Testing the Sartori, F-stop

Malan Hougaard , THE South African landscape photographer and owner of Landscapegear, recently asked me to test out one of the products in his range; the Sartori, F-stop bag while on some safaris. He wanted to know how it  compared to other brands I've used in the past and its overall quality, performance, ease of use and durability that any professional photographer would want and need in any camera bag.
