:lol::lol:

I just received the bag yesterday. I was actually pretty stunned when I realized how much I could safely fit in it. I forgot to put the 17-40 in there though.;)

Could you please post a pic of how you get everything in there?

I ordered a DR-467, but will unfortunately be returning. I currently have a lowepro slingshot 200AW which I really like and a mountainsmith parallax. I did not feel the quality was there in the Kata, the straps seemed really thin and the camera compartment did not seem very stable.

I ordered a Dakine Mission Photo, will post a review when that arrives.

Just got mine this past weekend. So far I really like it. For photowalk I simply put my camera in the top compartment so I can pull it out easily. The laptop compartment is sweet, I can easily fit my radio trigger box and the pose scrap book I have in there.

I am very interested in this bag, but I have a concern that the camera is too easily accessible and means very easy to be stolen. Do you have any way to address this?

I find the zippers really easy to tuck in. You could also connect the zippers with a circular key ring which would be quite a fiddle for a thief.

I find you have to open the bottom compartment up quite wide to get the body out. You would notice if someone was doing it when you were wearing the bag.

When I zip the bag up, I normally put the zips at the bottom so they are near my back/side making it harder for someone to reach them.

One has a compartment for the laptop and the other does not.

wrong answer. The difference is the size of the laptop slot. Also the "i" indicates that the bag has tripod storage.

look at the kata-bags.com site -- it as dimensions on each. 466i will hold a 15.4" laptop (depending on dimensions of your specific laptop). 467i fits up to a macbook pro 17". 466i is the same size as a 465/465i with a little deeper depth for the laptop. the 467i has larger dimensions overall. bottom pack size for the 466i and 465i are the same. I believe you dont gain any significant storage for the bottom camera area with the 467. it's more about what size of laptop you have.

i can say i'm currently using the 466i on a trip to Beijing right now with all my gear listed plus a 15" macbook pro (yes, 70-200 is in the top sac area -- its a bit of a tight fit lengthwise with its original case, but will fit a lot easier with a wrapped blanket/towel/padding)​. it's a little on the heavy side, but for this tour, it will do. the comfort level and structure of the bag (considering the weight of the stuff in it) is quite good. The weight distribution across the shoulders feels pretty good -- I actually have a harder time picking it up than trotting with it across the forbidden city. IThe dimensions also passed airport checkin/security/etc without a second look.


If you can read this, you don't need a macro | 7D + 5DIII + Waaaay too much spent....

This bag is a dream. I might not have all of the fancy camera stuff but being a college student with an SLR, this one makes the cut. Since most of my classes don't require a laptop, I can slide my writing materials in the laptop area and a thin book.

In terms of what I can keep in there, I've just got a 50mm lens, ~24-80mm Tamron (yeah, baaaaaad $40), 55-250mm, XTi. All on the bottom. Usually the 55-250mm is upright, Tamron next to it and the 50mm is always attached. This fits snuggly and I can slide in other smaller things too in between the padding and the camera.

hopefully that gives a representation. But either way, up top I have a water bottle, iPod, keys, external HD, cords. and I have plenty of room.

I also have a 17" Dell Inspiron 1521, this thing is a #&*% brick and fits in nice and snug. Very comfortable but has a hard time letting the back breathe (or maybe it is a problem with being in the Philippines).

My only complaint are the straps.... so many! But the D-Rings are nice.

Oops :oops: I was thinking of the DR465 which is what I have. Sorry.
