    I've included quite a few measurements in this review, sinceI carefully considered these factors before ordering thebag. My goal: A small, discreet, conveniently designed,well-made bag that would carry my camera gear along with afew small personal items. Mission accomplished with thisbag! If you have similar equipment, you'll probably lovethis bag.I ordered the optional one-compartment 3 x 6 x 8 insert,and my Nikon D80 SLR with lens attached rides on its back inthe insert. The zoom lens is rather large -- 4 from camerabody to filter when fully retracted.The optional insert made a big difference in my enjoyment ofthe bag. It's easier to slip the camera in and out, and thecamera receives extra protection without the bag becomingtoo bulky. Also, for some reason, the bag now stands up onits own. Before, it tended to need to be propped up againstsomething. I stash a flash in the 3 x 4 x 8 insert that came with thebag, but it would be fine for a couple of lenses if youdon't mind stacking items. The flash, which is 3-1/2 x 2 x6-1/2 inches, also fits in one of the front pockets butjust barely. I personally wouldn't carry the flash in thefront pocket because I prefer the more spacious feel, easeof access and extra protection of the insert, but it'sdoable. The two inserts fit well within the bag, but perhaps notperfectly. Together, they might be about 1/2 too long.Perhaps it's by design, but they fold just a little. It'snot bothersome. They have kind of molded themselves to theshape of the equipment. Domkes inserts are clever, and Iappreciate the way you can remove them with contents intactand can remove the individual foam paddings from whateversides you want.The bag's pockets have plenty of room to carry small itemssuch as filters, a wallet, a couple of manuals or magazines,etc. There are hooks on each side -- handy for carrying anextra pouch for more gear or even lunch. The bag has aplastic bar that runs the length of the top flap; I supposeit helps keep everything in place. One of the main reasons I chose this particular bag is thatit's very discreet. It doesn't look like a camera bag atall, and the Domke logo is hidden under the main flap.The construction quality and materials appear to be superb.I've owned another canvas Domke bag for about 25 years. Iteven went through several years of professional use, and itstill looks and functions great. It doesn't appear thatDomke has scrimped on quality over the years.

    Problems Encountered: As reviews elsewhere mention, the main hook is somewhatdifficult to open and close. Domke says this is to make itmore pilfer-proof, and it probably does. After I used thebag for a few weeks, either I got used to it or it loosenedup a bit. Still, I'd prefer an easier hook and haveconsidered replacing it.

    Nice bag but a little too small for DSLR

    I can carry my Rebel DSLR body, a flash and two lenses but it's a tight fit. Partition not designed for carrying my camera with lens attached.

      Comments about F-803 Camera Satchel Shoulder Bag (Black):

      Fantastic bag. Using with Sony A7 outfit and three lenses. Tried other bags, but most of those designed specifically for mirrorless sacrificed functionality for compact size. I found trying to squeeze everything in a small bag very restrictive. This bag offers more depth than many small bags, but because of its slim profile, its feels like you're carrying a smaller bag. In fact, I bought a domke f10 at the same time, which is also great, but even though it's a smaller bag, it doesn't fit as close to the body, so in some ways it feels more cumbersome to me. I still have the f10, but I use the 803 almost exclusively. Plenty of room for accessories. Has the handle on top, which makes it easy to grab. And best of all, you can mount a long lens/lens with a hood and you don't have to remove it in order to put your camera back in the bag. That's not possible with a bag that's only 6" high. And of course, it doesn't look like a camera bag, which is also great. Cons? I'd like it if it had an interchangeable strap. I added a timbuk 2 chest strap to keep it from sliding around when riding my bike; it would have been nice if that was included. I did not buy the three compartment insert, but instead used the single insert for one lens,and positioned it so I could carry the camera with one lens pointed down in a larger area, and put my third lens in the remaining space on the far side of the insert. Although there's no padding except on the bottom, the canvas is thick, and I feel like short of dropping the bag from a significant height, my gear is adequately protected. And if there was more padding, the slim profile would not be possible. The outside front pockets don't hold much, but they're good for a pen, voice recorder, etc. The large front pockets are great for batters, filters, etc. Great, simple design. Highly recommended.

        I have put my D300s with Sigma 18 35 f1.8 in this bag, it's light and easy to carry.
        I also have put my Panasonic GX7 with kit lens , metabones adaptor and charger, this is a light kit in a light bag that wins all round.

          Comments about F-803 Camera Satchel Shoulder Bag (Sand):

          This is the best bag I've found for my XPro1 and a few lenses. I already had a black one and always wanted the sand colour. However I notice Domke have made a couple of design changes compared to my old example.

