Backpack for the camera and laptop Kata 3N1-33 - how comfortable sling-backpack

I have long wanted to change a simple bag from Loweproon the backpack, since she no longer fit into anything, and she began to delay her shoulder so much that you don't want to take the camera with you. But since I was not used to changing things one by one, I waited until the bag collapsed. And, by the way, I didn’t have to wait long, only served a year and a half, and what they were so praised for. But it's not about the bag :)

I bought myself last fall a backpack forKata 3N1-33 camera and laptop. I chose for a long time, I looked, I went to the shops, I even thought about doing it myself from an ordinary backpack, but I came across this Kata, and I don’t regret it. Although I can not say that he met my expectations at 100%.

What was needed backpack

And the task was to find a compact one.a photographic backpack, where a laptop, a carcass, two lenses, all kinds of charging and additional batteries will fit, and there will also be a compartment for a water bottle and some things. Yes, and the most important thing is that the camera can be quickly reached. A universal option was needed so that a photo bag, a city backpack, a backpack for small trips in a warm climate were not required (we were going to Thailand for a few years).

It seems to be a simple task, but I was looking for a long time. That backpack is too big, and I need it to climb into the marching one (I’m not dragging a 70 liter backpack on my shoulders, and a photo backpack in my hands), it doesn’t fit me inside, although the photo backpack is bulky (I bought one, but then I passed it), then the camera is hard to get. I went to different shops, watched. I also studied Aliexpress, there are plenty of replicas and other photo backpacks at prices several times lower than we have here in Moscow in stores.

Looking ahead, I will say that in the end I soldI bought a photo backpack and switched back to photo bags and city backpacks, after all, I’m so much more comfortable and versatile because I’m not a wedding planner and I don’t need as many photographs with me.

Life hacking - when shopping for Aliexpress you can receive cashback up to 11% through the EPN service (they have a browser plugin, a phone application). I wrote everything in great detail in my instructionswhat it is and how to use it. Well, Ali, and you already know why, because there is a lot of cheap things for photographers.

Overview of the backpack Kata 3N1-33

It seems to me, I found in the end, what Ihad. And even though we are not going to Tay for a long time now and we don’t need any functionality, the Kata 3N1-33 backpack will still be useful for me on short trips, when you take only photo equipment and the bare minimum of things with you.

+ The most important thing is the wearing system: like a regular backpack, shoulder straps crossed, sling on the right shoulder, sling on the left shoulder. There is a lap belt that retracts inside when it is not needed. Shoulder straps are also removed.
+ Very high quality everything is done: zippers, carabiners, stickies and so on.
+ Really gets a lot of photo equipment. The partitions are moved, and the carcass with a twisted lens (I’m not 24805 small) and 4 additional lenses of the usual size will calmly enter.
+ The 13-inch laptop comes with charging, or 15 inches without charging.
+ The camera really gets quickly due to the possibility of wearing a backpack, as a sling, and side access (from two sides).
+ Enough pockets for small things.
+ There is a rain cover or raincoat in Russian.
+ Climbs into our hiking backpacks (Tatonka Isis 60 and Deuter Aircontact PRO 65 + 15)


- What not to say, but what a convenient systemwearing was not the fastest access to the camera, this is when it hangs on my neck, which usually happens to me when I take a picture of the photo. In general, although it is convenient access from the side, it is terribly annoying to climb there a hundred times to change the lens. Easier, buy a separate cover on the lens and hang it on the belt.
- Fully loaded, it is very heavy. In principle, it is understandable, the technique is not a feather, but the camera backpack itself can be made easier (it weighs 2 kg).
- Still, in the compartment for things not so muchbreaks as I would like: a bottle of water and a windbreaker. In fairness, I want to note that if there are only a couple of lenses (like mine), then below, where the photographic equipment is located, there is a place, and there you can also put something, removing the partitions (I put pies and spare socks when Kharkov went :))
- No mount for tripod.
- Already wrote in the pros, but it can be attributed to the minuses - it fits in hiking backpacks, but with great difficulty.
- High price. Too pulled up, well, it does not cost so much.

Choosing insurance is now unrealistically difficult, so to help all travelers, I compile a rating. To do this, I constantly monitor forums, study insurance contracts and use insurance by myself.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
