Bear River Nomad II. This model, made by the same company that manufactures stands for Remington, incorporates a belt-and-cam system at a budget price. Its BarkBiter belt is the same hybrid rubber used for timing belts in heavy machinery and, if anything, locks even more easily than the Lone Wolf's. The trade-off for this in-the-dark setup capability is weight. The Nomad II, made of aluminum tubing, weighs in at a hefty 26 pounds. The Nomad Archer, a similar Bear River stand, comes in 3 pounds lighter, mostly by omitting the enclosing rail on the seat section. The platform measures 20x241/2 inches and then angles up another 5 inches in a footrest. In theory, this allows you to set the seat section higher, making it easier to come to a standing position. In practice, I would rather have had the footrest straightened out to allow a bigger platform.
