Tenba DNA 13 overview

  • 1Description

The dark copper DNA 13 from Tenba is a versatile messenger bag that can hold a mirrorless camera with 4-5 lenses, or a DSLR with 2-3 lenses. The camera and lenses fit inside a removable padded insert in the main compartment, and a tablet and laptop up to 13" store inside padded pockets 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 13 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 13 reviews

    DNA 13 Messenger Bag (Dark Copper) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 41.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This bag is great, not just for photography gear I bought this bag on a NYC trip and haven't stopped using it since. It fits my Sony mirrorless with zoom, and all the stuff I brought on a day, like water, a book, bose headphones, an iPad and some food. Its top zip proved to be the dream feature: my experience with messenger bags has always meant struggling with that top flap while trying to pull out (and especially putting back) a camera. The top zip really provides a smooth entry and is discreet. I hardly ever open the full flap anymore. The bag is sturdy, zips are smooth, fabric is weather sealed and all in all I feel this bag doesn't have that much of a photo gear look, which I felt comfortable with.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just right. This bag checked all the boxes for me: attractive, top handle, luggage strap to attach to carry-on roller, removable camera insert, holds 13 MacBook, and quick access zipper. MINOR disappointments: 1) the magnetic clasps on the main flap are inventive but seem to often unhook and/or loosen unintentionally. However, the quiet velcro inside is more than adequate to keep things secure should this happen. 2) I didn't realize the bag would even come with an all weather cover, but it would have been amazing if it was built in and concealable like many bags that rhyme with PoweLro. As it is, the cover is a separate piece waiting to get lost.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a great bag! I searched for and researched several bags before I ended up purchasing the Tenba DNA 13. There were some very specific features I was looking for: I wanted to be able to carry my laptop but didn't want the bag to be any bigger than it needed to be, I wanted to be able to use the bag for something other than a camera bag when needed, I wanted something stylish and professional, I wanted durability and also something that was well designed and easy to use. This bag fit the bill on paper and I confirmed that once I received it and put it into use. Tenba makes some great products and B&H always offers amazing service!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from TENBA DNA 13 Messenger Bag I chose Tenba DNA 13 for more practical reason as I wanted to carry my D7200 with 18-140 and 70-200 VR II lenses together with my Macbook and full size iPad and utilise this bag on my travels - The best feature of the bag is the top opening which is very convenient and safe. I travel a lot hence I wanted a practical and functional bag and not too bulky. The best choice I made with so many choices available in the market place.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Design I am a professional cameraman. I use this bag to hold my lenses and laptop on location. I carry it as a shoulder bag on flights and my camera in another bag as carryon baggage. This allows me to always know that my valuable equipment is with me. The bag has some serious velcro on the main flap which holds it together even when not held with the magnetic clips. I like the zipper opening on top so you can get inside without opening the main velcro flap. It really is worth the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GET IT well made--packs easily--fabulous neck strap with great padded easily adjustible collar--best and easiest closure snaps to use on any bag I have seen--my me foto backpacker tripod fits well in the side pocket (better than having the tripod in the closure flap were it would interfere with easy access to the contents inside of the bag--the closure flaps on this bag give good weather protection--has so many useful inside pockets that I cannot fill them up--the swivel attachment of the strap to the bag work well to prevent annoying twisting of the sholder strap--I can get all my equipment in this bag with easy access--best bag purchase I have ever made

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bag! I replaced my crumpler bag for this one because of the easy access on the top. After spending hours in YouTube looking for the best camera bag that can fit in my Surface Pro and mirrorless, this I can say is the perfect one. The removable camera packets are helpful, can fit my two lenses, the camera, and probably in the future an external flash. I would be getting another one, though the smaller model for my photo shoots.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bag for me. I use this as a camera bag/work briefcase. I wanted a smaller bag that a 15 size so I woudn't over load weight wise (itend to over pack). I also wanted a messenger style bag with a top zipper access for ease of use while in the city and when traveling. What I carry in it back and forth to the office: my Surface Pro 4, a full frame camera and 28-105 lens and extra lens, a Ricoh GR2 and a smaller point and shoot for work, note pads pens lens wipes, rocket blower. It holds a lot of stuff and is comfortable and easy to customize. Fully loaded for photography it carries my camera and zoom lens, a couple of primes, and a flash or mini tripod and accessories. It looks like a briefcase and the silent velcro closure is a nice feature. The only downside for me is that when fully loaded it is difficult to remove the laptop via the top zipper access.
