That has a shooting rail and is quiet to pack in and easy to climb with?

Until I read your desire for a shooting rail I was going to suggest Lone Wolf's climber, but it has an open front.  It's one I'm considering myself right now.  In my case I want to avoid the rail to make it lighter and more compact when walking through the woods.   Thinking I'd use a monopod if hunting somewhere with long shot opportunities, but that doesn't happen often for me.

That's going to be a hard stand to find, as with anything there is a compromise. We all use the gunslinger stand, I have two, Splittoe has three jap51 has two, BoBalistic had one but with his knee replacement he had to give up climbers. There super comfortable you have several ways to rest your gun and easy to climb with. I feel super safe in it and have been known to take a afternoon nap in one. Gunslinger is built in Florida by Deer Crossing Deerstands

I put this on my ladder stand with zip ties

When it wears out, easy and cheap to replace.

Flint, I do something similar here on the shooting rail of my ladders.  Found some of that foam with a self-stick overlap, an 8' piece easily covers two rails with some left.  Yari's right though, the rodents love to chew that stuff.  They chewed the plastic knobs completely off one of my stands, the ones the rail rests on.
