Plano, IL (June 8, 2016) – Hunters know the rewards of any trip afield aren’t always headlined by downed game. The things that make for a pleasant experience outdoors are actually quite varied, and are often much more fundamental. Something as simple as remaining comfortable can play a significant role in making an outing successful and rewarding.

 Ameristep strives to make every trip afield a rewarding experience. Known best, perhaps, for marketing the most complete line of ground blinds available, Ameristep also leads the way in practical and innovative outdoor seating, offering dozens of styles and models for any outdoor pursuit.

Ameristep’s NEW Tellus and Tellus Lite compact and portable chairs are lightweight, highly packable chairs that are ideal for not only ground blind hunting, but for any outdoor pursuit – from dove, turkey and waterfowl hunting to camping and ice fishing.

 Weighing in at a mere 4.3 pounds, the new Tellus Lite Chair has a solid 225-pound capacity, yet collapses down to an astounding 14”x4”x4” package – small enough to fit into the side pocket of many hunting packs. The included carry bag sports a carabiner to aid in securing the chair to your pack’s exterior. The Tellus Lite features a super comfortable sling seat design supported by a surprisingly strong and sturdy shock-corded collapsible frame for quick set-up. A built-in gear pouch is suspended beneath the front of the seat, providing secure and easily-accessible storage for game calls, snacks, drinks, smartphone or other necessities. The attractive and stealthy Tellus Lite is finished in Realtree Xtra camouflage with a natural tan seating surface.

Need more capacity? Ameristep’s standard Tellus Chair shares all the same features as the Tellus Lite, but is rated with a whopping 300-pound capacity. The standard Tellus packs down to 15”x4”x4” – just one inch longer than the Tellus Lite – and weighs only 5 pounds.
