About Tenba

The Discovery: Top Load (Sage/Khaki) from Tenba is a minimalist bag designed to carry bare bones gear for a day trip. It's rated to hold a medium-sized DSLR (such as a Canon 5D/7D or Nikon D300/D700) and up to a 5.0" (12.7 cm) lens - that's it. However, it will also handle the various required accessories such as batteries, memory cards, wallet and keys.

It's made from a tough water-repellent nylon that is supported by self-healing zippers and a handy rain cover that can be quickly opened when it rains or snows. A wide, adjustable and removable shoulder strap supports the whole package. It's non-slip and contoured design make the bag even easier to use. There's also a top grab handle for quick retrieval from a closet or back seat of your car. Tenba has even made the bottom panel waterproof in case you have to place the bag on wet ground. For even more comfort, the back panel has been provided with a generous supply of air mesh for breathability and comfort.

A real plus to this bag is the way it opens - away from your body. This gives you easier and faster access to your gear when that special shot appears. This style of opening also provides a measure of security since no one standing around will be able to see inside the bag. The side zippered pockets are slanted downwards for both facility of use and to help wick away moisture . All the bag's zippers have handy pull tabs for easier use with gloves.

The front of the bag is secured with a strong buckle and zipper. This allows you to leave the zippers open and just use the buckle to quickly grab your gear, or zip the bag and leave the buckle open. Inside, the dividers are all padded and configurable. Store your camera with the mounted lens pointing downwards. It's a small, lightweight bag designed for the shooter who doesn't want to be saddled with an excess of equipment. If less is truly more, then this is a bag to be seriously considered.

Tenba, well taught out, well made.


I had ordered two Tenba Bags, The Discovery Extra Light Weight Top Load Bag and the Discovery Photo Laptop Messenger Mini.Both bags are well made. I choose the Messenger Mini and returned the Top Load. The Messenger Mini had a little more room and was better suited for my " take this with ...just in case thinking" They were both very light weight. I currently own three Tenba bags and have no complaints. I just needed the variety to meet specific needs, and the Messenger Mini fills the void. I don't think you could make a mistake with Tenba or Adorama.

Questions about this item:

MAURICIO O  How many professional camera lenses can fit inside the bag?
CRAIG V  Mauricio, This bag works great for carrying my Canon 1D and a EF 24-105 Lens. This is my best all around lens. This is the beauty of the Tenba Top Load...you carry just the basics. I am not certain how you work, so I will explain how I do. Before going out, I pick a number of lenses that I feel will do the best job for me. These are carried in either a large Camera Bag or Pelican Hard case. Additionally, I bring a couple of smaller bags so I can adapt. Usually, I will take the above camera lens arrangement and visit the area I would like to shoot and then if needed come back with the appropriate lenses. This way my day of Camera Shooting is more enjoyable. I like the Tenba Top Load because of it is light weight, easy to use, comes with a rain cover and its covert appearance. When in the city I sometimes carry a baby bottle in the side pocket. Hopefully, nobody wants a diaper bag. If you are going to carry just lenses in this bag ,I guess that you could probably carry 3 or 4 lenses depending on there size. But thats not what it is designed for. I would suggest that you order the bag and see if it is right for you. If not Adorama has a great return policy. If you purchase this bag to carry some basics, I think you will be happy. Hope this information was helpful to you..
