Thread: Kata DR haversack

  1. #1

    Default Kata DR haversack

    Hello!,

    I was looking at the kata DR 466 for myself to use.
    Was hoping it don't look too guy-ish for myself .
    The bottom looks roomy enough for me.
    Was looking at getting a backpack for my overseas trip during the end of the year

    Btw, i'm using a D50 attached with a tamron 17-50 and 2 more prime lenses. Might be bringing a 80-200 for my trip, not decided yet. hmm.
    BUT the kata DR466 definitely looks big enough to hold all that i've mention
    oh, i don't own a laptop, but don't mind having that component for my papers.

    Would like to hear some kata owners feedback on any of the DR haversack they've own.

    Thanks you alll in advance first!

    80-200 you will have to put in the top compartment of your bag and not the bottom camera compartment.

    but it will work well enuff for the D50 with 17-50 and 2 primes. I use a DR 467 myself for travelling.

    woo, DR-467 is huge indeed
    thanks for the feedback, the only difference is the strap which holds the tripod right.
    Still considering if i should be bringing my tripod cuz, i'm traveling not exactly for leisure purpose. haha, so it might get abit out of the way if i bring.
    They will be like OMG!

    seems like most ppl are using 467 instead of 466.
    shall bring my gears and try one day

    Have you considered the Kata Sensitivity? It's slim, fitting and can I say, androgynous?
    from guitars, cars to dslr...

    466 is quite nice too, think its size is better fitting for a gal. Compromise is that you can only fit a smaller laptop and the top compartment is much slimmer.

    I have both bags with me at home, can post picture comparisons or 466 & 467 for you later if i have the time.

    Got the 467 for myself and 466 for a friend in case you are wondering why i have 2 haha....

    what about considering getting a 466 for a friend here. hahaha
    May i know what's ur gear inside 466.
    Haversack helps to lighten the weight, but it also tends to make us carry extra weight.
    Pls do post a pic would really love to see them side by side.
    Thanks

    sometime over the weekend i'll try to take the shots.

    the 466/7 have similar sized camera compartments. I keep my 5D2 (w/o grip) with a lens attached + 1-2 primes and a medium size telephoto lens (70-200 F4). it will not fit the 70-200 2.8 or 100-400 type of big telezooms. Those you have to keep in the top compartment.

    well... i guess different ppl have different taste. Personally i think the sensitivity is one of the better looking bags around.

    It's really slim and allow the user to move around in crowded area easily.

    just my opinion.

    DR 466 is not friendly for big lens, again day to day usage consider not bad as you can put ur notebook. there's another 2 more bag can consider too like tamrac speedpack 85 or fastpack 250.
    shoot for fun

    Hi,

    I have been using the Kata DR-466i. The newer version. Besides the tripod holder strap, the top and bottom compartment can be used as a whole ordinary backpack since it is seperated by a zippered flap. I think DR-467i can fit max 17" lappy and also 200mm lens but it will be too big for a lady but it all comes down to what your needs are. You can check my flickr images on my sig.

    Regards,
    Jay

    i just got my DR466i at KL ... i find DR467i is too big for my liking...

    Initially I am looking at the DR465i but the laptop compartment is really good to store things, so in the end I get the DR466i...

    Want the "i" version for tripod as well..
