The handsome f-Stop range bag is much deeper (front to rear) than many other bags, allowing it to accommodate DSLR’s with a more robust body than many of the slimmer cameras in the market. This means that you can put a large bodied camera, with lens attached to it right into the bag, and still have room to reach down and grab it when you need to…extremely quick access. This is a relatively simple bag, meant to hold a good amount of gear, and still stay close to the body.
The first thing you’ll notice about the f Stop model is the distinctive ‘squared-off ‘ look, which is created by the insertion of a pleat on either side of the main flap. Look inside and you’ll find a secondary, padded lid that’s tailored to keep the elements out. The f-Stop bag is constructed from a new Billingham material, FibreNyte, which is a combination of the traditional Billingham canvas, strengthened with a mix of nylon. On the exterior front of the bag is a large (10 inch wide x 7 inch high) dump pocket, perfect for cords, cables, connectors, etc. Once inside the main compartment, you'll find a removable hard base, amply padded. Two vertical dividers also come with each bag. Both can be placed in any position in the bag, and allow for infinite interior configurations. In addition, there is an interior rear pocket, with the same dimensions as the outside, which is fully padded, again, for a variety of accessories.
The rear of the bag has a full length zip compartment, and is ideal for passport, notebook, wallet, or other essential gear storage where quick access as well as security is important.
