The video played as I watched and studied intently the simple steps involved in fitting the two pieces of the Ameristep non typical climber together for pack and carry on the hunters back. The hunter on the video was none other than Wayne Prejean who had designed this Ameristep Non-typical climber. When I approached the booth at the Bass Pro Outdoor Show, I was quickly introduced to Wayne Prejean and when I asked about the non-typical climber he offered to show me his instruction video. I watched the video, and afterward felt confident that I could assemble the two pieces in backpack style and then quickly attach it to a tree, on my own in the upcoming archery season.
The lightweight welded aluminum construction and padded backpack straps make this Ameristep Non-typical climber easy to pack in anywhere. At nineteen pounds, it is lighter than many other stands that weigh in well above this weight class. The nice part about pack in climbers is the ease of sliding it together and reassembly of the pieces at the tree. A Speed Cable Locking System adjusts to the diameter of the tree and is surrounded by a rubber compression layering which grips the wood solidly as you climb. The padded multi positioning shooting rest is a nice extra for the gun season and this piece doubles as the rest you sit upon while climbing the tree. The Comfortmax seat is removable, with cinch straps that are fully
The platform size is 20" by 32" and is rated to hold 300 pounds. The shape and position of the vertical channel contacts at the back of the platform keep the climber at rest against the tree for a better fit against any shape. An angled toe brace supports feet in a comfortable position once you get to the top of the tree and settle in for the hunt.
The Ameristep Non-Typical climber is TMA approved and includes a TMA approved five-point full body harness. The Treestand Manufacturers Association is a non-profit organization with members who are corporations that manufacture tree stands. Industry members who manufacture products or tree stands that assist hunters to an elevated position must be TMA certified. In other words, these members must adhere to the specific standard testing methods for their products, which elevate hunters while hunting. The TMA pursues its members to actively seek certification of conformance to association standards on all tree stand products.
I have used this climber throughout the archery season and I like it for its weight and size. The Ameristep Non-typical climber is easy for me to pack, sits comfortably in the tree and has been a dependable climber stand in each use.