          (1) The main strap appears to be slightly lighter weight yarn in the weave that may cut into shoulder a little more if you're carrying a bit of weight in the bag. Probably not an issue for me.

          (2) The buckle where the main strap is attached to the strap sown around the bag has been changed to a single loop from the previous double loop. The double loop one was a bit wider which meant the angle the bag was at on your shoulder/back had a little more wriggle room to sit snuggly against you. The new arrangement results in more stress being placed on the stitching where the strap is sown on. My new bag is already showing signs of the stitching being pulled but it remains to be seen if this will worsen over time. Probably easily repaired if it does but would have preferred Domke used the double loop buckle.

          Ok I'm being picky, this is still a great bag.

          from New York, NY

          Comments about F-803 Camera Satchel Shoulder Bag (Black):

          This bag is especially good due to its low profile shape. It can be worn comfortably over the shoulder, and remains bulk-free. I use it to carry 3-4 compact, rangefinder/mirrorless cameras (with lenses). The pocket on the back is also suited for carrying a small book or iPad/tablet. Overall, it feels durable and well-constructed.

            This is one of the best satchel type camera bags you can buy. It is small enough to go anywhere and yet it is suitable for carrying a range of camera gear. I bought my first F-803 back in 15-years ago and more recently I have bought another two; one is for my wife's video kit, the other is for my Hasselblad kit. The bag can also be use as a laptop bag or for a small SLR kit. Highly useful and highly recommended.

            I have a mirrorless camera and I was looking for a smaller bag. I have arthritis and can no longer carry the bigger, heavier bags. I like to travel and it carries everything I need without all the weight. I also like how it looks. You can't really tell it is a camera bag and I feel safer and not as worried about someone stealing it.

            I've been shooting since the early 70's, have owned lots of bags but keep coming back to Domkes. This bag was purchased to carry my Fuji XE-1, X100s, and Xf lenses 55-22 , 35 and 14mm. A lot more comfortable to carry and inconspicuous than my Billingham Hadley Small. I don't want to carry any more than this will hold. It molds to my hip and is easy to work out of, most bags are just too bulky.

                  A great little satchel that won't hit every seat as you make your way down the airline aisle. People who obsess over padded protection won't like these canvas bags but I've never had a problem.

                  In my configuration, I put a Nikon D7000 with short zoom, speedlite SB-800, 2 primes stacked in the movable compartment, filters in the front bag pockets and an iPad in the back pocket. The D7000/lens sits sort of cocked diagonal in the open space and I have the padded divider moved next to it and the flash is a tight fit next to that. The SB-800 will fit in one of the outside pockets but I didn't want the bag to bulge any wider than necessary. As someone else said, not sure why some colors cost more than others. Ask the Domke Marketing dept.

                  Looking for the Domke website I found that it is within the Tiffen site. It's a confusing website if you're looking for easy listing and views of the different bags. You'll get better pictures, views and descriptions on the B&H site.

                    Comments about F-803 Camera Satchel Shoulder Bag (Sand):

                    This is my first Domke bag but certainly not my last. It's a tiny bit smaller than I thought it was going to be but this not a problem as its neat size makes it look smart and snazzy, while remaining very functional. I'm 6'3" and I find the strap is long enough. An extra couple of inches would have been nice for room to move but not essential. The finish is very pleasing to the touch and it feels very durable. I'm actually using it more as a man-bag than a gear bag at the moment so the lense padding that came with tbe bag makes a great water bottle/thermos comparment. The front pockets are nice and deep but the ones on the flap are a litte tight. Good for cards, keys and a cell phone though.A couple of little pouches inside the main pouch would have been good for pens and bits and pieces but you can always add the removable pouches that are sold separately. The most important thing is that my wife likes it. She's a very stylish lady and didn't want me carrying a camera bag around for day to day business but she thinks it looks very cool and smart. Phew. Thanks Domke!All in all a great little all purpose bag that has already earnt some nice compliments from friends. I'll definitely get a Domke again, only next time I'll go a bit bigger so I can fit my laptop in as well.

                      Perfect size for small camera (ie. Sony DX-7 or rangefinder), w/2-3 lenses and a flash. Tough, waterproof canvas, discrete. Zip pocket for filters/extra chips, etc. Two outer velcroed pockets, covered by flap, can hold notebook, glasses, phone. OK, common complaint, the front buckle is clumsy. And no padding on bottom. But it comes w/Domke padded insert and other Domke touches, like the gripper strap going all the way around the bag and compatible w/Domke line of inserts.

                        I bought this to carry lenses on photo shoots instead of carrying big backpack of equipment. Best for when you are carrying your camera on a shoot and need quick access to extra lenses.

