Bags of Ideas from Tenba

New York company adds more options for image makers on the move

Camera bag specialist Tenba has expanded its Axis V2 collection with a flurry of new ways to transport our photo and video kit. These include new slings and backpacks – both of which are available right now.

Designed to be lightweight with body-contouring foam to provide comfort, the 4L Sling Bag has the capacity for a camera with one or two lenses and up to a 24-70mm f/2.8 lens attached, while the larger 6L variety can accommodate a camera and two to three lenses, also with up to a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens attached. Both options feature pivot straps, allowing them to be converted into a waist pack if so desired. Additional accessories can be stashed in a front pocket, with the ability to expand the set-up by adding lens capsules, battery pouches and card wallets. Straps on the underside allow a monopod or tripod to be carried, while a double-sided rain cover grants weather protection. Pricing varies from £89 to £105, depending on the bag and colourway selected. Decide between regular black or military-grade Multicam Black fabric.

Next up is a 16L RoadWarrior briefcase and camera bag that can accommodate the likes of a 16in laptop, 12.9in iPad Pro, documents plus a battery, cable and adapters. A supplied ‘BYOB’ insert can fit a compact camera with two to three lenses, or can be removed and carried by utilising its own shoulder strap. Described as ‘take anywhere’, further features include a trolley strap and the fact it meets the definition of airline carry-on luggage. Pricing for the bag starts at £219.

Alternatively, the 18L LT and 20L LT are lightweight backpacks benefitting from dual side access. Each option fits a mirrorless camera or DSLR with up to a 70-200mm f/2.8 attached, while being compatible with either 14in or 16in laptops respectively. Both feature a tripod/gimbal pocket, trolley strap, pivot-fit harness and convertible top pocket that can either be used to store gear or a rain jacket. Pricing for the two varies from £150 to £190, again depending on colourway.
