Tenba Shootout Backpacks
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.
Waterproof Bottom Panel
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). This bag features a special abrasion and moisture resistant panel on the bottom to keep the bag dry and protected no matter what’s on the ground.
Shootout Backpack 18L — Black
Capacity: 2 DSLRs with 3-5 lenses, plus flash and accessories.
Our goal in creating the new Shootout Backpack was to design the most comfortable camera backpack on the planet — as comfortable as a bag for hardcore hikers and adventure travelers, but with a streamlined, professional look that would not be out of place (or draw unwanted attention) at a wedding or executive photo shoot. The unique Pivot Fit™ straps adjust automatically to different shoulder shapes, and each strap is covered in a moisture-wicking smooth lycra that moves easily and doesn't create friction on clothing. All the materials have been carefully selected to deliver extraordinary long-term durability, but with the least possible weight. We use only nylon fabrics — no polyester — because nylon is more water-repellant, durable and tear-resistant than polyester. This is the ultimate "Never Compromise" backpack for photographers and filmmakers.
The 18L backpack achieves high performance in a compact size. No one should have to compromise on quality just because they want to carry a smaller camera system. The 18L backpack will fit 2 DSLRs with 3-5 lenses (up to 300mm 2.8 attached), plus an iPad or laptop up to 13 inches, and it weighs a scant 3.2 pounds (2.6 without dividers).
