Tenba Cooper Collection Expands Including 2 New Backpacks

Tenba has expanded its Cooper bag collection. The bags-that-don’t-look-like-camera-bags lineup has expanded with two new backpacks, a smaller over the shoulder plus a slimmer 15” laptop shoulder bag.

Tenba bill their Cooper line as a collection of luxury – fine materials including leather accents and trim are used to construct them.

It seems something of a right of passage for all bag manufacturers – functional bags with more focus on stylish aesthetics; we did a whole article on the very subject back in November 2016.

The Tenba Cooper line originally existed as a select few different-sized shoulder bags.

The newly announced products are a more compact shoulder bag, a slim 15” laptop compatible shoulder bag and two backpacks.

The Cooper 6 is now the smallest in line – it’s designed for mirrorless/rangefinder cameras with 2-3 lenses. Designed primarily for stills but really compact video systems could work with this.

Like all the Cooper shoulder bags the Copper 6 features the prominent front designer zip.

The Cooper 15 Slim is self explanatory – a slimmer version of the Copper 15.

“An exterior built with military-grade CORDURA® canvas and waterproof leather delivers serious protection. CORDURA® canvas blends INVISTA nylon fibers with cotton to achieve an abrasion resistance four times greater than 100% cotton canvas. This gives the bags a long-term, allweather durability that is critically important to photographers and filmmakers. Hand-riveted leather zipper pulls add a distinctive touch.”

Perhaps more importantly is announcement of the Cooper Slim Backpack and Cooper DSLR Backpack.

The difference between the two is size – the Cooper Slim is designed for mirrorless/compact DSLR systems with 2-3 lenses. The Cooper DSLR Backpack is 20-30% bigger.

Other than that the feature list is very much like for like.

Both Backpacks are a split design – compartment at the bottom with dividers for camera kit plus a personal compartment at the top for everything else.

The top compartment has the aforementioned Cooper designer zip; the bottom compartment is a single leather-look piece, overall contributing to quite a stylish look.

What’s nice about the camera compartment (as with many Tenba bags) is that the dividers are removable, meaning in seconds you can take out your entire camera section to place in another bag, or make room for something else.

The top compartment has built-in top access pockets, great for small accessories (pens, glasses, phone etc.); there is also space on both models for a 10” tablet.
