You get what you pay for!

If you're looking at this bag then this is likely the bag for you. The perfect bag for an adventurer. From their entire line up of mountain series I think this is the perfect size, it can be used as a carry on. Its got more straps and buckles than you'll know what to do with, the quality is typical Fstop top of the line. My favorite part is the bag being an empty shell, you get to your destination and you can take out your packing cubes of clothes and toss right into a drawer. No opening and closing 10 pockets with everything pilled on top of each other. This bag is super comfortable on your back with thick straps and adjustments everywhere for every size human. I wish I would have gotten a medium icu with a small icu, this way I think both would fit into bag at same time. My large ico and small icu don't fit inside together. Very happy with the bag and you won't regret buyign this one.

Best travel/backcountry backpack hands down!!

I'm a professional outdoor/landscape photographer and over the years have shuffled through different camera bags. Because of the nature of my work finding a camera bag that suits well in the rugged conditions I work in has proven to be quite difficult over the past few years. But let me tell you, the f-stop bag is a game changer. The f-stop Tilopa is essentially a backcountry trekking bag made for photographers. Its interior is fully customizable to fit your specific gear as well as fit other things like extra clothes and camping gear. Its comfortable, durable and keeps all my gear safe and organized. It also has been amazing for traveling!! The outer shell of the bag is water resistant and so far haven't had any problems with leeks what so ever. As much of my photography work is focused on the outdoors and hard to reach places I couldn't recommend this bag more.

Great all around

This is a great bag for all-around use. It's large enough to carry ample gear but small enough to fit into standard luggage compartments.It's comfortable and the ability to customize ICUs gives great flexibility in how and what the pack can be used for.

Great photo hiking bag! Holds weight well.

Filled this bag up! And it was still comfortable. Some of the hardest hiking is sand dunes. So I picked up this bag to help and it did a great job. I shoot medium format film and mirrorless so I have a lot of gear. I carried a Maymia RZ67 Pro ii with 2 lens and 2 film backs. I also had a Sony A7iii with a 70-200 f/4 and a 16-35 f/2.8 GM. Additional I had a Polaroid SX70, film for the cameras, a tripod, water, lunch, and lens filters.So yes this bag carries a lot. Once you figure out how to setup the bag for your size it’s very comfortable. If you’ve never set up a hiking bag before, you should definitely read up on it, or if you can go to an REI and have them show you. I use the Tilapia with the large [ICU] and it’s perfect for my equipment. If you only shoot mirrorless the medium [ICU] might work well. I like the layout of the compartments, especially the top panel. Although the computer/iPad slot is a bit hard to get in and out of. I took this to Death Valley and Mojave. In Death Valley I had the bag laying in the moist white salt of Badwater Basin, as well as dune sand, dirt, rocks, and mud. It was really easy to clean off with a damp rag and it still looks good. I [bought] their Mano water bottle attachment, but it doesn’t have a great way to attach it to the side of the bag, but I was able to. This is my preference. As many people will just use a carabiner to add a water bottle to their bag. But I find the jostling annoying when I’m in a very quiet place in nature or when I’m hiking up something unstable. Last tip: get this bag weeks before your trip. Test out different ways of distributing the weight and wearing it around as much as possible to see if you get any discomfort. You don’t want to be 3 miles into a 12 mile hike and start feeling discomfort.
