Nice looking but poor design

  • Excerpt: Simple looking well constructed bag. A good size for a DSLR and a couple of lenses. I like a lot about this bag, it's plain looks don't shout 'camera bag' and it's a great size to carry around when you want a camera on hand.
  • Pros: Comfortable Strap, Compact, Durable, Lightweight
  • Cons: Not Enough Pocket Room

Perfect size bag but unperfect design

  • Excerpt: This is a perfect size bag for travel and to carry a 70-200mm f2.8.Nevertheless, the two front pocket are totaly helpless due to their size.I've returned the J-5XC Bag to B&H in exchange to the F-5XZ hoping that the two front pocket would be deeper since their is no bottom zipper on the J-5XZ.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable
  • Cons: Poor Design

Too Boxy, Wish Were Smaller

Hollis, B&H Photo
16 February 2011

  • Pros: Discrete Aesthetics, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Uncomfortable Fit

Perfect

  • Excerpt: The bag does everything just right for my needs. Great for my setup: Holds Canon 60D with 6" lens, a second 6" lens, and up to 9" video mic. The large flap with strong velcro holds my monopod and manfrotto fluidhead secure enough to hike with.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Lightweight, Strong Construction, Well Padded

Great Bag for Micro Four Thirds

9 August 2010
  • Excerpt: I needed a bag to house a Panasonic Micro Four Thirds kit. The bag is great in combination with the insides used from the Domke ballistic F6 (little bit smaller bag). I fit the GF-1 with 14-45, 7-14, and 45-200 or the Metz 48-AF 1 in place of one of the lenses.
  • Pros: Compact Design, Does not shout camera bag, Good for Travel, Highly Compatible, Improves Performance, Professional Quality
  • Cons: Need special inserts

(Almost) Perfect Bag

21 November 2009
  • Excerpt: I've had a difficult time picking the right bag. It needed to be big enough, but not too big; durable and padded, but not bulky... etc. The Domke J-5XC is fantastic in this regard.
  • Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Use, Highly Compatible, Professional Quality
