I have a Lone Wolf Assault Hand Climber and love everything about it - except for the seat. During all-day sits it is extremely uncomfortable, and even for shorter sits it leaves a lot to be desired.

Has anyone had any success modifying the seat to make it more comfortable?

The best modification I've have found was going to a lone wolf assault hang on and sticks. Partly for the uncomfortable seat and being way more versatile a hunting system. Before I made the switch I bought a hunt comfort gel seat cushion which helped tremendously.

Not sure if they make one for the Assault, but I put a Silent Seat on a Sit and Climb and it was great.

XOP makes a nice padded seat that will fit LW hang-ons. Not sure about the climbers.

I hated the seat too. I'm not a heavyweight so I figured I could add a piece of 3/4 plywood to lengthen it and secure it with big zip ties. Adding 2 1/2 inches to it made a huge difference. I always pack a foam pad for whatever stand I'm in and with the added length and foam pad it's way more comfortable.

Scrappy, the Hunt Comfort seat looks interesting. I'll probably get one to try. A hang on and sticks will not work for my style of hunting. I appreciate the tip on the Hunt Comfort seat.
