    That is not high contrast lined and can be found in coyote?

    Also the PALS attachment seems different.

    Also the non-mil is sold under the Civilian Labs brand, not Hazard4.

    Got your message, but I can't respond (not enough posts yet).

    To answer your question, here's a pic with the Kato + Bottle Pouch:

    -- The color of the liner

    -- The attachment system on the back (the civilian version does not have the same PALS/MOLLE set up or the D-ring

    -- I can't be sure, but I swear they appear to be made from different materials

    Thanx, Coe!

    I went with the same setup.

    That's a fine looking setup. Hazard4 really likes plastering their logo all over the place though. :-P .... Nothing wrong with that - just saying.

    That's not true when you see the actual bag vs. photos.

    Most of those are removable velcro patches.

    Vinyl velcro patches....peel & stick!
    The Kato bags can be "de-badged" in ~20 seconds.
    Without sharp tools.
    By a four-year-old.
    Like my youngest GrandSon, who thinks it's funny to hide them from me....
    He stuck one on Sajiko's collar.

    Yeah, I got some extra patches for other stuff, but right now, they're stuck to the bag.

    What can I say, I got a little carried away. :)

    (that is if you're referring to my pic)

    They also have some other neat morale patches available.

    Wouldn't have found it, except he was trying to hide the Pug.

    Hey guys, I thought you might like to see how well Metropolicity's SkinthXL in coyote looks against Hazard4's coyote. [​IMG]

    Sweet! I have an OP1 there right now. Plan to replace it with some Skinth Love. Maybe a custom panel. Thanks for the pics!

    V-e-r-y nice SAK. I've pretty much settled in with my setup. One thing I've found with the Kato is if you're hauling a laptop/netbook, there really isn't any extra space for magazines or other items in the main compartment.

    I knew this was a limitation when I purchased the bag and that's fine for my daily commute since I tend to travel pretty light. However, for trips, this is pretty limiting and on my recent flight to Phoenix, I had to fallback to my 5.11 COVRT 18 backpack. So, now I'm eyeing a larger messenger to compliment the Kato. Probably something from Timbuk2 or I'll wait for the Sherman or one of the other new bags coming out later this year from Haz4.
