GREENVILLE, S.C. (August 1, 2012) – Wilderness Systems has built its brand a commitment to quality and performance, and for 2013, that means the brand continues to push the limits of innovation with its famous outfitting. This year, Wilderness Systems' renowned outfitting takes comfort, adjustability, and reliability to a whole new level with its Phase 3® AirPro Outfitting, allowing paddlers and anglers alike to feel the Wilderness Systems difference.

Wilderness Systems Phase 3 AirPro Outfitting: The Wilderness Systems patented Phase 3 seating system has become the industry leader when it comes to an amazingly comfortable seat. And now it's even better.

WS AirProSeating Introducing the new Phase 3 AirPro; designed with innovative ergonomic features that add comfort and easy adjustability. Varying densities in the foam padding provide extra cushioning along the spine and under the legs while comfortably supporting the sit bones. The flexible back rest conforms to and moves with your back and a cutaway provides spinal support. The AirPro also features a special material over the perforated foam that improves ventilation so you and your seat breathe and dry out quickly.

The Phase 3 AirPro Outfitting features such ergonomic details as easily accessible controls and a re-designed leg lifter that has now become the central control for adjusting both the seatback and leg lifter height. With just an easy pull of a strap the seat back is lowered. Located in the front of the central controls is a mesh bag that can be used for storing the leg lifter handle, a water bottle, or other items that need to be accessible.

Phase 3 AirPro has taken kayak outfitting to a new level in ergonomics, ease of use, innovative materials, and custom adjustability. It's the kind of innovation that you would expect from Wilderness Systems.

Phase 3 AirPro Ride Advance and Ride Advance Angler: Paddlers are always looking for advancements in performance and comfort. The new elevated seat found in all Ride Advance and Ride Advance Angler models is just what they're looking for. With over 4" of increased height over the standard Ride seat, this Phase-3 AirPro elevated seat reduces the effort required to enter and exit the boat without sacrificing the paddling performance or stability that has made the Ride models legendary in the market.

Anglers and non-Anglers alike can appreciate the numerous storage trays for stashing their gear within easy reach. Flat surfaces at the rear of the seat can be used for attaching rod holders, safety lights and cup holders, while a large opening tucked under the leglifter provides the perfect storage place for tackle boxes or larger items.

In addition to the increased comfort that comes from a more natural seating position, the Phase 3 AirPro Advance seat comes with all of the industry-leading features of our new outfitting system including breathable, ergo-comfort pads; a redesigned backrest with increased back support; improved ventilation; and, all the adjustments to insure all-day comfort on the water.

Best of all, if you have a Wilderness Systems kayak, you can purchase the new Phase 3 AirPro Outfitting separately and feel the difference yourself.

The Ride models just advanced to a whole new level of performance.
