Camera Backpack Inserts…?

Hi Everyone!

Just wondering if someone has any solutions to my problem - I currently own an F-Stop Guru backpack that uses the ICU system to house camera gear. I'm looking for an insert that will fit that bag, for those days where I do not want to carry around an ICU or camera gear. Essentially, without the ICU, I want to make sure that nothing on the bag's insides are torn/ripped/punctured from whatever I want to put in there (e.g. binders, clothes, etc). I'm looking for something hopefully padded. I did come across this but it doesn't look like it'd fit: http://www.mindshiftge​ar.com …rofessional-padded-insert (external link). Just note that I'm just looking for an ICU that opens from the top, and just protects the inside threads, etc. of the bag, rather than one that carries camera gear, if that makes sense!

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Domke, tenba Billingham and many others have full lines of inserts available to pick and chose from.

Me, if there are clothes involved, then I use them to wrap the gear and protect it.

I think he is trying to protect his backpack not his gear. he wants something for when he has to carry books. atleast that is what I got out of the last sentence of his/her post

I'm not sure how easy it will be the find the size you have in mind, but try searching Amazon.

Also, give F-stop a call and see if they have any ideas for you.

To make my old school backpack last longer (this was a long long time ago, hehe), I put a foam pad on the bottom and rested the books and binders on the pad.

I'd personally just get a Jansport student backpack to avoid risks to the F-stop bag.

Yup, I'm looking for something to protect the insides of the backpack, rather than my camera gear. Essentially, I want to use the F-Stop Guru as an everyday backpack and insert the ICU (with camera gear) only when I need to. This saves me on having to buy two backpacks. I've contacted F-Stop but they just recommended either using clothing or a gym bag to protect the inside threads, etc. They may look into this in the future, however, it's not something on their immediate to do list. I'm looking for something more substantial, however, I haven't had much luck. If anyone comes across anything, let me know!

How's your sewing skill? Maybe you can make something yourself. It doesn't need to be pretty on the inside.

For certain outings, I find my Loka a bit too large. I've been looking for an ICU that fits on one half, vertically, in my smaller daypack, so I can insert a body and one lens on half of the bag, and have the other items on the other half, both within easy reach. It would be organized sort of like the Gura gear Bataflae series, on the inside. I have found nothing, of course. I expect I'll have to make my own, just haven't gotten around to it.

I never thought to get an insert. I just throw my stuff in the bag. Been carrying it on a construction site for the last year. And except for some dirt on the outside, the bag is holding up extremely well.
