The black Roadie II HDSLR/Video Backpack from Tenba is a serious backpack for serious shooters. Whether for stills, video or audio recording, this pack has room for all the gear you might want and then some. This is a very durable and well laid out pack built for maximum load and styled for comfort and protection.

It's rated to hold your two pro DSLRs, 6-8 lenses (up to a 300mm f/2.8), monopod, shotgun mic, audio recorder and phones. Specifically, it will accommodate your Canon or Nikon pro body or video cameras such as a RED (Epic, Scarlet), Canon C300 and Sony. There's also room for your 17" laptop held in its own pocket since you'll always shoot and need to download and transmit ASAP. Dual side pockets are provided for your monopod and shotgun mic. In addition, storage space is plentiful including interior padded dividers to configure the guts of the pack to suit your gear and keep it separated and organized. A front accessory pocket is for your small stuff that you always need rapid access to. Side cargo pockets are padded and also readily accessible for additional accessories.

This pack contains two "wow" features. First, it contains two top butterfly flaps that provide instant access to your audio gear. This will facilitate keeping your photo and audio gear separated so there will never be a need to fumble through the interior to retrieve specific equipment. You can also, if needed, access you photo gear through these two flaps. The value here is that you can retrieve gear without having to open the entire pack, exposing the contents to anyone in the vicinity. Second, The main compartment is hidden against your shoulder harness and accessed through the rear of the pack. This is a clever security feature designed to make sure no one can suddenly unzip your pack and grab gear. With your pack on, you can navigate through airports and crowds secure in the knowledge that no one will be able to pilfer any gear. Heavy-duty accessory loops on the sides allow you to attach optional pouches, carabiners or other small gear.

The Roadie II HDSLR/Video Backpack is made with rugged, water-repellent 1680D ballistic nylon with a brushed tricot ripstop nylon interior that is gear-friendly and won't mar the fine finish of your equipment. The bottom panel has been made waterproof if you need to set it down on the ground.

Carrying the Roadie II is a breeze with its contoured, adjustable expedition-grade harness and wide waist belt. Since the pack holds a ton of gear, the high density foam keeps you comfortable while out and about. A top grade grab handle is also included for rapid access from your car or off a luggage rack.

Even though this is a water-repellent pack, Tenba has included a rain cover since outdoor shooters often come up against foul weather. As a bonus, the pack also contains a very handy 10 pocket media wallet for SD and CF cards. Finally, since Tenba knows a day in the field does not always leave you near the nearest kiosk, a collapsible water bottle holder has been built into the belt. The pack weighs in at a reasonably lightweight 5.5 lb-excellent for a pack that can hold so much gear. The Roadie II is made by Tenba, a company world renowned for its protective bags and cases and backed by their five-year warranty.

Monopod/Shotgun Mic Pockets
Pockets on both sides of the bag hold a monopod and shotgun mic
Top-Access Audio Gear Compartment
Butterfly flaps on the top of the backpack allow quick access to audio gear and accessories like headphones, lav mics, recorders and anything else that you need to get at easily without opening the main camera compartment. The top compartment can also allow access to the main camera compartment, which allows larger equipment (bodies or lenses) to be removed without exposing the main camera compartment to strangers nearby
Expedition-Grade Harness
Contoured shoulder harness and waist belt provide comfort and support when carrying large camera systems. High-density foam padding won't compress or break down over time or with heavy use

A front padded sleeve protects a laptop up to 17" and is quick and easy to open at airport security
Secure, Rear Camera Access

Waterproof Bottom Panel
Keeps the bag dry and protected if you have to put it down on a wet surface

        Comments about Tenba Roadie II HDSLR/Video Backpack (Black):

        This will hold a ton of stuff, its design makes it comfortable to wear even when packed with gear thats over 30lbs.

        I am able to put in everything I need to shoot (minus a tripod) which includes

        one BMPC4k, 2 Cine Primes, 2 V-Mount batteries, 4 SSDs, a shoulder rig, follow focus, field monitor, shot gun mic, shock mount, zoom h-6, on camera light, and other random things.

        The main compartment is fully customizable so the deviders can be adjusted to your needs.

        My only complaint is that the internal pockets are all very tight so anything thats to bulky wont fit in there. They are mostly good for cords, screws, and other smaller items.

        Also this will fit in over head bins on airplanes even when packed to breaking point.

