Nice Bag


from Baltimore, USA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Very nice compact bag for travel. I was able to fit D300, 80-200/f4, 17-55mm, and 3 small primes, along with SB-600 and some loose accessories. It was heavy, but everything fit snugly and was transported across half world safely. I used those nice Domke lens wraps for the prime lenses. The bag does not fade and more importantly does not look like a camera bag, which can sometimes be useful.

Tough well built bag


from Phoenix, AZ  -  Professional

I've been using Domke products since 1981. I have always been happy with quality of construction and the way they age. This bag is no exception. For carrying a small-medium size kit it can't be beat. Just enough room for body, three lenses, two flashes and Compact Flash cards. There are two key differences between this bag and the Domke F803, the canvas version of this satchel. 1) It is made of black ballistic nylon, so it's more durable and 2) it's just the littlest bit bigger. Which means it will carry the same amount of gear a little more comfortably (getting my stuff into the F-803 was pretty tight). This is not a carry everything bag. There is probably not enough room to carry cameras AND computers (but it serves as an excellent computer bag/brief case if you don't carry cameras with it). But for use as a day bag, carrying just what you need, it's hard to beat.

Too Small for MacBooks


from NYC/NOLA  -  Professional

Nicely made (as all Domke products), slim, and stylish ... but the bag is too small to fit a small (13" inch) MacBook latop, and I suspect most laptop users of all but the most compact notebooks will have the same problem. The "sleeve" for the laptop is actually a pocket at the front of the bag, which means that a laptop carried in this case would have next to no protection. As a low profile bag for a camera and a couple of lenses only this isn't a bad choice. Just don't expect it to fit a laptop and camera equipment as advertised.
