Pretty cool

    Bought it for the daughter, sturdy with a wood core seat.


      From the apex of the straps to the center of the seat measures 30" tall. The straps meet at the top with a sewn loop at each end to run a rope. The insert in the seat is a layer of solid wood and foam, both are removable.

      what is weight capacity, what is width of seat

      This will hold any normal person that can get themselves up a cliff. I am around 190lbs and have used it no problem. Width, I dunno, but wide enough for a big guy like me. It is not designed to be the luxurious hang out, just ease the pain of hanging belays!

      The seat weighs 2lbs. It is about 28 inches wide (think about a therm-a-rest) and seeing as the webbing is all bar-tacked I would bet it will hould upward of 1000lbs. I wouldnt test that, but you should be able to sit in it, have the pig hang below you and have no problems at all.
