Thanks for all the detailed reviews guys. I think I'm going for the 467i soon!

thanks for the reviews. Someone on another forum pointed me to this bag and its now on crutchfield.com for $65 with a free monopod and free shipping. Can't beat that! Mine will arrive next week, so I can stop visiting the Crumpler webpage I guess.

My bag came in from Crutchfield and damn it's a big bag! I love it though. Fits everything i have and there's still space for more...free manfrotto monopod was an added bonus...thanks again for the heads up. Can't go wrong for the price!!!!

too bad this isn't the 467i....

I would really like the two front compartments to combine when i'm putting my camera gear in it.

Hi,

I've searched over and could find exact answer for what are the differences between dr-467 and dr-467i. So I wrote Kata and here is their answer:

"2. As for your question regarding the differences between the DR-467i and DR-467 - the DR-467i is the improved version of the DR-467 and the improvements are as follow:

1. The 467i - has a modular division- you can unzip the middle divider to make one large compartment when you wish to use the bag as a simple day pack.

2. Tripod connection - in the 467i, there is a built-in tripod holder comfortably secures a small field tripod for carrying along when shooting.

3. In the 467i - you have a full EPH system connection . you can connect any combination of compatible bags to create a specific carrying solution that meets your particular needs.

4. In the 467i - we added a pouch connection - buckle and strap connectors on each shoulder strap let you secure pouches fir cell phone or MP3 player.



Additional improvements which are not immediately visible are:

- top securing loops on the element cover cannot slip off accidently.

-Shoulder strap configuration altered to create a V shape harness instead of two separate straps.

-Top earphone access modified to prevent any risk of rain seeping thought."

Hope this helps others too :)

Question to you 467 owners:
How big is the tripod/water bottle mesh? I read somewhere that the size is limiting and it cannot accommodate larger sized water bottles. I don't have a Nalgene or anything that big, but I use a pretty wide kleen kanteen.

Thanks for the quick reply. I measured a beer can which I can say is probably the same size as the rockstar; circumference of 8.5inches.

My water bottle is 9 inches. Doesn't look like it'll fit. :( Might have to go into the store to double check. The kata is on sale this week in Canada for $59, seriously considering it. I probably would have pulled the trigger for sure if it was the i model.

I wanted a DaKine bag but this Kata is good enough for me...
