Tenzing Tactical’s TT SP-14 Backpack and Shooting Rest

Plano, known for their various cases, has been discreetly working to introduce their tactical bag brand, Tenzing Tactical. Released mid 2015 and shown during SHOT Show 2016 (with many other products), the bag has been making quiet rounds for its novel approach to being a 3-day pack as well as a fully deployable shooting rest.

By my view, the pack is a hunters dream. One does not have to hump specific gear into the field like tripods as the pack serves as the shooting base. During movement, the rifle is strapped in to the center channel allowing the hunter to use both hands rather than always managing a weapon. Once deployed as the shooting base, the bottom two sections fold out revealing dope card storage and elastic loops for 16 rounds.

Construction is of 500 denier Cordura and arrives complete with a rain cover (does not work with a rifle mounted) for extreme wet conditions. Webbing is standard nylon and the buckles are manufactured by Duraflex. Pack includes hip belts to distribute weight while carried in backpack form.

The Tactical Shooters pack is avaialble in Kryptek Typhon and in OD. No word on other colors. Packs are available through Tenzing dealers. Cheaper than Dirt has the Thyphon version priced at $244.43. 

Patriot Outfitters has an excellent video showcasing the full features of the pack.

    At $245 for this pack who do they think they are?! Maxpedition?

      That’s past maxpedition territory, and heading into kifaru land.

    I was like “Sweet , I like this”. Seen MSRP, looked over at Army Surplus 3day pack and thought, good enough.

    I got a free day pack from the Marine Corps. I’ve had it over 10 years now. It still works absolutely fine, and didn’t cost me $250.

    • JumpIf NotZero

      No, it cost me $350 😉

    So, I guess when we get into this imaginary fire right during our imaginary civil war, we will take the time to remove and carefully lay out the pack to rest our tacticool rifles on. Thank god for the fantasies of everyone because if we lived in reality, the companies that make these things would go out of buisness. Something else to collect dust within a year.

      I imagine they are aiming at the ‘real’ prepper community. By that I mean those who have a sustainable, semi-longterm plan that includes hunting as part of a sustenance program. Of course, you will ruin out of ammo eventually, but I try to give them some credit.

      That said, I feel like that ship has sailed. The zombie apocalypse may or may not be less of a possibility, but either way the prepper purchasing frenzy has decreased substantially. If they convinced the creators of DayZ to include this as the best pack in the game they’d have sold thousands. As it is, thinking in real world terms, I like it but my mil-surplus day pack does just fine. Especially comparing prices.

    These kind of backpacks are designed for hiking carrying top notch sniper rifle leaving the arms free for other task .
    This one from Tenzing is an outstanding dedicated sniper rifle carrying backpack and it does its job very well , mine is Multicam colour .

      Here it is mine

        Nice setup! When you are walking/hiking does the stock or the stock bag bounce or brush against you butt?

        • Maurizio Fulignati

          Nope at all , the setup is perfectly steady .

          If you need to carry your SWS & gear having your hands free for handling other tools this is the perfect choice

    At first I was: “Sweet for all those forest assassinations I do (I am in Norway with a suppressed rifle after all)”

    Then I saw the price so I will stick to mauling the moose instead. Suppressor is handy for that. Gives that extra needed length.

      Plus, it keeps you from showing up on the other team’s radar without using a perk.

    Remember when shooters knew how to shoot prone without having a dedicated resting product to aid them? Pepperidge Farm remembers…..
