A colorful and unique collection of camera bags for the prosumer photographer. Tenba’s Vector Collection ($12-$95) includes small camera pouches and top load bags for point-and-shoot cameras or an SLR camera body and one lens, plus shoulder bags and a daypack to fit larger camera systems with lenses. The bags come in striking and trendy colors such as Krypton Green, Oxygen Blue, Cadmium Red and Carbon Black. Every zipper, clip, D-ring, rain cover, lens cloth and piece of fabric is custom-dyed in three of the latest trend colors (plus black) and made to match. Tenba Vector bags are extraordinarily lightweight, and constructed of water-resistant fabrics for protection in wet weather conditions. Top Loads, Shoulder Bags and Daypacks all include Tenba’s exclusive WeatherWrap, the fastest deploying all-weather cover around, plus color-matched, microfiber lens cloths.
For the situations when all you need is one DSLR body and one attached lens, Think Tank has completely redesigned their Digital Holsters ($50-$85). Available in five different sizes and featuring an expandable “Pop Down” section that allows them to hold lenses of two different vertical heights with the hood in position or with it reversed. A feature new to V2.0 is the built-in side attachment system compatible with most Modular, Skin, or Multimedia components. The Digital Holsters also feature a side pocket for holding memory cards, a soft flap to cover the camera’s LCD, a shoulder strap, and an externally accessible seam-sealed rain cover in every model. They fit most tripod plates while attached to the camera.
While Tenba’s collection of premium, handcrafted camera bags and satchels aren’t the same as a 12-year-old whiskey, they might be just as appealing. Tenba’s Black Label ($115-$210) collection is targeted at the professional or serious enthusiast who wants a bag with upscale design, features, materials and robust construction. The bags are constructed of a specially-laminated sandwich of ballistic nylon and open-cell foam, giving them shape while offering exterior protection from abrasion, water, stains, tears and punctures. Trim and handles are made of perforated upholstery leather, inspired by luxury car interiors. Seatbelt webbing, military matte-black YKK® zippers, Duraflex® closures, and massively reinforced stress points help with strength and long-term durability.
