The small black KT DL-3N1-20 Sling Backpack provides a 3-in-1 way to store, carry and use your gear. It has the capacity to hold your pro DSLR with a mid-range zoom attached plus 3-4 additional lenses, flash and accessories including a dedicated area for memory cards. For the videographer, it can hold a compact video camcorder plus accessories.

The unique design of this pack offers you a way to gain access to your gear while still maintaining its traditional backpack format. In the backpack or "X" position with the straps across your chest this allows you to easily and rapidly swing the pack to either your left or right side by simply releasing the quick release buckles. In this way, you won't have to remove the entire pack to retrieve gear.

The pack is essentially divided in half with the bottom half designated for your photo or video gear and the top half for personals such a maps, paperwork or cell phone. The overall design maintains a thin, efficient profile. The main camera compartment comes with modular yellow padded dividers that give you the freedom to configure the pack to suit your gear needs.

The top compartment can also be used to store less frequently needed gear. There are two external zippered pockets that allow you to retrieve accessories without having to open the main compartments. The front of the pack contains tripod straps that can accommodate a small field tripod.

The pack is made from durable ripstop nylon and comes with a handy rain cover that can be readily deployed when the weather turns against you. For added convenience, the KT DL-3N1-20 Sling Backpack is compatible with KATA's optional Insertrolley or any wheeled cart. Simply thread the pack over the tow handle and you'll have the ability to place all your luggage on one rolling cart. The pack comes with a 5-year warranty from KATA.

        Comments about Kata KT DL-3N1-20 Sling Backpack (Small, Black):

        This is the first dedicated photo bag I've bought new. I plan on using this as a carry-on with my cameras. The pack is impressively equipped, rugged, and has nice straps.

        I carry a Pentax K-1000 and a 6x7, which weighs quite a bit. There is enough configurable space for a flash, plenty of film, and even an extra camera.

        DOWNSIDE - Takes a minute to use this thing, especially when extracing something as bulky as a 6x7 with a padded strap attached. The brochure says you can flip it around, but I always take it off to remove items.

        I still highly recommend this bag for the money.

        Comments about Kata KT DL-3N1-20 Sling Backpack (Small, Black):

        I'm an advanced amateur who is compulsively addicted to carrying around every piece of gear I own "just in case....".

        Hard to beat this pack for the money- well built, highly configurable. Reasonable room for a camera, 3 lenses, lunch and assorted other stuff. Small enough to carry all day.

        The "3-in-1" capability is a bit overrated, but I use it as a sling pack so not a big deal for me.

          I use this case to carry my Sony A7r, extra batteries, manuals, and lenses.

          Cons: I tried to find other ways to arrange the interior walls, but it's not all that customizable. The way they are arranged initially is really the only effective way to have them...

          Comments about Kata KT DL-3N1-20 Sling Backpack (Small, Black):

          easily fits two external flashes, 2 lenses with hoods in position (15-85 and 30) and camera body with 17-50 lens/hood in position in lower compartment ... upper side pockets hold trigger cables, a dozen aa/aaa batteries and few spare camera batteries ... and after all that, upper compartment is still empty ...

          my last sling bag was able to carry my tripod and flash stand/umbrella with the designated tripod holder ... this bag comes with two straps ... one strap threads the 2 loops at the base of the bag and the other attaches to 1 loop hidden in the slit at the back of the bag ... unfortunately the 1 loop means the tripod swings side to side at the top even after fully tightening ...

          in hindsight i would have gotten the 3n1 10 for a smaller bag that would probably also fit all my stuff, but that tripod holder isn't so hot ... if only someone made a low-cost, low-profile bag with right-hand side access and a tripod holder ...

            This is probably my eighth 'camera' bag. I like the numerous configurations with which one can wear it. The camera section handily holds my t3i, 430 EX ii, EFs 75-250, and Canon charger. Top compartment is still half empty after mini tripods, audio stuff, etc.

              Absolutely perfect bag for traveling. It holds 3-4 lenses, charging equipment, some lens hoods, and the camera itself really nicely. My only issue with it is that, while the gear is easily accessible, it isn't very intuitive to get to (if that makes any sense?) The zipper at the bottom runs along the bottom and the side, but I store my camera at the very bottom so it sort of opens everything and exposes lenses if I just want to reach for the camera body on the go. Otherwise, I love the bag.

Thanks to it's incredible design and quality of material. I would recommend this to any type of photographer

                  After looking at nearly 100 camera bags, I found this one by Kata. I wanted a bag that could hold my gear, but also be comfortable to wear whenever I go out. It has plenty of space for my camera, an extra lens or two, flash, charger, extra battery,and anything else I would need. Plus, with the versatility of swinging it either left or right, it doesn't matter how I hook the straps up. My camera is seconds to my hand. Thanks, B&H!
