    I'm a sucker for a good deal, especially on a good camera bag. But that color is making my eyes bleed, haha.

    I expect you're right, haha. And no one would steal it, either!

    Well, they also have the same bag in a somewhat less garish green for only $5 more, and the larger Vector 3 bag, also in green, for only $5 more than that. I'm probably going to buy the larger Vector 3 in green for only $25 with free shipping, so thanks for the OP for posting this deal.

    I noticed that, and I agree: the green isn't that bad.

    Also, for anyone interested, some of the same deals exist via Cameta's Amazon storefront. I'm trying NOT to blow Amazon gift cards I received as holiday gifts on one of these. Tenba makes some pretty nice stuff.

    When I buy from Cameta directly, I don't pay sales tax. Amazon charges me sales tax in California.

    One of the Amazon reviewers said the green isn't as "flourecent" as the pictures indicate and said it was a tamer Olive color. I have the Tenba Small Messenger bag in Olive and it is a nice color...so that bag might not be a bad deal.

    I still can't believe some executive at Tenba, Inc looked at that blue color and said, "I love it! Get it into production. We'll corner the Smurf market!"

    The red ones are also pretty garish - they look like a color that was rejected for use on fire engines because it was too attention-getting. BTW, I just bought the Green Vector 3 for $24.95 with free shipping. Even if the color is exactly as it appears, I don't mind that one - but the blue and red versions were pretty outrageous looking.

    Wow, I'm not fashion forward enough for that bag.

    One of my favorite philosophy quotations!

    The Green Vector 3 has me tempted. I have the Think Tank Mirrorless Mover 20 and its just a little too small for my OMD E-M5 and the lenses/accessories I want to carry. This Vector 3 looks like it could be "just the right size".

    I really like blue. It is one of my favorite colors. At least it was.

    My green Vector 3 just arrived and I'm very happy with it's size, it's design and it's appearance (and it's a serious bargain for $24.95 all inclusive). The green color is much more subdued than it appears on the website - closer to military camouflage green than it looks in the pics. Size-wise, it's perfect for four typical lenses (and or a flash gun instead of one lens) and one full size M4/3 body, and also has several other pockets and pouches that can fit filters/hoods, memory cards, batteries and charger, as well as an additional pancake lens or two. It also has a rear pocket that houses a rain cover. Overall, a very nice, functional bag for that size of an outfit, and a super bargain at the sub-$25 price. The slightly less costly and slightly smaller Vector 2 bag is basically the same, except for room for two fewer lenses

    Thanks for posting this Doug! This sounds like a perfect mid-sized option for me. I have the Think Tank Mirrorless Mover 20 which is sometimes too small and the Tenba Mini-Messenger Bag which sometimes is too big. Your bag sounds like the same color green that my mini-messenger bag is.

    I plan on ordering one today.

    Great deal. Would make a great tool bag for the trunk of the car. If you broke down along the roadside, it would be brighter than POLICE FLARES.

    As a camera case, I confess I am not quite "that secure" and would have to pass.

    : )

    The Tenba Vector 2 bags are sold out at Cameta, but the deals are still there for the Vector 3 - and the not so bright green one is actually the cheapest.

    FYI, I bought one each of the blue Vector 2, and the green Vector 3. The Vector 2 is the right size for 1 body and 3 lenses (or 2 lenses and a flash). The Vector 3 is the right size for 1 body and 5 or 6 lenses, or 2 bodies and 4 or 5 lenses. They are very well made, very functional bags. The blue color is really bright in real life. The green one is not outrageously garish at all. For $40 total, I got myself two very useful bags, properly sized for small outfits and good sized outfits respectively.

    A little pricey for me but Looks pretty cool. I am not sure if it would be large enough for me. It would have to be at least a little larger than the bag that I currently use for me to like it ..
    Hmmm..., Maybe if i decide to get it, and if I do not like it I can give it to my sister.

    Hunhhh!?!?!
