Comfy Wall Chair Turned Misery into Comfort for belaying those long aid pitches where no ledges were available to stand on. I hope BD continues to make niche items like this for climbers approaching all different styles of climbing.
