YKK makes the best zippers in the world. Period. They are more reliable over a longer period of time, and they withstand the stress of heavy equipment and the abuses of travel. And we only use the self-healing zippers with specially designed zipper coils that easily reconnect if they separate from over-packing.
Nylon is more rugged, water- and tear-resistant than polyester, that’s why it’s used in all of the best outdoor camping, hiking and travel gear. A nylon exterior ensures that Tenba bags are built to withstand serious professional use and the rigors of heavy travel, yet they remain extremely lightweight.
Duraflex clips and fasteners are the choice of the U.S. military and law enforcement, and they are the standard for the best outdoor carry gear for any application. And they maintain reliability at extreme temperatures.

After receiving a DSLR camera for Christmas, I immediately started shopping for a bag that would meet my needs. With so many choice on the market I opted to visit my local camera shop for some advice. They showed me the Tenba Messenger bag and had me place my camera and lenses in to see how I liked the configuration. With room to spare, I added my i-Pad and my MacBook Pro and still had room for cords and a tripod. I especially like the top access zipper so I can get to my gear quickly. The exterior is very durable and doesn't scream "there's an expensive camera inside" with big name branding. Finally, the shoulder strap and pad are top-notch. The pad is extra thick and allows for hours of carrying equipment comfortably. Two thumbs up Tenba! Close

This is BY FAR the best camera bag I've EVER owned! I've gone through 7 different companies and probably 15 bags before I found Tenba. The construction of this bag is phenomenal. I have a 17" laptop, 2 pro DLSR bodies with a wideangle lens, a 70-200 2.8 lens, speedlight, extra batteries and 2 water bottles. With all my equipment in there it's probably around 30 lbs if not more (at least it feels that heavy). I've had this bag since at least 2010 maybe earlier. It's the longest I've ever had a camera bag last because of the beating they go through with me. Plus the sides have loops so I can hang one turbo flash battery pack on either side. The zipper on top allows you access into the main compartment for quick easy access without having to open the main flap. Great for photojournalists! Fabric really is weather resistant. I've had this in the rain, snow, sleet etc and never had anything ever seep into the bag!
Overall, GREAT product. If this bag ever dies, or breaks, I'll be buying another one for sure! Close

I needed a bag that would comfortably carry my full size laptop, iPad and micro 4/3 camera with me on international business trips. This large size Tenba has been the right choice. Looks good, but doesn't attract unwanted attention. Flexible with removable inserts and lots of pockets for paperwork. Very pleased. Close

I've been using the large messenger daily now for 2 years and if it EVER wears out, which I don't see happening anytime soon, it will be replaced by the same bag. I have a 17" acer laptop fits comfortably in the sleeve. Other bags that said the 17" laptop would fit, sadly did not. Generous proportions inside the bag. Well worth every penny, as I don't have to replace it like all my other bags. And it looks great. Padded shoulder strap never changes length by itself with a heavy load. Close
