Ask our Experts!

The sage/khaki Discovery: Mini Photo/Laptop Messenger from Tenba is not only designed for photo use but can be used for a weekend get-away, gym bag or general purpose tote. From a photo point-of-view, it is capable of holding your DSLR, 2-3 lenses, flash and various accessories. It will also accommodate up to a 13" (33.0 cm) laptop held safely in its own rear sleeve.

The bag is fabricated from water-repellent nylon and along with its included rain cover will protect the contents during inclement weather. Tenba has waterproofed the bottom panel of the bag to protect it from ground moisture should you need to put it down. The self-healing zippers are strong and provide rapid access to the inside. There's plenty of space for extras such as your MP3 player that can be stored in the spacious front zippered pocket that contains smaller, sub-pockets for pens, cables, batteries or your cell phone. Dual side mesh airline-style pockets are provided for holding water bottles.

The internal dividers are padded and configurable so you can sculpt the bag's "guts" to suit your gear needs on any given day. All of this is supported by a wide, padded, adjustable and removable shoulder strap. Tenba has even provided a convenient trolley sleeve so you can piggyback this bag on top of your luggage cart when traveling. At a mere 2 lb (0.9 kg), this is a very lightweight bag that can serve many purposes. The photo insert and dividers are removable which means you can clear out the inside and use the bag as a general purpose tote for clothes, gym gear or school bag.

Backed by Tenba's 5-year warranty, the Discovery: Mini Photo/Laptop Messenger bag is an all-in-one solution to your photo and daily shoulder bag requirements.

        Comments about Discovery: Mini Photo/Laptop Messenger (Black/Gray):

        Here was my checklist when bag shopping:-A design as narrow as possible rather than boxy. I.e., I don't like it sticking away from my body more than necessary.-Fit under an airplane seat and still leave room for my feet. I.e., as small as possible yet still able to hold my travel kit of gear along with some basic travel stuff (passport, inflatable travel pillow, etc.)-Able to place it on the ground, and it sits up. Also, the bottom should be waterproof-Whole bag should be water resistant, and it would be nice to have a rain cover-Should be able to get to camera(s) without having to lift up the whole flap. I.e., it should have some kind of quick access from the topComfortable padded strap, but one that could be replaced if necessary. Also want a handle on the bag-A trolley strap on the bag that allows it to be attached to the handle of rolling luggage is a plus-A rear pocket to hold magazine size materials-Side pockets for water, to temporarily hold a lens, to hold my small flexible tripod if there isn't some other way to attach a tripod or collapsible monopod-Should be able to hold (ideally, have a pocket for) an 10" to 13" tablet or ultrabook-Capable of holding up to 2 bodies w/ lenses plus at least 2 other lenses.This bag does all that.

          Comments about Discovery: Mini Photo/Laptop Messenger (Sage/Khaki):

          The 'Tenba Mini Messenger Discovery' is not that 'mini'. It is a little larger than expected but that's not a bad thing for me. The bag is very light and of high quality. It fits my Pentax K3 and all 5 ltd. lenses with ease and there is still space for other stuff. The Tenba is very configurable and when the photo insert is taken out, one can use this bag as an all purpose daypack. The only thing that I did not like was the loud velcro noise when opening the flap. I covered the velcro pads with 'cut to size' counter velcro pieces, so opening the flap is now silent. I can unreservedly recommend this bag.

          Comments about Discovery: Mini Photo/Laptop Messenger (Sage/Khaki):

          Gleaming quietly among the myriad black camera cases was this beauty. I needed something light, elegant, roomy, sturdy, spacious, and classy, and not too pricey. I have everything I asked for in this bag, except the price. With a tag of over a hundred dollars, I was hesitant to buy it, but my husband convinced me that my Nikon D7100 deserved good protection. I have used it to store the camera in the middle, one extra lens on one side, a battery charger and related cables on the other. I tried putting my MacBook in there as well, but it was too tight; an iPad may be OK, though. Love the strap, the zippers are smooth and very high quality and the front pocket has many dividers to hold all and sundry items in their place: pens, stylus, memory cards, phone, keys, filters, etc. The light color makes it liable to get dirty sooner, but I can't have it both ways on that count. Love the sage color. Overall, I am very pleased with it.

            I am very happy with the bag I purchased. I purchased it for travelling so that I could carry my laptop & camera in the same bag. It really can be used to carry anything. I ended up purchasing an older model than the one that is advertised above. I purchased the one that was on the shelf.

            I was looking for a softer bag. Unlike this newer model, The area where I store my laptop is not removable. This makes it a little less adjustable but for me, I prefer fewer removable parts. I'm not sure about the rain cover that I got. There were two of them that came with the model on the shelf and I still haven't figured out how to put them on.

                  This is a good quality bag. It is very light and small. It is comfortable to wear. It is a bit small if you're trying to carry around a few lenses/speedlites, but there are bags of different sizes for different needs. This one is good for day shooting without much gear - perfect for a body and a couple of primes.

                    Finally a bag that carries camera, lenses, laptop, and sketchbook that is compact. Have used it on several excursion thus far and its perfect holds the gear can be carried around without wearing me out. The padded strap distributes the weight well. The top access to get into bag works very well allowing access to the bag without having to set it done. Back pocket holds sketchbook for easy access.

                    Only complaint is once the bag is full it looks less like a messenger bag and more like a standard box shaped camera bag.

                      Comments about Discovery: Mini Photo/Laptop Messenger (Sage/Khaki):

                      This bag is perfect for the photographer who wants to travel lightweight.

                      Highlights:
                      - The Tenba top zip for easy and quick access to camera
                      - Useful luggage strap velcros over luggage handles
                      - A good number of useful zippered pocket locations
                      - Quality construction and padding

                      Possible Negative:
                      - It may be a little bulky on smaller people

                      I struggled to decide between this and Tenba's Messenger Mini. The Messenger Mini is very similar, but is somewhat slimmer and comes in more colors. However, I've found that the Discovery's additional features far outweigh these advantages. For one, IMO the pockets are better placed and more secure because of extra zippers. Also, when I'm traveling, I want somewhere to put a water bottle, I want to be able to strap it onto luggage handles to take the weight off my shoulders, and I want a rain cover when I'm traveling in damp places. The Discovery mini can do all these and more in a compact and comfortable messenger bag.

                      The sage/khaki color is a bit darker and greener than the picture suggests, but it's still a nice neutral color. Overall, I think it's the perfect bag if you plan on traveling light with your camera and/or laptop.

                        I wanted this bag to use more for an everyday camera bag that wasn't huge but fit my camera nicely. I like my camera to be in the upright position ready to grab. This works perfectly. My 5D II with 24-70 fits upright and I can put the 70-200 upright beside it, and still have extra room, which I like because I don't care for my gear being jammed together and hard to reach. I have always used crumplers, but definitely prefer this. Love the zipper for easy access to my camera.
