Tenba’s new photography essential for the outdoor enthusiasts is their Solstice Backpack! They are the latest in outdoor photography and film travel. As an artist I have always loved photography, but a regular camera bag is not designed to be comfortable while you are on the move. Backpacks are always more efficient when traveling with children. Most times I would leave my camera behind because I don’t want to wag the should strap camera bag with me. When you are trying to keep up with three children and trying to hike up a mountain it is impossible to keep up with a bag. Unless it is a backpack that doesn’t need to be removed to grab the camera at a moments notice!
The new Solstice 12L Backpack features a secure rear access, allowing users to remove equipment without ever setting their bag down. I chose a smaller camera bag because I don’t have all the lenses and gadgets required to do major shooting. The new bags are able to carry a iPad Mini, and are designed with a waist belt and adjustable sternum strap. This makes it a perfect camera bag for balancing weight and all-day travel.
Tenba Solstice backpacks ensure all-day carrying comfort and equipment security for the traveling photographer. Built with uncompromising materials and hardware, like YKK® zippers and water-repellent nylon. Solstice backpacks are extremely lightweight, yet they carry a mirrorless or DSLR camera system and a compliment of personal gear. The rear access has two key advantages — first to be able to exchange gear without ever removing the bag from the body, and second for security, as it keeps all the gear sealed up against the user’s back.
The 12 liter backpack will fit a mirrorless or DSLR camera with 2-4 lenses (up to 70-200mm 2.8) plus an iPad Mini, with space left over for food and other personal items. Extending the compression straps through the front lash points allows the bag to hold a jacket, blanket or other oversized item on the outside. The Solstice Backpack is the perfect backpack for any busy mom.
