Bag manufacturer Tenba has updated its Roadie line of rolling cases which come with features such as a removable camera inserts and an exterior pocket for a portable battery. The Air Case model features a rigid shell that can be safely shipped or checked at the airport. Tenba says the Roadie bags were designed with a high-end luggage aesthetic to ensure they look professional yet don’t draw unwanted attention to the gear inside.
The cases come with a water-repellent exterior of 1680-denier ballistic nylon, YKK RC-Fuse zippers and aircraft-grade aluminum luggage handles. A rain cover provides additional protection in wet weather and the wheels are user-replaceable.
The new Roadie Roller 18, 21, Hybrid 21 and Air Case 21 all comply with most international and U.S. domestic carry-on regulations, while the Roadie Roller 24 is suitable for non-airline use only but can carry cameras and lenses along with flash and lighting systems. 70-200mm 2.8 lenses will fit standing vertically to maximize interior storage. More information is available on the Tenba website.
Tenba Updates Roadie Line of Rolling Cases Including a Flagship Checkable, Shippable, Uncrushable Model
NORTH WHITE PLAINS, NY (PRWEB) JUNE 08, 2017
Tenba Roadies are sleek, discrete cases for uncompromising photographers and filmmakers that include some key “industry first” features like a removable camera insert, an exterior pocket for a portable battery, and an Air Case model with a rigid shell that can be safely shipped or checked at the airport. Roadies were designed with a high-end luggage aesthetic to ensure they look professional yet don’t draw unwanted attention to the gear inside.
Tethered Case Lid
Interior straps keep the lid upright when opened so it works as a mobile workstation, and they help the Roadie maintain a small footprint in tight environments.
Drop-In Tripod Carrier
This is Tenba’s quickest and simplest tripod carrier ever. Virtually any size tripod can be stored in just a few seconds. Also holds light stands when Roadie is being used for lighting gear.
Extra Bag Strap
A quick and hands-free way to attach a second bag to the Roadie, just like pilots and flight attendants do.
Leather Trimmed Handles
Padded top and side handles make the Roadie comfortable to carry even when fully loaded, and waterproof full-grain leather trim improves the grip.
Integrated TSA-Approved Security
The Roadie includes an integrated lock for the zipper on the camera compartment, plus an additional security cable and padlock to secure the case on location. Both locks are TSA approved.
Roadies are built to deliver on Tenba’s promise for durability, with a water-repellent exterior of 1680-denier ballistic nylon, YKK® RC-Fuse zippers and aircraft-grade aluminum luggage handles. For additional protection in wet weather, each bag includes a WeatherWrap rain cover. The user-replaceable wheels combine shock absorbing TPU with high carbon steel bearings so they are sure to roll smoothly and quietly over any surface.
The Roadie Roller 18, 21, Hybrid 21 and Air Case 21 all comply with most international and U.S. domestic carry-on regulations, while the Roadie Roller 24 is suitable for non-airline use. Roadies are available now at Tenba authorized resellers.
Introducing Our Checkable, Shippable, Uncrushable Carry-on Rolling Case
One model in the Roadie Collection, the Roadie Air Case Roller 21, utilizes Tenba's patented layered wall construction to provide the protection of a hard-shell case at a fraction of the weight. It can withstand more than 400 pounds stacked on top, so it will ensure equipment protection when the case needs to be checked unexpectedly, like when airline overhead space has filled up, or when flying on a small regional jet.
Introducing the Roadie Roller 24
Due to its larger-than-carry-on dimensions, the Roadie Roller 24 can efficiently carry large systems in a single case. Cameras and lenses can be stored along with flash and lighting systems, and 70-200mm 2.8 lenses will fit standing vertically to maximize interior storage.
Introducing the Roadie Hybrid Roller 21
A comfortable backpack harness enables the Roadie Hybrid Roller 21 to be carried when terrain is not especially "wheel friendly," such as on stairs or over sand or dirt.
Quick Access Battery Pocket
Available in all models except Roadie Hybrid Roller 21 and Roadie Air Case 21
The rear zippered pocket can hold a battery for charging mobile phones and other portable devices. Twin zippers allow cables to be easily threaded out of the pocket.
Removable Padded Camera Insert
Included with all Roadie Roller models except Roadie 18
The removable insert allows a camera and 2-3 lenses to be carried independently inside a smaller shoulder bag. The insert can be paired with Tenba's Packlite 10 travel bag to create a portable camera bag solution, allowing the user to leave the rolling case behind and just carry a core camera kit.