              The Tenba Roadie II is such an amazing bag - I've had loads of bags in my time as photographer, but this one beats it all to be honest.
              It's not a small bag, but compared to the Löwerpro Vertex AW200 which has been my bag until now, it is...
              So much space and it still is that compact.
              The feel of the bag is that it's very very durable.
              Expensive bag but really worth the money.

              Comments about Tenba Roadie II HDSLR/Video Backpack (Black):

              I've been using this backpack for about two weeks now and have gone on four shoots with it. It's taking me a little bit of time wrapping my brain around the "storage is on the back" concept, but I think I'm going to end up liking it.

              The pack is plenty big with lots of great waterproof zipper pouches built in. There are some really nice touches - the velcro side pouches are perfect for keeping a roll of gaffer tape or a coil of XLR cable. There's a pouch that holds a water bottle on the hip strap and the build quality is top notch. But my favorite part - and what sold me on this pack over the others I was considering - is the audio gear storage pockets on the top. It perfectly fits my Tascam recorder, a pair of headphones and my Rode Video Mic Pro.

              My only complaint - if I have to find one - is that the zipper pulls are a bit long and sometimes get in the way of zipping up a compartment. But that's splitting hairs.

              I love this pack.

                Comments about Tenba Roadie II HDSLR/Video Backpack (Black):

                Spending 24 years in the military traveling all over the globe I needed a new solid backpack that didn't scream "I'm a camera bag, steal me!" I wanted a bag that would secure my camera gear and not look conspicuous. For me, the Tenba Roadie II is that bag. What sold me on the Tenba was the fact that this backpack stores all your lenses and camera bodies in the REAR of the bag. This means nothing gets swiped while you're wearing the thing because the flap and zippers are against your back! It's very well constructed and probably would pass "mil-specs."

                I thought about the Tamrac 5588 but it's a little bit bigger and heavier than what I was looking for. Along with my Nikon D800 and old FE camera, I have room for my Nikkor 70-200mm VR, 85mm, 50mm, 16-35mm, and 15mm fisheye. The camera/lens compartment is very well insulated and has a 1.5 inch thick padded outer wall inside the backpack. The front and side compartments on the pack have overlapping eyelets on the zippers which allows you to place a small lock to secure other expensive gear like a laptop, battery chargers, memory cards, etc.

                The backpack is very comfortable to wear. The harness, waist belt and back flap are very well padded. I like the rainfly that's stored in the side pocket for those inclement weather days you find yourself out in the field.

                            Really amazing backpack, great quality and tons of room for things. I built out my gear for a documentary and this had room for almost everything. I laid it on its face on all kinds of surfaces and didn't even get a scratch or scuff. Wheels might be the only thing I would add, but then it wouldn't be as comfortable on your back. Also this thing gets heavy so prepare yourself. Squats!

                            Comments about Tenba Roadie II HDSLR/Video Backpack (Black):

                            I need a back pack to be water resistance, lightweight, durable, comfortable, have enough room to carry all of my equipments and can carry that amount of load without the feel of it falling apart. Let start from the outside, the material it made out off is really nice; It is all black, simple layout, water resistance, and practicably bullet proof. It is not the lightest weight back pack by any mean, but what you get are thick, durable, and comfortable materials in return. I rather have a little more weight for extra soft padding to protect my valuable equipments in case of someone bump into you, accidental drop, or on a bumpy road where your equipment could hit one another. The back pack main access compartment is in the back of the back pack, where you press your back against when you carry it. Doing so, your equipments won't easily fall out when the zippers are broken or something happen because your back is pressing against it. It also protect the equipments from thiefs, if I was to go somewhere crowded or thiefs in general. The shoulder straps won't get in the way if you lay the back pack flat but the cover will; The cover like to stand instead of laying.You can also access the main compartment through the top by removing the top inside divider. This backpack can hold laptop up to 17", but unfortunately that only goes to Apple size style Mac Book. My Asus G73JH is too fat for it; This laptop is a little bigger than 17" so is not the backpack problem. The 2 slide pockets can hold a long shot gun mic or a monopod. The shoulder padding are really thick, but really soft and comfortable with many way to adjust for your comfort. It also come with a media wallet and a rain cover; The back pack is already water repellent so use the cover on yourself =). My only complaint is no tripod holder and the main compartment cover. Why spend so much on a back pack when there are cheaper one? Well, video and camera material is mostly 10x as much. I don't see the problem with spending a little more to protect asset 10x as much. This is made out of high quality materials; It's like Gucci for clothings. I have not try the bullet proof part yet, but let me know if it work.
