Our backpacks are weather resistant, not waterproof, which indicates protection from submersion. They can be exposed to light rain or snow for a short amount of time, however using a Rain Cover will add more protection.
f-stop Camera Inserts are weather-resistant, not waterproof. The insert provides padded protection and organization while carrying inside the pack or in storage. It’s not intended to be carried long-term as a stand-alone solution.
f-stop Ultralight (UL) packs are more compact than Mountain Series packs and offer a solution when nimble will be important. These camera packs are designed for camera gear and kits that are not very heavy, up to 7kg/15 lb, because they do not have heavily padded shoulder harnesses are made of ripstop nylon covered with 120 DWR coating, while the Mountain series have a 420 DWR coating.
The UL series is designed for shorter day trips and weather conditions that are not very harsh, while the Mountain Series can be used for longer trips and can be exposed to light rain for a small amount of time. The UL packs are meant for camera gear that is not very heavy, up to 7kg/15 lb. The biggest ICU that is recommended for the UL packs is the medium-sized one, because of weight limitations.
Both series have a harness system that is designed to help you better distribute the weight on your shoulders and waist. The 3 biggest packs from the mountain Series have extra padded shoulder straps that ease the weight on your shoulders. They also have an internal multipurpose sleeve that can fit up to a 17’’ laptop, while the rest of the packs can fit a 15’’ laptop.

The listed measured pack volume includes all exterior pockets and compartments.
We do not design packs specifically for taller people however all our packs from the Mountain Series and UL series can be adjusted to fit any body build, size, and physique.
MOLLE (modular lightweight load-carrying equipment) is a universal attachment system compatible with thousands of accessories, including the f-stop Mano bottle holder, Lens Barrels, or the Navin Pouch.
Shallow inserts have a uniform external depth of 5’’/12.7 cm throughout. The Slope insert bottom depth extends on the deeper side to 7’’/17.8cm making it suitable for gripped camera configurations.
The size of the rain cover depends on the backpack that you are using. Small Rain Cover fits the Guru UL. Large Rain Cover fits the Kashmir UL, Loka UL, Lotus, AJNA, Tilopa, Sukha, and SHINN.
The Navin can be used as a chest-carry rig by connecting two pairs of Gatekeeper straps (one pair attached to the top part of the pack, around the shoulder straps and the other pair should be attached to the bottom of the sides of the pack) Alternatively the Navin can be attached on the hip belt using the MOLLE system.
