The black KT DL-ORBT-130 Orbit-130 DL; Messenger Bag from Kata is a lightweight alternative to heavier shoulder bags yet offers you the same, if not more, flexibility and functionality. It’s rated to hold your DSLR,70-200 lens, two more lenses and your 17.0″ (43.2 cm) laptop. There’s a separate pocket for your laptop that will keep it from bumping into your other gear. Constructed from a combination of ripstop and standard nylon, the bag presents a two-for-one purchase since it not only can serve as a camera bag but easily converts into a sling-style bag for everyday use. Simply remove the insert and the bag changes into a day bag for clothes, gym gear or anything else you need to carry. In addition to serving as a camera bag, the Orbit can also serve as a very nice camcorder bag. The Aeriform perforated, laminated and reinforced foam interior provides an added measure of protection to your gear.
As mentioned, the bag serves a dual purpose. The basic design features a unique unzip and flip over the shoulder strap function that allows for an ergonomic rear sling carrying mode when biking. Incorporated into the bag is a front organizer pocket in which you can stash personal items such as pens, cell phone, wallet or travel documents.
For added convenience, the Orbit can work in conjunction with Kata’s optional Insertrolley. Using the trolley sleeve on the back of the bag, simply thread the bag over the cart and stack it on top of your luggage. That will leave you hands-free to navigate through airports and parking lots.
