Customer Reviews:

  • Great Bag!
    After getting sick and tired of carrying two bags for trips, one for DSLR gear and one for notebook, I started looking around for something that would hold all my stuff that wouldn't be so bulky as well. I love this bag. A great part of this bag is that it doesn't look like a gear bag that could be holding thousands of dollars worth of gear. I wasn't sure if my stuff would fit in this bag but unlike a few others have posted, my 14" notebook fits. Here's what I have in it...

    - 14" WS Notebook (Dell Vostro 1400)
    Bottom Compartment...
    - Canon 40D w/Tamron 17-50 attached
    - 580EX Speedlite
    - Canon battery charger & extra battery
    Top Compartment...
    - 70-200mm 2.8L IS
    - Logitech VX Nano Mouse
    - Dell notebook charger
    - extra CF cards
    - lens pen

    I also have other miscellaneous stuff like business cards, card reader, 8GB Zune etc that is in the bag. I'm pretty much maxed out on the bag, except maybe adding the 50mm 1.8. If I got a batterry grip on my 40D, I'm not sure how that would fit in the bottom compartment either, probably would have to take it off when traveling. This is a very well designed bag and it's amazing that it can hold so much stuff while being so sleek. My minor gripe would be not really having a place to put your documents.I think what I'll do is put documents in a folder and put it in the laptop compartment. Also I think making it a tad bigger to fit a bigger camera with battery grip would be nice. The advertised size for the laptop compartment is 12" but like I said earlier, my 14" Dell Vostro fits, zips up and everything....more info
  • Very well constructed camera bag - a little geeky for a computer bag though...
    I've heard a lot of people describe using this bag as feeling a bit like James Bond. It's a neat bag, but I think that's going a bit overboard. The bag is relatively good looking, though a bit geeky in my opinion. It is extremely functional though. Very well thought construction, and easily stores my DSLR, point-and-shoot, and video camera, along with all the necessary cables. The laptop slot is also handy, though it fits at MAX a 12" laptop. Don't think you're going to shoe-horn your 15" macbook (much less a 17") in there.

    I don't use it as my primary laptop bag - I have a nice Tumi for that. But I throw all my cameras in this, and never have to worry about packing up this gear....more info
  • Great
    Fits my Canon Rebel D-SLR with a 50 mm lens and 75-300 lens. Could probably fit another one also, but it would need to be padded to keep it from banging into everything else in the main compartment. Also will fit my MacBook 13". . . a little tight, but still well protected. "Phone" compartment in strap is way too small to fit just about anything but maybe a CF card. Good features for a great price. very satisfied. ...more info
  • Very comfortable and great for day trips
    I recently went to the Pacific Northwest for vacation, and tugged along my Canon Digital EOS Digital Rebel XT, 18-55mm lens, Tamron 11-18mm lens, and Canon 400mm lens.

    I put the large 400mm lens in the top section, the camera body and two others in the bottom section. Inside the top section is a small zippered pouch where you can put small items, such as a lens cloth, brush, etc. I had a large lens stored there which took up 95% of the space, but if you don't have such a big lens, you can use that area to store an external flash, and a few smaller lens.

    The laptop section is rather small, so you can only fit a 13" sized laptop or smaller. For my trip, I just used it to hold small pamplets. The external pouches are rather small and for my purposes, not very useful. They are very tight, so they can't really hold anything large. They can't even hold lens filters very well. I put a stock Hoya plastic lens case in the side pouch, and one of the sharp corners of the lens case actually left a mark on the bag. If I had left it longer, it probably would've punched a hole through.

    The material is very soft to the touch, and can withstand light rain. However, I wouldn't take this bag out in a thunderstorm, as it is not waterproof. The bag is very stylish, and quite comfortable even lugging all my camera gear for hours. It does get a little hot in the back, as there is no ventilation.

