    Better, Stronger, For You and the planet

    Process

    f-stop is unique because we have a deeper understanding and insight about the components and materials that actually go into our products and bags. We have tried many off-the-shelf products and in the end we just we not getting what we wanted out of them. This lead to proprietary fabrics like DuraDiamond. We developed our own zippers because we wanted them stronger. We wanted a stronger sheer and pull-out strength, so we developed our own algae-based foams. We developed slow rebound running tough mid sole technology algae-based foam that we use for the protective wraps which are significantly better than the neoprene. The reason we spend the money and time to do these things is because we want bags and systems that perform better, last longer, and have a lighter footprint on the environment.

    ENVIRONMENTAL ACCOUNTABILITY

    We started our environmental accountability journey over 2 decades ago, but we really started making serious progress in 2010. It’s something we believe in strongly, and always will. Instead of using plastic Poly Bags, we switched to a cloth dust cover, to be re-used as a laundry bag, or stuff sack. 
    We are one of the only bag companies using 3D printed algae based foam. We create programs like Zero Waste and Up Pack to minimize our footprint, and in the long run keep product from entering landfills. But all this is nothing new, it’s baked into our DNA, and we will continue this process as long as we make product, because it’s the right thing to do.

    WE ARE OUR CUSTOMER

    Part of the reason our packs perform the way they do is because we understand end use. Our packs are made for a very specific reason, and we lean on our team of over 500 ambassadors to help us create systems that are tried, tested, and tested again. Are packs are put through rigorous cycle, and when they come out the other end, they have everything you need, and nothing you don’t. Every buckle, stitch, zipper, and pull is there for a reason. Our mission is to power these visual storytellers, so they don’t ever have to second guess a thing, and they can focus on what matters to them, the shot, the moment, the story.
