The Waldrop PacSeat

Less time hanging stands. More time hunting.

David's Story

Thank you for visiting my website and expressing your interest in the Waldrop PacSeat. This seat was born out of a desire of a bowhunter to be able to hunt on the ground, with a bow, in complete comfort at the same time be totally effective on game.  Tall order - you're not kidding, especially with bow and arrow.

I was a typical deer hunter with usually eight to ten tree stands hung high and low, here and there, over yonder and just down the road. I became what I call a prisoner to my stands and more precisely to their location and the wind. Plus, I was getting older and not wiser and forgetting where I was hanging the darn things. I spent a lot of time hanging stands, clearing lanes, all the things we do, including "stinking up " the woods. A lot of time, I thought, could be better spent actually hunting. I was a tree climbing fool for a lot of years - never dreaming there was another way to do it. I finally got tired of it all, mainly not being able to hunt particular stands because of the wind. I needed to be freed some kind of way.

That way turned out to be the birth of the PacSeat. It has enabled me to hunt almost anywhere I choose, at anytime I choose, and be extremely effective, without having to hang a tree stand.

Special Thanks
I would like to send special thanks to my friends Matt Schuster and Sam Roberts for their help through wisdom!

What my customers are saying...

"Hey David, this is Chris Hancock. Wanted to touch base with you about my first kill on my PacSeat. Haven’t had much chance to go but finally hunted on it, Thanksgiving Eve. Literally sat in the edge of the cotton field with my rifle and shot a 138 lb doe at 20 yds! Should have been my bow!"

Chris Hancock

"I just wanted to give a shout out to Dave Waldrop the maker of the Waldrop Pac Seat. First off, IMHO the Pac Seat is one of the best hunting seats made today. The craftsmanship and attention to detail is of the highest quality bar none. I recently had a question regarding a seat I bought over 5 years ago. I sent a message through the WPS website and I got a call back from Dave himself within 15 minutes of posting my question. He helped address my question and issue beyond all expectations.
If you are looking for a top-notch hunting seat you should most definitely check out the Waldrop Pac Seat. It's the most comfortable and versatile seat I have ever owned. In my 40+ years of hunting, it's one of the best pieces of gear that I've purchased. If you're in the market for a new seat I highly recommend you check it out, boys. Made in the USA. Great product, Great customer service. Great guy. You can't go wrong."

"I do a lot of my hunting from the ground. I've tried just about every stool or chair that there is, and everything has come up short in one way or another, but not my PacSeat! I have found it to be extremely lightweight, dead quiet, rock solid, and so extremely comfortable that it sometimes puts me to sleep. I will not hunt from the ground without my PacSeat!"

Dendy Cromer

"I’m very impressed with your design and craftsmanship! The comfort and versatility of this seat is outstanding. I feel fortunate to be able to use such an innovative, well designed and constructed product.
I hunt mostly in the mountains of WV so lightweight gear is very important. When I opened the box I immediately thought that this is perfect-it’s so light and replaces two pieces of gear. Well done!"

"The 3 problems most seats have is.. too much weight, not enough comfort, and you guessed it, they squeak at the most inopportune time! This seat weighs only 4 pounds and is so comfortable you can take a snooze anywhere (as my 11 year old daughter experienced moments before killing a gobbler this spring). The design is simple yet very durable and solid. For years I struggled with getting chairs and blinds in and out of the woods during turkey season, but thanks to the PacSeat that is no longer an issue! An additional thought would be “it’s an awesome gift for friends”. I have given two of them to my friends and they love them!"

Levi Weaver Jr

"The Waldrop PacSeat is one of the finest packable seats on the market today, and 100% handmade by David. A hunting seat designed by a hunter for hunters. It is extremely versatile allowing you to use it as a stand alone seat or propped up against a tree."

Jeff Kichens

"I have been hunting from the ground for several years now, and I always struggled with staying comfortable. I normally used a tree seat that I had made or a swiveling stool of some sort, and they were noisy and uncomfortable to sit in for any length of time. The Waldrop Pacseat allows me the freedom to be very mobile, and able to remain comfortable for long sits. It is extremely lightweight, quiet and comfortable, and is the one piece of equipment that I never go hunting without."

Brian Dannenfelser

Kingwood, Tx

"With a weight of just 4 pounds and comfortable enough to take a nap in, the Waldrop PacSeat is everything a ground hunter could ask for. I have had many hunting stools over the years and finally found THE ONE. Being able to move a little with no noise is a must when hunting on the ground and the PacSeat is just that. I hunt only with my longbow, and I like to be mobile. My PacSeat is by far the most comfortable hunting seat I have ever sat in. Comfort means you can be a lot more still. Thanks for building the ultimate seat."
