Kato™

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 Bag for my 13" NotebookReview by Coastie
Value

Price
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.. (Posted on 11/24/2016)

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 ... (Posted on 9/25/2016)

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. (Posted on 8/12/2016)

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. (Posted on 8/4/2016)

It's not that I'm easy so I give all the products a "five star" rating; it's that the products in my opinion are THAT good!. This is the third bag I've bought from Hazard4 because I am so impressed with the quality of the products AND the great sale prices. One of the few places I've found that cater to my ATACS fetish!

I've been looking for a perfect chest bag for a long range hike setup. It's very well made and designed. Perfect. It would be great as an everyday shoulder bag, travel, photography, etc (Posted on 6/25/2016)

I saw this bag earlier this year at my local Army surplus retailer and didn't buy it at that time, then they were sold out. Instead of waiting for them to restock I just had to get it at any cost! The bag is excellent for my needs, especially the tablet compartment is so readily and easily accessable. The addition of MOLLE-rigging around the bag offers alot of room for customization to suit different needs. (Posted on 8/25/2015)

I use this bag to carry aviation charts, iPad and some small survival gear aboard my aircraft. Have had it on several trips and it couldn't be better. Very good quality and lots of pockets and compartments. Excellent protection for your iPad. Get one, you will love it. (Posted on 3/20/2013)

I found the product to be well made and easy to use. I would give it a five stars if it were a little easier to access the concealed carry from outside the bag. A zipper is provided in back, but in my practice I got that zipper confused with the zipper for the i-pad pouch. Good company fast service. (Posted on 3/20/2013)
Kato(TM) Tablet + Netbook Mini-MessengerReview by Laptop J
Price

I am using this bag for protecting a 10.1" netbook that measures 10.3 x 7.1 x 0.9 inches, so it fits nicely in the main compartment of the Kato. The additional storage compartments in the Kato are great for carrying the power adapter, cord, etc. I was caught in a rain- storm and despite using an umbrella, some rain did get on the outside. But the Kato did not get soaked through and the netbook inside stayed dry. Laptop "Joe" (Posted on 12/29/2012)

This bag is ver versatile. It can handle most situations from everyday life to on the job. I'm a professional photographer and I use this bag in the field all the time. This bag holds my Canon 60D body, 24-70mm and 70-200mm lenses, plus my iPad flawlessly. It gets a little heavy fully loaded, but not uncomfortable. All in all it was money very well spent, and I highly recommend this bag. (Posted on 11/21/2012)

With years of civillian Search and Rescue/EMS work I have had many bags and slings. This is by far one of the best. The build quality is very high and features are extraordinary for the price of the bag. I use it for my iPad and either a SLR or Active Shooter kit along with a GSW/trama kit plus navigation and PPE.

I like this bag. I wanted something that would fit my iPad. This does the trick. I also like the CCW options. My only complaint is that the chest stabilizing strap was too short for my chest. (Posted on 9/14/2012)

Larger than the Maxpedition Verse Pack. Protects iPad well. Like all bags, it wil become "tight" as you fill it with items. Wish they would make a model that doesn't have the messenger style flap. Just zippers on top would be fine and easier to access quickly. (Posted on 2/13/2012)

Will the main compartment of the Kato fit my surface pro 4?
A:
Alex

I am terribly sorry about the delay, i personally went to Best Buy and took hard measurements of the product and see the fitment, because sometimes the online dimensions tends to be a little off. I have measured the Surface Pro and tried it with Kato™ it will fit in the main compartment.

From side to side it its a little snug, however the length will compensate the 12" of the Surface Pro


Thank you for contacting Hazard 4

Will the iPad Pro fit in this bag?
A:
The iPad Pro 9.7" will fit in either the main or back compartment just fine. The larger iPad Pro 12.9" (based on the dimensions on Apple's website) should just barely fit in the main compartment of the Kato length/height-wise. It will not fit in the padded back compartment, so should you choose to carry it in the main compartment, we still suggest you carry your iPad Pro in some kind of protective sleeve or pouch. For reference, the main compartment of the Kato is approximately ~12.1" L x 9" W x 3.1" D (31 x 23 x 8 cm) and the back compartment is ~11.4" L x 8.4" W x 0.35" D (29 x 21 x 0.9 cm). We hope this helps.
