If you are a photographer who often has to travel with your gear, be it a small kit or a large one, then you know the struggles and stress related to this. Finding a quality bag to protect your gear while en route to your destination can go a long way towards alleviating some of the struggle and Tenba’s Roadie line of bags are designed exactly for this purpose.
The Roadie line itself has been around for some time now, but it was recently updated with a new look and several features that Tenba claims are industry firsts. One of the highlight features in the updated Roadie line is the new patented layered wall in the Roadie 21, which allows the bag to provide hard-case level protection at a fraction of the weight/bulk. This is great both for the protection of your gear, but also for those who have to worry about weight/ limitations on their bag(s).
In addition to that, the Roadie now also features a tethered lid that allows the user to use the bag as a sort of desk/workstation. This is incredibly helpful if you have the bag out in the field where there may not be a safe or clean place to put down your gear or use your laptop. You can also find other things like built-in TSA approved locks, a drop-in tripod holder capable of holding virtually any photo tripod, YKK Zippers, Removable camera and lens module, and mobile battery charger pocket.
Tenba’s Roadie line now features 8 options of varying size, capability, and feature set to fit the needs of any photographer that needs to carry their kit around with them (hint: That is all of you). The bags/rollers range from $279 to $479 so you should be able to find one that fits your budget and your needs.
