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.
