I knew Kata made bags for video gear, and off and on I've seen their camera bags. They're an Israeli company, although like everyone else their stuff's made in China. Their bags are kind of tough, like some Israelis I've done business with. Kata make body armour as well as camera bags, and it looks like the same designers may work on both. They don't make what I specifically use - chest mount bags - but their holster bags are quite close to what I need. I discussed a little with their support people online and eventually picked up their largest "holster" bag, the H-16. This is sized for 1-series cameras, so it's big enough for anything I'm going to carry in it.

I continue in the quest for the perfect camera bag. I've bought them all, but none of them really do what I want. Maybe my requirements are impossible to satisfy, maybe even contradictory. Specifically for backpacks, here's what I need:

29 litres - 53*29*20 cm - 1.4kgs
camera block: 29*35*12 cm

Here's a shot of my bag closed and loaded. It looks kind of like a bag.

The bag is fine as hand baggage: even BA's check-in people don't ask me about it. BA's post summer 2006) check-in policy for coach class means I can load the bag at 23kgs and carry it on legally. The bag's clearly neat enough not to arouse suspicion from check-in or gate staff.
