The Tenba Switch 8 Camera Bag is a messenger-style camera bag that is designed to accommodate a
mirrorless camera with 3-5 lenses, on-camera flash, accessories, and a
tripod. Unlike most camera bags of its kind, the Switch 8's artificial
leather front flap can be unzipped and detached, allowing you to replace
it with optional flaps of various patterns and materials that can be
selected according to your mood or taste.
Aside from being able to convey a particular choice of style, the front
flap also offers the functionality of quick access to the main
compartment without having to pull the flap away from the bag's front.
This is accomplished with a durable, self-healing top zipper. When you
wish to completely open and close the Switch 8 by peeling back or
sealing its flap, a magnetic closure minimizes noise and unwanted
attention. For times when additional security is needed or wanted, the
flap can also be sealed with a snap-button closure. Two snap-button
closures are provided, one high and one low, the higher of which is
intended to be used as the bag is filled to capacity and the flap cannot
as easily reach the lower snap-button closure.
While inside the Switch 8, your gear is organized and protected by foam
dividers that can be repositioned within a soft, padded, brushed tricot
and ripstop nylon interior. Retractable side weather flaps, in addition
to a 420-denier nylon construction with water-repellant coating further
help to keep the elements out and a WeatherWrap cover is included for
maximum coverage. Should the bag be placed on a wet or dirty surface
without its wrap, an easy-to-clean water and abrasion-resistant base
panel protects the Switch 8 and its contents.
Directly under the front flap, a zippered front pocket contains two
neoprene accessory pockets, an ID window, as well as a metal key clip
and D-ring to securely connect memory card wallets and other attachable
items. Behind the front zippered pocket is a full-length zippered pocket
which can be used to hold items such as a camera flash, battery
charger, or a cell phone. MOLLE-compatible side loops allow for the
attachment of accessory pouches to either side of the bag, and MOLLE
loops on the bottom allow you to bring your tripod along while
maintaining the Switch 8's compact form factor.
Two side mesh pockets provide visible and easily accessible storage
spaces, while a rear, padded zippered sleeve fits an iPad Mini or
similar sized 8" tablet, and is also suitable for carrying a passport,
map, or other travel documents.
