I just purchased the Tenba Messenger Bag from B&H and I really like it so far. I've been using a Lowepro Mini Trekker AW for a while now but I wanted a messenger style bag and from researching different ones this seemed to fit what I'm looking for. I am very pleased with the quality of this bag and once I put my equipment in it and threw it over my shoulder I'm very pleased with the comfort of it. I can't wait to take it out while shooting and see how comfortable it is to carry around. The shoulder pad is padded well and has a surface that has a rubber feel and allows it to stay in place on the shoulder. I like the zipper in the top of it that allows easy access to my camera without opening the whole flap and it has plenty of pockets and compartments for all my gear. It looks like I'm putting the Lowepro up for sale now.

Congrats! I have one in green and it's very nice. I put my borrowed Hasselblad in it and all the gear. It fit most of what I use, but I could not get everything in it I normally take in my Domke F-802 without forcing some of the larger items in. So, I wasn't using it right. I use my UD40 instead if I need my laptop.

As for the comfort of the strap, I agree. It is definitely nice with the pad. The zipper on top was a nice touch, as it makes it easy to get to the camera.

Good to hear you like it.
Did you check out the Tamrac rally serie? ( messenger style just like the Tenba messenger )
I am looking to get one also and still deciding between those two: Tenba messenger large VS Tamrac Rally 7.

Zigot, I checked out the Tamrac but I chose the Tenba because the configuration suited my needs better. One main reason is because I don't carry a laptop around so I didn't really need the room for that. I like the Tamrac but the deciding factor was the zipper on the top that makes it easy to access my camera without lifting the whole flap to get to it. Just to be clear I bought the Messenger Medium bag.

I have looked at their messenger bags, I have the shootout backpack and toploader small and love them. When I get more serious about a messenger bag, I will be looking their way.

I looked at their backpack and really like them. I just wanted to switch to the messenger style and so far I'm happy with it.
