Tenba Introduces DNA 15 Backpack for Cameras

Tenba has debuted the DNA 15 Backpack that features a removable camera insert, 15-inch laptop sleeve, magnetic Fidlock clips and a discrete look that doesn’t draw attention to the camera gear inside.

Tenba said the new backpack is expandable into a water-repellent roll top design.

The rolltop opening protects contents from rain when rolled tightly, and allows expandability to hold extra cargo when needed.

Tenba said the airflow harness comprises ventilating 3D airmesh and Pivot-Fit auto-adjusting straps to ensure a comfortable fit. The hip belt can be used to support the weight of the bag when it is loaded, or the belt can be removed when loads are lighter.

The DNA 15 Backpack is built to accommodate a mirrorless or DSLR camera with four to six lenses (up to 70-200mm f/2.8). The camera insert is sized to fit either in the bottom of the bag, or in the upper roll top compartment for convenient lens changing on location. The insert can be removed entirely to covert the bag for everyday carry.

A reinforced side pocket and security strap accommodates most popular tripod sizes. The Fidlock magnetic clip allows drop-on attachment, fast slide release and can be opened or closed with one hand. A rain cover is removable and reversible, with silver on one side to reflect the sun and black on the other side for stealth use.

A rear trolley strap slides over the extending handle of rolling luggage or equipment case for secure piggyback travel. The DNA 15 Slim Backpack is priced at $199.95.
