    This is the first equipment bag I've owned. I've used others, and this probably isn't the favorite bag I've used. The tripod straps are nice on paper, but they easily come loose and fall off the bag, they also don't hold the tripod very securely. But many bags don't have this option, so I can't complain too much.

    It does seem to hold a lot of equipment. There are many compartments, nooks and crannies, and the dividers inside are customizable so it's pretty versatile. It might be a little too bulky but I haven't decided yet. It's also waterproof, though I haven't tested this yet.

    Overall it's a pretty good bag. The trolley system that you can buy is nice for the price if you want to get the bag on wheels, but you get what you pay for (the construction seems a little flimsy).

    This is my second bag for my second Sony nx5u cam and it is well padded, very deep and the yellow interior is great for dimly lit reception venues. I do not love the strap connector that holds the camera in place. You have to put a lot of stress on the camera to tighten it properly and even then I feel it needs more support to prevent movement. I have a petrol bag and when I sell one of the two cameras, this bag will go with it.

        Very sturdy, well-designed camera/equipment bag. It's extremely roomy but still pretty lightweight. Even the laptop compartment is adjustable, allowing for screens even larger than advertised (I didn't expect to be able to fit my 18'' at all, only tried it on a whim, but it slides in fine with a bit of finagling!) (although slightly less well-packaged--but really, only slightly.) Really, worth every penny. I love this bag.

        An excellent bag

        By Fourthline59

        from Toronto, ON, Canada

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about Kata OMB-74 One Man Band Bag, Small:

        This bag is nicely designed and well made. Heavy canvas exterior, solid zippers, lots of outside pockets and light weight. Supplied velcro partitians are good for lightweight stuff but I added foam blocks in the bottom to hold the lenses and camera body securely. Two interior pouches come with it and they velcro where ever you want, perfect for all the small stuff. The interlocking handles are a neat design - way better than velcro because you can open or close it fast with one hand. With the flat bottom and rigidness, the bag will stand upright. With the hinged lid flipped open and resting down the back, the entire length and width of the bag is wide open for taking gear in and out quickly. Also, carry straps are attached to the side of the bag not the lid, so it can be carried without doing up the main zipper. Handy when needing to move quickly. I hunted around for weeks and didn't see anything nearly as well thought out as the Kata OMB-74. Highly recommended. But you do need to do your own modifying inside the bag to keep gear safe.

          Comments about Kata OMB-74 One Man Band Bag, Small:

          I use this bag to carry my Panasonic AC130, along with my mics and laptop. It's a lot of room for a good price. Very sturdy. It comes with a lot of velcro compartments that I find very handy. Since I have to shoot pictures sometimes as well, I will put padding on top of the AC130 and put my DSLR on top. Since I am 5'2" and female, I would not recommend using this bag to just run around with although I have seen my male counterparts do just that. I have this bag in the extra small, which is what I use when I know I am going to run around a lot with less gear.

                  Haven't gotten much use but it's a really nice bag. It's pretty solid and feels durable, everything from the solid sides to the padded zippers which don't feel like they will wear out any time soon. I guess my only complaint is the dividers that come with it are kind of limited in how you can set it up. But you can order more of those to customize the shape.

                          I bought this to cart my Panasonic AG-HMC150. It fits snugly inside, and there's room for EVERYTHING -- 2 wireless mics, shotgun, cables, extension cords, digital audio recorder, headphones, even a 15" laptop and my backup camcorder. It is a bit unwieldy to carry long distances, so I use a luggage cart. The strap is the most comfortable strap ever (the shoulder piece is made of a soft rubber). A great value from B&H (I got it on sale for [$])

                          This is my second bag for my second Sony nx5u cam and it is well padded, very deep and the yellow interior is great for dimly lit reception venues. I do not love the strap connector that holds the camera in place. You have to put a lot of stress on the camera to tighten it properly and even then I feel it needs more support to prevent movement. I have a petrol bag and when I sell one of the two cameras, this bag will go with it.

                            The special offer B&H offer made my choice on this bag. First, this bag is using very strong materials and hence protect your camera better. I use another camera bag from Kata before I buy it and when I move all my stuff to this bag and it still has a lots of space..... also, it is easy for access to my camera and this is very important.

                            If your buy this bag and you have to buy the Kata trolley which fit well with this, and also you can put one more Kata equipment case into the same trolley on the top and carry a through gear but still a one man band production.

                            Good for travel.

                              I travel a lot a for work as a professional videographer and was looking for a bag that could hold a Panasonic AG-HMC 150 video camera, charger and batteries, a wireless mic system, shotgun mic,a few shortie cables, SD card media and spare AA batteries.

                              This was not the bag for the job.

                              While it is well-padded, it doesn't make good use of the space.

                              This bag probably works best with a camera that is even smaller than my Panasonic.

                              This is the first equipment bag I've owned. I've used others, and this probably isn't the favorite bag I've used. The tripod straps are nice on paper, but they easily come loose and fall off the bag, they also don't hold the tripod very securely. But many bags don't have this option, so I can't complain too much.

                              It does seem to hold a lot of equipment. There are many compartments, nooks and crannies, and the dividers inside are customizable so it's pretty versatile. It might be a little too bulky but I haven't decided yet. It's also waterproof, though I haven't tested this yet.

                              Overall it's a pretty good bag. The trolley system that you can buy is nice for the price if you want to get the bag on wheels, but you get what you pay for (the construction seems a little flimsy).
