If you’re looking for a camera bag that can hang with your body armor, you must be looking for Kata bags. Their new DR-467 Digital Rucksack will ensure that even as you end your career as an unsightly red smear on some godforsaken rock ledge in Trashcanistan, your relatives will be able to recover your laptop and find all your fetish porn.
Things our photography reviewer liked: yellow high-visibility interior, stealthy exterior that doesn’t scream "steal my expensive cameras," tough shell material and zippers, plenty of useful pockets and a ginormous laptop compartment. Things that could be improved: vestigial hip belt = painful under heavy loads, teeny-tiny water bottle holder that for some unknown reason zips into the pack and no tripod holder.
The bottom compartment pops out for easy access, and can take two SLRs and a boatload of accessories. The foam dividers can be removed for more conventional daypack use. Comes with a fitted rain cover and is fully compatible with various carrying systems from Kata. Bottom line: great for a photojournalist or street photographer who wants to keep a low profile.
