Tenzing Packs

For all Tenzing Pack PreOrders visit Black Widow Tackle and Hunting

The other day I meet with my Tenzing rep and he showed me the line of Tenzing packs.  As soon as I pulled out one of the packs I felt total quality.  The material felt very durable and felt a lot like my old Arc’teryx Bora.  The pack has Dyneema in the high stress point area for strength.  Here is what Tenzing has to say about it “All Tenzing hunting packs are constructed with advanced strength panels reinforced with Dyneema. Acknowledged as the world’s strongest fiber, Dyneema is fifteen times stronger than steel, yet is light enough to float on water. This innovation gives Tenzing packs unmatched protection against rips, punctures and failures.”  These packs feel like that they will last a lifetime!  Only time will tell and us abusing the hell out of them:)

My Rep brought all the packs except for the TZ 6000 and the TZ 5000. out of the ones he brought I was very impressed with them but 2 of them stood out more than the rest.  The first one was the TZ 1250

•     FULLY ADJUSTABLE VERTICAL SUSPENSION

•     CHANNELED, AIR-COOLED BACK PAD

•     PADDED HIP SUPPORT

•     FOLDOUT BOW AND GUN CARRYING BOOT

•     FACE COMPARTMENT

•     HIP COMPARTMENT x 2

•     H2O COMPATIBLE (2-LITER)

•     SIXTEEN TOTAL COMPARTMENTS AND POCKETS

•     DUAL ENTRY INTO MAIN COMPARTMENT (TOP & FACE)

•     FIVE SPECIALIZED ZIP POCKETS

•     THREE COMPRESSION STRAPS FOR SECURING EXTRA GEAR

•     WEATHER GUARD LID

•     MSRP: $199.99

I like the function of a hip pack to help keep your back cooler on those hotter days and the shoulder harness for added support.  The bag has enough room for all your hunting needs.  But there is not be enough room for the layers of clothing that have been shed through out the day, but you can easily put them on top of the pack for easy accessibly for when the temp drops again.  It also has a nice gun and bow holder that folds away when not in use.  It also come with a rain cover.  This is one hell of a day pack for everyone.

Next is the TZ 2220

•    INTERNAL ALUMINUM FRAME STAY

•    PADDED HIP SUPPORT

•    CHANNELED, AIR-COOLED BACK PAD

•    FOLDOUT BOW AND GUN CARRYING BOOT

•    FOLDOUT RAIN COVER

•    H2O COMPATIBLE (2-LITER)

•    ELEVEN TOTAL COMPARTMENTS AND POCKETS

•    SIX SPECIALIZED ZIP POCKETS

•    FOUR LATERAL COMPRESSION STRAPS TO SECURE LOAD

•    TWO LOWER COMPRESSION STRAPS TO ATTACH EXTRA GEAR

•    MSRP: $199.99

For the person that likes the backpack this is it.  This pack has more than enough room for everything that you can think of taking on a day hunt.  Add yourself a AMK emergency shelter and it will be complete:)  The pack can hold a spotting scope, layers, scents, calls and much more.  This pack also has a bow and gun holder that stows in the pack and it also has a rain cover.

I was really wanting to look at the TZ 5000 and TZ 6000 but he did not have them, so Tenzing shipped them for me to take a look at.  So when I came home the other day this is what I found.

I love the pack torso adjustment.  They are not the first to come up with this but it works and is very nice to have.

This pack does have a hydration port and pocket for the bladder.

I love the sleeping bag compartment.  There is more than enough room for a sleeping bag and a sleeping pad.  I also like the divider as you can unzip it and have one large main compartment.

I love the front compartment as there is a lot of storage for all the nicknacks that you might want to take hunting.

I love the side compartment as they can hold a spotting scope and there is a zipper so that the compartments can extend for more room.

Now for the meet compartment.  This is my favorite part of the pack.  I like how the meet compartment extends out so that your meet is not mixed in with your gear.  Also at the bottom of the compartment there are a couple of drain holes for easy cleaning.  I am not sure how much meet it can hold but my 2 1/2 year old fit in there good:) with room to spare.

Now for the conclusion.  These are the best packs that I have seen in a while.  There were a lot of packs that I have grown to love but this was love at first sight!  There is plenty of storage and can even adjust the hip pockets so that you can put a holster there for added security.  I would highly recommend these pack to anyone wanting the best new hunting pack on the market either for a day pack or a multi day hunting pack with GREAT meet hauling capabilities.
