The black CC-191 PL Compact Case from KATA delivers a dynamic solution to storing and/or transporting your camcorder gear. It's designed to hold a Sony MC50, Canon XA10, XF100 or similar sized camcorder, or an HDSLR rigged with video accessories. It's a lightweight bag designed to hold your rig in safety while on location. Made from tough rip stop nylon, the bag is accented with KATA's unique Toblerone system that guards the bottom of the bag from bumps, tears and abrasions when placed on the ground. It also elevates the bag protecting it from ground moisture.

The main compartment is opened via dual top zippers that quickly expose the central compartment for rapid access to your rig. Movable internal padded dividers provide you with a way to separate your accessories from the main rig thereby protecting the camcorder from scratches. There's also a large external pocket for more storing additional accessories. The interior is made with KATA's Aeriform Foam - a lightweight, perforated and laminated material that is reinforced with EVA (ethyl vinyl acetate) and EPE (polyethylene) material.

The bag is carried by its adjustable shoulder strap or one of three carry handles on the top and sides. If desired, you can update the included shoulder strap to KATA's GSS (KT VG-604DH).

For additional portability, the bag will accept KATA's optional Insertrolley that will enable you to place one or more bags on its wheels. The Trolley easily slides through the built-in rear sleeve of the bag.

This bag also accepts KATA'S optional Modi-vers system, by which you can custom cut dividers to configure your bag to suit your individual shooting needs. The dividers are yellow that make it easy to locate small accessories in low light.

Backed by its five-year warranty (extendable to lifetime when the bag is registered with KATA), this bag offers you a host of features for both pro and amateur alike.

Toblerone
Located on the bottom and dangerous spots of the bag, the Toblerones will protect your case from bumps, tears and sudden shock by absorbing any accidental impact. Additionally, the Toblerone can elevate the bag above standing water or wet spots, keeping your case dry
Insertrolley Compatible
This bag is compatible with the KATA Insertrolley (KT VG-DTS, sold separately) - a simple yet ingenious system that allows you to carry the case, or even several cases at once, on a trolley. Simply slide the trolley through the integrated sleeve on any of KATA's compatible cases for secure and easy mobility. Even for larger cases - KATA's extendable wheel system helps to better stabilization. You can detach the trolley when you want to store it, or for maintenance
Modi-Vers Compatible
This bag is customizable through the use of the Modi-vers divider system (KT VG-MDK, sold separately). This allows you to fully customize your bag to protect and fit your gear. You can cut custom dividers to fit whatever size you need to keep your equipment snug. The yellow material makes it easy to find even the smallest components and accessories
Aeriform Foam
For unique combination of light weight and protective material, KATA developed the Aeriform Foam. It's a perforated, laminated and reinforced foam of EVA (ethyl vinyl acetate) and EPE (polyethylene) materials. The result is super-light foam that keep your gear protected

      At last, a GOOD solid built carry case for my video camera, at a great price. I now take it everywhere I go to do a shoot. I am in the Tropics in Far North Queensland,in Australia and humidity is a big problem. It would be interesting to see how this carry case performs in the heat & humidity. My previous bag (different brand) got mildew problems and rubber parts started to break up and fall away.
      The only thing I can find that is a Slight inconvenience is the double zip opening on the top. One zip has to slide away to the right and then the main zip opening slides away to the left. Not helpful when trying to grab the camera in a hurry. A small negative.
      The carry case has a strong & sturdy feel, and is well padded to protect whatever is inside. I am very happy. Thanks BH Photo. I am your customer from now on.

      I bought this case because I was looking for something to house a Canon XA10, a very compact camera and the description specifically mentioned this model. I could have packed 3 of these in it !!! I put a Panasonic AG-DVX100B in it,sold them both and bought another bag at the local camera store.

          Quality bag

          Comments about Kata CC-191 PL Compact Case (Black):

          I bought this for my Canon XF 100 camcorder. Theres plenty of room for the camcorder with the wide angle lens attached and a mic on top. And room on the side for extra gear (charger, etc). Very well made with pro-grade velcro to assist sealing out moisture and dust. My photo club purchased a larger version for our projector. They are expensive but worth the price if your gear is worth protecting.

            Excellent bag for the Canon XA-20. The handle attachment fits no problem. Room for extra batteries, LED panel and microphone. I also have to Porta-a-brace bags for other options, but this is an affordable bag with nice quality.

              I am very happy that I decided to purchase this bag, I use it for my Canon XA.. It holds everything I need when I'm on the go and has well padded sections to keep everything from knocking into each other. Everything stays secure and readily available when I need it. I would definitely recommend.

                      This is a nice bag... very solid and comfortable. I feel like my gear is well protected and the handles and straps are very comfortable to tote. My only con is that it's a little small for users with a couple of accessories (i.e. wide / teleconverters, etc.) I still make it work, though.

                            The guys out in the field regularly request these bags to replace the old gray/yellow Katas we bought over 10 years ago. These go out into the field every day, all day.

                              Great bag for Canon XA10. Just big enough to accommodate XA10 with Rode NTG-1 mounted. 1 large interior pocket extending the width of the bag and one smaller one at the end for gear. Also exterior zipped pocket (11" X 7"). Holds all my stuff. Very well made.

                                  I use this case for my Canon XA10 and I still have a lot of space for other stuff. Very comfortable and easy to use. Very Secure!
