Comfort

Atlas Packs Athlete

(1/2)

Important: Choose the Adventure or Athlete hip belt – otherwise you will have literally no padding on your hips. I don’t recommend using the bag without a hipbelt either. The Adventure belt is more comfortable as it provides two layers of foam padding and a wider webbing and buckle – it’s also bigger and bulkier.

F-stop Guru UL

(1/1)

Perfect for my needs. Discreet, comfortable, modular. Enough room for my Canon R5 with Rf 24-105 and a Lens like Rf 70-200 f4 or Rf 14-35 f4 and Accessories like chargers etc…

Hiking

Atlas Packs Athlete

(1/1)

I also purchased a Capture Clip from Peak Designs which allows you to fix the camera to the shoulder strap in place while hiking – a great addition to this pack.

F-stop Guru UL

(1/1)

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 - water bladder pouch, outside pockets on both sides for water bottles or Tripods, lots of internal pockets (Yes a laptop) and pouches for small items, compression straps, lash down points and its lightweight and a comfortable carry. For the Photographer, the 25L size lets me use a nice size internal Camera storage unit that has plenty of space for 2 or 3 lenses + filers + cleaning kit. Even with this storage unit there is enough separate storage volume for jackets, food, emergency gear, Gloves - everything you normally would bring on a strenuous Day hike of 5 to 10 miles

Compartment

Carry-on

F-stop Guru UL

(1/1)

The Small Pro is too small to fit all that I wanted to bring and I feel the Medium Slope is too big for the bag (where the top section is above the opening of the back panel).  In its place, I’ve ordered the MindShift Gear Backlight 26L – should hopefully arrive in the next week or so.

Size

F-stop Guru UL

(1/1)

I do like the size of the Guru UL backpack and find it practical.  However, at the moment, I am “culling” some of my less frequently used bags (maybe to make room for other bags? *wink*).   In terms of F-Stop bags, I own/owned the Guru UL 25L, the Lotus 32L and the Ajna 40L with 5 ICUs (small shallow, small pro, medium shallow, medium slope and large pro).
