        Comments about F-808 Messenger Bag (Sand):

        It appears to be well-made. However, as a subway commuter, I need a bag that can conform to my lap, or more easily balance. In all, though, it is as advertised.

        Lastly, it is a bit overlarge for me. Again, this is no fault of the manufacturer or purveyor.

        Comments about F-808 Messenger Bag (Black):

        Jim Domke may not be designing the current crop of bags that bear his name, but I'm sure he'd be proud of the F-808. The shape is slightly deceiving, because it doesn't look all that big. But it's capable of schlepping a computer (well-padded), a camera or two, and all the pens and paper a person could want to have along. The Domke backpack strap is a good addition that will enable you to carry a heavy load all day without the sagging feeling you get with a single shoulder strap.

          Purchased this bag on sale at a considerable savings, which was great; what was not so great is the fact that it does not fit my laptop well. The ad stated that it fit 'most 15" laptops' but did not specify which. My Toshiba 15" is about an inch too long to fit correctly. In my opinion, 14" ones would be more appropriate. Measure carefully before ordering; otherwise a very nice, well-made bag.

          I bought this bag to replace my briefcase. It is the perfect size for all my electronic gear (lMacbook, iPad, iPhone, iPod & cords) plus extra room for files & books. Of course it doesn't hurt that it matches my camera gear bags too. :P

          It is a great bag minus the padding. However, one can always add it to this bag. There is plenty of room for my 13' mac pro and some accessories. It also has a useful front pocket. Since I own other domke bags, I know their quality.

              Bag is excellent quality that you would expect from Domke. It is larger that it appears in the pictures so if you are looking for a compact bag, this might not be the one you want. Fast shipping from B&H Photo.

                Comments about F-808 Messenger Bag (Olive):

                love the color and design. just enough pockets but not so many you forget where you put things. like the clip that secures the top flap and the fact that it has a short handle as well a long strap. I also like the grippy nature of the back of the strap so I don't feel it's going to slide off. I especially like the way it stands up on its own--doesn't fall over or have to be propped like my old bag. one down side is that it's a tiny bit small for my 15 inch MACbook Pro. It works but sticks out a bit more at the top than I'd like.

                  I am using this bag for legal briefs and my Sony Vaio computer. I really like the looks and the quality of the bag. I saw the same thing "on clearence" at Helix Camera in Chicago. Your price was below that price.!!! My bag was sent right away and I love it. Thanks Patrick McDonough of ChicagoClout.

                      It's my third Domke bag and I couldn't be more satisfied with it. A little bit of history: I started with F-6 to haul my Oly E-PL1 with 4 lenses. I was so impressed with the Domke quality and design! I've never used any bag that was more convinient. When I needed a bag for tripod, I had no doubts buying Domke F-432. Now to haul 13" MacBook Air I even didn't hesitate ordering F-808. Black bag was not available in stock but it was worth waiting. I was not disappointed. F-808 is actually a bit bigger than it looked on the pictures but it fits perfectly to my purposes. A well-cushioned insert holds MacBook Air. There is enough room to through in couple of books, too. Front zipped pocket is a good place for my glasses, pens, wallet, etc. There is a zipped pocket in the flap too, I use it for phone and keys. The bag feels very comfortable on the shoulder and looks great! I couldn't be more happy with F-808.

                        This matches a Domke camera bag I have and I knew the Domke quality (actually have 5 Domke bags). This one is better than described and can be unhooked and expanded when needed. The insert fits my computer perfectly and when I go in the field with camera and laptop (to tether) it is as well protected as my other gear. I do use this back everyday with or without the computer. Without the insert, the bag wraps easily around your body and can just about carry anything.

                        I expect this bag to last for years as all the other are aging gracefully. I would highly recommend the F-808 as well as many other Domke bags. BTW B&H is a delight to work with.

                          After straying to other bags for the last 8 years or so, I returned to Domke to find a bag for my D700 and a few lenses, flash etc. I picked up the F-4AF--GREAT BAG, and once I had it I started looking at my MacBook and longing for an equally appealing package to haul it around in. This bag is it. The vertical orientation makes the load feel lighter, and I pull the mac out with one hand not worrying about the squeeze to the middle of the laptop. Love the back pocket--Domke, please make a nice padded slipcase for the iPad and I'll sneak it into the back pocket on the F-808. Will fit perfect. I also love the way the front organizer opens on the F-808--very easy to see all your little cords and whatnot. I put the power supply in the flap pocket--it used to fall down to the bottom of my horizontal computer case and I'd be digging it out every day. I've used this F-808 only one day so far, but I can tell I'm going to LOVE it. It has the usual Domke ease and style and looks so unassuming doing it all.

                            I use this bag to carry my 13" MacBook and my audio gear. There is plenty of room to fit everything nicely.

                              Comments about F-808 Messenger Bag (Sand):

                              I was looking for a murse (man purse) to store my phone, PDA, keys, creative notebooks, etc. I also wanted something that was comfortable over my shoulder and sat around my hip/back. I have a large Domke camera bag and it does that well.

                              This bag is a little larger than I hoped, but that size comes in handy. There is a removeable laptop insert that is really handy for adding in your computer. But, it comes out easily and the bag then conforms more to your body. It is great for holding papers and notebooks, as well as small electronics. It has card and pen holders as well. The non-slip strap is nice too, although I wouldn't mind if it was 1/2" wider.

                              Overall a great messsenger bag that you can load down if you need to, but sits light and comfortable if you want--like I did.
