The MESSENGER collection is all about speed, stealth and versatility. Get at your camera and laptop gear quickly, with bags and accessories that have nearly infinite uses, and do it all without anyone knowing that you have expensive equipment with you.

When building a bag to be used every day, there is no choice but to use the best materials and hardware. All Messenger bags are made with water-repellant, military-grade 1000 denier nylon, YKK zippers, Duraflex clips, steel D-rings and a waterproof bottom panel. That's what it takes to keep a bag looking good while carrying everything you need to a photo shoot or an office; close to home or on location.

The DNA 8 Messenger is the first major addition to the iconic Tenba Messenger collection in over seven years. It was designed to provide the kind of year-round, all-weather, rugged performance demanded by New York City bike messengers, but with an interior that's tuned to protect delicate cameras, lenses and computer gear. It can hold a mirrorless camera with 2-3 lenses. The camera and lenses fit inside a removable padded insert in the main compartment, and a tablet up to 8" store inside a padded pocket on the bag's interior.

YKK makes the best zippers in the world. Period. They are more reliable over a longer period of time, and they withstand the stress of heavy equipment and the abuses of travel. And we only use the self-healing zippers with specially designed zipper coils that easily reconnect if they separate from over-packing.

  • Fidlock patented magnetic clips allow blind, drop-on attachment and a fast slide release. This is the quickest clip in the world. It can be both secured and opened with one hand, even when wearing gloves, or when the bag is behind you.
  • Quick Access? zipper lets you securely swap out cameras and lenses without opening the front flap and exposing an entire camera system to prying eyes in unfamiliar or dangerous locations.
  • Front flap extends over the bag and has a sewn hinge to ensure easy closure and excellent weatherproof coverage at the corners.
  • Included WeatherWrap rain cover is removable and reversible, with silver on one side to reflect the heat, and black on the other side for a bit more stealth and subtlety.
  • Elasticized micro-mesh pockets provide quick access storage on the outside of the bag.
  • Zippered pocket in the main flap provide out-of-sight, out-of-mind secure storage for important items like a mobile phone and keys.
  • The shoulder strap includes non-slip shoulder pad.
  • Removable padded camera insert protects a mirrorless camera system with 2-3 lenses.
  • The padded camera insert slides out to convert the bag for general-purpose, non-photo use.
  • Rear padded sleeve fits an iPad Mini or similar sized tablet.
  • Tenba's exclusive heavy-duty body armor base panel is water and abrasion resistant. This protects the bag if you have to put it down on a wet and/or dirty surface, and is easy to wipe clean.
  • Rear pocket fits passport or other thin accessories.
  • Tons of pockets and compartments to keep batteries, cables, chargers, pens and business cards organized.
  • Exterior of lightweight 600 Denier Helix with a durable water repellant coating.
  • Interior made with lightweight ripstop nylon and soft, brushed tricot.
  • The hardware is second-to-none: YKK zippers and clips, contoured zipper pulls and welded steel D-rings.
