Dependable and Practical

  • Excerpt: My go-to bag when on the run and I need to carry a variety of lenses, bodies and flashes. You can stuff a lot in it and they hold up to wear and tear very well for the price. My only complaint is over the last decade, Domke seems to be cutting corners by scrimping on the size. I have an F-2 bag that is one of the original ones from years back and it was a lot roomier, now you can barely squeeze a flash in the front pocket.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Strong Construction

After two years of use...

  • Excerpt: I have to say that after two years of use, I'm slightly disappointed with the Ruggedwear line. It's a great bag (don't get me wrong) but compared to the original fabric, the Ruggedwear wax material is much thinner, and is already developing decently sized holes in the bottom corners. That's after only two years of use... the newspaper I work at has an original F-2 in black that is easily 10+ years old, and it's in about the same shape as mine.
  • Pros: Easily Loaded Equipment, Lightweight, Simple, Strong Construction, Water-resistant

Nice bag but little padding

  • Excerpt: Beautiful looking bag, but it is basically a rugged canvas bag with a little slightly padded insert inside for a camera and 2-3 lenses. The padding is not stiff to protect from weight, and really is more like some cotton sown into some synthetic. Everything but the protection is offered was great. But the protection was disappoint at best.
  • Pros: Easily Loaded Equipment
  • Cons: Poorly Padded

  • Excerpt: i've been using a small over the shoulder domke camera bag for my mamiya 7II for 6 years and loved it. i have never before purchased a camera backpack because i don't like the ripstop nylon+other synthetic material used on most. So when i saw this in the store the other day i thought it was a dream come true. it looks a lot like a military surplus backpack but has enough pockets and compartments for batteries, film, my polaroid, compact 35 mm,+mamiya.
  • Pros: Adjustable Harness, Great looking, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Not enough inserts, Not enough padding, Not waterproof, Scratchy straps, Too Small

Nice bag, but...

  • Excerpt: This is a very well-made bag that was recommended to me by the B&H sales staff. They asked me what I planned to carry in it: 5D body, XSi body, 70-200 2.8, 24-70 2.8, 16-35 2.8, a 580 flash and a bunch of accessories. The 70-200 and the 24-70 would not have fit with their hoods on, and the main closures are of the old-fashioned metal type and not as quick or easy to operate as contemporary plastic latches.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Difficult to Close, It won't fit my gear

Great Bag; One Major Flaw!!!

  • Excerpt: I absolutely love this bag! That said, it failed me after only five months. Like the other complaints listed above, my strap let go where it meets the base as well. The bag and all of my gear slammed to the ground. I then noticed that the second strap wasn't far behind. My dilema, do I send it back to Domke or pay to have it repaired locally. I chose the latter and am very happy with the results. Had this not happened, I would have awarded this product (5) stars.
  • Pros: Adjustable Harness, Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Roomy
