Product Description

The D-Light LighTri-315 DL is stylish, functional lightweight, protective Torso-Pack which is designed to carry camera gear + everyday personal essentials. TST RIB structural protection, light yet durable RipStop fabrics & meshes, Aeriform foams and Spider Webbing straps all join together to create a light and protective product. The LighTri is uniquely designed to keep your DSLR in quick-draw position at all times. Carry your gear either on your back or on your torso and simply switch from one position to the other by swinging the bag from back to front to grab your camera for shooting. For a long haul a second balancing strap can be used for comfortable transportation. The main compartment will hold a DSLR with up to 70-200 mm lens attached in top grip position. Use the Aeriform Dividers to create compartments alongside the main camera set-up for additional lenses, flash or other accessories. A discreet, flat rear pocket is perfect for personal essentials such as wallet and travel documents, while a cell phone pocket located on the shoulder strap provides easy access when on the go.

This bag is a great size. I wanted something that I could carry with me on a daily basis that wouldn't be too obtrusive or too bulky. After fiddling with the extra straps and getting the shoulder strap length adjusted, I finally found a comfortable, easy way to wear this. I re-positioned one of the inserts to go horozontally across the bottom of the bag, leaving enough room underneath for the rain cover and a small lens (I keep the Rokinon 8mm fisheye at the bottom). This leaves enough room to fit my Canon 10-22mm and Canon 28-135 kit lens in the side compartment, and my Canon 7D with the 50mm f1.4 attached in the main compartment.

The zipper compartment on the back fits the manual and a small notebook nicely, and the 'cell phone' compartment is where I keep my lens pen.

As far as I'm concerned, this is the perfect bag for an every day walk around bag. It offers nice protection and enough room for several lenses and accessories. I don't often use a flash, so the extra room I gain by re-arranging the sections allows for extra lenses. Highly recommended, just play with the straps and figure out the best way to carry it for you to make it comfortable. It took about 2-3 days for me to get it optimized, but it was worth it.

I only gave it 4 stars because I couldn't give it 4.5. It isn't perfect but pretty close.

I have the old Kata T-214 and I like this bag much better. I criticized the 214 for being a little too depth challenged horizontally to hold a dSLR with a grip. It was also height challenged for my attached long lens. The 214 ended up sitting on the shelf. This bag resolves that nicely, allowing for a nice comfy place for a quick draw. It holds my T3i with battery grip, 70-200L, 10-22, and 17-50 Tamron, along with a 1.4X teleconverter. That's a nice complement of lenses to capture most any situation except the extreme long shot. What's more, I can leave either of the telezooms on the camera and not have to reposition anything.

Here's what I mean. I have the bag set up pretty much as it came with minor adjustments to divider placement. That means in rough thirds. When I have the 70-200 on the camera, I simply keep the 17-55 in the middle slot and drop the 70-200 into the deepest well near the bottom, body attached! If I happen to have the 17-50 attached, which is most of the time, I keep the 70-200 in the deep well but drop the body into the middle well with lens attached. The only thing I do is flip the grip toward whatever direction the unattached lens is in. Make sense? I then keep the teleconverter in the shallow slot along with the 10-22. Depending on what I'm up to, I can also tuck in my nifty fifty OR possibly swap out the 10-22 for one of my macros.

As for the bag itself, it is very well made, very comfy, and decently padded. I only have two criticisms so far. One is the lack of small pockets. There are plenty of places where a zipper and a flat pocket could have been added to allow for an extra notebook or manual, or perhaps even a sunglass spot. Filters perhaps?

I have had this bag for over 6 months, and during that time I never stopped trying to adjust the straps. I could just never find the right position, for comfort and access. I have finally given up and decided to go in a different direction and get an integrated computer/camera bag so that I don't have to carry 2 bags when traveling, so I just bought a LowePro Fastpak 350 AW. Maybe my body design is too short and round (5'7"/200lbs 167/90) for this unit. I guess I just don't fit Kata's demographic.

Other than that it does its job well, snug fit for 60D with grip, 24-105L, 70-300L, 430EXII, charger, SD cards and couple of filters.

I really do think that it is case of me not fitting the bag, and not necessarily the other way round. I suggest testing it very well in the store, or making sure you buy it with a good return policy.

the D-LighTri315 is a great size and shape for a day shoot. the wide opening and width works for an easy grab, as does the kodak box yellow lining. the strap is overly padded; hoping it will soften with use. again with the strap and the ability to configure in various arrangements - way more complicated and thought provoking than i have had time to experiment with. it is holding up well to the elements, and sticky stadium seating floors.

Received it after 2 weeks of purchased from Amazon (considered it quick as internationally address!).

Well, the bag seems well built and designed. My d90 with 18-200mm fits well inside it; with extra space for my compact Lumix TZ-20 and SB800 flash. The strap also have a pouch for phone. Overall, I am satisfied with the bag, although a wee bit bulky. Hence, 4 stars!

Upon receiving this bag I was disappointed by the size of it. It is smaller than I had expected. I had contemplated buying the older and discontinued 314. The 314 is a little bigger and having used it I presumed that this one would be a little bigger than the 314. Not so. The bag in and of itself is a little pricey for its size but well constructed. The design is a little lacking in my opinion. Inside there is enough room for me to fit my 7D with 17-55 (no hood) attached in the center. My 100-400 (no hood) on the deeper side of the camera and my 85mm (no hood) on the shallower side. This is a tight fit but works. The side pocket would be good for batteries and memory cards etc. I think it was designed for a cell phone though. This pouch could have been considerably larger. The back pocket is large enough for something very slim and about the size of a small book. There is no pocket in the front which the old Kata 314 has. I assumed there was a front pocket because of the slit in the front. I figured it was there to allow the front pocket to be a little overstuffed. However it is merely there as part of the design for protection of the center pocket. I don't understand why there isn't a front pocket on this bag. The problem for me is with the camera lens configuration that I am using there is no place to keep my flash. All in all this is a well constructed and solid bag you just need to be very aware of the size limitations. Basically in a nutshell you can fit your DSLR with a medium lens attached, 1 long lens and either a flash or small lens and then some small accessories like batteries and filters. The bag is comfortable to wear and can easily swith from your back to front. I gave it four stars because of the price and lack of front pocket.
