Product Description

Color: Brown

Like your favorite pair of jeans, Domke bags get better with age and with the new Domke Ruggedwear collection you don’t have to wait. The fabric produces a unique distressed and weathered look right from the start. The Ruggedwear classic bags feature high-quality, weather-tough, durable cotton canvas that is treated with special non-solvent waxes to afford the fabric a lifelong resistance to inclement weather. The special formula allows the fabric to breathe while the waxes produce a unique, timeless, weathered, distressed patina finish. By using the included refinishing oil, bags can be restored to its original finish quickly and easily. Use this versatile carrying case as a camera bag or remove the included Gripper Shoulder strap and thread your belt (or ours, sold separately) through the tunnel for an instant waist pack. This is Ideal For: 1 SLR or rangefinder camera, 1 or 2 lenses, filters, film and accessories. Five compartments and pockets give plenty of space for all of your gear. A padded main compartment is lined with hook and loop material and has two removable padded divider walls allowing a custom fit. Exterior Dimensions: 10"W x 4.5"D x 7.25"H. Interior Dimensions: 9.5"W x 4"D x 6"H.

Let me just say, this bag is wonderful.

The materials are top notch, all around. The bag and strap are made of very thick, rugged canvas. The sliders and latches are all made of metal; the strap adjustment loops and zipper strips are plastic, but they seem to be very large and very tough.

The front and rear panels, the bottom, and the dividers are well padded. The small side panels are not padded, so do be aware of that. The bottom is rigid, to keep its general structure and allow it to stand on its own. The shoulder strap has a grippy material that keeps it firmly in place.

The velcro is substantial and it makes things very secure. I feel safe enough leaving the bag partially unzipped and relying on the velcro alone for quicker access. Yes, it's loud, but I'm OK with that.

I can't honestly find a single complaint, other than that it's perhaps a bit pricey. It does exactly what it says, and it just oozes quality.

I was looking for a bag specifically for traveling light with a small amount of Micro 4/3 gear, and after extensive research I was torn between this and the slightly taller (but lower volume) F-5XA. I ultimately settled on this model, and here's what I can cram in here if I'm really trying (I don't have quite this much in there for the video):

- E-P2 body with one of the lenses below mounted
- Olympus 17mm f/2.8
- Olympus 14-42mm
- Panasonic 45-200mm
- Panasonic 20mm f/1.

Color: Black
But for 2.5 little quibbles, I'd have given this bag 5 stars.

Quibble # 1 is the velcro closure on the main flap. It's makes the bag far too noisy to open. I like to shoot with Leica Ms for their quiet shutters and overall "stealth". The velcro negates those advantages. A simple fix...I just removed about 90% of the velcro, leaving only enough to keep the flap closed.

Quibble #2 is with the front pockets. There are 4 of them and 3 of them are too small for anything but a pen. The largest will barely hold a Sekonic 308b exposure meter. I really wish that Domke had designed the bag with just two front pockets, but then they couldn't advertise it as having 7 compartments. I guess that the stitching between the pockets can be removed if you have the patience and a steady hand.

Quibble #2.5 is the Domke label on the front flap. I don't want to advertise to the world that I'm carrying $4,000 worth of gear in a bag that, otherwise, is almost invisible. The label is a PITA to remove. I had to use a razor knife to verrrrry carefully cut it away. This is quibble 2.5, only because, if you select the "Official White House Photographer" (or something like that) version, you may actually enjoy advertising the contents of your bag.

Now for the good stuff....

The bag is made of high quality, durable canvas. After a little use, it softens and kind of molds itself to your side. In fact, the more you use it, the better it gets. You could probably remove the padded dividers and toss the shell in with the laundry if you wanted to.

The strap is fantastic. It's a Domke "Gripper" strap. Just like the ones I use on all of my cameras.

Review is based on comparing other bags I have owned.

Other packs I own or have owned that I am able to remember.
CamelBack (military spec issue) Heavy Black Nylon utility (dragged it around Iraq tossed it in humvee/trucks. Share fair of dust and grime. Total 10 year use. Looks as good as new.
Jack Wolfskin (German brand) fast/quick pack used for around town/school/travel use. 9 years dirty but still perfect (used most)
Vaude x-large internal frame pack camping. Only used for trail camping and traveling across europe. Plastic buckle broke.
Mammut small semi frame pack hiking. Good day pack. very light.
Tatonka camera bag (expired). SLR camera bag. only room for camera and lens attached. Sold it.
Tamrac camera bag good cheap bag.
US Army rucksack (expired) never used it...only my black CamelBack (I was in special team)
US Army duffel still using it for stuffing my sleeping bag, clothes etc for car camping.
Timbuk2 messenger/computer use for work.
Krumpler messenger/computer (expired)...excellent bags, but my college days are over.
Pentax SLR camera bag similar to F5XB but not canvas w/o flap. (expired) gave it to my brother with camera way back in the day.

Domke F5XB
Basic bag that is made of tough canvas and components.
YKK zippers will probably never fail on this bag.
Gripper Strap is best standard strap ever. I can't think of any other strap bag out there.
Smaller simple design. Will fit into any back pack if needed.
Belt loop option.

Possible Cons and easy solutions:
Outside pocket (under velcro flap) does not have zipper. As a test, I stuck several credit cards in it closed the flap and shook and tossed the bag around without any cards falling out.
