Tenba Air Case Roller 21 Overview

The Roadie Air Case Roller 21 from Tenba is a rolling camera case that is designed to be stylish, meet the carry-on requirements for most international as well as US airlines, and is built from ultra-durable, shock-absorbing components. Should the need arise, the Roadie Air Case Roller 21 and its contents can be safely shipped or checked-in at the airport. Crafted using a thoughtful design and minimal branding, this case also features a distinctive appearance without drawing unwanted attention to the equipment inside.

A large, main compartment with adjustable dividers can hold a complete kit for many photographers, while the interior of the main compartment lid features four, clear mesh panels for easy identification of their contents. The Roadie Air Case Roller 21 can fit two, gripped DSLR camera bodies with a 400mm f/2.8 lens or eight to ten smaller lenses, along with flashes and accessories.

Together with the adjustable dividers, a removable insert is provided that can also help partition equipment inside the Roadie Air Case Roller 21. Upon reaching one's destination, the insert is transferable to a separate shoulder bag or backpack to further cushion a camera, plus two to three lenses for on-the-go use. When used with a separately-available Tenba Tools Packlite Travel Bag for BYOB 10, the removable insert installs with a precise fit.

Four handles are included for flexibility while transporting or moving the case, a two-stage telescoping top handle, a leather-trimmed non-telescoping top handle, a side handle, and a bottom handle that makes it easier to pick up and place the case into airplane overhead bins or into car trunks. Additionally, an integrated add-a-bag strap consolidates other luggage along the front of the case for easy transport of multiple carry-ons through airports, hotels, or parking lots.

For peace-of-mind in crowded settings, a built-in TSA-approved combination lock secures the main compartment zipper. To chain the case to an immovable object such as a pole, an integrated, braided-steel side cable is included along with an additional TSA-approved combination lock.

Nylon construction throughout provides the bag with a high degree of weather resistance and enhances its durability, which is further complemented by wheel housings that help protect the reinforced corners of the case from impacts to escalators and curbs. A rain cover is included for even more protection from the elements when needed, and if they wear out over time, the wheels, wheel housings, foot stands, and telescoping top handle are user-replaceable.

Tenba Air Cases feature a multi-layered skeleton of air-channeled plastic panels, high-density foam, molded framing components, and a reinforced outer shell. They are strong enough to stand on, even when empty, and are built to meet or exceed Air Transport Association shipping standards.

What is the purpose of the ring on the front of the Tenba Rollers? Seems like it is in an odd position for attachments or luggage tag. Thanks in advance.
Asked by: James
The ring on the front of the Tenba Roadie Air Case Roller 21 is used for luggage tags, as well as other possible identification displays when working as a roadie.

question

Will the case carry 2 full frame 500mm F4 300mm F4 TC and a small lens along with laptop ?
Asked by: Suraj
The Roadie Air Case has some design changes that are required in order to make it shippable and airline checkable. One of those is that there is no laptop sleeve on the front since the laptop would be crushed in transit when buried under checked airline luggage in the belly of a plane, or boxes in the back of a UPS truck. This is the only Roadie without a laptop sleeve.In regards to your question about the lenses, both should fit easily. The most common 500mm 4.0 lenses have a diameter of 5.75 inches, and the case depth is 6 inches.

question

What is difference between Tenba Rodie roller 21 Temba rodie 21 hybrid and Tenba rodie roller air case? I cant find any details anywhere ? I am looking for a roller bag to carry 2 full frame bodies 500mm F4 300mm F4 TC couple of small lenses? At the same time I can take the roller as carry on or check in without worrying about damage to my expensive equipment
Asked by: Suraj
They all have the same exterior dimensions and are international carry-on compatible.The Roadie 21 and Hybrid 21 have the same rigid construction and are nearly identical. The Roadie 21 has a pocket for a battery on the back, and the Hybrid has backpack straps. That is the only difference. Both will fit a laptop in the front sleeve. The Roadie Air Case 21 is the only case of its kind in the industry. It has a super-rigid, patented wall construction that allows it to be shipped or checked as luggage, just like a typical hard case, but at a fraction of the weight. It has similar features to the other Roadies zipper lock, security cable, tripod pocket, add-a-bag strap etc. but it does not have a laptop sleeve in the front. However, not only is it the only Roadie that is checkable as luggage, it is the only case like it in the world. If you check YouTube or Vimeo or the Tenba website, you can watch a video that shows the difference between the three models. All three will fit the gear you described.

question

Can it fit 2 x Gripped Bodies (D810/D850) comfortably with all the lenses? The photos shown seem to just have 1 gripped body, and 1 non-gripped body on its side, so I don't know how 2 pro bodies can fit well
Asked by: Diego
Depends how many lenses you carry. It re-configures quite easily so you can fit 2 pro cameras in the bag but you'll loose the lens space of course. It's a great sturdy bag and rolls easily. I wouldn't trade mine.

question

There's no mention of a compartment for laptop (or laptop size). Please clarify. ?
Asked by: david p.
Correct. No laptop size panel on this model. The sides are rigid for shipping or checking as baggage so they do not have a sleeve for laptops since it could be damaged. Since it was more important for me to have a sturdy carrier, I do not mind that it does not have a place for a laptop. It's a very sturdy case.
