First, I will highlight what I like about this bag:
1. It is light-- much lighter than the camera backpack that it is replacing.
2. It has a huge capacity-- I can easily pack everything I own into this bag, including my Canon 30D, 70-200mm 2.8 IS and hood and case, 17-55mm 2.8 IS and hood, 50mm 1.4, Canon 1.4 multiplier,430EX II flash, Kenko extension tubes, Arctic Butterfly and Loupe, filter packs, Pocket Wizards, BH-55 tripod head, battery charges, manuals, cords, lens cleaning supplies, and more.
3. ALL the backpack straps tuck away-- LOVE this feature! Nothing to hang out when carrying it around as a bag instead of a backpack. ALL camera backpack makers should follow Kata's lead here.
4. The quick-draw release system-- VERY quick to get at your camera.
5. Carries my 15.4" laptop with room to spare.
6. Comfortable waist straps

After an exhaustive search the Kata 3N1-33 was the closest I could get to perfect. Other bags I considered were the Lowepro Fastpack 250, Tamrac Evolution 8, Tamrac 3385 Aero Speed Pack 85, Lowepro Slingshot 302 AW, and the Lowepro Flipside 200. I read extensively about them all, compared stats on weight and dimensions, and tried all of them on in stores too.
Bottom line is the camera gear above is a lot - both in terms of volume and weight. There is just no small/light pack that will carry all of it, and there's no getting around the fact that you have a big bag and a lot of weight on your back.
I quickly ruled out all the sling-only models as that much gear gets too uncomfortable with the weight on 1 shoulder. I tried it and they would only work on very short excursions. For the backpack models, the Tamrac Aero 85 is nice (good waterproof zippers, fairly light, laptop compartment), but it doesn't have a waist nor sternum strap (very important for longer walks/hikes). The build was a tad thin too - less protection - but OK for a short jaunt or day trip.Read more ›
Once loaded, you really need both shoulder straps to carry the load. The waist strap secures the pack nicely. That makes it a little harder to access your camera from the side zippered flap, but it is still very convenient. This pack is going from car to plane to car to travel destination. From there, I will unpack what I plan to bring on a walk about and put it in a Kata DT-213 - a much more reasonable sling pack. I don't see myself doing any hiking with the 3N1-33.
Laptop sleeve is well thought out and perfect for holding both lap top and charger. Zippered outside pocket makes it convenient for airport security compliance.
Design, materials and features are exceptional. Let's see how it holds up after a few trips.
Lowepro Fastpack 350:
-fits large computers (at least 15.6"-17")
-kinda boxy and large for my size
-no tripod holder (not that big of a deal, you'll figure out a way to attach it)
-quick access only on one side
-no rain cover
Tamrac Evolution 8
-build quality slightly better than Lowepro
-quick access both sides
-better shape. It tapers at the top so i think it looks better, but you will sacrifice some space. It's more aerodynamic if you were flying through the air like superman.
-heavier (from specs)
-barely fits my Dell Precision M2400 (14") with larger battery. If i had a 15.6", it may not fit.
-Great build quality
-access on both sides
-comfortablly holds my computer
-It's super boxy for my size
Here's my take. I dont feel much of a difference in weight. Lowepro may be a tad lighter. Having the sling/backpack option seems like a clever idea, but i dont know if i would ever wear these bags as a sling because it just feels awkward. the bags are too big for a sling. the raincover is nice, but putting it on is not as easy as the videos. but if you do plan on going to niagra falls or plan on a rainforest trip, you may want one. Access on both sides is nice so you can access lenses.Read more ›

It's bigger than it looks, which means it should be able to hold mid-size body, 70-200 f2.8, 24-70 f2.8, 85mm f1.8, 18-55, 35 f1.8, sb-800 and more... Read morePublished 2 months ago by Phillip E. Cannatti
