Stand and blind hunters don’t always want or need a traditional backpack, especially when hunting friendly confines near the house, camp or truck.  But essentials like phones, grunt calls, keys, knives, rangefinders and ammunition still need a secure ride there and back, and must remain accessible when duty calls.

Grab-and-go hunters will do well to check out the new Tenzing TZ 721 Waist Pack as an ideal solution for their localized sits on stand.  This pint-sized powerhouse has room to spare, with the added benefit of onboard core-heating technology.

With a breathable mesh waist, padded hip panels and a highly adjustable waist belt system, the 2-pound TZ 721 is designed to be worn as an unobtrusive fanny pack while traveling to or from the field.  Once its wearer settles into the stand, however, the TZ 721 can be quickly and easily repositioned to the front to keep contents accessible and make use of the plush, built-in muff as a convenient and cozy place for cold hands.  But the TZ 721 Waist Pack’s creature comforts don’t end there.  Four specialized pockets – carefully placed in strategic positions — accept hand warmers to heat the hunter’s core.

Available in Realtree Xtra and Mossy Oak Break-Up Infinity, the TZ 721 excels at storing small items inside its 17 total compartments and pockets that might otherwise get lost inside larger packs.  There’s a place for everything, starting with the hunter’s mobile device.  A pocket inside the top flap of the main compartment allows for smartphone operation without ever removing it from the pack.  Open-topped side compartments secure with adjustable bungees are ideal for rangefinders and binoculars, while the pack’s face pocket and sub-compartments are great places for calls, tags, wallet and extra ammunition.  The TZ 721’s 294 cubic-inch main compartment is perfect for gloves, hats, knives, keys or cameras.  Webbing and compression straps on the pack’s bottom come in handy for securing extra items like rattling antlers or a jacket.

Additional features on the TZ 721 Waist Pack include a super strong DYNEEMA® bottom covered with a soft TRICO material that makes the pack extremely quiet to wear and use.  A zipper near the pack’s bottom conceals a clever Velcro strap, providing a secondary level of adjustability to the waist belt.
