Plano, IL (March 9, 2016) – From the beginning of man’s hour we came; toiling for our hard-earned subsistence through the centuries. The ongoing experiment in the chase for wild, unspoiled protein led to continual advances in weaponry, tools and tactics, which the successful embraced and further refined. Those who remain, today, continue seeking innovation; searching for enhanced concealment, stealth, and the perfect tool to store and transport their compliment of weaponry to and from the field of battle. But the ultimate hunting pack has been elusive… until now.
Driven by an infinite commitment to technological innovation for hunters, Tenzing™ Outdoors continues to crank out new, high performance products poised to do more, carry more and elevate the hunting experience by doing it better than anything else out there; no matter where or what you hunt.

So how do you improve staple performers such as Tenzing’s TZ 2220 Day Pack and TZ 4000 Pack, while elevating an all-new-for-2016 pack to an even higher level of performance?

Dress them in one of the hottest and most technologically advanced, new camo patterns available today: Kryptek HighlanderTM.

“Today’s hunters are detail-oriented,” says Jay Robert, backcountry hunter, product designer and soul and spirit behind the Tenzing brand. “They demand and deserve products that not only perform without exception, but also provide options and allow for personal choice. Camouflage selection is equal parts science and preference. We can’t live up to our name or our customers’ expectations if we fail to keep up with today’s latest, top-performing camouflage pattern options.”

Kryptek HighlanderTM is one of those patterns. Specially designed for varied geographic regions and elevations, Kryptek HighlanderTM increases stealth when pursuing a wide range of quarry in mixed terrain.
