Can a 1DS fit with 24-105L attached fit in this bag? I'm looking for an everyday backpack that I can take on the bus to work and I'll also sometimes lug my 15" MB Pro with me as well.

I bought this bag for my five week trip to SE Asia.
What drew me to the bag was its ability to a.) Fit camera and 2 lenses comfortably XSi (18-55 and 10-22) b.) Fit 16 inch laptop c.) serve as a day bag with room for sunscreen/wallet/other essentials

I cannot recommend this bag enough, it was a beast for me, I think I topped the bag out at about 17lbs and it was still comfortable on me (6'1 170).

If anyone has any questions I'll do my best to answer them.

Well, it definitely fit my 17" MB Pro, but I thought it was too small for my 40D + battery grip + 16-35L. But it sounds like I'm the only one that finds the camera section too small.

There is one serious flaw in this design of the bag which I had just discovered and wonder why this wasn't being highlighted. Just under the handle, towards the back of the pack, is a hole, probably for a headphone wire. This is very badly designed. It's way too open. Any drops of water, either from rain, or simply drops from trees, will find their way in here. So If you put any expensive gears in the top compartment, this will expose to the risk for water/dust to go through this hole. And also danger of liquid seeping from top to the bottom compartment.

Does anyone has a solution for it?

Doesn't the bag come with a rain shroud? Or was I just using the one from my HB207?

I thought so.

Well, I guess it would be fairly simple to sew on a little flap, them seam-seal it? That would probably keep out most of the rain (or probably worse: dust) when you don't want to cover the entire pack.

My Tamrac Adventure 9 is pretty ugly, and I doubt it holds out the weather as well, but the size and space are spectacular. I wish Kata would come out with something like that. The whole "tilting open" bottom didn't really seem to work well for me. Probably cuz I filled it too full. But it seemed like the pack really wasn't structured enough to have a "drawer" (of sorts).

The search for my perfect bag continues! I really like most Kata bags, so I guess I'll wait to see what they come out with next.

It's kindof like searching for the perfect mouse. I gave up on trackballs 'cause nobody ever made a decent wireless one, though Logitech came close. I finally found a really good one in the VX Revolution, but the transmitter isn't nano-sized, which is annoying. It's too bad Logitech doesn't ever go back and update their older designs...

Ramble, ramble, ramble... Sorry! :-)

Guys

Gripped 40D without a lens attached would fit, I guess. But my 40D always has either the 16-35L or 30mm or 50mm Sigma attached to it, and forget about a gripped 40D with the 70-200mm f/4L!

My opinion: No. Not easily for sure. It didn't even open up well with my smallest lens (30mm) attached. The camera part isn't deep enough nor does it go down far enough to fit a 40D with grip easily. The only way I could even get it to work for me was to totally reconfigure the bottom part so the camera fit sideways, then carry any other gear in the top part, which doesn't have a lot of room, either, and defeats the intended purpose of the top part: To carry other stuff.

It's a better-built bag, and looks better, but the lack of room had me giving away my Kata and sticking with my Tamrac Adventure 9. I use that bag for almost everything!

Well I've had the 467 for almost 2 months, and I'm loving it. It holds all the equipment (except for the 80-400 and 50 1.8) in my sig (including hoods) in the camera section PLUS my battercharger, Kenko 1.4 teleconverter, rocket blower, microfibre cloth, and a couple of filters. In the top compartment is my 430 Speedlite, and in the front zip pockets are batteries and my remote shutter release. I could probably put the 80-400 in the top, but it's really heavy and will bear down on the other equipment, so I've been carrying it seperately when I need it.

I carry this bag to work every day, and slip my appointment book and files into the laptop section for going to meetings. Folks at my office tease me, knowing that I'll pull my camera out at the drop of a hat...

RobertZ, somehow I believe that you could fit more clowns in a clown car than anyone could possibly imagine. I have a hard time getting my 1DMkIIn and 85 1.8 in there without worry about fitting, but you take the cake!

: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.;)
