I bought this for a field seat but the uses keep coming. I painted a white bucket flat black put the seat on and soon started putting my day stores in. Bottles of water, first aid kit,shells,calls,fire starter, dry clothing,knife,extra plastic bags,TP, and food for the trip. Everything stays dry in place and is the best grab and go I have found. Wheather you put it in the pickup or atv everything is in one place. I will be buying more of these for my sons. I will be demoing this at the Fellowship of Christian Hunters meeting.
I bought this for hunting off the ground in the woods since where I hunt on the Eastern Shore of Md. is pretty wet. This works as advertised...nice and quiet. Another great feature is that is snaps securely on to the top of the bucket and doesn't just rest on top like a previous seat I had. This makes transporting in/out a lot quieter and less clumsy.
Buyer beware will not fit all 5 gallon buckets as advertised. If I had it to do over I would purchase the bucket designed for the lid. Once the lid is snapped on a bucket it is very hard to remove. I cut all of the locking tabs off it still snaps on securely enough and is much easier to remove. I have used it several times crappie fishing from the bank. It is comfortable to set on and makes a good live well instead of messing with a stringer.
