The Kata Pro-Light Bumblebee-220 PL Backpack (Black) is a multi-featured professional backpack designed to provide the best carrying, storage and working solutions. The pack is made from lightweight, durable Ripstop nylon and polyester mesh exterior, with a 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 that is made of perforated super light laminated and reinforced EVA and EPE foams. It is also has additional protection from a specially formed, foam encased, spring steel Spine Guard and Aluminum Skeleton stave arcs across the mid section. The Yelloop interior is a bright yellow material for viewing the contents with ease and attaching any optional Modi-Vers dividers. The modular interior allows removal of various components that are not necessary for a specific shoot.

The Pro-Light Bumblebee-220 PL backpack has a main compartment that is designed to hold 2 to 3 D-SLR camera bodies, up to 8 lenses (space for up to 500mm but with tripod mount dismantled), flash and many other accessories. Use the modular Aeriform dividers and Cocoon Pouches to custom fit the needed gear. Access to the main compartment can be from top, bottom or any other point; so if a specific item is needed the bag opening will not expose its content to prying eyes. A rear laptop slot will hold most laptop computers with a screen up to 17".  An external top pocket and 2 side pockets can carry many accessories. A flexible pocket on the other side will easily carry a water bottle. There is a double purpose pocket on the bottom front of the bag can be used either for additional storage or as a docking base to secure a small tripod.

The Bumblebee Backpack has a tripod sling that can be attached to either the front or the side of the backpack and a detachable Double-sided Elements Cover with mesh pocket that is used for protection in all weather and environment conditions. There is an Aeriform camera strap which is light, flexible and airy that can be used individually or interconnected to the two designated loops on the backpack harness. The pack has a carry handle and an advanced ergonomics harness system that consists of a Gecko Harness made of molded EVA foam harness straps that has 3D tapered thickness. Micro hatch texture secures it in position firmly and comfortably and its shapely contour fits the body organically, a soft molded 3D foam back for comfort, support and ventilation and a Clinch-Clasp Sternum Strap that has an aluminum clinch connection. It also consists of an adjustable and removable waist belt that will fit itself perfectly to a photographer's shape and build, 2 specially designed connection strap loops for the included Aeriform camera strap and an EPH (Ergonomic Photo System) that is designed with connection tabs to enable using other Kata products. There is an Insertrolley connection for placing the pack over a rolling bag handle; when this is in use the harness tucks out of the way and waist belt can be removed and stowed away.
