Hunting packs lead a tough life. They’re overstuffed, overloaded and dragged through some of the worst conditions and environments imaginable. Sooner or later, stitching yields, straps break and zippers say uncle. For some, it’s hard to expect a pack to last more than a single season.
If you’re nodding your head in agreement, Tenzing has an important question: What kind of hunting pack are you using?
Hunters have plenty to be concerned with, and their gear shouldn’t add to those worries.
With the 2017 release of Tenzing’s TX Series daypacks, these six new models combine Tenzing engineering, materials and components with serious features hunters appreciate most – all for hunter-friendly prices.
The roomy Tenzing TX 17 is the workhorse of the all-new TX line. Providing 2,500 cubic inches of storage in nine pockets and compartments, the TX 17 is the largest hunting daypack in the series. Available in Realtree Xtra or stealthy Kryptek Highlander camouflage, the TX 17 pack is an ideal choice for stand and spot-and-stalk hunters pursuing all manner of game over any terrain.
The TX 17 features signature Tenzing construction, combining soft, silent and bur-resistant tricot fabric with 500D nylon and Hypalon reinforcement at all high-stress areas for worry-free durability. The TX 17 is fully H2O compatible, accepting Tenzing’s two- or three-liter hydration bladders, which are reversible for easy care and cleaning.
The adjustable waistbelt on the TX 17 is removable, and the ergonomic padded shoulder harness and included sternum strap are also fully adjustable to ensure an optimal fit with any load. Four lateral compression straps provide additional load-leveling capability.
Once strapped in, a unique trampoline-style suspension system keeps the pack away from the hunter’s back for increased airflow and comfort.
The TX 17’s versatile daypack design incorporates a generous main compartment, an additional zippered move-away face pocket, a large, handy, front shove-it pocket and two mesh side pockets for water bottles, quivers or other items.
Three internal organization pockets keep smaller necessities separated and quickly accessible.
The MSRP for the TX 17 is $149.99. Check out the TX 17 and other packs to find the one that’s best for you.
