All Discovery bags have a padded, ventilated and moisture wicking back panel that provides cushioning and comfort at the contact points.
You never know when you might have to put your bag down on a wet surface. And you might not even know what put the “wet” in “wet surface” (I’m looking at you, New York City subway platform). Discovery bags feature a special abrasion and moisture resistant panel on the bottom to keep the bag dry and protected no matter what’s on the ground.
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 Discovery bags are built for serious outdoor use, yet they remain extremely lightweight.
Weather can be tricky, and the wet stuff comes unexpectedly sometimes. Discovery bags include Tenba’s exclusive WeatherWrap rain cover for extra protection when the weather is at its worst. And the WeatherWrap is removable (not stitched into the bag) so that it can be cleaned and dried after use.
Cameras and a laptop go together a lot these days. The Large Daypack provides storage and protection for both, as well as a comfortable way to carry it all around. The Daypack is remarkably lightweight, yet it fits a professional-size DSLR system, plus a laptop up to 15 inches.
Serious outdoor enthusiasts know that dehydration is dangerous. The Medium Daypack fits a CamelBak® or similar style reservoir to help you keep drinking without slowing down or having to remove the bag to retrieve a water bottle.
In the age of tablet computers and superzoom lenses, many photographers are carrying less gear than ever before, especially when traveling. The Mini Daypack is the ultimate slim, lightweight daypack for a smaller camera system and tablet computer, with room left over for lunch.
The Discovery Messenger provides essential stealth and security in two ways. First, it doesn’t look at all like a camera bag, and doesn’t draw unwanted attention. Second, the top access zipper lets you quickly retrieve gear without exposing the rest of your equipment to strangers around you.
The Top Load is designed to help you minimize the weight of your bag by focusing on the bare essentials: like a camera and lens with extra batteries and memory cards. The lighter the bag, the happier you'll be at the end of a day of travel.
The Shoulder Bag proves that you don’t need a heavy bag to carry a large camera system. This bag weighs less than two pounds, yet fits 1-2 DSLRs with 5–7 lenses plus accessories.
