Summary: Great bags. Holds my E-510 with two lenses, Metz flash, battery charger and still more room in the main compartment! On the downside it's missing a tripod holder ($20 extra for all 3N1 bags) and I would have liked to see a waterbottle net compartment but can understand it's lack of existence.
Summary: I bought this item to carry my Canon Xsi w/ std lens, a Canon 70-300mm, a 60mm, and a flash. There is enough room to fit all these items, but interior arrangement is difficult to accomodate storing the camera with the 70-300 attached for "quick draw". If I had ti to do all over again, I would buy the 20. Other than that, the Kata bag is really good quality. Better that most others I looked at.
Summary: This bag is just the right size for a day out in the city or a day hike. In practice mine held a camera body+moderate zoom (E-520+40-150mm) in the quick access slot and two more lenses bellow and a strobe above. There is also a portion in the top of the bag for accessories. My only complaint is that the bag is smaller than it looks, you will not be able to fit a 70-200 attached to a camera in this thing.
Summary: I have to say, this back pack looks amazing. It looks like a prop from a futuristic movie. Great style, very comfortable and did I mention it looks good? There is plenty of padding so if you drop your bag, your gear should be safe. Can be easily pulled around front to grab your camera. I have in this bag: Samsung HD camcorder and two batteries plus charger. Two lenses for my D60 and the body itself.
Summary: Padding and protection are first rate. Insides of 3N1-10 are highly configurable. With Nikon D60, no problem with 55-200mm mounted on body stored horizontally, with some room to spare. Also stores my 18-55mm, and could easily store another lens plus flash unit. That's without tapping the storage capacity of the top compartment.
Summary: What is awesome: This bag holds everything except....a laptop. You can wear it as an inner city sling bag for quick access or convert it to backpack for some hiking, motorcycling through Italy...which is what I used it for, and even skiing which I did last week. At one point the bag fell off my bike an into a highway as I dragged the bag for over 80 feet until I could pull over.
Well built comfortable; best for a small SLR + lenses

Summary: The Kata 3-in-1 model 10 replaces the Lowepro Slingshot 100 that that got handed off to my daughter. (OK, I admit to being a camera backpack junkie.) Kata's configuration assumes you'll insert the camera & lens ito the bottom section, through one of the handy side flaps. A spare lens or two would fit into the spaces left in the middle section and you could put other stuff (or your lunch) in the top section. That would be OK for Canon Rebels, Nikon D40/D60 etc.
Summary: Couple of notes about me: I'm a outdoor fanatic, traveler and bag nut. Combining the 3 and you have someone that always like to be prepared but also likes to pack as lightly and compactly as possible. Hence my choice of the smallest 3N1, the 10, for my DSLR kit which happens to be: D90, 18-105VR, 70-300VR, 35/2, 50/1.8, and SB600 (all Nikon). I have configured the main compartment to fit ALL of the above, and with sling quick-draw with ANY of the 4 lenses attached.
Summary: Extremely satisfied!!! Absolutely the very last bag you will ever need!!!! Which unfortunately for me means I have to have more of these awesome KATA bags. I an a civil engineer, constantly on the move. I travel from office to field, to gym to grad school, everyday! Sometimes on foot, sometimes on a bike, sometimes on public transport. I have to carry my laptop, mp3 player, cellphone, extra clothes, food... and some other stuff...
