Reviews Summary

Here's what the reviewers think about the Tenba Shootout:

Reviewers like these things about the Tenba Shootout

  • According to users, the Tenba Shootout is made from a somewhat shiny ripstop nylon that is quite distinctive from the canvas, leather and other materials.
  • Reviewers noted that it looks quite understated and a nice mixture of two styles, namely urban professional bag and backcountry companion.
  • Testers said that that below the bag is a mini-pod which can be used as a chest pod in times of need for additional stability.
  • Testers found out that it has a cinch strap that is used to move the load closer to the body and collapse the size of the bag down.
  • Other testers discovered that the handle is attached to the body side of the bag, rather than at the top.
  • Reviewers noted that it has an expandable water bottle pocket which can see holds a water bottle very securely.
  • Reviewers pointed out the presence of white piping on the shoulder straps and down the center of the back that is both reflective providing a bit of safety at night.
  • They noticed that its small zippered enclosure that comes complete with a small lens cloth is a nice touch.
  • Several testers also indicated that it has a base made out of waterproof and mud proof material that is easily cleaned.
  • Several users noted the presence of a single pocket that extends down the entire side of the bag.
  • Other reviewers also found that the base of the bag has two zippers.
  • Users discovered that the bag's rain cover also has two sides and can be used with either the black or silver side out.

Reviewers don't like these things

  • A reviewer thought that it did not seem as robust or sturdy as some of the other materials.
  • A tester said that the strap that secures the top of the tripod to the bag is a separate piece of kit that has to be carried somewhere.

In summary, having carried this bag fully loaded (including tripod) on a number of smaller hikes of about one and a half to two hours duration, I am very pleased with both the functionality and the comfort provided by this bag.
