This bag seems very sturdy as it is made of thick canvas.

The shoulder strap is pretty comfortable "as is", which is without the padded version.

I used Domke bags several years ago when I worked as a news photographer. The design was/is one of the best around for a bag to work out of rather than just to carry equipment. I liked the bag for its "floppiness" and its ability to mold itself to your body when carried. The biggest problem with the bags--and I saw this in virtually every Domke bag being carried by news photographers at the time--was that they wore through due to friction. Carrying it every day meant it rubbed against your side and mine eventually wore a big hole in the back. The only other problem I had with the bag was the lack of weather proofing. Being cotton, when they got wet they stayed wet for a long time.

I switched to a waterproofed nylon bag but it had its own problems. Zippers wore out and the rough nylon rubbed against and wore spots on my jackets.

Bottom line is--there is no perfect camera bag. The best I've found has been the Billingham brand (those are 5-star bags). They are dense-weave cotton with a waterproofing applied. They don't wear as easily and they don't absorb water. They're as easy to work out of as a Domke. They cost a LOT more, however.

I like the Domke bags as a less expensive alternative to the Billinghams. I still like to transport equipment in heavily padded, waterproof nylon bags but, more often than not, I'll carry a Domke or Billingham canvas bag when I'm actually shooting photos.

This bag, which I own and work out of is well made, roomy and easy to carry. Its day-to-day load includes a 20D/grip, 85/1.8, 28-75/2.8, 70-200/2.8IS, 580EX and meter, Lightsphere, poncho, M530V and charger, extra batts, filters, blank cds, cables. The bag has plenty capacity for the weight I'm willing to carry, and my limit is pretty much where it's at right now, 20 lbs. I also carry around my laptop in a sleeve and more often than not either a 681B, or a 3021BPro/486rc2. I could find another camera bag with more room, but the tradeoff is that it will not get carried around, but left behind in the car or office. The F2 has a nice hand strap, and a very nice shoulder strap that does not chafe or rub my neck. The bag fits behind the seat of my car unobtrusively, and is easy to carry.

I've been using this model bag for over 25 years and have yet to find a bag I would considering switching to. Most bags look too much like camera bags, have too much padding (unless you tend to drop your bag a lot (I've never dropped my camera bag that I can remember). The Domke F-2 could be slightly larger, for today's larger cameras, but I prefer it to the F1 "little bit bigger bag"; it's too much bigger).

canvas shapes to your body, zippered pocket in flap is great for passport, money, etc. A great bag that really works.

I've had a Domke bag for over 40 years. These are the things I love about it. It is light weight, durable, flexible, and usable. Not using other bags I don't know how easily it is to change compartments. This one is a snap with velcro fastening and multiple pockets. One on the flap for print material, two in front for filters, microfiber cloth, batteries, memory cards, etc. One on the far side of the bag for incidental items that are exposed to the weather but still come in handy. Two, one on each end. The shoulder strap stays ON ALL THE TIME. You can pick up the bag with a removable canvass strap without opening or unbuckling the bag. Oh yes, and it doesn't look like a camera bag. It is weatherproof and an absolutely delight to use.

I have always used a back-pack style of camera bag, which is good for storage but not as practical in the field. I really like the canvas Domke for its great strap that stays on your shoulder, and the softness of the bag next to your hip.

I carry a Canon 5D with 24-105mm lens attached, as well as a 70-200mm zoom, a 85mm prime, a 1.4x tele, extra batteries, filters, cables, external flash, memory cards- and I have plenty of room.

My daughter uses a Domke F-6 which is smaller, but also has a nice amount of room. If you don't have a lot of equipment, consider the F-6 as an option.

I was disappointed in this bag. First, I will say that I liked how it looks, and I like that you can take out the modular inserts and move them around. Other than that, this is not a practical bag for me. The bag comes with an insert for lenses and flash, but the camera body itself is supposed to sit next to the insert (unless you purchase an additional insert for the camera body). I don't like this because the bag itself is not padded. There isn't a lot of protection for the camera body. Also the top of the bag isn't padded. This isn't a tough bag in that aspect - you have to be careful that nothing bumps you or gets set on top of the bag or that the bag doesn't tip over (which is a concern for people who are loading it in a car). This bag is just for carrying, and you have to be careful when transporting. It's not waterproof, which wasn't too big of a deal to me, but I thought I'd mention it. The clips are heavy-duty and strong, but this actually makes it tough to quickly access your gear. I usually have to set the bag down and use both hands to open it, which is not very convenient. This bag is made of canvas (which picks up tons of pet hair and fuzz if you care about that at all), and doesn't have a lot of bells or whistles. I did like how plain it was, and it doesn't advertise the fact that you're carrying camera gear around like some other bags do. However if you take out the modular insert and the bottom padding of this bag, it doesn't have much structure at all. You know how hiking backpacks have a lot of structure and built-in support? It makes it easier to carry heavy loads without strain. Since this bag doesn't have any structure, it's pretty uncomfortable and heavy to carry when it's loaded with gear. I took this on a photo walk, and the strap (also unpadded) really dug into my shoulder.Read more ›
