Tenba DNA 11 overview

  • 1Description

The dark copper DNA 11 from Tenba is a versatile messenger bag that can hold a DSLR with 2-3 lenses, or a mirrorless camera with 3-5 lenses. The camera and lenses fit inside a removable padded insert in the main compartment, and a tablet or laptop up to 11" store inside a padded pocket on the bag's interior.

The tapered flap covers the main compartment, providing protection from the elements, and closes via hook-and-loop closures as well as magnetic clips. A removable padded insert provides dividers for organizing your camera gear, and two pockets for smaller accessories. When the insert is removed, the bag is quickly converted from a camera bag to a general-purpose bag that can be used for carrying books, clothes, business documents, and more.

The DNA 11 is made from 600-denier helix with a water-repellent exterior coating. The interior is made from ripstop nylon and brushed tricot. The bag can be worn as a messenger bag with the shoulder strap, or can be carried like a briefcase by the top handle.

Two elastic micro-mesh pockets on the side of the bag, four slip-in pockets on the front of the bag, and two zippered pockets on the flap ensure you'll have plenty of storage.
An adjustable security strap that connects to D-rings anchors the bag in place on your back to keep it from sliding while riding a bicycle.
For extra weather protection, a removable and reversible WeatherWrap cover is included.
A quick-access zipper allows access to your gear without opening the front flap and exposing your equipment to would-be thieves.
A non-slip shoulder pad grips onto your shoulder, while the strap's webbing freely flows through the pad for smooth movement of the bag from front to back.

    Tenba DNA 11 reviews

    DNA 11 Messenger Bag (Dark Copper) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 43.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Backpack Addition I used to have a camera backpack, but that didn't work very well with traveling light. I would end up having two backpacks, but with this messenger bag, I can let it hang lower and it acts as a backpack addition. I can currently hold a small 50mm prime lens, 18-55mm kit lens, and a 55-250mm telephoto lens in the bag along with my 7D body. That also include my camera strap and spare battery. There's a quick access zipper but if I need to do more, I can open the entire bag. There's also a sports strap that I can use when I go biking with my camera. It's a great bag thus far.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Well Thought Out Messenger Bag If you are looking for a camera bag that really doesn't look like one, the Tenba DNA maybe the one for you. I wanted a bag that was comfortable, stylish, fit my gear that I needed for street photography, and didn't scream nice camera in here! I have a Sony A7 and a Nikon D5200. Both work well with plenty of pockets to store things. Very nicely made as Tenba bags are, and not heavy. One of the best things on the bag is the quiet velcro! Yes, I said quiet velcro! Just pull down on the flap instead of pulling straight up, and it comes off MUCH more quietly! The magnetic snaps are great as well. I am totally satisfied with my purchase! Check it out! P.S. I love the top zipper so that I don't have to open the flap all the time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing design and functionality I have been looking for a small messenger-style camera bag and I have looked at Lowepro, Thinktank and other companies lineup. Tenba has recently released their DNA messenger bag line and it's worthy of consideration and purchase. I love the professional design and the well-thought-out functions of the bag. The DNA 11 was perfect to hold my D600, 28-300mm & 16-35mm lenses, 1 prime lens (50mm) and a large flash (Nissin Di866 MKII). You can also remove the padding and convert it to a sleek looking messenger bag as well. When I received the product, I notice one of the clips of the strap was broken. I contacted Tenba and they were quick to response and send in a replacement. A major plus for the company that sticks by their products and its warranties.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Didn't want just another cheap bag. So I broke down and purchased a new DSLR. In a few months my wife and I will be taking a dream vacation so the camera was a must. I wanted a camera bag that was easy to carry, won't be too large and would look like a camera bag. This bag is a home run in my opinion. I have a Canon t6s, 18-200, 70-300 and a 50mms lens with room left over! Also have my cables, memory cards and all I need. Could even put a laptop but I'll be taking a tablet. This is a very well made bag. Has pockets everywhere. The shoulder strap is padded and doesn't slide down and off your shoulder. It stays put. Overall, I am very happy. It's the perfect size, about the size of a woman's full sized purse. No trouble having it on my lap if needed. The only trouble I have with it is over packing it! With so much room, how can I not take everything!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Camera Bag! I got this bag with the 7D mark II as an EDU deal. It is a great looking bag and has nice features, including a rain cover. They give plenty of inserts for dividing up your gear and there are several other pockets for miscellaneous items. I have a few other bags, including a larger camera backpack, but I usually end up feeling weighed down by it. I generally find myself gravitating towards this bag for daily use. It is compact and lightweight and can fit everything I would need for most shooting situations. I have fit up to three lenses with a camera body. It even barely fits my 400mm f/5.6 prime. The only downside is that the messenger style bag, while the strap is nicely padded, can get a little uncomfortable after long periods of time.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful design, but may not last beautiful design, flexible, looks great, very comfortable strap, but some materials started to show wear after a few uses - velcro stichting fell off. love the easy access from above via zipper.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fit for Olympus I purchased this bag to carry my Olympus OM-D E-M1, three pro lenses (the 7-14, 12-40, and 40-150, plus the x1.4 teleconverter), and a round filters wallet. Everything fits without being either too tight nor too loose. Pockets are plenty of room for spare batteries, memory cards, and cleaning cloths. The outside pockets handle a pair of gloves for chilly mornings/evenings and a rocket blower. When I want, I can also fit my rectangular filters and adapters, and/or my iPad inside the bag. I love the zippered top for quick access of the camera. All in all, I'm very pleased with this bag.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great bag This is a great bag for daily carrying of my Mirrorless camera system. It looks great, and is totally passable as a normal messenger bag. I was able to use the dividers to create a little area for my camera and two extra lenses on one side of the bag, while also leaving about 60% of the space in the bag empty for things like hoodies, books, or whatever I'm carrying at the time. the quick top zipper allows for lightning fast access in a discrete way. The only drawback is it could be a little bigger, I would have gone with the DNA 13 if I had seen the sizes prior to buying.
