Oh, I'm sorry. That was a typo. It should have read "carabiner." (also spelled karabiner I believe)

They're basically a metal loop with a clasp that can be threaded through things. Real ones are used for climbing and ropework, but low-grade (meaning weaker and generally less secure) ones are sold for use as key rings and the like.

I guess, think of it as a small lock without a combination or key :)

Pictures would be great! Thanks.

Thanks! It looks like I could thread something through the zippers for an added kick of security in a pinch.

Sadly, no local stores carry this bag. I guess I'll just have to order one and hope it works! Thanks for the info and photos.

Goatee, could you post a picture of the 70-200 f4 in the bag? Does it cause the bag to bulge out on the top compartment? I think my current kit can fit but wasn't sure what you meant by it just fitting. Thanks

I can fit my 100-400 L in the camera compartment hood reversed, so i really don't see a problem with a 70-200 f/4.

You also have to think do you need the lens to fit in the bag while it's mounted on the camera, no way i can fit my 40D + 100-400 in there when mounted, atleast not in the lower compartment. It does fit in the upper though, but that's not a very nice way to carry you stuff..

Sure - will do tonight. I'm impressed the 100-400 will fit in, because the 70-200 f/4 is the longest possible lens that could squeeze in for me.

Well, I bull**** Not. :)

It does fit, in the camera space i keep.
340 EX Flash ( left side )
10-20mm Sigma ( left side )
40D + 17-55mm mounted ( center )
100-400 L ( right side )

Of course the 1-4 is a tight fit, and it's not easy to close the compartment with that in there, but it's doable.

Wow- I'd love to see a shot of it in there! That must be a very tight squeeze!

Ok, i've got some pics to prove myself. The 100-400 L does fit in the Kata DR-467.

It is a little too high to fit easily, but i don't see a problem carrying it in there. Atleast i do..

That's impressive! It doesn't look like any more of a squeeze than I have to get my 70-200 f/4 in!

It would be perfect for me, if it was impossible to open the camera section whilst on the back.
