Looking for a good quality gear bag that can hold a little bit of everything? Then this bag might be for you!
I stopped by to see my friends at Outdoor Photo Gear the other day and they had just received a shipment of these bags in. While I wasn’t really in the market for a new bag, I couldn’t help but notice the size of this thing and how well made it is (its a Kata –duh). Its billed as a medium sized bag, but this thing looks like it will hold everything but the kitchen sink! So I had to check it out.
Its the Kata KT-OMB-75 One Man Band Bag and I believe it would store everything a one man band could possibly throw in it. Its surrounded by pockets all the way around and on top. The front pocket zips open to reveal a large, flat storage area with smaller, utility style pockets for everything from notebooks, to pens, chords and all sorts of smaller knick-knacks. It also has a flat pocket on each side and another voluminous one on top. On the outside top of the bag, there are straps that can be used to strap on a tripod or light stands.
The inside of the bag has a bay for storing your laptop and two removable, zippered pouches. There’s also another strap inside to secure bigger items from moving around in the bag and has another two interior mesh pouches. It also comes with a bean bag to rest your camera on while shooting! On top of all that, the inside of the bag itself is spacious enough to hold several cameras, lenses, another tripod or could be used as a light bag to hold multiple monoblocs and pack-and-head type systems including small battery packs!
This bag is made really well with two straps on the side for easy lifting. It has an inter-locking rugged handle for carrying and a shoulder strap that looks like something that came from the space shuttle with aluminum buckles, that also has a quick release latch on it. The bag itself is made of reinforced Nycore grid fabric which basically means its going to outlive you!
Also, this bag isn’t only for photographers. This would make an awesome accessory for videographers, DJs or anyone else looking to have a quality way of storing and carrying their valuable equipment.
The really, really awesome thing about this bag? Outdoor Photo Gear is running a special right now where you can get this monster for only $99.95!!! That is a steal, but if you’re interested, at this price I bet they go quickly and the sale is only good while they have stock, so once they’re gone, that’s it! Like I said earlier, I wasn’t even looking for a bag, but at this price and considering the quality of the bag, I had to have one. As a matter of fact, I took their demo!!
