Kata DR-466i Digital Rucksack

Travel [旅游] • 30 NOVEMBER 2013
So, you’re getting ready to take a big trip, and want to bring your camera gear. What should you put it all in? It depends! How much camera gear to bring with you on whatever journey you are taking is an important issue—but what do you put it in? The answer to that question depends on the answers to several other questions: Are you flying? Hiking? 

The DR-466i Digital Rucksack (Black) features a unique TST RIB structural protection for two D/SLR’s with mounted lens, 3-4 lenses, flash etc. or a compact camcorder with chargers and accessories, both also with personal gear, laptop and small tripod.
By removing the padded bottom camera insert you can easily convert this rucksack from a camera bag to a daypack when not shooting. The main compartment holds a D/SLR in top grip position or a compact camcorder, while the modular dividers system will separate, organize and protect lenses, flashes and other accessories to suit your particular needs. The middle separating divider easily zips open for full bag access.The dedicated rear padded compartment will protect a laptop or hold paperwork. Check out the Dimensions.
The large top compartment will hold personal gear or additional equipment, and the internal pockets and mp3 player pouch will allow you to organize your personal effects as efficiently as your photographic gear.
Ample external pockets allow quick zippered access to supplies and a water bottle/ tripod support pocket pulls out from a side pocket. Included rain cover folds neatly away into an integrated pocket and can be hung out to dry on the small buckle next to the handle, or tucked away for storage in one of the pockets.
When carrying, a chest belt and balancing waist strap are available for ultimate comfort, and the rucksack is also compatible with the Kata Insertrolley if wheel along transportation is needed. EPH system compatibility allows you to attach either a torso pack or waist pack for additional carrying options.

I'd been searching for a bag to take to Beijing for photography trip. I was glad to find the right one. The ONLY substantive knock is that the bag seems a little pricey, although when you think about the cost of the gear that it is protecting, it actually feels more like relatively inexpensive insurance.
Bottom line: this bag seems a little bit expensive, but worth it! Four stars, mighty close to five! I love Kata.
