Excerpt: Although the bag could accomodate my D7000 + 35G/f1.8, voigtlander 20mm and a 55-200mm/f4-5.6, it never felt very comfortable when carried on the torso. When swivelled to the back the pack seemed to come away from the body requiring extreme tightening of the strap which produced more discomfort. Finally moving it from front to back required unhitching of the strap and then swinging the bag over with all the potential for an expensive spill associated with that action.
Excerpt: A good bag that I find very comfortable & has a great balance between size & capacity. It is easy to use & the contents remain stable when the top is open. If Kata were to add an external zippered pocket then I would give this 5 stars - at the moment all of the small miscellaneous items are all over the place.
Excerpt: I needed a camera bag to strap in front of me. I do lots of hicking, for a few days, and needed some rough gear to handle the elements. (i used to carry my camera alone strait, without protection, even in the rain...) I have a D300 + 17-55mm 2.8, and it fits perfect ! It does have a rain cover also, and is very rugged.
Pros: Adjustable Harness, Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I have a Canon Kiss 3 (US spec T1I) with zoom lens. I prefer a minimalist bag, it fits both lens, lens cleaner, wallet, cell phone, camera in a compact protective over the shoulder bag. I searched many bags and previously owned a Tamrac which was a little large. The 312 is a great bag, great protection but keep in mind, a minimalist bag. I have taken it all over Okinawa and it's been great.
Excerpt: I bought the device to carry small accesories on video shoots. The torso pack is great ergonomically and allows a variety of devices to stored owing to its shape. I have used it to carry anything from a DSLR (7D with normal sized lenses) to Handicams to misc. audio equipment. The pack sets on your torso in a way that you can still wear your regular back-packs.
Pros: Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Well Padded
