The 40L Ajna is the ultimate daypack for any serious photographer. It can comfortably accommodate 2 bodies, 3 lenses and plenty of other gear when combined with aLarge Pro ICU. This backpack offers great packing versatility combined with all the features that make F-stop packs so great. It also meets most international carry-on standards, making it ideal for any frequent traveller.
The Ajna can handle a wide variety of ICU's depending on how much camera gear you want to carry and how much of the main compartment you want available for other items like clothing, food or whatever it is you like taking on a shoot. Keep in mind that all Mountain Series shells have a large top-, front- and two side pockets in addition to the main compartment.

TheLarge Pro ICUis a very good fit, leaving about 30% of the main compartment available for some other gear.
TheSmall ProandMedium ICU'soccupy about 40-50% of the main compartment, leaving plenty of space for other gear.
