    Just the right size - Tenba - DNA 11 Messenger Bag

    This is my second Tenba Messenger bag and i love them both. I have the larger DNA 13 for my full sized DSLR. This one ( DNA 11 ) will accommodate a full sized DSLR, but its a little tighter then the 13. I use this for my smaller camera. The Nikon P900. Shaped like a DSLR, but is little smaller. Fits perfectly in this bag. This bag has tons of storage for all of your camera gear. The main compartment inside is removable and comes with the cushioned inserts with Velcro on the ends so that they can be installed in many different configurations to separate everything inside. The bag is made from a water repellent military grade 1000 denier nylon, YKK zippers, Duraflex clips, steel D rings and a waterproof bottom panel according to their website. I can say that the material is water repellent and feels very durable. The zippers with the loops are awesome. The magnetic clips that close the bag are very cool. Clicks to lock in a second and easy to unlock to open the flap. Tons of pockets on the outside for smaller gear such as filters, cleaning products, cell phone etc. The bag also comes in 4 colors. Also love the quick access pocket at the top without opening the flap. Too many features to mention for this small review. Check it out on their site. It's an awesome bag!

    Great mirrorless bag - using a6300

    A camera bag review is highly subjective, so everyone should try and come to their own conclusions. For context, I use an a6300 and have 3 lenses. 18-105mm f/4, 35mm f/1.8, and 10-18mm f/4. My first impressions... The bag is well designed. It easily holds all the gear with more space left over. It even has a space to hold an iPad (and I speculate it should hold an 11" notebook as well). It has an optional shoulder cross harness if you need to secure it better. It has a strap on the back side of the bag that you realize can be used to slide on the pull-out bar of carry on luggage. There are plenty of dividers and even has a raincoat. It's a great bag that IMHO looks great. The only things I find slightly annoying is that although there are a lot of pockets, they hug the body and I am reluctant to stuff things in there cause it'll bulge out. The other is price. However, I plan to use this bag heavily the next month so I'll have a better idea. But so far, this bag has a great first impression. On a side note, best buy only has one color as of the date of this review. I like the Graphite color, but if you look around on the Internet, there is also Olive, Cobalt, and Dark Copper.

    Great alternative to a camera backpack.

    The Tenba DNA 11 is very well made with abundant storage options for your camera and accessories. It also includes an all-weather cover for wet or rainy conditions. I was able to fit my Nikon D500 with a lens attached and still had room for two other lenses. Additionally, it could hold my iPhone 6s Plus, user manual, memory cards, water bottle, and other items with ease. There is a separate compartment for your iPad or small laptop and many hidden pockets for your passport, currency and other important documents. Even though the bag became very heavy when fully loaded, it still felt relatively comfortable and secure on my shoulder and was easy to maneuver while traveling. I really appreciate its compactness when compared to a backpack and there is quick and easy access to your equipment from a hidden zipper in the top flap. Another advantage is that you can keep the bag in front of you for added security. Some complaints are the velcro tabs on some of the dividers seem unnecessary and the magnetic quick release tabs are easily dislodged. Overall, the Tenba served me excellently on a recent trip to Europe as a travel and camera bag while not looking like an obvious camera bag.

    Great Bag For All Your Gear

    I've been looking / shopping for a while, for a versatile gear bag. One of the 1st things I noticed about this bag is the zipper on top - how does this work? where does this go? I was pleasantly surprised to find that it is a quick access to my gear without opening the bag itself. Much easier to get access to what I need without opening all my gear to the world. Placement of pockets is a plus. The internal side pockets hold cables, charges, batteries, etc. whatever you need. If you looking for a gear bag for your electronics (camera, camcorder, GoPro, drone (doesn't hold a drone, but the gear for your drone), etc.) this bag is worth looking at. Another bonus is style. This bag does not look like all the rest. It works efficiently without all the fuss of other bags, and looks as well as it performs.

    Best Camera Bag So Far

    I have had several camera bags over the years, none of which were really a good "fit" — they always seemed cumbersome or hard to organize. I don't like backpack style bags and I returned a "sling" type bag after one day. I had a Tenba several years ago that I liked quite well, and when my niece had the opportunity to go to the Cannes Film Festival, I gave it to her to carry her new Canon T6i and additional gear. She loved it. But that left me without a bag! I thought I could make do with an old bag, but I didn't relish the thought of using it for the 3 week trip I had coming up. So I bought this bag. I love it. It has the right number of compartments to store all my camera goodies (a Canon 77D, with two lenses, battery charger, extra battery, speedlite, memory cards, room for an iPad…) It's a great bag and I'd recommend it to anyone.

    Great Camera Bag

    I have multiple camera bags but I love this one. I try not to carry a large bag unless needed but I am always worried that if I do not I will damage something . This bag allows me to carry everything that I need including my iPad and the size is perfect for me. If i need to carry it on my body it is not too large and bulky. I love the fact that when I sit the bag on the floor it does not fall over like the other bags. I watched the video from the Tenba website to make sure I utilize all of the features. I did not like the price but I am happy that I made the purchase It was worth it, you get what you pay for. I plan to purchase another for my other camera and lens. https://www.tenba.com/products/messenger-dna-11-graphite.aspx#Overview

    Amazing bag

    This bag is not only light weight but can hold way more than meets the eye. I use this for my Sony A7II, one extra lens, table tripod, sling, 2 GoPro blacks, GoPro brackets, memory cards, notebook, and tablet every where I go walking around. Sometimes you just don't want to carry a backpack and this is a great replacement. There's also a strap so you can hook this up to itself and old it around your back instead of a messenger back, keeps the bag out of the way, and in a precarious situation can make a cushion if you fall. I fell 15 feet down a cliff face onto a boulder with this in-between me and it (yes camera inside) and midget injured nor was my equipment damaged. I can't speak more highly of this bag.

    Great Bag with lots of room

    I wanted a bag for all my electronics (iPad, iPod, thumb drives, head phones, etc.). When I went into the store I saw this bag and saw all the compartments, which would allow me to separate all my gadgets. In addition, its taller size made it perfect to also store my iPad. The only drawback, which is why I only gave it 4 out of 5 stars, is the hefty price. I made the mistake of not looking at the price when I picked it up, so was a little shocked when I got to the checkout and found that it was $140.
