    Toss two or three lenses in and you are ready to roll. I usually carry my 17-35, 80-200, and zoom H1 - never know when you need some audio. Not a great bag for holding bodies but thats what shoulders are for. I've got a pelican case that holds most everything I own that I load up and just load the bag at my destination. Lock the pelican case back up and I'm on my way. Perfect for those days of exploring a new city or perhaps your own for the 1000th time. Used to do this with an F2 and this is such a better solution! I still love my F2 for assignments where I can walk in and set it down and still work light and quick, but I can change lenses without even paying attention with the f-5. The slimmer profile is much more comfortable for long days and looks nothing like a camera bag. The waxwear is cool. Must say I like it alot. back pocket for a small notebook or the picked up magazine or pamphlet is a nice touch too. not sure what they were thinking with the front pockets... so far I use one to clip my ipod shuffle and some headphones to when I'm not listening to it... too small and insecure for much else. Still love the bag though. It lives empty in my car ready for any adventure.

    I was looking for a small bag to carry a range finder camera, a couple of small lenses and a few other accessories. I like the Domke concept but I found this item too tall for easy access. The huge flap gets in the way when open, and opening it makes so much noise because of the ample Velcro that candid shooting would be impossible. The small pockets under the flap are small and open (no closures at all), making them pretty impractical. I returned th bag with ease, thanks to B&H's excellent service. And I continue to search for that perfect bag.

    Great bag!!

    Comments about Domke F-5XZ RuggedWear Shoulder Bag:

    Got this bag for my new 70D wanted something low profile but big enough to hold everything I need I generally carry just the camera with lens attached and maybe an additional lens leaving plenty of room for my phone,wallet, extra battery etc. Oh yeah love the worn look and feel of this bag. Great construction this bag will last a lifetime. The strap stays put may have preferred the strap to be the same color.

            Comments about Domke F-5XZ RuggedWear Shoulder Bag:

            I am using mine for an Olympus OM-D. Plenty of room for the camera and a few lenses.

            Most comments are positive about the F-5XZ and I mostly agree. The F-5XZ is made of RuggedWear where the very similar F-5XC is made of classic Domke canvas. There is a feature on one that is not on the other that I missed before ordering. The 5XC employs a zippered compartment under the flap whereas the RuggedWear 5XZ does not. I am not sure why. I kept the bag but would have liked the compartment.

            As mentioned in other reviews, the velcro lid is indeed very loud so I quieted with a product sold by Timbuk 2. It is a velcro silencer strip and works perfectly with this bag. Quiets but still closes securely.

                  This bag is exactly as described and what I needed to carry a few lenses for day trips. Not too small, not too big. Just hangs off my shoulder perfectly with no slippage. It handles two lens (80-400 & 35-75) for my D700 plus a few filters. Very well constructed.

                    Comments about Domke F-5XZ RuggedWear Shoulder Bag:

                    Domke rugged-wear bags are great. It's dead old school having to rub wax into them, love it! On size, this bag can take my 5D2 with a lens mounted and another lens plus a flash but that's a squeeze. I took one of the separators out and my camera and a 35L fit with loads of room, the remaining compartment easily accommodates a flash. The two front pockets are obviously designed for filters and do the job with no issues. The velcro on the flap is noisy but there are ways to work around that if stealth is your thing. I think some people just like to moan.
                    This is the bag for simple shooting. I have taken it out when riding my bike and it's great for trips to the beach etc. I got the new 40 mm pancake lens with my little 270 flash, bags of room in this bag for this rig. I'm in light mode!

                    I originally got the F-5XB but it was way too small. The F-5XZ does the job with a bit of room to spare.

                      Comments about Domke F-5XZ RuggedWear Shoulder Bag:

                      This is my go to everyday bag. I bring my camera along with me everywhere I go. This is the bag I keep packed to grab at a moments notice. I keep my second camera, a Nikon D300s, with 35mm DX lens attached along with my 80-200, 50mm prime, SB-600 and SB-400 flashes. It is a tight fit with both flashes but with only one it is still roomy.

