Tenba has launched their first major enthusiast/prosumer collection called Mixx. This new collection comprises a broad range of bags—from small pouches and top load bags for point and shoot cameras and single SLR setups, to shoulder bags and a daypack to fit larger camera systems. Mixx is both colorfully styled and incredibly lightweight, and all bags maintain Tenba’s dedication to professional quality construction, materials and hardware.

Each Mixx product is lighter weight at its size and capacity than any similar product Tenba has ever offered. This was a major goal from the beginning of the collection design. The materials and hardware used in each bag meet the “no compromise” level that has continued to be Tenba’s signature, including YKK zippers and Duraflex clips. Top Loads, Shoulder Bags and the Daypack all include Tenba’s exclusive WeatherWrap, the fastest deploying all-weather cover around.

The Mixx collection includes three pouch sizes, the largest of which was designed to be a perfect fit for the Canon G9 and G10. For an SLR with a single lens there are two sizes of Top Load bags that can be use with the supplied shoulder strap or attached to a belt. Small and large sized Shoulder Bags fit cameras with extra lenses, flash and accessories, And finally, the Daypack is a comfortable and supportive way to carry both a camera system and the other items you might need during a full day of shooting, like food, an umbrella and a jacket.

Mixx products range in (manufacturer’s suggested) retail price from $11.95 to $74.95. For more information, visit Tenba.com

A couple of years ago, I took my mother on a trip to Tokyo, Japan. I planned this trip as a way to give my family an opportunity to get out of their day-to-day routines and travel across the world to gain a new perspective on things. Our trip was full of fun and exciting excursions, and a few meaningful experiences. One of these experiences took place at the Kotokuin Temple in Kamakura, Japan.
