The black Roadie II HDSLR/Video Backpack from Tenba is a serious backpack for serious shooters. Whether for stills, video or audio recording, this pack has room for all the gear you might want and then some. This is a very durable and well laid out pack built for maximum load and styled for comfort and protection.

It's rated to hold your two pro DSLRs, 6-8 lenses (up to a 300mm f/2.8), monopod, shotgun mic, audio recorder and phones. Specifically, it will accommodate your Canon or Nikon pro body or video cameras such as a RED (Epic, Scarlet), Canon C300 and Sony. There's also room for your 17" laptop held in its own pocket since you'll always shoot and need to download and transmit ASAP. Dual side pockets are provided for your monopod and shotgun mic. In addition, storage space is plentiful including interior padded dividers to configure the guts of the pack to suit your gear and keep it separated and organized. A front accessory pocket is for your small stuff that you always need rapid access to. Side cargo pockets are padded and also readily accessible for additional accessories.

This pack contains two "wow" features. First, it contains two top butterfly flaps that provide instant access to your audio gear. This will facilitate keeping your photo and audio gear separated so there will never be a need to fumble through the interior to retrieve specific equipment. You can also, if needed, access you photo gear through these two flaps. The value here is that you can retrieve gear without having to open the entire pack, exposing the contents to anyone in the vicinity. Second, The main compartment is hidden against your shoulder harness and accessed through the rear of the pack. This is a clever security feature designed to make sure no one can suddenly unzip your pack and grab gear. With your pack on, you can navigate through airports and crowds secure in the knowledge that no one will be able to pilfer any gear. Heavy-duty accessory loops on the sides allow you to attach optional pouches, carabiners or other small gear.

The Roadie II HDSLR/Video Backpack is made with rugged, water-repellent 1680D ballistic nylon with a brushed tricot ripstop nylon interior that is gear-friendly and won't mar the fine finish of your equipment. The bottom panel has been made waterproof if you need to set it down on the ground.

Carrying the Roadie II is a breeze with its contoured, adjustable expedition-grade harness and wide waist belt. Since the pack holds a ton of gear, the high density foam keeps you comfortable while out and about. A top grade grab handle is also included for rapid access from your car or off a luggage rack.

Even though this is a water-repellent pack, Tenba has included a rain cover since outdoor shooters often come up against foul weather. As a bonus, the pack also contains a very handy 10 pocket media wallet for SD and CF cards. Finally, since Tenba knows a day in the field does not always leave you near the nearest kiosk, a collapsible water bottle holder has been built into the belt. The pack weighs in at a reasonably lightweight 5.5 lb-excellent for a pack that can hold so much gear. The Roadie II is made by Tenba, a company world renowned for its protective bags and cases and backed by their five-year warranty.

question

I'm curious. I have a flight in May. I'm worried that they may think it is too large because of the belt strap. Even when it's secured down it still adds about 3 more inches. Have you heard of any cases of this being rejected as a carry on for domestic flights?
Asked by: Jason L.
No, I have not had problems before.

question

Does this bag have a way to carry a tripod on the outside?
Asked by: Anonymous
not specifically, however, each zipped pocket on either side is big enough to fit a smaller travel tripod and you can zip up the sides. My Sirui T1205X tripod fits in only about 2 inches of the top sticks out, but it's zipped in and secure. You could figure out a waterproof cover if you needed it.

question

Is this bag within international carry-on limits? Many thanks.
Asked by: Anonymous
International carry on limit is most often around 20x14x9. Since this bag measures about 15.5 x 20.0 x 9.5 , you might be pressing your luck if you decided to place it in the baggage size tester at the airport, when completely stuffed. However, it seems to be the closest size match in Tenba's line. If you made sure not to max it out, it would probably be allowed aboard.
