TenzingPLANO, Ill. -(Ammoland.com)- The pursuit of upland birds, bunnies or boars requires bush whacking through thick cover, where thorns, brush and briars can shred the pants off any unprepared or ill-equipped hunter.

The game can leave the skin on their legs looking like a bloody game of connect the dots. It’s a mistake that’s only made once.

Specialized upland pants or chaps are a must for any hunter whose avocation involves busting brush or thundering through thickets. Hands down, chaps are the preferred option. These versatile over-garments can be worn on top of any pants and afford maximum protection against the brush, thorns, cactus needles, dew and other perils conspiring to send hunters back to the truck early.

Of course, all upland chaps are not created equal. Most are notoriously stiff, heavy and uncomfortable to wear. Tenzing – the company whose gear is designed to remove limitations instead of creating them – is changing that with their release of the most comfortable high performance hunting chaps ever made: the all-new TZ UC17 Upland Chaps.

Tenzing’s performance-oriented TZ UC17 Upland Chaps are designed for action with fully articulated knees that move the way hunters move, without binding or pinching. Multi-location belt straps help, too, featuring independent length adjustments for a customized fit on any hunter’s unique physique.

Constructed of lightweight yet durable rip-stop cotton with tough, strategically placed 500D nylon brush panels, Tenzing’s new Upland Chaps feel extremely light and airy, while offering uncompromising protection against abrasion and moisture. A more comfortable pair of chaps simply does not exist.

Available in M/L and XL/XXL sizes to accommodate most hunters, the new TZ TC17 Upland Chaps are the latest iteration of Tenzing’s unyielding commitment to design, engineering and manufacturing excellence. Featuring the highest quality threads, zippers, pulls and hardware, Tenzing’s envy-inspiring Upland Chaps incorporate L/R-marked, step-through legs with full-length side zippers for easy on and off.

Snap-closure storm flaps neatly cover the leg zippers to lock out moisture and debris, while a pair of highly functional, zippered front pockets grants increased utility. Like all Tenzing products, the new TZ UC17 Upland Chaps are backed by Tenzing’s Limited Lifetime Guarantee; in the unlikely event they ever fail in the field, rest assured that Tenzing will make things right.
