F-Stop Gear has introduced Kashmir, a camera backpack designed specifically for women. Kashmir is billed as an ultra-light camera pack with a harness system and torso height adjusted to complement a woman's body, something accomplished through the use of an Ultra Lite EVA-padded hip belt and what the maker says are 'female specific S-shoulder straps'. The bag is being funded through Kickstarter.

Kashmir weighs a bit over 1kg and is compatible with F-Stop's Internal Camera Unit system. In addition to the tailored design, the backpack features quick-release side compression straps, mesh side pockets, stabilizer straps for adjusting the load, and Daisy Chain loops for attaching accessories.

Across the front of Kashmir is a sternum strap track featuring a whistle, while on the back photographers are given a Jersey laminate EVA-padded panel for quick access to their equipment. Other notable features include a hydration port sealed with Velcro, Hypalon base, front and side pocket drainage weep holes, a reversed YKK zipper, and fourteen GateKeeper loops for those who use F-Stop's GateKeeper Straps. Overall, Kashmir is made from DWR-treated and PU2-coated 210D Ripstop Nylon.

The company is seeking $35,000 USD in funding through Kickstarter, where photographers can order the bag for $139 USD (early-bird pricing). Delivery is estimated for May 2015, with global shipment being offered via warehouses in St. Louis, Hong Kong, the Netherlands, and Tilburg.
