4. Kata Ergo-Tech Sensitivity V
A great camera-and-laptop backpack, especially for city dwellers and frequent fliers who need to fit a moderate amount of gear, including a 13-inch-or-smaller laptop, into a relatively small space. Two frontal U-shaped flaps access top and bottom compartments separately, and each functions as a flexible pocket on its own. The main compartment is divided in two with a zippered division that can be undone to create one large space. The top section comprises an internal organizer panel for personal effects, a detachable elongated zip pouch and a small roaming media pocket. While the lower section has Elasto-Guard sleeves to secure and protect delicate equipment (if not in use these just fold away to allow for other gear), and Flexi-Shield reinforcement runs along the sides. A large rear safe guard laptop compartment will hold up to 12-inch laptops. One low-profile, high-capacity side pocket can hold water bottles, and a small external music media pocket will allow easy extraction of earphone cable. Two media pouches are integrated into the shoulder straps for quick access of phone or MP3 player.
