Grayman™ Series: Kato™

civilian lab® edition

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.

Great for the business individualReview by Warjss
As with every item I have bought, this is a great quality item. It is a light compact item with ample amounts of storage. I bought it as a gift, so I can not personally say much. But I would buy it for myself as well. The only complaint I have been given is the size of the biggest storage compartment. It will hold tablets, Ipads etc, but it is too small to hold a regular sized folder. Other than that, the individual takes it wherever they go. I would highly recomend this product.

Perfect Travel CompanionReview by Nonya Bidnez
Purchased the Grayman as a subtler pack which prooved itself useful while traveling abroad. This is an excellent option to my PlanB. Kato is sized just right as a personal item for boarding flights. Its smaller size was not burdensome or awkward, yet contained all items I wanted with room to spare. The Gray color with its less tactical signature did not gain any second looks. Maybe it was just me but I felt going through chekpoints with Grayman vs a FDE molle covered bag.

The removable front velcro panel was a perfect area to add a velcro Hazard4 ID holder which allowed to hide a spare credit card / ID. The middle document window pouch was very useful for a secure, but quick access to passports and travel documents.

The strap had no comfort issues. However, I do wish the strap was detachable / replaceable and found the thin strap material folded and spun on itself within the attachment point. The strap itself can be stowed under its main flap if needed. (Posted on 1/4/2018)

Can the main bay be accessed through unique flap-zipper like the regular Kato?
Yes, the the two are very similar, except for the color and material.
Customer Support answered on December 24, 2018
May I ask, what accessorie strap kits are compatible with this product?
The shoulder strap on the Grayman Kato is sewn on, (it's not removable like the regular Kato), currently we don't have any spare parts/accessories in gray.
Customer Support answered on October 5, 2018
How rain/water resistant is this bag?
It's not 100% waterproof, but the Grayman™ Series: Kato™ is just fine in light rain. In heavy rain, don't expect it to be completely dry.
