hey guys,

A Medium fits a mounted 70-200 L vertically. The width is the same,

A Small fits a Pro body/ 70-200L and 16-35L (or similar) broken down, it is 20cm vertical same width, there is some left over room for smaller items... cables etc. Ideally the top row has the tele and the wide and body on the lower. All arranged by dividers... so you can change that according to your needs.

They sound pretty much the same size, but its hard to visualize. I can't wait for some photos to see.

Also for the ICU, the straps on the side, they are supposed to go through the rings on the inside of the pack along the frame? Does that help the pack in anyway, or is it just to hold it in place better?

Also neat spot for the rain cover :)

Is that 70-200 with or without the hood mounted? I'm interested to know if the medium would fit a 1D with 400 f/5.6, which is a few cm longer than the 70-200 without hood.

I'll probably get the large ICU anyway, but getting the medium for when I want to pack more "other stuff" would be great, IF it can handle the 400 5.6 mounted.


X-T3 | 10-24 f/4 | 18-55 f/2.8-4 | 16 f/1.4 | 80 f/2.8 Macro | 55-200 f/3.5-4.8 | 100-400 f/4.5-5.6 | 1.4x TC |

Hi sorry, I should have mention about the hood. Yes both are sized to fit with hood on (reversed).

As for the ICU tabs yes they attached to keep it in place. Although generally are not needed with the Large and XL.

Size wise, yes the are similar. But it could be said the XL and L are similar as well. :)

I designed the small to be as compact as possible but still able to hold the bread and better pro glass (wide and tele zoom) and body.

The Medium will take that and more. It will also allow for mounted body/lens access and storage. Which a lot of us like.


I should have some medium pics to share in the next week.

Does anyone know what the bungee strap that is in the mesh pocket area for? It just seems to be a loop and a cord lock.

We put those there so you can lock your keys or other important items to the bag. Nothing worse than loosing your car keys after a big day out....

Placed my order this afternoon for a Tilopa in foliage/green. Looking forward to getting it and hoping I like the color. First time I've had a bag other than black!

does anyone have any pictures showing an accurate color of the foilage green? the pictures i've seen looks like it is somewhat of a grey color with a hint of army green, is this correct?

also, with th ICU in, can one fit 1 or 2 change of clothes for overnight trips?

Barely. However, I just took mine to Haiti for two weeks, left the ICU at home since it is a huge waste of space, packed all my clothes and food in there and had room for my entire kit packed into my Domke f-3x to slide into the top of the pack. That worked. For some reason, the ICU (mine is Large) is just so awkwardly shaped to me. I can fit my whole kit into that Domke and it takes up so much less space and is still adequately padded in my opinion.

I sure it can... because the large fit my XT grip & 30D grip with Tamron 28-70mm, Tokina 12-24mm, Sigma 70-200, Canon 100mm, and Canon 17-40mm with still space to fit more...
