The undisputed choice of archers and horseback hunters, lumbar-style hunting packs combine the load-carrying capabilities of a traditional backpack with the enhanced upper-body mobility of a waist pack. Tenzing, the company committed to helping all hunters to go further and hunt longer, set new standards for lumbar pack design with the release of their TZ 1250 hunting pack in 2012. This highly adjustable, hunt-proven favorite combined meticulous design and craftsmanship with inimitable Tenzing engineering to create the most versatile and comfortable lumbar-style hunting pack available.

Upgraded for 2018, Tenzing’s redesigned TZ 1250 pack is now even better. Incorporating new high-performance materials and heightened functionality. This is a pack that can be worn all day allowing hunters to hunt fast, free and without limitations.

Featuring an improved internal organization pocket design, the new TZ 1250 incorporates 13 carefully engineered compartments and pockets for secure storage and organization of essential gear and supplies. The redesigned TZ 1250 also improves access to the pack’s spacious main compartment with secondary access provided through the face compartment in addition to the full zippered top.

The upgraded TZ 1250 now employs Robic™ rip-stop fabric in all high-stress and high-abrasion areas. Up to 50% stronger with 2.5 times the tear strength of traditional nylon fabrics, premium Robic™ rip-stop provides failsafe durability, allowing the TZ 1250 to withstand the heaviest hauls, the harshest conditions and the toughest hunts.

Wearer comfort has always been a hallmark of Tenzing design. Assuring a custom fit on any hunter under any load, the new TZ 1250’s vertical suspension is fully adjustable at seven different points. The suspension, back panel and waist belt also feature a new padded air mesh for enhanced breathability, reduced weight and diminished fatigue. Four compression straps deliver additional utility by allowing bulky or cumbersome gear like coats or rattling antlers to be easily and securely attached to the TZ 1250’s exterior.

It’s often the small details that make a difference as any hunt unfolds. That’s why detailed thought and hunt-tested insight goes into the design and construction of every premium TZ Series pack. Zippers, pulls, hardware, nylon strapping and even the stitching threads are independently tested to ensure failsafe performance. Likewise, mesh, tricot and nylon fabrics are selected for durability, stain resistance, burr resistance and noise attenuation. Finally, finishing touches like elastic cuffs provided on each strap to tidy up excess length are put in place to complete a package that’s ready to perform without compromise in any hunting situation.

Available in Realtree Edge, Mossy Oak Break-Up Country or Kryptek Highlander camouflage patterns, the TZ 1250 features a foldout rain cover, drop-down bow- or gun-carrying boot, and is fully H2O compatible with Tenzing’s hunter-preferred, reversible 2-liter hydration bladders. Like all Tenzing products, the new TZ 1250 is backed by the company’s limited lifetime guarantee.
