      Nice and roomy, well designed and built. Could use some extra padded dividers. I particularly the that it is very lightweight. The yellow interior is helpful in finding small objects. Kudos to Kata!,

          Comments about Kata Pro-Light Resource-61 PL Shoulder Bag:

          I bought this size to hold my DSLR shoulder rig, fully assembled, my 7D, lenses, and all accessories. The rig fits perfectly minus the handles (that's fine) and all of my other gear fits perfectly as well. I have no need for thelaptop pocket, but it is just deep enough to fit my shotgun mic, so I found a great use for it. The bag is large without being gigantic. Feels good to carry with handles or have strapped to the shoulder. Wonderful bag over all.

            Comments about Kata Pro-Light Resource-61 PL Shoulder Bag:

            I initially purchased this bag just for its dimensions and weight. It fits in the overhead compartment on most airlines.I didn't want to 'check-in' my camera so carry on is the only option other that mailing. Its light! and it looks good! Construction is high quality. It has alot of places to store gear and accessories. The only drawback is that its not the Resource 64!

              Just got this pack my underwater gear. It is spacious! I can fir the housing, two strobes, arms, on camera, lens, dome port and more in it. Not too big, but big enough. Easy to carry. Wish there was a bit more padding in it.

                I use this bag for dslr video and stills. Works nice with the insert rolling carrier. It seems very durable, flexible and light weight. Would give it a five star but haven't owned it long enough to determine just how durable it is.

                  Comments about Kata Pro-Light Resource-61 PL Shoulder Bag:

                  I was looking for a bag that would house my 7D with the rails and a lens attached, thus saving me the time of having to build and break every time I needed to transport everything from one location to another. This bag fills that need. The only building I need to do once unpacked is attaching the the handles and shoulder piece, if I'm going hand held.

                  The bottom compartment is perfect for holding lenses, I just wish they made it slightly bigger, so I could keep focus gears attached to the lenses.

                  I can haul my camera, rig components, monitor, lenses, laptop, and all the extra batteries, cables, and memory cards in one very lightweight well designed bag.

                  The only reason it does not get 5 stars is, I would have liked to have a couple of more pockets on the outside of the bag.
