F-stop Guru UL
High expectations were justified
I'm a hiker that likes to photograph. I want the high quality images that are provided by interchangeable lens cameras (APS-C). But as a hiker, I want to keep the kit to a minimum so I can enjoy scrambling, walking on ledges - challenging trails. This pack is quality built with hiking features - wat...

F-Stop Guru UL with Small Pro ICU
I do find that the F-Stop Guru UL is very well built and I like how compact it can get if the pack is empty besides the ICU. One thing why I preferred the Guru to the Lotus is the organiser pockets in front of the pack. This area can fit quite a number of things like jackets, beanies and other bits and pieces

Size

Everest Basic
A Great Choice!
This book sack wasn't as small as I thought. It fit binders, a textbook, my umbrella and my cardigan without them all bursting through the fabric. The product came on time and in good condition. Cheap, but great quality. I recommend these book sacks, opposed to the $20 ones at your local Walmart & T...

Laptop

Everest Basic
Will recommend it
The media could not be loaded. I needed a bag to carry my laptop on the plane did not want to bring my laptop bag that I already have. It fit my 15.6” hp laptop fine with a cheap amazon find sleeve With charger, mouse and even add 2 T-shirt to protect the laptop. Nice color ♥️

My BEST camera backpack: f-stop Guru UL: 5 YEAR review
Ultimately, the f-stop guru ultralight remains the best camera backpack i've used and one that i'd confidently buy. Again. I was already sold on the modular approach of the original mountain series and, while the ultralight range may lack the same degree of robustness, i feel fstop has successfully made weight savings without compromise for most activities
