    I am trying to decide between two bags and was wondering if anyone has either of these or some suggestions, b/c no stores near by carry them so it will be a "blind" mail order.

    The two I've seen that I like are the Kata Sensitivity V, and the Crumpler Keystone.

    I want to get as small as I can get, but to hold my equipment...
    Nikon D80 w/ 17-55mm
    10.5mm fisheye
    speedlight flash
    & and a few other small items

    Thanks for the help.

    Welcome to the forum.

    I have found that backpack bags aren't as big as I though they were when looking on the internet. I was looking at a Lowepro Orion or Orion Trekker...but when I actually saw them in a store...the gear compartment was disappointingly small. I ended up with a Lowepro Computrekker AW and It's really pretty good...except that it's a backpack.

    The backpack style bags are hard to get in and out of and you need some space to open it up. Next time I'm going to look at the 'sling' style bags.

    Sorry, I can't help you with the two models you listed.
