re: Lock-on stands
if comfort is your biggest concern I'd go with Millennium. I have the m7 microlite which is great if you're packing it in. I also have the m100u which is the most comfortable stand I've sat in but is pretty big. I feel like the deer will pick me out of a tree easier with the m100u.

re: Lock-on stands
The girlfriend and I upgraded from small game winner stands to the Lone Wolf Alplha 2. We leave it up all season so I can’t say as far as packing in and out daily. I can tell you I carried both setups along with hawk helium sticks in one trip when I initially set it up.
It’s super quiet and a huge platform. It was easy to hang by myself using just a lineman’s belt.The built in bow holder is okay. I find I make too much noise trying to get it unhooked and ready to draw. I also rather sit with the bow in my lap. Overall, I would highly recommend these stands.

re: Lock-on stands
I have a Millennium M100U (mesh seat with back) and a Novix Echo (new name for a Lone Wolf). Yes the Millennium is comfortable and I can sit all day and never want to get down, however to go from sitting to standing is a chore. The seat bottom sticks out so far from the tree you really have to stand out on the edge of the stand and lean out to get the seat flipped up. The Novix is dead quiet and easy to stand. I will not bowhunt out of the Millennium for this reason.

So my Novix is my "bow" stand and the Millennium is the "rifle" stand, usually. One thing the Novix has that the Millennium doesn't is adjustability. The tree can be crooked left, right, front to back it doesn't matter you can adjust the Novix. The Millennium is what it is. No adjustments.

Millennium's are the best hands down.

Big Game makes a great lock-on for the price.

Lone Wolf Alpha is what I use. Packs easy with 3 lone wolf sticks for long walks. Seat is comfortable. Have used millenniums at other peoples places but wouldn't use them to cart around if you are using it for mobile setups.

Wrap the bow holder area in a small diameter rope like paracord to eliminate the noise when you remove your bow.
