Elmsford NY – January 5, 2011 – Leading the way in carrying solutions for over 30 years, Tenba announces that is has expanded and upgraded its line of durable and weather-resistant Roadie II Photo/Laptop Cases. Roadie rolling cases allow photographers to take their equipment off their neck, shoulders and back, and put it all on wheels.
These airline carry-on compatible cases, available in three sizes, are built to withstand serious professional use, with rugged, weather-proof coated ballistic nylon exteriors, genuine YKK zippers, heavy-duty, smooth and silent-rolling ball bearing wheels, industrial/military-grade webbing and massive reinforcement in all stress and load-bearing areas.
“Tenba’s upgraded Roadies have been designed to meet the needs of today’s hard-core traveling professional photographer,” said Jan Lederman, President of MAC Group. “After 18-months of careful development and testing, these new cases are set to raise the bar for airline carry-on compatible camera cases.”
Roadie II Photo/Laptop rolling cases feature EVA molded interiors for maximum depth and versatility to hold medium to large professional DSLR camera bodies and lenses (mid-range zoom lenses can be stored standing up; super telephoto 300mm to 600mm lenses will fit with their hoods and tripod collars in place), large video cameras or even medium format camera systems. They also feature a built-in padded laptop storage area perfect for quickly and easily accessing 15- and 17-inch laptops at airport security, with seemingly endless space for other accessories.
Each case includes a steel-braided security cable that can be fed through a built-in welded steel D-ring and padlocked for security on location. Also included is a slim 4-pocket media wallet that fits either CF or SD cards.
Each size meets a different set of carry-on standards. The Compact case (13W x 16H x 9D inches) will fit under the seat for many flights, or in the overhead compartment. The Universal (14W x 20H x 8.5D inches) meets the absolute strictest international carry-on standards. And the Large (14W x 22H x 9D inches) meets U.S. domestic standards, as well as the standards for many international flights.
The new Roadie II Photo/Laptop Cases are available now at suggested retail prices ranging from $279.95 to $319.95. All cases come in black. To find more information about Roadies, and to see a full video demonstration of all Tenba products, visit www.tenba.com.
