About Kata

The D-Light Bumblebee DL-210 is stylish, functional lightweight, protective backpack which is designed to carry camera gear + everyday personal effects and can easily convert into a simple and useful daypack when not using or carrying a camera.

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 backpack, while modularity allows you to make it even lighter by simply removing components that are not necessary for your everyday use.

The bag is designed with a double compartment concept: In the lower compartment there is a special padded camera insert and Aeriform Dividers to fit a DSLR with standard lens attached + 2-3 lenses (up to a 70-200 F/2.8 not attached) + flash + accessories, while in the upper compartment there is plenty of space for personal effects.

When needed the camera insert can be removed and the zippered partition between the two compartments opened to create one large storage space. Along the back of the bag is a full length laptop slot which will fit 15.4" laptops. A variety of external pockets will store accessories and personal gear you need rapid access too such as, wallet, phone, water bottle etc.

I love the Kata D-Light Bumblebee

By

from Evansville, IN  -  Photo Enthusiast

I love this bag and am easily able to carry my macbookpro laptop/cord, Canon 5D Mark II camera body, (3) small lenses such as 55mm and 16-35mm and (1) large lens up to 200mm. Unfortunately, I don't think this bag would fit a 300mm lens. Extremely well designed, made, durable, comfortable and stylish - overall you can't beat this bag unless you need to store 300mm and larger lenses.

Too cumbersome to access camera stuff

Useful, but difficult to access gear

By

from Boston, MA  -  Photo Enthusiast

As a new bag, I think that there is some wearing in that needs to happen, however, the bottom flap (which is where your camera and lenses are stored) does not open easily (and may not open completely enough for a totally useful storage area). Again, I haven't broken the bag in at all, so it has all of its manufacturers stiffness still. That being said, it has a useful balance of extra storage and gear storage, and seems to be well made. It is a great bargain for a photo backback, considering its competition!

Perfect!

By

from Germany  -  Photo Enthusiast

Primarily used for transporting gear while traveling. When I arrive at a destination, I try to take only 2 lenses and my camera so I'm not carrying a lot of weight for long periods of time. It's then I switch to a small bag - but the Bumblebee 210 gets me where I'm going. I am able to carry all my gear (a Nikon D7000, Tokina 11-16mm, Nikon 16-35mm, Nikon 35mm, Nikon 50mm, Nikon 70-300, SB700 speedlight, tripod attached to the side and my 13" MacBook) comfortably...and I am a small female (5'2"). Even with all this loaded in the bag I have extra room on top and it's not too heavy. I've tried at least a dozen bags and I like this the best!!
