How to Make the Perfect Camera Shoulder Bag Better - the Tenba Shootout Lens/Bottle Caddie

Some time ago, I reviewed the Tenba Messenger Laptop Bag. It is a great bag and I can't say enough about it's usefulness. But there is one thing missing from the bag that I realized is very important. You see, it's winter time from where I am and my next best friend is a hot cup of coffee or tea. When I want to shoot something, I, of course, want both hands free. I can opt to put my cup-a-Joe on the ground, on the slush, but I really don't want to. So where do I nestle my hot beverage?


Enter the Tenba Shootout Lens/Bottle Caddie.






As usual, the accessory is made up of very good materials and the construction is great too. It attaches nicely to the bag and, I think, can hold up a venti-size drink. It can also serve as a lens holder just in case you ran out of space inside the messenger. I was able to fit my Canon EF 70-300 f/4-5.6 lens albeit without the lens hood.


 




I am very happy with this and I am very happy that now I can have my hot cup of coffee while I wait for the next great shot.






(An aside: I just realized that I only noticed the need for a mug caddie during winter but not during the summer months when I need to hydrate. That meant that I was (am) bad at hydrating myself especially when I need it most. That has got to change!)
