About Tenba

Lightweight:
The Messenger Camera Bag weighs only 2.5 pounds with the padded photo insert included, and 1.6 pounds without the insert. This is 1 to 2 pounds lighter than most competing bags in this size.

Stealth:
It doesn't look like a traditional camera bag, which is by far the most requested feature from security-conscious photographers.

Quick Access:
A zipper in the top cover lets you move camera gear in and out of the bag without having to open up the front flap. This is an added security benefit because it allows a photographer to remove equipment without letting bystanders see all of the equipment inside.

Durability and Weather Resistance:
The exterior is made from military-grade 1000 Denier weatherproof-coated nylon, and the interior is ripstop nylon. In addition, there is a layer of special waterproof material on the bottom of the bag for protection if the bag is put down on a wet surface. As with the current Messenger, the Camera Bag can be machine washed in cold water (and line dried) when needed.

Top Quality Hardware:
YKK zippers and Duraflex clips. There is no better hardware available at any price.

Versatility and Organization:
The Camera Bag can be used with the included padded photo insert for maximum protection, or the insert can be removed to make a lighter, more body-hugging bag. And there are 20 pockets and storage spaces to keep small accessories organized.

Capacity:
1-2 D/SLR bodies, 3-5 lenses, flash and accessories.

The Tenba Messenger Camera Bag is classic, fast-moving, and body hugging a design preferred by the world's best photojournalists for years. Lightweight yetprotective, everything within fast, easy each. Customizable interior, loads of accessory pockets, and exclusive, innovative features geared to the real-world needs of the working pro. A bag that works hard, but doesn't call attention to itself.

Genius!

This camera bag is brilliantly thought out, down to the smallest detail. Tenba really thought about what a working professional needs. The zipper in the top that allows you access to you camera without fully opening the top and giving everyone a full view of what you're carrying. It has all kinds of zippered pockets. And its very lightweight. I carried it last week, when shooting an event with a Hasselblad, and it was very comfortable and easy to work with.

Great Bag, Poorly Quality Duraflex clips

Great flexible bag design. It's very deep and holds long lenses. Material quality is good, except for the strap clips. The shoulder strap clip was already broken when I received the bag. Tenba quickly replaced that strap. So I wrote that defect off as a fluke. But now the short handle strap clip has broken. Luckily I caught the bag before it crashed to the ground.

Great Camera Bag

By

from Singapore

Great Design, Love the top zipper quick access. The lightest bag I've ever carried. I would love if they made the shoulder padding thicker/longer along the strap to make it more comfortable. But because of the light weight of the bag you can still survive with it.

Nice bag, mostly.

from seattle, wa

This bag is too big to hang around your neck for a long period of time; yet, it's too small to hold all the gear I want to bring at times. Still, I'll use it when I need a middle-sized bag for certain situations.

I LOVE This Bag!

By

from New York City  -  Professional Artist

This is the best camera bag I've ever had. It is extremely well designed; they REALLY thought about how a professional photographer uses their bag. It is lightweight, very comfortable to carry, and has loads of pockets for organizing everything. On top of that the zipper across the top, that gives easy access to the main compartment is brilliant. It allows you to get in and out of the bag quickly, without opening the flap, and without everyone around you seeing what's in your bag. And the detachable short strap coms in handy as well. This is now my go-to bag whenever I'm out on a shoot. I LOVE it, and cannot recommend it highly enough!
