Excerpt: I used this bag for two years in Egypt and Ethiopia. The primary attributes were that it's tough, low-profile, and the 'sand' color helped make it appear less threatening for a variety of reasons. I did cut the center clasp off to be able to pop the top open faster to change lens.
Excerpt: I like this bag because it provides excellent dry weather protection without looking like a camera bag - I don't think it will provide much protection from rain for very long. It is very inconspicuous. The canvas is very thick as is the padded removable inserts.
Excerpt: This bag holds an amazing amount of gear. Right now a Canon 5D with a 24-105 F4 zoom attached, a 70-200 F4 zoom, three 580 flashes, battery grip, camera-flip for tripod, all cables, CF cards, manuals, flashlights, notecards & pens,other odds and ends.
Excerpt: This is the second Domke bag I have owned--among a half dozen other brands. My first Domke, a larger bag, I have given to my son: these bags only get better with age. No other bag comes close to the utility and smart design of Domke.
Summary: The first thing you'll notice when you put on this bag is that you feel like you're going on Safari with David Attenborough. Domke have been a player in the camera bag market right from the start and it shows in their traditional look and feel.
Pros: great feel!, great look!, great strap, Perfect size, pretty inconspicuous
Cons: metal catches are awkward to open, not exactly indestructably made
