    the 3N1 is just not the fastest if u need to quickly remove your camera from your bag or change lens. a sling bag is faster for that.
    Yeah kata straps are pretty good, thick padding. Better than lowepro actually. I find lowepro straps are way too thin. It's body also too thin.

    i thought the vanguard uprise series design is similar to the kata 3N1? i.e. side zipper for quick access to equipment?

    Vanguard uprise is good, solid built, like tortise shell. I like the stitching and the leather zipper handle. BUT the weight puts me off.

    It's bloody heavy.... I don't like the idea of carrying heavy weight on my back. The cam system already heavy, can't afford to a heavy bag as well.

    Vanguard uprise is a bagpack la, not a sling. It can turn into a sling, if u want to.

    be reminded that the GST refund is not refund fully 7%... IIRC, it is not getting instant cash....

    It's heavy compared to other brands of similiar size. It's at least half KG heavier.....

    for guys, its not that significant really. bigger bags with good padding will naturally be heavier. its actually reassuring. more important is how the various compartments are designed so that the user can customise it to effectively distribute weight across both shoulders. that's the main benefit of a back-pack - greater comfort when lugging heavy gear out on a long shoot.

    if you're concerned abt an additional 500g, the better solution is to just pack light and leave out what you don't need. it makes retrieval much easier too.

    its really not that fun to pack everything into a big bag and end up hunched like Quasimodo.
