Great bag!

the bag easily fits a 40d witha large zoom lens the lens seprators can hold a EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS USM lens snugly. the bag can just just hold more gear then you can imagine a bag this size holding. the flaps are awkward for completely covering the side pockets. the bag is very water resistant i rode my bike in the rain with this back water spraying all over the bag from the back tire and all the camera gear was perfectly dry

Domke bags are the best, period.


from Chicago  -  Pro Photographer

Before i went digital, back in the day, i used a domke bag for both my 4 x 5 Linhof and another for my 35mm. The bags i've been using recently have finely driven me crazy. Yes, they are fancy with space-age materials but in the long run they are travel bags, not working photographers bags. I finally returned to the simplicity of the working mans bag, the domke. It takes a beating, it protect my gear and keeps it ready to use. It doesn't look too flashy and actually that is great for the places i go. If you are serious about shooting efficiently and hassle-free, it's domke or nothing.


Less is More!


from Plainfield, NH  -  Photo Enthusiast

I am amazed at how much gear I can carry in this bag. the layout and number of pockets suit me perfectly. I also have the bigger Domke F2, but this one usually is plenty. Be aware there is no padding, so if you slam your bag around this might not be the one for you. On the other hand, less padding means more room in a smaller bag, and that's the reason I bought it. The quality/ruggedness is very impressive. I've had mine for years, but shows no sign of wearing out. I'm sure I'll be using it for a long time to come.


Have F-2 downsized to F-3x

I Love this bag!


from Conyngham, PA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Great fit to your form - not one of those boxy bags that gets in the way. Fits a lot of gear for it's size.

It's a Domke and Domke's rock!


from Portland, ME  -  Pro Photographer

I've been using Domke bags since the early 80's. Nothing beats them as long as you stick with the canvas versions. This bag is the perfect size for my D700 and Fuji X100 with a couple of lenses. Domke bags excel at keeping your gear easily available while your shooting. Designed by a pro for pros. On a side note, I have an original Domke F2 that I've used at least a few times a week for 29 years. And it's still going strong.


The best!


from North Carolina  -  Pro Photographer

My first Domke bag wore out after 30 years and I really wanted the exact same bag. This was as close as it came and it is even better (though I didn't want to admit it) than the first one. Easy to access, padded well, lightweight, and completely unassuming, all the things I love. I don't want to go into a crowd looking like I am carrying expensive equipment, so this bag is perfect becuase it is good looking but not so much like a fancy camera bag. Domke did it again but even better! And it seems this one might last even longer it is built so well!


very good bag


from galatia illinois  -  Photo Enthusiast

it does hold more than you might think but still i wish that i had chosen the nest size larger


NICE bag!


from NJ USA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

First off - THANK YOU Adorama! you guys are FAST! I just got this bag and I did think it would be a bit bigger, but it's perfect for my Panasonic GF1 and two lens + a few other odds and ends... It doesn't look too much like a camera bag either, which I LOVE and it's very casual and "outdoorsy" - another + for me! I did think it was a bit pricey , but well worth it for the construction and functions!

Great bag!


from Galatia Illinois  -  Photo Enthusiast

This is a great day bag. This bag is built for speed; no armor on the sides or the top. It is a good looking bag but if you don,t like good looking, put some duct tape on it and be a pro.

Great for urban walks and travel.


from Mexico City, Mexico  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I use it for street photography in Mexico City. The bag is not flashy and provides easy access to my D200 and two other lenses with space to spare for my BlackBerry, iPod Touch, Canon G9, Rocket Blower, and an SB600 speed flash.

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
KEN S  I love my domke bag. Getting a bit tight canon 60D 70-300is connected and 18-135mm in one inside side pocket. The 60D with 18-135mm fits fine with the 70-300mm in side pocket though.
