First Look: Hawk Rival Micro Treestand

posted on November 16, 2021
Hawk has debuted a new treestand aimed squarely at hunters looking to reduce and lighten their gear load. Light and compact enough to secure to a daypack, the Rival Micro is based on a minimalized 20.5x7.5-inch platform and flip-up seat. The assembly folds flat for unobtrusive transport, and the simple design and low weight make it easy to install onto a tree with the included ratchet tree straps. The platform is adjustable to four different height levels, and for added safety, the Rival Micro comes with a full-body safety harness. While the setup itself only weighs 10.1 pounds, it is rated for up to 300, thanks to its strong aluminum frame, and nylon web seat.
