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