Links are here first:
Skyborne:
http://www.vanguardwor​ld.com …roducts/list-1-1-214.html (external link)

Shoutout:
http://www.tenba.com …/6/shootout/Bac​kpack.aspx (external link)

Both seems to be very good backpacks. In the dilemma.
Both solid and comfortable shoulder/waist straps.
Both have ability to load all my gear.
Centerline tripod carrier is awesome!

Skyborne seems to have a better venting system and side access
Shootout has side pockets to store lens which allows fast switching
The shoulder strap has the feature to lock the camera strap, which I'm nor sure for Skyborne.

Any thoughts on these two backpacks?

Thanks!!

I haven't seen the Vanguard but I recently purchased the Tenba Shootout Medium and like it a lot. I hadn't heard of Tenba until I read a fairly recent thread about it along with some others being considered by the original poster (OP).

I'm the product manager for Tenba, and I can certainly answer any questions for you. I would say briefly that the fundamental advantage to Tenba bags — before you even get to the features — is that all the professional bags are made with nylon, not polyester. And the rest of the materials and hardware are at the same level. That's more of a statement rather than a comparison, since I didn't want to bring a sales pitch to a forum.

I'm happy to answer more questions publicly here or over private message.

Woo, cool!
One little question about shootout is that, if I don't put so many lenses and bodies, do you provide dividers or so which can separate the internal to two? I can put personal stuffs in the upper space and put my cameras in lower space.
Thank you

The dividers are completely adjustable, so you could remove the dividers in the top half and fill that space with personal things, and use the bottom for heavier gear. Also, the entire interior padded insert is removable so that if you want to use the backpack as a soft bag for hiking and don't need the padded structure, it all pulls out in one second. Then the bag becomes a really well made soft backpack, like a Jansport except with weather-sealed YKK zippers.

I have had my Tenba Shootout for almost 3 years, and I have had no problems with it... and tell anyone and everyone looking for a backpack to check one out.

I have it full 7D grip with 17-40, 28mm , 50mm , 85mm 70-200mm , 100-400mm , 1.4tc , extension tubes , 430 flash , plus alot more little things... things I forget about....

Anyway, I take this everywhere I go, I hiked with it over 10miles a day.. gets alot of use..... will buy another when it wears out !!!!!!

In the never-ending quest for the perfect camera bag, I've picked up a few Tenba bags along the way and still have them (messenger bag, messenger backpack, Mixx top loader, and a large shoulder bag). All of these bags are constructed to high standards are are extremely functional. Tenba makes some great bags.

I'm a big fan of Tenba products. I own a couple of their bags and the quality is top notch. The materials are made to withstand use. One of my Tenba bags sees heavy use and it hasn't failed me yet. No, I'm not employed by Tenba, I just like their bags.

Just touched the tenba shootout today
Truly good build-up. Medium size is bigger than I expected.
I'm considering small now..
