About Tenba

Tenba Shootout Series
An advanced collection of photo/imaging carry gear and accessories, aimed predominantly at serious outdoor/active photographers. The initial Shootout launch includes five Photo/Laptop Backpacks, a Convertible Photo Waistpack, a Rolling Utility Duffel and an accessory Lens/Bottle Caddy. These will shortly be followed by a full range of outdoor-oriented shoulder bags, photo/laptop messenger bags and accessories

Shootout was developed and fine-tuned by the company's in-house design team for over a year, with the specific goals of providing lightweight, comfortable, action-oriented packs and bags with a high level of protection, and innovative, pro-grade features.

The additional challenge was to do it all with truly new, head-turning design and execution, so around and beneath Shootout's unique, curvy shaping and styling is the kind of attention to detail that customers have come to expect from a brand that has been focused on top-level shooters for 30 years.

Key features (which vary by model) include weather-sealed zippers, convertible QuickAccess pockets, a new and innovative tripod carrying system, and Tenba's exclusive WeatherWrap auxiliary cover.

Shootout Backpacks
The flagships of the collection, Shootout Backpacks are offered in five simply-named sizes: Mini, Small, Medium, Large and Large Rolling. The size range covers every conceivable need, from day-trippers and vacationing enthusiasts to outdoor/commercial pros working on remote locations or expeditions.

All sizes except the Mini include padded, frame sheet reinforced laptop compartments for computers up to 17" (depending upon backpack size). The Large and Rolling backpacks are suitable for lenses up to 400 or 500mm, depending upon specific equipment variables.

All models incorporate easily customized, well-padded interiors, fully-adjustable harness/belt systems, and the fast-deploying, "Velcro-free" WeatherWrap auxiliary protection cover. The generous, padded side pockets feature interior panels that can be moved to convert the space from cargo pocket to QuickAccess interior hatches.

This allows fast, easy retrieval of a lens or accessory without having to fully remove or open the entire pack. The Backpacks also feature a significant new innovation, dubbed "MSTC", for Multi-Stage Tripod Carrying system, which adjusts to securely and optimally carry tripods of varying sizes and styles.

All Shootout Backpacks and Waistpacks also come complete with "attachable" accessories one a media card wallet and the other a padded pouch for phone or portable audio player. The accessory cases are secured to the packs with clip-on security tethers, but can be removed and attached to various clip-on points on Shootout waist belts and/or shoulder pads.

Tenba also offers an optional Lens/Bottle Caddy, which can be attached to the same clip-on points and "self stows" when not in use.

Weight is 5.7lbs


from New York, NY  -  Photo Enthusiast

Noticed the weight isn't listed. The Mini is 4lbs and the Ultralight is 2.9. But if you are thinking about the Ultralight, you really are only getting 1/2 a bag. Make sure you check the configuration.


Good pack but heavy


from San Jose  -  Photo Enthusiast

Excellent pack, not small. Good for a pretty large amount of equipment. Pack is deeper than some, which allows for easy carrying of gear, but makes the pack heavier.
