    mine is kata. I don't know what is revolutionary with the thinktank one to do a press release about it like it's a novelty!

    Haha pretty much. Im a huge think tank fan. Never been real keen on the Kata stuff ever since I bought my first Kata backpack. Everything seems like its overdone and just gets in the way. Especially their new backpacks. Think Tank is well put together, is discrete, gets the job done, and lasts forever.

    The great thing about their Hydrophobia for the bigger lenses is that it actually can stay mounted to the lens. If you think it might rain, just put it on. If it does rain, pull it out but if it doesnt you just leave it all packaged up tight on the lens.

    That's what I tell every single customer, shit's WAY needlessly over-engineered.

    Ever hear of a secondary air injection system on a Porsche 911?

    Completely unnecessary.
