tablet + netbook mini-messenger

As the suddenly ubiquitous tablet-computers such as the iPad®, are taken into extreme environments and increasingly integrated into professional duties, a new format of rugged, organized carry-bag needed to be created. Part of our Sidekick™ collection of small, nimble, modular bags, the Kato™ is our tablet-carry solution. Its size and layout were specifically designed around the tablet and netbook computer. Its fast-access, padded, and quilted back-pocket cradles your tablet while the other compartments allow you to store various essential gear, which no mere sport/business bag offers. So whether you are a soldier deployed overseas writing e-mails home, a pro field-photographer reviewing photos, or a busy blogger reporting from a chaotic concert, you will understand the appeal of this product.

An excellent bag !!!!!!

I've been carrying this bag for 5 or 6 years & its been a great bag really a bit over priced but It's held up to being stuffed with gear & over stuff

Great Bag for my 13" Notebook

I have been using the bag for about 3 years. Great product and will actually fit a Dell XPS-13 Notebook and blue-tooth mouse and pad very well. In addition, I carry a portable DVD player, a Power Companion, in addition to the normal notebook power supply and cable, miscellaneous office materials such as writing pads and pens, an HDMI cable, and miscellaneous other items, and there is still room for my 8" Kindle Fire HD. I like this bag so much I just ordered a second one. Not sure exactly what I will carry in it yet..


Great bag, been carrying it for a year now. Its perfect for whats it's designed for (tablets etc) however, I would love a larger version ... just a little. Configured nicely, I added some pouches, easy access to everything. If it held a standard file folder i'd be squared away. My surface pro 3 fits (barely) but not with a protection case. Not complaining ...

Great bag

Wanted a bag to fit iPad and some edc items. This has been more than practical and I have gotten numerous compliments on how good it looks. Wouldn't change anything about this bag at all except to pay a little less. Would 100% buy again.

Spanish review

Cuando abri la caja realmente quede sorprendido, la calidad, el material del cual esta hecho es impresionante.. A parte de ser resistente es muy liviano y demasiado agradable al tacto. Dan ganas de nunca separate de este BAG.. TOTALMENTE recomomendado y creo que voy a comprar muchas otras cosas de esta marca ya que quede estupefacto con mi bag. Compre el camo que estaba on sale.