                      Waxed canvas is excellent in the rain and easily cleaned from setting the bag down in any environment.

                      Velcro closure is loud when opened, but planning takes care of any distraction this might cause. Flap is easily rolled out of the way and the zipper closure keeps everything secure. There are times that I will keep my 80-200 lens attached and just keep the flap over my camera and it becomes very accessible without the velcro attached.

Everything I need for walking tours of London, Paris, Seville, Dresden, Prague,Stuttgart or wherever. Removed the Domke tag--too obvious-- and added a small velcro strip to keep outside back pocket closed.

                        I am a photography major and need to take my camera essentially everywhere I go. It gives me easy of access to my camera (Canon 50D ) and provides enough space to carry anything else I need for a day of class or shooting, The skinny pouch on the backside of the bag is perfect for a note book or an IPad (I usually carry my iPad there), the ouch itself could be a little wider but I can't complain. This bag is small but utilitarian and isn't cumbersome to those always on the go.

                                The bag is sufficient in size to carry a telephoto zoom (70-200 range) alongside another lens, plus a flash and small incidentals. In a pinch, you can get the camera body under the flap (not too comfortably with a D700) in order to get out of sudden rainstorms.

                                I carry one D700, a telephoto zoom, ultra wide zoom, and a standard prime along with a flash on day trips. I don't believe in stowing cameras in bags, and chose this one to carry a light load while my camera hangs off the opposite shoulder. For that, this bag works perfect.

                                The only downfall is I would like to have seen the mfr. throw in a few small padding squares so that I could make a compartment for filters underneath the ultrawide zoom/ prime side of the bag. No big deal, cardboard works well.

                                This bag holds my 60D with 18-135 lens mounted, 50mm prime, and a flash perfectly. There's not much room for anything else, but that keeps the bag nice and compact so it's great for using as a daily walk around bag. The strap is quite comfortable and since it's so light weight I can carry it all day no problem. Wax wear finish is very nice, I was skeptical of it at first but really like it.

                                Like other reviewers, I just wish the front inside pockets were a little more useful and the velcro wasn't as loud. I attached a separate piece of velcro to the flap side to halfway cover the strip, so it's a lot more quiet now.

                                  This is the shoulder bag that doesn't kill shoulder!

                                  Perfect size for 1 camera with 2-3 lenses (depending on the sizes of your lenses) and some accesories. I use it for daily walk around, and as lens exchange bag at events.

                                  I worried reading many reviews about how loud the velcro gives, but I actually feel save walking around with it, knowing that thief in metro train would need to pass that velcro sound to get into my gear.

                                  I fall in love with the rugged wear finish :)

                                  This bag is not big enough for my Canon 50D and one "L" lens. I was disappointed, but I should have tried it out before buying it. A bigger bag, with a few more secured pockets would be the best - I'll keep looking.

                                  Not only is this bag exactly what I needed, but B&H helped me determine which bag to get. [...]The style of this bag is great, the weather-proofing seems top notch, and I can recommend it for anyone looking to carry a body and two lenses (or swap a lens for the 580EX flash) without lugging too much around.

                                    Toss two or three lenses in and you are ready to roll. I usually carry my 17-35, 80-200, and zoom H1 - never know when you need some audio. Not a great bag for holding bodies but thats what shoulders are for. I've got a pelican case that holds most everything I own that I load up and just load the bag at my destination. Lock the pelican case back up and I'm on my way. Perfect for those days of exploring a new city or perhaps your own for the 1000th time. Used to do this with an F2 and this is such a better solution! I still love my F2 for assignments where I can walk in and set it down and still work light and quick, but I can change lenses without even paying attention with the f-5. The slimmer profile is much more comfortable for long days and looks nothing like a camera bag. The waxwear is cool. Must say I like it alot. back pocket for a small notebook or the picked up magazine or pamphlet is a nice touch too. not sure what they were thinking with the front pockets... so far I use one to clip my ipod shuffle and some headphones to when I'm not listening to it... too small and insecure for much else. Still love the bag though. It lives empty in my car ready for any adventure.
