Does anyone have some pics of the F-Stop bags with equipment loaded? I saw the company's official flickr stream and AirRick's excellent review. Anyone have others? Tilopa, Satori or Lotus?

Also, does anyone know which models you can use as a domestic airline carry-on without any problems?

I have the new Tilopa pre-ordered and I am just waiting to get it shipped to me however I hear they are having a few issues from the manufacturer. It will get here soon though and I will be sure to post a full review once that happens.

Ok guys tell me what you want to fit in it and I can tell you which will be best. I use both the Tilopa and the Satori exclusively for my work.

I should post this too...this is the smaller one , the Tilopa. And in fact you could get way more stuff in there too this was just a shot of what i carry if im traveling light. I can also fit a300mm f4 and a24-105 + 1.4tc if i need to.

If i need to take more than that i use the satori, it has the same size camera compartment as the Tilopa so you can fit the same amount of camera equipment but it has way more space above and around the camera compartment for things like extra clothing,safety gear and supplies.

How much extra room? Do you think you can take some side by side photos from the back with both bags open? As I said, I have the Tilopa on pre-order...but was told by f-stop that I could exchange it if I need something bigger. I just want to get an overall idea even though I know the knew Satori is 15% bigger.

ok yeah i'll try and do that for yo tomorrow. As you say though , the newer versions have slightly different sizing so i'm not sure how much use it'll be. It also might be hard to convey in a photo as there are other minor size differences to other dimensions which don't at first seem like much, but actually make quite a bit of difference.

On the Satori for example, you can fit a considerable amount of stuff either side of the camera compartment whereas on the Tilopa you can really on squeeze that flask you can see in the photo.

Also the front and top pockets are probably at least twice the volume on the Satori. The top pocket is actually quite big, i usually get lunch, 2 pairs of gloves and a spare pair of goggles in it. On the tilopa though i can really only get goggles in there.

Fair enough. I appreciate it regardless. I have also head that you can cinch the Satori down alot to make it smaller. I originally had my eye on the Satori, but couldn't find it anywhere, with the new increase in size, 15%, I felt it was just going to be way too much bag for me. The older one however...is still an option....if I can find it. That is why I pre-ordered the Tilopa...but who knows when the hell it is going to get in. I hear they are having issues with their Asian manufacturers.

OK, as promised here are the photos for comparison. As was pointed out though, the new versions are different. IN these pictures the satori and Tilopa have the same size camera block. I spoke to the F-stop guys this morning to confirm the new sizing.

New camerablock sizing will be as follows "medium - 11" tall, large - 15" tall, XL - 19" tall. all are 7.5" deep & 11" wide"

The new Satori will have the XL camera block and the new Tilopa will have the Large camera block. The sizing of the new bags is also different.

Haha no i need it! I've been using it for nearly 18 months now. I work full time as a photographer in some fairly demanding conditions and i figure I have probably put more than 2000 hours on it by now. The things still look like new!!

But I will be getting the new ones when they come in and i'm going to do an extensive review with videos on what you can fit in them. I'll post it up on here and on my blog.

Hi there, sorry to bump up this post or whatever, but i'm new to this forum, just wondering if I could ask a couple of questions...
It says on the website you can only fit a 15" laptop in the tilopa, but i was wondering if anyone thinks it would be possible to squeeze a 17" in, or would that be asking too much?
If not, do you reckon you could bring the satori on a flight as hand luggage? Cheers...

I would think a 17 would be too much for the Tilopa. I have the new Satori in black and it is an amazing bag. I have flown with it a few times and haven't had any issues with having it as a carry on. I will be reviewing the bag soon as well...

Thats good that you have had no issue flying with it. It's quite a bit bigger in length than most " carry on legal" bags.
