Are there any more pre order discounts on the Loka? How about for a current Tilopa owner? :D

FIshrising, At 6' 7 I'd say you made a good choice with trying out a Tilopa, you will get a little more vertical in the torso height on the Tilopa than the Loka.

I would be interested to hear how it works out for you.

I decided to order a Loka with all three ICU's to complement my Think Tank Retrospective 10. Hopefully, this will be a great combination for both short trips and longer hikes with and without a tripod.

That's pretty much what I do now with my Tilopa. Works great and the Loka should be good as well.

i was comparing the specs of the loka and tilopa (below), it doesn't seem like there is too much physical difference between the two bags. once you get the bags, would it be possible to post some side by side comparisons?

i'm only 5'10" and 160lbs, it seems like the loka would be the recommended size, but i'm hoping to be able to fit a camera with lens mounted and 1 additional lens plus one night's change of clothes (if it can fit 2 nights, then great!)

Loka
Volume: 37 Liter / 2,260 Cubic Inches
Weight: 1565 Grams - 3.45lbs (No ICU)
Dimensions: 12.6” x 23" x 8.5"
Internal Compartment Dimensions: 12” x 22” x 8”
Torso Length: 18.5”

Tilopa
Volume: 50 Liter / 3,100 Cubic Inches
Weight: 1392 Grams - 3.07lbs (No ICU)
Dimensions: 12” x 24" x 10"
Internal Compartment Dimensions: 12” x 22” x 10”
Torso Length: 18.5”

The physical difference is striking. The Loka is just over half the size of the TIlopa. That's a big difference.

The above is not all that accurate. It does have the appearance of being much smaller but it is still 37L. I can not discuss the Loka too much until it is out (POTN's request).

But will quickly slide in... the main difference in the bags is where you would put a lap top sleeve on the Tilopa. It is pretty much gone giving it a much more active and lower profile. The height has been trimmed a bit as well.You can easily fit your request in with a Small or Medium ICU. If you want more info please email our support team or myself.

All of our ICU's fit a body mounted Pro DSLR and 70-200L... and more.

Regards

I'm really interested in the Mala bag Ian but, I was wondering if it can fit a 1Ds MK III with 70-200 II attached. Thanks!

Would the Loka be able to fit under the airline seats by any chance?

"Airline Carry-On Safe - Below the legal size limits for airlines"

From their website: Loka (external link)

I am interested in one myself. Waiting for reviews and hands-on!!

They meant that the Loka will fit in the overhead bins, but I am wondering if they will fit below airline seats (so I can bring another piece of luggage and put that in the overhead bin instead).
