About the Kata R-104

The Kata GDC R-104 Compact Rucksack Backpak is designed to fit a Pro Digital / SLR body with up to 300mm lens and battery grip attached, an extra body, 4-5 lenses + 17" Laptop + accessories. The unique design provides quick, separate access to your camera in the central compartment while the rest of the equipment surrounding it remains secure.

As in all the R's the entire main compartment of the R-104 can be easily customized with the well padded dividers. Additional storage is available in the form of two removable side pockets that will also fit a water bottle. A rear laptop compartment is provided with an additional elasto-guard laptop sleeve that can hold up to most 17" laptops. When using smaller laptops the compartment will suffice without the sleeve and when not carrying a laptop at all this compartment can hold personal effects. Provisions for carrying a tripod are made possible by using the included tripod holder that attaches to either the back of the bag or one of the sides.

The ergonomic harness includes a unique cushioning and shock absorbing system and an adjustable, removable waist belt, which combine to allow for optimal weight distribution and ventilation. Specially designed camera straps can be attached to the D-rings on the harness and will connect to the camera, for frontal "quick shoot" carrying that will take the camera load off your neck or shoulder. The R-104 is additionally compatible with the KATA EPH system which will allow you to connect additional compatible bags for more carrying possibilities. Full protection on the main zipper and KATA's unique elements cover make sure your sensitive equipment is well protected from the elements.
