TENBA Solstice 20L Backpack

Looking for a reliable backpack that can protect your camera gear while providing a pocket of space for personal items during your day hikes or possibly travels? Look no further than the TENBA Solstice 20L Backpack.

The bag offers a 20-litre capacity which will comfortably fit 1-2 mirrorless or DSLR cameras along with 4-6 lenses (up to an attached 70-200mm 2.8) and an iPad or similar tablet in the front zipped section.

In addition to camera gear, there’s room in the top section for a light jacket, snacks, and other essentials, making it perfect for a day trip. That top section is just large enough to fit a drone such as the DJI Mavic 3 Pro. The backpack also features two exterior side pockets that will hold a tripod or water bottle, and there’s a removable WeatherWrap rain cover for added protection in inclement weather.

The dynamic interior can easily be adjusted using the velcro divides to accommodate different camera gear configurations; I carried the Canon EOS 7D MK II, 24-70mm, a 100mm macro and a few personal items.

While the bag’s design is relatively light, loading it with kit does start to pile on the pounds. However, the ergonomic shoulder and waist strap design ensure all-day carrying comfort. Another nice feature for walkers, climbers and mountain bikers is that the slim pack leaves plenty of room for arm movement.

Being designed for outdoors and trekking, Tenba has paid attention to two essential features, the first being comfort and the other being security when you’re on your travels.

With the backpack’s rear camera access feature, your camera gear is kept snug against your back, preventing anyone from removing anything from the front or sides of the pack while you’re travelling. This added layer of security gives you peace of mind when you’re on the go, especially in crowded areas.

The rear access design is innovative and allows you to quickly swing the backpack to your front to access gear without ever having to take the pack off your body. This feature is particularly useful when you need to change lenses or grab your camera quickly to capture a fleeting moment.
