Feature Summary

Tenba Messenger DNA 15 Camera and Laptop Bag - Graphite (638-381)
  • A new tapered front flap with a sewn hinge ensures easy closure and excellent weather-proof coverage at the corners
  • For additional wet weather protection, the bag includes a removable and reversible WeatherWrap cover that's silver on one side to reflect the heat, and black on the other side for a bit more stealth and subtlety at night
  • To prevent the bag from sliding forward while riding a bicycle or scooter, an adjustable security strap connects to D-rings on the back of bag which anchor it in position behind you.
  • Fidlock patented magnetic clips allow blind, drop-on attachment and a fast slide release. This is the quickest clip in the world. It can be both secured and opened with one hand, even when wearing gloves, or when the bag is behind you.
  • The DNA 15 fits a professional DSLR with 2-3 lenses, flash and audio gear. It will fit a DSLR with an attached 70-200mm 2.8 lens. There are two padded interior sleeves: one for a laptop up to 15 inches, and another for an iPad

While I usually only review bags that I like at least moderately, I truly enjoy using this bag. It’s on my shoulder at least 5 times per week, and I just plain trust it.
