The black Switch 8 from Tenba is a messenger-style camera bag that is designed to accommodate a mirrorless camera with 3-5 lenses, on-camera flash, accessories, and a tripod. Unlike most camera bags of its kind, the Switch 8's artificial leather front flap can be unzipped and detached, allowing you to replace it with optional flaps of various patterns and materials that can be selected according to your mood or taste.

Aside from being able to convey a particular choice of style, the front flap also offers the functionality of quick access to the main compartment without having to pull the flap away from the bag's front. This is accomplished with a durable, self-healing top zipper. When you wish to completely open and close the Switch 8 by peeling back or sealing its flap, a magnetic closure minimizes noise and unwanted attention. For times when additional security is needed or wanted, the flap can also be sealed with a snap-button closure. Two snap-button closures are provided, one high and one low, the higher of which is intended to be used as the bag is filled to capacity and the flap cannot as easily reach the lower snap-button closure.

While inside the Switch 8, your gear is organized and protected by foam dividers that can be repositioned within a soft, padded, brushed tricot and ripstop nylon interior. Retractable side weather flaps, in addition to a 420-denier nylon construction with water-repellant coating further help to keep the elements out and a WeatherWrap cover is included for maximum coverage. Should the bag be placed on a wet or dirty surface without its wrap, an easy-to-clean water and abrasion-resistant base panel protects the Switch 8 and its contents.

Directly under the front flap, a zippered front pocket contains two neoprene accessory pockets, an ID window, as well as a metal key clip and D-ring to securely connect memory card wallets and other attachable items. Behind the front zippered pocket is a full-length zippered pocket which can be used to hold items such as a camera flash, battery charger, or a cell phone. MOLLE-compatible side loops allow for the attachment of accessory pouches to either side of the bag, and MOLLE loops on the bottom allow you to bring your tripod along while maintaining the Switch 8's compact form factor.

Two side mesh pockets provide visible and easily accessible storage spaces, while a rear, padded zippered sleeve fits an iPad Mini or similar sized 8" tablet, and is also suitable for carrying a passport, map, or other travel documents.

Constructed for a mirrorless camera with 3-5 lenses, on-camera flash, accessories, and a tripod, this bag offers abundant carrying capability within a compact form factor.
A removable front flap and multiple replacement options allow you to customize this bag to your mood or tastes.
Protective foam dividers can be repositioned within a soft, padded, brushed tricot and ripstop nylon interior.
A quick access top zipper above the main compartment allows you to reach for your camera and lenses quickly and discreetly. Within the main compartment are two neoprene pockets for lens caps or filters as well as two elastic loops for pens or carabiners.
A magnetic closure allows the front flap to be opened with a minimal amount of sound. Snap closures may be used to lock the front flap for additional security and are provided at various heights along the front of the bag so that the flap can be comfortably closed even as the bag is filled to capacity.
Two side mesh pockets provide visible and easily accessible storage spaces.
A zippered front pocket under the front flap includes neoprene accessory pockets, an ID window, as well as a metal key clip and D-ring to securely connect memory card wallets and other compatible items.
A full-length zippered pocket behind the zippered front pocket can be used to hold items such as a camera flash, battery charger, a cell phone, or a map.
A rear, padded zippered sleeve fits an iPad Mini or similar sized 8" tablet. It is also suitable for keeping a passport, map, or other travel documents secure and accessible.
MOLLE-compatible side loops allow for the attachment of accessory pouches to the outside of the bag, and MOLLE loops on the bottom provide a place to connect a tripod.
Side weather flaps help seal out the rain from reaching the contents of the bag.
For extra weather protection, a removable and reversible WeatherWrap cover is included. One side is silver-colored so that it can reflect heat in addition to blocking moisture.
An easy-to-clean, water and abrasion-resistant base panel protects the bag and its contents if placed on a wet or dirty surface.
A shoulder strap with integrated non-slip shoulder pad provides comfort and convenience while carrying this bag over longer periods of time.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great option for mirrorless There is no perfect bag, but the Switch 8 checks a great many boxes on my wanted list. First off, the faux leather look of the flap isn't near so purse-like as I'd feared (I'm really more of 'field and stream' kind of guy, and none of the options, including 'urban camo', appealed much). It was the size, organization and features that caught my attention, and I'm quite happy with what the bag delivers. I hate the sound of velcro and so the magnetic flap is great. The button snaps are OK, but hard to find and click when the bag is on your side. The top access zipper is a great idea, but not quite as easy to use as I'd hoped with a longer lens and/or wider body. Although the bag LOOKS only a bit bigger than my Domke F-5XB, it is just enough bigger and so much better organized that it holds much more. E-M5 MkII with ECG-2 grip and Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 face down in the center (hood in shooting position) two smaller primes or small zooms (9-18, 35-100 f/4-5.6) on each side, separated by supplied dividers. Optionally, a taller lens (75mm, for example) could take up one side. That's up to five lenses. In the front are two pockets with plenty of room for cards, batteries, cleaning stuff, my cell phone, etc. The back pocket won't fit my larger tablet (I know that going in) but is still great for maps, travel docs, etc. On the sides are stretchy pockets big enough for a water bottle (another 'must have', for me). The permanently-attached shoulder strap could use a better, wider and/or add-on shoulder pad. It fits me fine cross-body (5'8) but there isn't a lot of room left on the strap for a much larger person. Really, I'd like to give it 4.5 stars. The strap and lack of a more field and stream cover option are my only nit-picks.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT little bag! the Switch 8 Camera Bag (Black) by Tenba This bag is great! Not too big nor small. Perfect for a mirrorless camera and two lenses if you like.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good bag for your mirrorless camera I had used the Tenba Switch 7, but needed the additional space for my external mike. The bag easily holds my Lumix G7 along with either another mirrorless camera or 3-4 lenses. The back pocket can be used to hold an additional lens or I'm my case my external mike. The permanent shoulder strap was comfortable to wear for a full day of shooting. The magnetic closure and the zipper top make it easy to remove the camera.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice, well thought out bag! This bag works great for my Sony a6000, was too small for an a7ii. Pockets and internal space are well designed with plenty of space.