    Overall, the Sensitivity V is suitable for hauling a limited amount of photo gear. Don't expect to pack a lot into it....more info
  • Small but Flexible for Lots of Gear
    I bought this bag based on Ron Brinkmans's desciption on This Week in Photography podcast. I use it to carry an Canon D30, a Canon 100-300mm f4-5.6, a Canon 28mm 2.8, a Canon HV20 HDV camcorder, a blower, cleaning supplies, and power supplies, etc. I like the size of it since it is fairly small but you can carry a log of gear in it. The straps are comfortable although my iPhone won't fit in the "cell phone" holder. Smaller phones should. The "mp3" holder is too small for my iPod Classic but should hold a nano. Very compact but very useable space....more info
  • Very good but could be improved.
    Laptop compartment slightly too small. My laptop with 14" screen will fit in there without zippering it closed though. Loading and unloading the camera and lens is slightly cumbersome due to the velcro system that it has in the lower compartment. Very good though for it's size and looks....more info

  • Superb camera bag for day hikers and weekenders...
    Compact, yet amazingly capable camera pack. Carries my Nikon D700, 14-24mm, 17-35mm, 70-180 micro lens, flash, ipod, cell phone, extra batteries and macbook air easily. Perfect weekend pack. Only wish it had a way to carry a full sized tripod and a waist strap to lessen the load on my shoulders. Otherwise-a fantastic pack....more info
  • Awesome Perfect Sized Bag
    The pack doesn't come perfect. The "Kata" logo is ludicrously outlined in pink and after coloring it in with a black sharpie, it is now perfect.

    I was searching for a bag that can fit my Black Macbook (13") and also hold my Canon XSI. The bag is made of a neoprene material with black mesh on "Sweat" spots like the back and shoulder area. One thing I was very particular about was that I find a bag that doesn't look huge on me and fits just the items for a days journey. I'm about 5'10" and the bag is contours to your back making it look very Sleek and Stylish. I hop around NYC area all day and this works for me way better then a sling bag or a side pack. I find those to weigh too heavy on just one shoulder.

    It sounds silly to me when people complain that this bag doesn't have a holster for their tripod or a certain pocket broke their nail. It's like saying it doesn't fit my Grand Piano and it doesn't have a holster for my Couch. haha Well, that is just my 2 Cents. ...more info
  • Awesome
    Extremely satisfied!!! Absolutely the very last bag you will ever need!!!! Which unfortunately for me means I have to have more of these awesome KATA bags. I an a civil engineer, constantly on the move. I travel from office to field, to gym to grad school, everyday! Sometimes on foot, sometimes on a bike, sometimes on public transport. I have to carry my laptop, mp3 player, cellphone, extra clothes, food... and some other stuff... I have been looking for this bag all my life. If you have several "worlds" to juggle. This is the bag for you....more info
  • Great for travel or every day use
    I purchased this bag for the sole purpose of accompanying me on a 3 week trip through Asia. While searching for a suitable travel bag, the main features I looked for were 1) protection, 2) mobility, 3) style, 4) options - what can it carry? - and 5) price. The Sensitivity V hit all of those requirements so much so that I've converted the use of this bag from travel to every day use.

    I was able to comfortably carry a MacBook Air (MacBook fit well as well), Nikon D80, 50mm, 18-200mm, chargers for both camera / notebook, and a few snacks to make it between meals. The bag sits high on your back with a low profile. The unorthodox zippers make it awkward for someone to walk by quickly and unzip & grab.

    For situations when I might need to carry other objects other than a camera + lens and charges, the middle compartment divider unzips and flattens. My only request would be that the lens / camera holders be removable. Not a detractor though from the rating.

    The best part... You can carry all of your precious electronics on a trip in a bag that doesn't scream camera or laptop bag. At least not the standard looking camera bag that most tourists walk around with. To add to the subtleness, I scratched off the bright white icons denoting which compartments might hold what type of electronics. E.g. the shoulder strap with a cellphone icon on the pouch and the laptop icon on the back of the bag (against your back). ...more info
