The black MiniBee-120 PL Backpack from Kata may be designed to be compact, but it carries more than its weight in gear and provides more than its share of functionality. Don't be deceived by either the name or size since this pack is rated to hold a DSLR (without grip) with a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens attached, plus 6-8 additional lenses, flash, accessories and will even accommodate a 13" (33 cm) laptop. For the videographer, it can be counted on to hold a compact camcorder with all its accessories. Aeriform Dividers permit you to sculpt the "guts" to conform to whatever gear you need on a given day. For ease of use, the pack can either be opened completely or divided into two sections - upper and lower for organizational purposes. The Aeriform Dividers and Cocoon Pouches to help you get yourself sorted out gear-wise. All this is supported by a strong aluminum frame that is comfortable to carry via its Gecko harness that is molded EVA foam with 3D tapered thickness so as to provide extra cushioning where it counts.

The pack itself is made from rugged RipStop nylon that is weatherproof and is also complemented by an "Elements Cover" that both protects the pack from rain/snow but can also be used for heat deflection if the silver side is deployed. Moreover, you can use the silver side as a reflector during portrait sessions.

The tripod holding system can be used either on the back or sides for your traveling comfort. Kata has even provided a neat little water bottle pocket so you'll never be thirsty while on a day hike.

Carrying the MiniBee is easy using Kata's fully adjustable molded Gecko harness. Or, grab it by the top carry handle for rapid removal from a car or closet. It also accepts Kata's Insertrolley (sold separately) so you can load it on top of other Kata cases when rolling through an airport, parking lot or navigating narrow hallways during a gig. Just slide the MiniBee's sleeve over the Trolley and you're off. For additional storage space, the pack will also accept Kata's optional EPH System that enables you to attach additional bags to the backpack thereby increasing its footprint and enabling you to take along extra gear. As a final touch, there is an external organizer pocket for small personal items like phone, documents or wallet. The rear padded compartment is for your 13" laptop, iPad or netbook.

The Kata MiniBee-120 PL Backpack is more than multi-faceted way to travel. It's like having a camera store on your back designed to give you complete and rapid access to your gear. Strong zippers with colored pull tabs make opening and closing simple. Adjustable waist belt and sternum strap help stabilize the pack that will give you years of faithful service. Kata bags are used with confidence world-wide by pros and amateurs.
