Comments about Kata Kata DR-467i Digital Rucksack for Two DSLR with Mounted Lens, 3-4 Lenses, Flash, Tripod & Laptop, Black:

I use my camera for wildlife photography, and wanted a bag for use on day trips through forests/jungles - one backpack for my kit (1 camera + 4 lens and lens caps), plus enough space for food, water, and some clothes.

This is a camera backpack which is just a little too small. Starting with the lower compartment, which is is divided for lens and camera - I have a Canon 400D, which isn't a large camera, but I can't get the camera in with my 700-300mm lens attached. Even ignoring this, all my lens caps have to be detached from the lens and go in the top compartment. This top compartment is very small, and for a day out hiking you can't get a lot in there. It's a shame, because it could easily have been a lot bigger without making the bag taller or wider overall by just making it deeper at the top - this seems a waste.

Getting 2 DSLRs, 3-4 lens and a flash in this backpack may be possible, but probably not with lens caps and much else, and I'm not impressed with the tripod holder.

I had high hopes for the Kata D-467i. The bag is well built, and the color of the interior is great for finding things easily. I am 5'2" and felt that the bag was physically too big for me. For one, the sternum strap's location, while adjustable, doesn't go up high enough for me. It lands mid-chest, which is problematic for a woman. The camera compartment is spacious-- too spacious for me as I only carry a Nikon D90 with attached 18-70mm lens, a 35mm prime lens and flash. Having the laptop compartment is nice, but without functional use of the sternum strap (not padded too), I don't see carrying the added weight of a laptop.
This bag would be great for taller people, and those with more gear.

Comments about Kata Kata DR-467i Digital Rucksack for Two DSLR with Mounted Lens, 3-4 Lenses, Flash, Tripod & Laptop, Black:

This is a VERY nice camera bag. After shopping for about two months, I realized that there is no such thing as the perfect bag...unless you spend several hundred dollars. I took the plunge and am glad I did. This bag will hold my 17 inch MacBook Pro with ease. It is the perfect size for a carry on, so now I can take my camera, a couple of lenses and a flash, as well as my Mac. No way am putting that stuff in a checked bag. The only issue I have is my camera (a Canon 7D) doesn't fit well with a 28-135 lens and the battery pack attached. I should have known better, the camera is a beast. But I can still get it in the compartment, it's just that the flash and other lenses have to ride in the top compartment. The only reason I didn't give the bag 5 stars, is because as I said there is no perfect bag, but for the money this one comes close. It's still the best bag I've ever owned, and I am done shopping.

Comments about Kata Kata DR-467i Digital Rucksack for Two DSLR with Mounted Lens, 3-4 Lenses, Flash, Tripod & Laptop, Black:

This bag got real small real fast. I got it because it was affordable and it could attach to a cart. But I can't store my canon 5d mrk 2 with a 24-70mm lens on. I have to lay down my 70-200mm. Needs more compartments. There is a big space in the middle and I don't know how to utilize it with out everything falling about. Could have used some sort of take out bags or more velcro pieces to attach to it to divide and protect the space.

Comments about Kata Kata DR-467i Digital Rucksack for Two DSLR with Mounted Lens, 3-4 Lenses, Flash, Tripod & Laptop, Black:

The DR-467i is an all around bag as you can wear it as a backpack, or configure it to wear as a sling pack, whichever you prefer. It is light weight with gear. In the bottom of the bag I currently have the Nikon D90 with 18-105mm lens and lens hood (fitted with the pedals facing the camera) attached stored in a grab and shoot method in one divider, the lens bag with lens covers in another, a Fuji s7000 in another divider, a large blower (Giottos) with stem detached in a divider, and one divider left for the Nikon 70-300mm VR when I purchase it, along with all of my accessories (cleaning kit (lens solution bottle, LCD pen, Lens pen, extra batteries, chargers, USB cables, video cables, wireless remote, 12 inch (folded) tripod in upper part of bag inside, and will strap a 23" tripod to the strap outside of the bag. You can only fit one foot into the mesh pouch that pulls out from the pocket and would recommend not doing this as it is fairly cheap, overtime will tear and most importantly is not needed. Just a gimmick. No laptop to pack, yet, however I placed all of my manuals in this area. I also recommend replacing the strap included for the tripod with a quick release strap. If you have the DR-467, simply add the strap by attaching it to the grab handle at the top of the bag. Awesome bag!
