Bicycle commuting is one of those things that sounds like a universally great idea up until you actually try it. Nothing will start the day off on the wrong foot like showing up 20 minutes late (you may not be in as good of shape as you thought), dripping in sweat and pothole water.

A professional photographer needs to be able to grab their camera and any equipment at a moment's notice, and Kata has been producing camera bags with this in mind for years. For its newest lightweight bag, the company seems to have taken some inspiration from a style of handgun, to produce a backpack that can help swap lenses much more efficiently. The Revolver-8 PL backpack stores a DSLR camera and dispenses up to five lenses from a rotating internal chamber that can be readily accessed through a side opening. Read More
