Awesome bag

Very versatile design. Easy to configure to your liking. I have a Nikon d300 w/ lens attached and there is plenty of room for accessories, manuals, and personal stuff! Nice bag. Not too big, not too small.

Not exactly what I was looking for.

While it is a very good bag I found it to be a little too hard to access my equipment. It is very well made and great for transporting equipment.

Could be the bag I use for a while

By

from murrieta,ca  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I only gave this bag 4 stars because it was to small. I'm not sure it's fair to deduct a star for something that really isn't the bags fault. I ultimately ended up returnig this bag and getting the 30. I really didn't get to spend any time with the bag but I believe it's just a smaller version of the 30 which I love so I'm sure the bag is great. The 20 was just to small for MY needs. Doesn't mean it won't work out for a lot of you. You just have to be aware of your hauling requirements. I've gone through a lot of bags like I'm sure a lot of you have and for now I have stopped wanting and buying bags. I researched a lot of bags as I'm sure most of you do. I ended up at KATA. Customer service is top notch. Important to have good customer service. They put alot of thought and engineering into this bag. They care about what they sell...

A Great Camera Backpack

By

from Santa Fe, NM  -  Casual Photographer

I use this backpack whenever I need to transport my Nikon D7000, Lens, and other accessories. It is not too big, provides quick and easy access and is very well designed. The construction is top of the line and the strap options are very versatile with multiple options to suit left or right handed people and for extended hikes. It also has an included rain protection cover.

This is one great bag

By

from Powhatan VA  -  Photo Enthusiast

To take great pictures you must be mobile and this bag allows you to be mobile while carrying and protecting your necessary gear. The bag is easy to set up, roomy, and makes your gear easily accessible. The multiple strap configurations are a big bonus.

Good for traveling light.

By

from Somers Point, NJ  -  Photo Enthusiast

I bought this bag for my gripped Canon t1i along with my 55-250mm, 18-55mm, Zeiko's fish-eye add on and other shenanigans such as my card reader, batteries etc. My first impression of this bag when I first pulled it out of the box was sturdy with good construction build. The bag feels solid and the harness felt very comfortable around my shoulders. This bag would be great for those who are looking for something small and light to walk around with. One thing that irritates me with this bag is the main compartment. Some of the accessories are hard to access and it seems like I wasn't able to fit all of my gears properly. Though it took me a while to work with the borders and finally fit everything inside perfectly. If you are someone who is looking for a sling bag and is always on the go then this would be perfect for you. But if you are someone who is looking for a place to put all of your equipments without the need of constantly taking it out then this bag is not for you.

Kata 3n1-20

By

from Joplin,Mo  -  Photo Enthusiast

We wanted a bag that was big enough to carry all the extra's for the camera, it had to be good and sturdy and fairly secure. This bags meets all those needs very good. We looked at a lot of bags before deciding to go with KATA 3N1-20. The best selling points on this bag is the constuction of the bag and the many ways you can convert the bag to carry it.

Highly Recommended Photo Bag

By

from Sydney, Australia  -  Photo Enthusiast

I use the Kata 3n1-20 as my permanent camera bag. All my gear stays in there all the time so that I'm ready to go in an instant. It has great weather protection, does NOT scream "I contain thousands of dollars worth of photo gear". I love that you can change the strap configuration to suit what you want to do on the day.

Versatile pack with sturdy construction

By

from Homestead, FL  -  Photo Enthusiast

I've had it for a couple of weeks and it's survived a weekend at Disney and some moves around town. I've had to move some of the walls around the main compartment to accommodate my flash, but it still does it's job like a champ. I'd probably move up to the 3n1-30, had I known...

Excellent Bag

By

from North Georgia  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This bag is great, I upgraded from my generic shoulder bag to transition to a better ergonomic support system and this bag has just that. With four different strap set-ups, this bag is everything I need and goes from sling to full back pack quickly. Any unused straps can be easily tucked into the back preventing any kind of interference with the surrounding environment. The inside holds my 40d with grip and attached lens, 28mm 2.8, 50mm 1.4, and 28-135mm with room to spare for 2 lenses if I so desire. The top compartment holds my flash, filters, transfer cords and all my personal belongings with room to spare. and unlike my old bag, this one holds my equipment STILL (no more clunking around inside) I've used this bag for about 2 weeks now and have shot 2 weddings, various portrait sessions, and is now my day to day "back pocket" I couldn't be happier and for the price it's a no brainer.
