Kalt NP10102 Reviews

It serves the purpose

I have found that this changing bag is probably best for situations where storage space is at a premium, such as when traveling. For use at home, I acquired a dark tent that, while it requires much more setup time, provides ample volume, including height, for handling 8x10 film and holders. The problem with this bag is that it is a bit too crowded vertically.

Comparable to Arista

My 4X5 and 35 mm tanks fit just fine. Bag works, zippers work. I also have the Arista bag. No real difference to speak of. Matter of preference, I think.

I was a bit worried when I was ordering this bag. I was concerned about the sleeves being too tight for my hands, or the bag not being high enough quality, or not big enough to fit my two-reel Patterson tank. Phew, it turned out to be just fine. The quality of material is amazing: it's lightweight, but also durable and slick, i.e. cat hair and other [email protected] does not stick to it. It comfortably fits my tank, scissors and everything else I need, and I never had any light leaks, despite holding some film inside for nearly an hour (I had difficulties learning how to load into a Patterson tank) and it does not make my hands go numb, i.e. it's not too tight. And the best part, it can be folded and stored in a small space when not in use. I have no suggestions for improvements, it's absolutely perfect.

Great bag for changing films!

This bag have very nice touch, low weight and very good protection of light.

It works really well.

I have read other comments and some mentioned the possibility of light leaks if use in light. I did the test with even sunlight and nothing just happened to my film. I works ok, it's cheap, easy to use... I usually use long sleeve shirts to prevent any kind of light leak for being sure. The only thing is this will make you sweat if you last a lot of time in it mounting your film on the tank.

Excellent value for the money

The cheapest bag out there, but it works great. The double zipper has a flap over the inner zipper and the arm holes are pretty snug against my arms. Plenty of room to work in the bag and it folds up fairly small.

I have been using a very old, falling apart, small changing bag to load my 120 film for processing. The developing tank taken apart, unwinding the film and backing-it was never easy in that tight space. This new large Kalt bag is awesome-very roomy and seems to be made well. I am a few rolls into it, and glad I made the purchase. Packed well, and arrived earlier than expected-thanks B&H-

How tight of a fit would it be to load a 5 reel 35mm developing tank?
Asked by: dave
I think it would be very tight, but if you are organized and systematic it might be possible. I feel like I max the bag out with 5 4x5 film holders and two film boxes.

Can this bag be used in a pinch to change lenses? Can I use it in the field in less-than-optimal conditions for that purpose?
Asked by: Titus
I wouldn't. The amount of dust and such trapped inside would be excessive. I'd rather just swap out my lenses in the open air.
