About this item

The Pro-Light Bumblebee PL-220 is a multi-featured professional backpack designed to provide the best carrying, storage and working solutions. Lightweight and Protective it will cater to the smallest detail of a professional's working needs. Specially formed foam encased spring steel Spine Guard runs down the front of the bag and an Aluminum Skeleton stave arcs across the mid section for ultimate structural protection.

Light yet durable RipStop fabrics & meshes, Aeriform foams and Spider Webbing straps all join together to create a protective and light backpack and the fantastic modularity allows you to make it even lighter by simply removing components that are not necessary for your everyday work. The main compartment is designed to hold 2 to 3 DSLR camera bodies + up to 8 lenses (space for up to 500mm but with tripod mount dismantled) + flash + many other accessories.

Use the modular Aeriform Dividers and Cocoon Pouches to custom fit your exact gear needs. Access to the main compartment can be from top, bottom or any other point so if you need to get to one specific item you do not have to open the entire bag and expose its content to prying eyes. Additional storage space is available in the large full length rear laptop slot (will fit most 17" laptops).

External top pocket and two side pockets will store personal effects such as phone, wallet, travel documents etc. These can also store small accessories you need rapid access too such as media cards, batteries or filter, while a flexible pocket on the other side will easily carry a water bottle. The double purpose pocket on the bottom front of the bag can be used either for additional storage or as a docking base to secure a small tripod.

Key Features

  • Elements Cover: The provided elements cover will protect your valuable equipment during extreme weather conditions. Simply install over the bag on the black side for rain protection, the silver side for heat deflection, or use as a dust cover.
  • Laptop Compartment: This bag features a padded laptop compartment which will allow you to always have your computer at hand and easily accessible. Please check the Kata bag Chooser for compatible laptop models.
  • Tripod Holder: The Kata tripod holder allows you never to leave your important tripod behind. Simply attach to the designated clips on the bag and put two legs of the tripod in the sling to comfortably carry your tripod along with you wherever your shot may be.
  • Camera Strap: This feature allows you when carrying a Kata backpack to take the weight of your camera off your neck by attaching your camera to the straps of the backpack. Your torso carries the weight of the camera instead of your neck making for a much more comfortable shooting experience.