                            I've always been a fan of Domke products, in particular the F-802 bag, which functions just as well as an everyday messenger bag as well as one that can easily carry a full DSLR setup and fairly big lenses. But after adding a Fuji XE1 mirrorless to my setup, I needed a smaller bag for the occasions when I did not need to haul all the glass along - and the F-803 fits perfectly. All of the benefits of the F-802 bag which I know and love, in a smaller, lighter size. It accomodates the camera, a number of lenses (depending on the size, but mirrorless have smaller lenses compared to the big L glass) and the back pocket will accept a full-sized iPad.

                            I can carry my Rebel DSLR body, a flash and two lenses but it's a tight fit. Partition not designed for carrying my camera with lens attached.

                                This bag is great for carrying around a small camera kit without it looking like a camera bag. I usually use it for a small MFT kit and a Ricoh GRD IV or a film camera. It has big pockets for film, batteries, etc.

                                One thing that I don't like it the hook/clip on the front because I often need two hands to open or close it properly.

                                I am always on the lookout for a good "street" bag that will hold a couple of Leica M's and some lenses. This bag is great in many respects. It will easily hold 3 M bodies with lenses. I haven't tried it yet but I'm sure I could get a few more lenses in as well. The bag is well made and looks very sharp without being flashy and grabbing attention. I plan to use this bag for many years and suspect I will like it even more after it's broken in. Having said that, I gave it 4 stars for a couple of reasons. The clip that holds the flap is not super quick to undue. It's secure which is it's purpose but I think the clip could probably be improved for ease of use without compromising security. It also comes with minimal dividers. Sure you can buy more but I've never purchased a bag that was this sparse on dividers and configuration options. My last criticism is that I wish there were more in the way of pockets and places to keep things (i.e. non-camera items, like keys, wallet, phone, cards, etc.) organized. Anyway, these are minor issues. As I said it's a great bag and I am glad I got it. It's just that my search for the perfect bag hasn't ended.

                                  After going back and forth amongst Think Tank Retrospectives, Crumpler Million Dollar Homes, as well as Lowepros and Tamracs, finally settled on the Domke F-803. The main reason--it's size! I have a micro 4/3rd kit and most bags are just too fat/thick for my taste. This is one of the thinnest (slim profile) bags you will find. Just finished carrying my gear around San Francisco for a week and it worked out great. Here's what I fit: Panasonic GX-1, Panasonic 14mm f2.5, Panasonic 25mm f1.4, and Panasonic 45-175mm, a 3 filter filter-pouch, spare battery, spare sd cards, lenspen, cleaning cloths, and still had room for travel brochures and small souvenirs that I bought throughout the day. It's a very well-thought out design. I do wish they had built in some sort of straps to allow attachment of a tripod bag to the bottom. On another note, the Sirui T-005 tripods actually fit in these bags (with everything else if you take out the insert--but things get a little tight).Overall an excellent bag. My first Domke purchase, and very pleased with their product. Very discreet also for those going for that basic messenger bag look.

                                  I bought it because my billingham hadley pro insert was in a bad shape and when I saw the price for replacement I prefered buy another bag.

                                  What I fit in :
                                  -leica mp with one lens in the insert
                                  -konica hexar AF on one side
                                  -1 or 2 other leica lens on the other side
                                  -notebook and lenspen in the front pocket
                                  -films in the other front pocket

                                  or

                                  -leica MP with one lens in the insert
                                  -nikon d7k with lens on the other side.
                                  -notebook and lenspen in the front pocket
                                  -films in the other front pocket

                                  The bag doesn't look like a camera bag.
                                  It is well built and nice.

                                  The only issue is that the top of the bag is a little bit too rough for my back when I carry it like a messenger bag.

                                  Comments about F-803 Camera Satchel Shoulder Bag (Olive Drab):

                                  The most I like about this bag is that it is multifunction. To be honest, although the build quality and look are above average, it simply is a messenger bag and as such can be used to carry documents, laptop, etc. However, with the insert, it makes a perfect camera bag for small systems (Olympus PEN in my case). It is smaller than it looks, which is perfect for me, but certainly not for someone with a big camera. Protection is good, but not extreme (which may be a con, not a pro, but it saves space and weight). The strap is wide, grippy and comfortable. The clip to open anc close is certainly secure, but there is no quick access option (no velcro either, which I like but ages poorly, so it's not necessarily a bad thing). The two tiny pockets on the flap are to be used seldom, unless you want to scratch your hand eveytime you get into those tight spaces. It is nice looking, but certainly not a design statement (which is good not to draw attention, but rather informal, like a student bag). Have used it for weeks and so durability is yet to be determined; however, keep in mind that it is water-repellant at best, it will not protect your gear under anything but a light drizzle...
