Tenba Convertible Photo Sling Bag

Tenba has announced the addition of the first in a new series of Convertible Photo Sling Bags to its growing Shootout collection. According to the company, the new Slings are unique in their ability to be converted from a "quick-draw" shooting bag to a long lens bag configuration, offering significantly more versatility, especially to sports and wildlife/outdoor photographers. Tenba says its new line brings a variety of other new, innovative and exclusive features to the sling-style bag category.

The Sling Bag is carried on the back, but with a single, contoured and padded cross-chest strap rather than two shoulder straps. This design allows it to be instantly swung around in front of the photographer, providing immediate access to a primary camera with mounted lens, for fast shooting right out of the bag. Movable padded walls within the bag allow the "quick-draw" compartment to be fitted precisely to the main camera/lens combination, and also create additional spaces for extra bodies, lenses and accessories. These walls can be completely removed, turning the Sling into a vertically-oriented long lens bag. In this configuration, a pro D/SLR with mounted telephoto--up to 400mm for the medium Sling (depending on specific equipment used)--is loaded straight down through the bag via the large top door.

Other features include Tenba's fast-deploying WeatherWrap rain cover, a strap front-mounted phone/audio pouch, auxiliary security strap, and a variety of accessory pockets and compartments. Despite the special materials and arsenal of features, the Sling weighs in at only 35-46 ounces, depending on configuration. The first model to ship will be a medium Sling, sized for the most popular equipment and applications. It will be followed quickly by a smaller version for more compact setups. Delivery of Tenba's Shootout Convertible Sling series is scheduled to begin in August.
