Tenba Messenger Camera Case (Graphite)

Color Gray

Model # 638-421

Made By Tenba

The DNA 8 Graphite Messenger Bag from Tenba fits your mirrorless camera with 2-3 lenses, flash and accessories. There is also a rear padded sleeve to hold your 8" tablet or MacBook Air 11". The bag has been designed with a removable camera insert with configurable dividers. When not needed, you can remove the insert that converts the DNA 8 to an all-purpose carry-all bag. There are also large elasticized micro-mesh pockets for a water bottle or lens storage. 

This is an all-weather bag made from a graphite-colored 600 denier Helix fabric with a durable water-repellent coating. The interior is ripstop nylon with a gear-friendly brushed tricot lining. The bottom of the bag is finished with an abrasion, and moisture-resistant tarpaulin. This protects the bag should you place it on the ground. The removable shoulder strap connects to the bag's D-rings and can be used in an over-your-back position to keep the bag out of the way while cycling or hiking. The front flap is tapered with sewn hinges and adds to the overall protective quality of the bag. Tenba's exclusive Fidlock magnetic clips secure the bag from the bottom and simply slide into position rather than traditional snap couplers. For even more convenience, they can be activated with one hand. A top YKK zippered opening eliminates the need to open the entire bag and provides rapid access to the contents. 

Additionally, the DNA 8 features a removable double-sided rain cover. The silver side can be used to reflect heat while the black side tends to disguise the bag while you're on the go. Finishing off the bag is a top grab handle for briefcase-style transportation
