The black KT DL-N-3 Nimble-3 DL Compact Satchel Bag from KATA is a small messenger-style bag designed to hold a small/medium DSLR with two lens kit and flash, a tablet computer and personal effects. There's a front zippered organizer pocket for your phone, pens and note pad. The rear of the bag has another zippered pocket for documents, maps and other collateral material. The side has a stretch pocket for a small water bottle.

The padded insert is formatted to hold your DSLR facing down with an 18-200mm lens attached. An additional 18-55mm lens and flash can also be stored. Your computer is held in its own padded compartment. The interior has a dedicated iPad/tablet sleeve that separates it from the rest of your gear.

The Nimble is made from ripstop and standard nylon. It's carried by its padded shoulder strap or top grab handle for briefcase style transport. The shoulder strap can be connected with a dual purpose buckle that clips on or threads through the diagonal slit on the coupler.

The Nimble-3 also includes KATA's Modi-vers dividers that allow you to customize the inside to suit your gear needs. These dividers can be cut to size and positioned to exactly fit your gear. They are made of a yellow material that give you added visibility when you're working in low light. The Nimble-3 is warranted against manufacturer's defects by KATA.

      Decent bag when you want to travel light. Caveat: Lenses and not well secured in place, other than that is a nice bag. Great for short day trips in the city.

        Comments about Kata KT DL-N-3 Nimble-3 DL Compact Satchel Bag (Black):

        I bought this to carry my Olympus OM-D with a couple of lenses. I wanted something compact but with enough room to add maybe one more lens or an external flash, as well. Tablet pocket is a plus, even though I may never use it. The other bags I considered were LowePro Event Messenger 100, Tamrac Jazz 2 Messenger Bag, and Tenba Vector 1. In the end, I went with the Kata Nimble-3 DL.

        The strap is comfortable enough, and it has enough room for my OM-D, Olympus 12-50 mm and Panasonic 45-200 mm lenses plus battery charger, manual, extra battery, cards, etc. It is already lightweight and the rearrangeable insert provides adequate protection for the gear. So far, I am happy with it. My only gripe, if there is one, would be that some may consider the sides of the bag a bit unprotected from the elements since it does not seal with a zipper (sides kind of fold in when you close the flap), but I have not have the chance to test it (thankfully).

        Overall, I recommend it.

          The bag is very convenient, it allows me to put other things and therefore do not take two bags. Avoid the scratches that remains open inadvertently. It is resistant to rain and snow

            I bought it because it wasn't the typical camera bag. This one fits right on the side, it almost has the shape to fit on your hips, so it's easy to carry.
            It has lots of space, you can carry a full camera, another lens and a body or a third lens, plus cables, extra battery and the charger without problems.

              Comments about Kata KT DL-N-3 Nimble-3 DL Compact Satchel Bag (Black):

              This is perfect for the Olympus OM-D. It easily fits the camera with a lens, plus another lens or two. I have the camera, an extra lens and my sunglasses in the main compartment. Other compartments hold various accessories. I bought this for travel and really like that it has a zipper compartment on the outside next to my hip, and that it's lightweight with room for a notebook, iPad and water bottle. There's also another small zip compartment under the flap but no zip over the main compartment - just a flap with velcro and a clasp.

              Note that it doesn't fit a laptop. I have the Macbook Air 11" and it doesn't fit in the padded area. An iPad or a kindle will fit but not a laptop.

              Also - the yellow interior is great! I'm happy with the size and the top handle. It looks like a messenger bag, rather than a clunky camera bag.
