Welcome to Kata’s new world of color. Your digital camera requires a higher level of protection, but who said protection had to be boring. The Kata Digital Photo Series (DPS) Color Collection takes Kata’s world famous protection and gives it a twist. The DR-467 Backpack lets you comfortably carry your D/SLR with mounted lens, 3-4 lenses, flash and personal gear while also holding up to a 17 inch laptop. If color isn’t your thing, the backpacks that CNET gave an Editor’s Excellence rating are still available in classic black. The DR-467 Digital Rucksack features a unique TST RIB structural protection for two D/SLR with mounted lens, 3-4 lenses, flash etc. + personal gear and up to a 17” laptop. By removing the padded bottom camera insert you can easily convert this rucksack from a camera bag to a daypack when not shooting. The main compartment holds a D/SLR in top grip position while the Modular dividers system will separate, organize and protect lenses, flashes and other accessories to suit your particular needs. The dedicated rear padded compartment will protect a laptop or hold paperwork. The large top compartment will hold personal gear or additional equipment, and the internal pockets and MP3 player pouch will allow you to organize your personal effects as efficiently as your photographic gear. Ample external pockets allow quick zippered access to supplies and a water bottle/ tripod support pocket pulls out from a side pocket. The included rain cover folds neatly away into an integrated pocket and can be hung out to dry on the small buckle next to the handle, or tucked away for storage in one of the pockets. When carrying, a chest belt and balancing waist strap are available for ultimate comfort. The rucksack is also compatible with the Kata Insertrolley if wheel along transportation is needed.

I flew on Boeing 767 and 717 airplanes and had no problems putting the bag beneath the seat (I hate using the overhead bins). The bag is extremely well made compared to its competitors and at $[...] is good value. It has excellent padding.
Once I got to Hawaii, I used the backpack on multiple day hikes and very comfortably carried my camera with extra lenses, flash, Panasonic waterproof camera, and the camcorder. I had space in the top compartment for a windbreaker, food, extra batteries, etc. I could have put my 70-300 mm zoom lens in the top compartment but I didn't bring it. Also, in order to put my D90 with attached 18-200 mm zoom lens in the backpack, I did have to reconfigure the pockets in the camera portion of the backpack.
My only minor gripe has been expressed by others, the side mesh pocket is pretty useless for carrying a water bottle. But if that is important to you, you could always get a water bottle carrier that attaches to your belt.
Overall, I am extremely satisfied with this product. There is a good video review of the product on YouTube which helped me to make the decision to purchase the backpack: [...]
Space provided for your equipment is plenty. I routinely fill the bag with a camera body, three lenses, a flash unit, a netbook, various cables, papers, books, pens and pencils, a pair of heavy-lifting gloves, even a coffee thermos. Little odds and ends are carried safely in the two upper zipper pockets.
Are there any negatives? There's one, small one and has to do with my personal sense of comfort: on longer treks, my back feels very warm because this baby is great insulation. I haven't had the chance to use it during the summer months yet, but I can tell this is going to be a bit of an inconvenience. Still, this is such a great piece of materiel, and does the job so perfectly, that I can "suffer" a little when carrying it!
If you're looking for the perfect all-round digital rucksack, the DR-467 deserves a place on your short list. The price is right and the product is of high quality and great ergonomics and promises to serve you for a long time.
Enter the DR467! It has the perfect amount of storage for travel in a durable lightweight package. I usually fit two zooms (one on camera) and a couple primes in the lower compartment with plenty of room for others stuff. I use one of the compartments for wireless flash triggers and batteries. In the top front pockets i have more batteries, memory cards, cleaning tools, filters, waterproof cover for bag, and cables. In the bigger top compartment I put my hoods flahses and etc. If I don't need any of the hoods or flashes I could empty it out and put in a jacket or snack in the top compartment. The rear laptop compartment is quite large. I fit a 13" macbook and charger or 15" dell and charger easily. Carrying this pack is a breeze. The water bottle holder I'll often use to hold my tripod instead. The pack has plenty of padding but not so much to make the bag too bulky.
During my travel in Thailand I encountered some rain. Luckily the bag comes with a waterproof cover! Slid that right over the bag and had no problems with water. You do have to be careful to cover the bag properly or water can come into the top compartment where the headphone/earbud cable pass through hole is. I lower compartment has a removable divider system that is nice. I like to once in a while put that out and give it a quick tap if any debris got in there. The divider placement was fine when I got it but they can be readjusted since they are only velcroed to the sides.
I transferred my stuff to this bag for travel but never ended up putting it back to the other bag I had. I use this bag all the time now!
