Kata Bumblebee DL-210 Overview

  • 1Description

The Kata D-Light Bumblebee-210 Backpack (Black) is a stylish, functional lightweight, protective backpack which is designed to carry camera gear and everyday personal effects, and can easily convert into a simple and useful daypack when not using or carrying a camera. The pack is made from lightweight, durable Ripstop nylon and polyester mesh exterior with TST rib structure that provides protective zones for the camera where it will most likely be impacted by shock, vibration plus Aeriform foam that is made of perforated super light laminated and reinforced EVA and EPE foams. The Yelloop interior is a bright yellow material for viewing the contents with ease and attaching any optional Modi-Vers dividers.

The D-Light Bumblebee-210 Backpack is designed with a double compartment concept; the lower compartment has a special padded camera insert and Aeriform dividers to fit a D-SLR with standard lens attached, 2-3 lenses (up to a 70-200 f/2.8 not attached), flash and accessories. In the upper compartment there is plenty of space for personal effects. When needed the camera insert can be removed and the zippered partition between the two compartments opened to create one large storage space. A rear laptop slot will hold most laptop computers with a screen up to 15.4". A variety of external pockets will store accessories and personal gear that need rapid access such as, wallet, phone, water bottle etc. The pack has tripod connecting straps that can be attached to the side of the backpack and a detachable rain cover for protection in rough weather conditions.

The D-Light Bumblebee harness system has a 3D soft molded foam back for comfort and ventilation, an Aeriform foam padded harness which is uniquely shaped to provide comfort and non-slip grip, an adjustable sternum strap and a stabilizing waist strap. There are 2 specially designed connection loops for the Reflex E camera strap that is used to carry the D-SLR camera comfortably and take the camera load off the neck. The EPH (Ergonomic Photo System) is designed with connection tabs to enable interconnections with other Kata products. There is an Insertrolley connection that is used to place the pack over a rolling bag handle, when this is in use the harness simply tucks out of the way.

    Kata Bumblebee DL-210 Reviews

    D-Light Bumblebee-210 Backpack (Black) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 58.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice bright interior I purchased the bag to carry my Nikon D90, a 18-200 zoom Nikor lens, a Nikor Coolpix, and a Dell 15 inch laptop which will not fit if I have a cover on the laptop. The yellow interior helps in locating things in the bag for low-light conditions which is exactly why I purchased it. The zippers can not be locked together and no owner information card, manual, or registration was included. I emailed Kata but never heard back. I could get along without a owners manual except for the fact that the bag has more straps than a 10 passanger race car would have and I like doing things correctly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from rugged w/room for other non camera gear I've given it 5 stars because for the price and it's feature. I can't seem to find it anywhere in the market. So far I haven't put it to use yet but as for from I can see it's everything I wanted for my day trip. Padded space for my camera gear 18-200 on canon 50D body and speedlights. There are still room for my other (to buy) gear. The space for your non camera gear is also pretty spaces. I can easily fit a sweater and a sandwich in there. With all the gear in the bag I wear it around my house. It was pretty comfortable due to the extra padded. I'd recommended this to all my friends.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent bag - good size / form factor I bought this bag to be somewhere in between my National Geographic bag & my shoulder bag. It fits the job just about perfectly. It's comfortable & with the addition of a bungee tie, holds one compact light stand on the outside comfortably. The lower compartment opens to your gear with the usual velcro compartments, the upper compartments are more open for your other miscellaneous stuff.If I have one complaint it's that the lower compartments feel a bit squished at times & I think my newer (less durable) plastic lenses have some weight against them during travel & may eventually become damaged. I should probably either stuff it less full of gear or shuffle the lenses around so the cheap plastic ones aren't on the bottom.I would buy it again & would recommend it to a friend.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great to get everything on the plane. This bag provides lots of padding. It's pretty big on me considering I'm only 5,2 with a small frame. It was great for getting all my gear on the plane as a carry on which included my 11inch laptop, flash, nn4, and a couple of lenses. I'm sure it can fit a 15 inch labtop or more. Used a separate bag for tripod. I used a smaller camera bag (low pro versa 200) when I actually got off the plane and for everyday use. Less padding but it let me carry less weight and allowed for the tripod to be hung down the middle or across at the bottom. It also let's me access my camera from either side when I sling it around.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from As good as it gets Pros: - Very well designed. - Sturdy. - Can hold my Canon 7d with battery grip without any problems. - Laptop compartment big enough to fit a 15 inche laptop. - Nice weight Cons: - Slightly expensive but worth it. I carry it each day to go to work with my laptop and camera and I'm enjoying it immensly. The price wasn't a turn off at all.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Quality! Getting ready to embark on a 6-month journey for a photography project/school, I needed to find a backpack that could carry my Nikon D7000, my 3 lenses, and my macbook, and still have some extra room for clothing or a packed lunch. After researching, I finally decided on this bag. I like the quality of the bag, it feels super durable. The only reason I gave it 4 stars, is because of how it opens to get to my camera. You have to lay the bag down so your gear doesn't fall out. Other than that, I love the bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from As advertised As the resident amateur at work, I do some very light photography when we can't afford a pro or when it's a relatively simple set of shots to get. But it's frequent enough that I found myself hauling my messenger bag w/ laptop and my camera bag and my tripod pretty frequently. I also travel a few times a year and like to bring my camera.So this bag -- which is still fairly light even with my 7D, two lenses, battery charger, laptop, and laptop charger -- fits my needs perfectly. I can haul my gear to work in the same bag; I can take it on a plane easily; and I can cram plenty of extras in there with no problem.Having the camera on the bottom pouch means you have to take the bag off, lay it on its back, and then get it out, but that's a minor issue and not really what this is for.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Provided it's worth in Alaska backcountr I took this backpack on a wilderness fly fishing trip into the Alaska backcountry near southwest corner of Denali N.P. I carried a small HD video camera, a GoPro HD waterproof camera, and a small digital still camera. Also in the pack, extra GoPro mounts, extra rain gear for me, bug juice, water bottle and carried a tripod on the exterior strap. The pack was heavy but rode well. I never felt off-balance crossing some strong current streams. The included rain cover was priceless. We had Alaskan drizzle for several days running and it kept the gear dry. I used the same pack on a domestic news gathering trip during Hurricane Irene and felt it carried enough stuff. The internal dividers are a blessing for sensitive gear, and a little annoying when you are just trying to use it as a backpack, but most are removable. Workmanship was excellent. In a month it's had a lot of abuse and doesn't show it.
