Kata 3N1 series - can be used as sling or backpack, converts from one to the other quickly and (importantly for speed) without taking it off your back.

Body plus 70-200 2.8 will just fit in my 3N1-20 in terms of length (plus easily accommodates extra lenses, flash etc.) - the 3N1-30 is more roomy.


Cheers, Damien

for this I have
Think Tank Speed Racer very stable, easy to work from. But doesn't carry a lot.
LowePro Flipside Sport 15L
Domke F3X for lightness. F2 for little more gear
Less likely for me, LowePro Pro Messenger 200AW

Of. that Kata torso bag is incredible. Very comfortable. Great access. Good as a sling too, worn behind.

Look at the Ultralight Ligh Tri-318 by Kata:

You can wear it on your chest or your back. It will hold a gripped 5D3 w/70-200 f2.8 IS II and one or two more lenses. If you wear it on your chest you can unzip the bag and pull your camera out to shoot.

This one. Thanks!

I've really liked the Kata Ligh Tri-318 for active uses, although I can't say I've sprinted from one place to another with it. I've ridden a few hundred miles on a bike with it and felt like it was very secure on my back. It takes a little effort to dial in the fit so it's snug on your body, but once you've got it set up it's a pleasure to use. Decent capacity, also.

I'm looking for a smallish bag for run and gunning.
I need to be able to carry a 5D3, 70-200 2.8 II, and an extra lens probably 24-70 sized.

The most important thing is I will be doing dead sprints from place to place, and need a bag that won't bounce around at all. I'm leaning towards a sling, but any bag will do.

Any suggestions?

This is what I have. I wear it when I'm shooting paintball events and being able to adjust it tight to the body really helps keep it in place. It also has an extra strap that wraps around to the front to help keep it from sliding forward. Hope this helps.

My crumpler 7mdh is doing the job. Don't have the 70-200, but I did and it fit it, use the 24-70 v2 on the 5D and it fits fine with a flash, blower and room for other lens.

FWIW I ended up with a Think Tank Glass Taxi, drove 2 hours to the nearest retailer but ended up paying only $110 new after a sale, really love the bag so far.
