Tenba has announced an update to its Messenger DNA lineup with a slightly new look, more color options and a single standout feature that sets this bag apart from the hundreds of others on the market.

Now available in four earth-inspired colors (Graphite, Olive, Cobalt and Copper), the updated Messenger DNA lineup features a unique velcro that is practically silent. Inspired by velcro developed for military personnel – to allow soldiers the ability to open their packs in the field without giving away their position – this innovative feature provides the security of velcro without the obnoxious noise.

In addition to the new colors and velcro, the Messenger DNA bags also provide a Quick Access top zipper, an ‘abrasion and moisture resistant body armor base panel’, a removable padded insert, a security strap for bicyclists and a WeatherWrap rain cover for when things get wet.

The bags come in three size offerings, the DNA 8, DNA 11, DNA 13 and DNA 15, which are shipping now for US$90, US$140, US$160 and US$170, respectively.
