The Kata LighTri-312 DL Digital Torso-Pack (Black) is designed to carry and protect a small D-SLR camera body with 2 lenses and accessories. It will also fit a Micro HDV camcorder and accessories. It is made from light, durable ripstop nylon with TST (Thermo Shield Technology) rib structure that provides protective zones for the camera where it will most likely be impacted by shock, vibration and Aeriform foam padding. There are 2 Aeriform dividers to customize the interior. The pack carries the camera in quick-draw position at all times and it can be carried either on the back or on the torso. The pack has a back support system. The main compartment will hold the camera with lens attached in the top grip position. Use the Aeriform dividers to create compartments alongside the main camera set-up for additional lenses, flash or other accessories. A cell phone pocket located on the shoulder strap provides easy access when on the go. There is a rain cover for protection in rough weather conditions. It is carried by an attached, heavily padded, adjustable shoulder strap with non-slip pad.

    A good bag that I find very comfortable & has a great balance between size & capacity. It is easy to use & the contents remain stable when the top is open.
    If Kata were to add an external zippered pocket then I would give this 5 stars - at the moment all of the small miscellaneous items are all over the place.

    Items that I have inside this bag are:
    Olympus E-M5, 12-50 + 19 2.8 + 45 1.8 lens', FL600R flash with stand, Olympus flash, 2 x 52mm filters in pouch, 4xAA batteries, lens cloth, filter wrench, Kata weather proof overbag. These fit quite well & snugly.
    I have now added the 75 1.8 lens & it is real tight (probably too tight).

    Although the bag could accomodate my D7000 + 35G/f1.8, voigtlander 20mm and a 55-200mm/f4-5.6, it never felt very comfortable when carried on the torso. When swivelled to the back the pack seemed to come away from the body requiring extreme tightening of the strap which produced more discomfort. Finally moving it from front to back required unhitching of the strap and then swinging the bag over with all the potential for an expensive spill associated with that action.

            I needed a camera bag to strap in front of me. I do lots of hicking, for a few days, and needed some rough gear to handle the elements. (i used to carry my camera alone strait, without protection, even in the rain...) I have a D300 + 17-55mm 2.8, and it fits perfect ! It does have a rain cover also, and is very rugged.

            I was looking for a compact bag or backpack for my Canon 60D
            This bag is small but enough for camera with 2 lenses.
            Fits well on back or on the front.

            Perfect Over the Shoulder Bag

                  Comments about Kata LighTri-312 DL Digital Torso-Pack:

                  I have a Canon Kiss 3 (US spec T1I) with zoom lens. I prefer a minimalist bag, it fits both lens, lens cleaner, wallet, cell phone, camera in a compact protective over the shoulder bag. I searched many bags and previously owned a Tamrac which was a little large. The 312 is a great bag, great protection but keep in mind, a minimalist bag. I have taken it all over Okinawa and it's been great. Out of the way when I don't want to use the camera, and when I need it, I flip it in front of me. The quick release top is also great. I will not fit the zoom lens while attached unless I move the partitions around but I shoot w/ the standard lens most of the time and zoom sometimes. The greatest benefit is the light weight and compact design. I can't wait to take more pictures.

                      I bought the device to carry small accesories on video shoots. The torso pack is great ergonomically and allows a variety of devices to stored owing to its shape. I have used it to carry anything from a DSLR (7D with normal sized lenses) to Handicams to misc. audio equipment. The pack sets on your torso in a way that you can still wear your regular back-packs.

                          I use this torso pack with my Olympus E -P2 Camera. I carry the camera and lens attached, extra zoom lens, flash, battery charger and still have extra space.

                          Very easy to access camera.

                          Overall it's an excellent bag that can hold two small lenses and one body.

                          disavantage is that:
                          1. a long len is hard to fit, say 105mm micro nikkor
                          2. too few pockets. seems that you can only bring a cell phone, some card-size paper along with this bag. you don't even know how to fit in a 77mm filter
