Tenba Axis 20L Overview

The black Axis 20L Backpack from Tenba is modeled after tactical military backpacks and is designed to comfortably and securely carry your mobile photo studio. Its spacious main compartment features an adjustable partition system that holds a DSLR with a 300mm f/2.8 lens, five to seven additional lenses, and a shoe mount flash or a folding drone kit. Users of mirrorless camera systems can fit up to five to seven lenses along with a camera, plus a flash or a folding drone kit, as well as a backup camera.

Complete access to the main compartment is provided by a rear-facing zippered panel with a 180° downward opening, while two additional zippered openings allow items closest to the top and the wearer's left side to be reached. By rotating the Axis 20L Backpack from one's back to front with its left side facing upward, the wearer can open this bag without having to fully remove it. To help maximize the versatility of the Axis 20L Backpack, MOLLE-compatible loops are distributed along the front panel and side opening. These MOLLE-compatible loops allow for the attachment of MOLLE accessory pouches and containers, including separately available Tenba Tools lens capsules, battery pouches, and memory card wallets. Additionally, the MOLLE-compatible loops include reflective stitching that enhances safety by helping to ensure that the wearer remains visible to vehicular traffic under low-light conditions.

The front panel also unzips to reveal multiple organizational pockets and offers capacity for hard drives, a smartphone, pens, notebooks, or a map. The inside of the top zipped opening includes a small pocket for items that need to be accessed quickly and conveniently, such as portable batteries, camera filters, or other small electronics. Along the inside of the rear-zippered panel is the Axis 20L Backpack's 15" laptop sleeve which features a touch-tab retaining strap.

The Axis 20L Backpack can be carried using its built-in top handle, or by its padded shoulder straps which can be adjusted upward or downward for a better fit. For heavy loads, this backpack's removable waist belt transfers weight to the hips for additional comfort, while the sternum strap further limits unintentional shifting around the wearer. Along the front of the Axis 20L Backpack are two MOLLE-compatible compression straps that can each hold and secure a tripod, monopod, or trekking pole; while a large side pocket along the wearer's right side can accommodate a water bottle or another similarly sized item.

Built to be weather resistant, the Axis 20L Backpack also includes a seam-sealed cover for use under heavy rain.

The Tenba Axis 20L: Is the zipper the ONLY thing that keeps the main compartment closed? I don't see a safety strap. Seems like a lot of trust (and stress) to put on that zipper.
Asked by: burke
True, There are dozens of manufactures that use a similar design. But almost all of them have the straps behind the zipper. The way this bag is designed, the zipper is carrying all the weight. This is the only issue that has me wondering if it will fail.

Will this fit under an airplane seat? The dimensions are bigger than the sizes for personal items on flights.

I have not had any issues. It is a tight fit if you are on a small regional jet, but it does fit if not over packed. I can fit this and a small computer bag under the seats of most commercial jets.
