For traveling photographers and videographers, the hard plastic case is an essential piece of kit in order to get equipment from point A to point B safely. Tenba is looking to improve upon this experience with the Air Case Attaché collection.
Tenba claims that their Air Cases weigh up for 35 percent less than your average plastic hard case, but can withstand up to 400 pounds stacked on top. Other benefits pointed out are stronger, smoother rolling wheels, more customization on the inside and softer padding, luggage handles with more height for better comfort, and zippered interior pockets for better organization.
Camera gear is heavy, and when traveling it’s always been a big downside that you have to bring more weight into the mix just to protect what you already are carrying on the inside. I think the Tenba Air Cases may be worth checking out for anyone trying to duck transportation weight restrictions or chiropractor visits.
The Air Cases come in six different sizes, three of which meet most airline carry-on regulations. You can check out these new cases on B&H to find the one that suits your needs. Prices range from $149.95 for a case that can fit a DSLR, six lenses, and a flash, to $399.95 for a large, everything-but-the-kitchen-sink case.
