He may not look like much to the uninitiated, but any experienced, globe-trotting hunter will tell you that North America’s wild turkey can be one of the world’s toughest animals to harvest.

From the time he’s hatched, the wild turkey is a target for predators. As a result, he’s equipped with keen defenses to stymie his foes; hunter included. His powerful legs propel to speeds up to 25 miles per hour. His detailed eyesight is telescopic with a 180-degree field of view – unmatched among game animals. Give a turkey the chance and he’ll see your eye move at 100 yards. To make matters worse, he’s a social creature who seldom feeds or travels alone, so chances are you’ll have more than one set of eyes to contend with.

The bottom line? Turkey hunters need every advantage they can get.

Tenzing Outdoors is known for building hunting packs that give every hunter his or her best chance for success; carrying the gear they need to where they need it, and doing it better than anyone else. Turkey hunters are gear fanatics by definition, requiring a full arsenal of calls, camo, decoys and other tools to fool one of the world’s wariest game animals. The turkey warrior’s newest tool is the new Tenzing TZ TV14 Turkey Vest.

Weighing in at just over two-pounds, the TZ TV14 turkey vest fits like a pack, courtesy of adjustable pack-style shoulder straps, which ensure a comfortable fit against any hunter’s torso. A channeled, air-cooled back pad lends additional comfort to the wearer while walking, running, gunning or sitting on the integral, fold-down, padded seat. The seat deploys and stows simply, securely and instantly thanks to its silent, magnetic fasteners.

Once seated, turkey hunters can call ‘em closer or wait ‘em out with a minimal movement, as the TZ TV14 is engineered for complete comfort and places every turkey hunting tool within easy reach. Calls, shells and other items stay organized and readily accessible in a network of specialized pockets, including dedicated places for box calls, slates, strikers, diaphragm calls, shells and more. Don’t forget the camera, either, for that hard-earned grip-and-grin; the TZ TV14 has room. A total capacity of 1700 cubic inches ensures ample space inside for decoys, snacks, choke tubes, water bottles and more. The TZ TV14 is available in Realtree Xtra or Mossy Oak Obsession, providing critical defense against a gobbler’s eyesight in any setting.

Tenzing does their job to make sure you can do yours. When your gobbler’s down, pack him out in the TZ TV14 Turkey Vest’s carefully engineered, expandable turkey pocket. Don’t worry, a thoughtful, hunter orange safety pullover will have your back during the walk back to the truck.
