It’s a canvas and aluminum chair that folds when it’s not needed. The folding nature also makes it easy to tote to and from the hunting blind.

The triangular shaped seating allows you to pivot without depending on a pivot device on the chair.

The chair has a flared backrest so you lean back and relax a bit while waiting those long morning and evening hours.

Browning Huntsman Hunting Blind Chair
When you take your first look at the Browning Huntsman’s chair, you’d probably think that’s an office chair! Admittedly, it does resemble an office chair quite a bit, but once you start looking at the finer details, you’d see that the Chair has a bit more going for it than your office chair. Unless your office is a deer blind and you are enjoying the good life. The Huntsman chair does feature a full-sized seat and backing for increased comfort and back support.
The chair doesn’t feature traditional padding; instead, it utilizes mesh material to support the body (see full specs). This is Browning’s Tech mesh. The benefits of this material are numerous. It’s water resistant, and when exposed to water it dries incredibly fast. The use of mesh also gives you more room to sit, a more robust chair back, without adding significant weight.
The Huntsman Chair also features three legs that can be independently adjusted to compensate for rough terrain. The feet are round and use a ball joint to auto stabilize the chair. It pivots on a 180-degree plane and allows the shooter to silently spin the chair to dial a shot in. The chair’s height is adjustable for us tall guys. Of course, the system folds up easily for carrying, and weighs 13 pounds. Hands down, it’s among the best hunting blind chairs.
Millennium G100 Blind Chair
If you’re the type of guy who wants to get a little chance with his blind chair then we have a choice for you. It’s not the cheapest option, but it is one of the more robust and the lightest options on the list (see full specs). The G100’s biggest draw is its modularity. I’ll get this out of the way now. You can attach an arm and monopod shooting stick to rest your rifle on. This ensures you have a stable, all-in-one platform for shooting whatever your chosen game is.
The Chair itself has a silent 360 swivel device and can adjust from 13 inches to 18 inches in height. The design is made from aluminum and is made to last. The aluminum features a powder coat finish for rust resistance. The three legs are independently adjustable with self-stabilizing feet.
The pad is one large piece of taught material that forms a sling seat. This gives the user a comfortable, and robust place to rest. The design folds away for easy carry and weighs only 7 lbs. Plus it has the ability to hold 400 pounds, which means if that, even if you’re Jabba the Hutt’s slightly smaller sibling, you’ll feel comfortable on it.

Best of all the swivel function is silent and you are capable of slowly and silently spinning yourself into position.
