I'm of the opinion that there is no perfect bag ... and have an astounding collection of near perfect bags to prove my point. That said, after getting a Hong Kong version of the F-Stop XL Pro ICU, I stuffed it in my Loka and took most of the kit with me on a quick trip to SE Colorado. When I grabbed the pack and set out for a hike long the nearly dry Arkansas river I was reminded of just how well made the F-Stop stuff is. The pack, fully loaded, is 10,000 times better than stuff from everyone anybody else who makes "photography" packs. Well made, carries nicely, and the rear-opening is perfect.
Like Steve, I think they need to figure out how to run a real business. But when it comes down to using their stuff, it just works better than the other guys stuff. Is it worth the hassle? Only you can say for you, but for me, yes. I have three F-Stop bags, the aforementioned Loka, a Satori EXP and a Kenti. Three bags, three niches filled with the closest to perfect bags I own.
