Summary: I was excited to find a bag that can carry both a laptop and my camera equipment. It has been a long long search for such a bag. I have tried to rig my laptop bag into carrying my camera stuff and rig my camera bag into carrying my laptop (a 10" one). The bag design is awesome, everything fit perfectly, not to mention the removable camera pouch! I really wish that the plastic bit that connects the strap to the bag didnt break off.
Good airline bag for netbook, camera, file folders/notepad

Summary: I carry a Canon 30D, 60mm macro lens, 17-70mm zoom lens, 430ex hotshoe mounted flash, batteries, chargers, canon point-n-shoot camera, netbook w/powersupply, plus other small items. The bag has one main compartment with a removable padded mini-camera bag that holds the DSLR. The tall thin shape is nice compared with more traditional camera bags that are squat and bulky. This bag will fit in the overhead bins of even the small regional jets.
REALLY Excellent Messenger style bag for a DSLR & Laptop

Summary: There are lots of features to appreciate, but the one I didn't expect was how comfortable the shoulder strap is. Of course the storage compartments are nice, my new 15" MacBook Pro fits snugly in the laptop compartment and my Canon 40D in the camera compartment with more room for additional lenses. When all that weight gets in there, I was happy to see that the burden on my shoulder is actually pretty well distributed across the padded strap.
Good Design; Doesn't Scream "There is a camera in this bag."

Summary: I bought the DB 455 for looks and function. Like most shoppers for camera bag's of this styling, I wanted a bag that didn't scream, "Camera inside." I decided to go with the 455 over the other Kata models because I wanted the laptop slot for trips. The removable Camera bag within the bag is also nice because it can be used in backpacks, etc. if you are in need of a larger pack.
Great camera bag that doesn't look like a camera bag!

Summary: This is a very well thought-out bag. There's plenty of room for your dSLR, a combination of lenses, flash and other accessories along with your laptop. The laptop storage area is good if it's small like a netbook or a 13" laptop. There's plenty of pockets and storage areas for memory cards, spare batteries, cell phone, etc..
Excerpt: Сумка прекрасная. Всё продумано до мелочей. Материалы на высоте. Lowepro и прочие в аналогичной ценовой категории такого качества и удобства использования не предлагают (перед покупкой было пересмотрено множество подобных сумок).
Pros: Сумка отличная! Название KATA говорит о многом. Тут и качество материалов, и качественный пошив, удобство эксплуатации и надёжная защита фототехники от ударов, влаги, кражи (не так просто незаметно расстегнуть все замки). Кроме этого сумка вместительная. Имеется отсек для ноутбука, по бокам карманы, спереди большой карман под всякие полезные фоторадости) Также внутри дополнительная защитная сумочка для тушки и объектива, которая закрывается на замок. Единственное, что...
