Tenba is announcing the world’s first packable, self-stowing camera bag. Packlite bags can be easily stored inside larger camera bags, backpacks and rolling cases, or utilized separately when a smaller bag if desired.
“Every photographer and filmmaker has been there; you’re carrying two cameras and six lenses in a large bag, and you wonder, ‘How can I dump most of this and just carry a camera with two lenses?'” says Peter Waisnor, Vice President of Tenba. “Packlite Travel Bags give you that option, without taking up any space or adding weight to your larger bag.”
The bag may also be used as a simple day bag for personal items such as food and clothing. A compact, collapsible, lightweight design, it self-stows in a built-in, mesh, side pocket, which closes with a cinch cord. The bag's primary function is portability. Easily packed, and requiring a minimal amount of space, the bag allows photographers to shift and reconfigure gear from a larger bag for occasions when they require less gear. Such occasions might include a simple photo shoot, short hike, or social event. A side mesh pocket holds a small water bottle or accessory. Your Packlite may be worn from the shoulder or cross-body with the wide, adjustable, shoulder strap.
Packlite bags are built with durable, water-repellent silicone-coated ripstop nylon, strong enough to withstand any outdoor adventure. The bags also feature a quick access zipper, reinforced stitching and a mesh side pocket for a water bottle. If not in use, the bag can be packed up entirely into the side pocket to be stowed away or clipped to the outside of a larger bag.
The Tenba Packlite bags are available on B&H from $19.95.
