Bag envy! I simply cannot resist trying a new flavor every now and then. Some work, some go to the, well, I'll use that occasionally pile. (Then of course, rarely do you, if ever) This week, it was the Kata R-102 rucksack. Adorama ran a sale, well, it wasn't a great sale in reality, but at least it had free shipping. I was curious enough about it, I decided to bite. I've never had a Kata bag, so this will be interesting. I do like the light weight of it, for hiking, so I thought I'd try it. I was not crazy about my Lowepro Mini-trekker the last time I hiked with it. I found it a good bag to carry gear in, but not such a great bag to carry??? I found that it did not vent at all down my back, that I did not like. I do have a couple of other Loweprowes, ok, 3. But none like the Kata. I picked up another phototrekker, unloading the Pelican roller I had, that I didn't like. green did nothing for me. Then I have a Rover AW and a compurover AW. I could probably unload the rover aw, but the compurover I carry to work, hehe. Anyway, Adorama's sales flyer got me, so Kata, here we come!
