I have been searching for a good, well protected insert for my Osprey Kestrel backpack since early winter. I've still yet to find something that I like! So far, I've purchased a few cheaper ones off of Amazon $20-$40 but none of them have felt "right". I'm still considering the ICU's from F-Stop but can't find a way to try one out without throwing down $100.
So my question is - what the heck do you guys use for hiking? Do you put an actual camera bag within your backpack? Have a favorite insert? Do you have any experience with the F-Stop ICU's? I'd really like to find a solution soon so I can do some comfortable hiking in the fall.
