Who is this dork? Who cares? It’s all about the bag, in this case the Kata T-212 torso pack. Kata bags are Israeli-made and combat proven, providing serious protection for your big-ticket electronics.
The T-212 is part of Kata’s "ergonomic photo" EPH system; it connects to various waist packs and backpacks for flexibility and optimal weight distribution. The T-212 fits SLRs and small camcorders, although not with a lot of accessories. This bag is more in the minimalist mode.
The top-loading front-carry design with high-visibility yellow interior provides great ergonomics, with a wide and comfortable shoulder strap. The accessory pockets are a bit deep and narrow, and it could use some small pockets in the main compartment for batteries and digital media. Overall it’s a pleasant and functional companion, which is more than I can say for my climbing partner.
