The brown F-8 Small Shoulder Bag- Ruggedwear from Domke is a quality shooter's bag designed with a distressed patina finish that improves with age. It's designed to carry a host of photo gear including 1-2 cameras, 2-4 lenses, flash and accessories.

The F-8 is made of water-resistant canvas material coated with waxes and oils - Ruggedwear. The fabric produces a unique distressed and weathered look. The open cell foam construction on the bottom adds cushioning for additional protection when the bag touches the ground. The fabric has been manufactured with Domke's special non-solvent waxes and oils that provide long-term protection from harsh weather. The breathable fabric ages well but can be restored to its original look with the use of the included refinishing wax.

Inside the bag is a removable partition for organizational purposes. Its three interior compartments and five pockets deliver excellent storage and additional organizational capabilities for rapid access to the gear you need at a specific time. The renowned Domke Gripper Strap is tough and runs completely around the bag. There's also a quick grab removable hand carry strap that can be employed irrespective of whether the bag is open or not. The front flap protects the interior from water and is secured with Domke's traditional metal clip.

Dual side pockets are secured with touch fasteners and contain enough space for accessories like a flash or light meter. There's an additional zippered pouch stashed within the front weather flap. Domke's hardware is made for tough day after day use in a bag that is extremely lightweight at a mere 1.7 lb (0.7 kg). If the bag gets dirty, it can readily be cleaned with a hose, damp cloth or soft scrub brush. Saddle or flake soap also works well. Domke does not recommend machine washing the bag.

The name Domke is synonymous with bag quality. Their bags have graced the shoulders of photojournalists from all four corners of the planet for decades. Backed by a two-year warranty, the F-8 delivers quality and functionality that underscore the Domke reputation.

      Comments about Domke F-8 Small Shoulder Bag- Ruggedwear (Brown):

      I first purchased a Domke F-4 to carry my gear for day trips
      but it was too cumbersome so I looked for a smaller bag and settled on the
      F-8. This bag is small enough that it is not a burden of my trips. The bag is
      well made. The puzzle is trying to fit everything into it. I carry a Nikon DF, 28mm G, 60mm G, and a 55-300 DX zoom. To fit all of this; I removed one
      divider in the main compartment. I place the 60 and the zoom in that space
      the 28 fits in the left side compartment and the DF (body only) in the front
      compartment. It is placed grip up front facing out. It is a snug fit! My spare
      battery and clothe fits in the right hand side compartment. The DF will fit in the main compartment (grip up) but makes the lens placement tricky.
      The back pocket is very tight and is only good for a map. The cover flap
      compartment is small. I placed some bubblerap in it to give more protection for my camera in the front pocket. If Domke would add just a
      bit more room in the side pockets, this would be perfect for my needs.
      Now if I could only figure out what to do with this other lens I just got...

        I have a Sony NEX-6 with 16-50 kit zoom lens, 55-210 and 33mm fixed, all of which fits very nicely into this great looking bag. It also holds my extra battery, charger & cables. I did a lot of searching for just the right bag and this is it. I also like the rubbery grip on the shoulder strap - helps to keep it where it belongs, on the shoulder. I highly recommend this bag.

        Comments about Domke F-8 Small Shoulder Bag- Ruggedwear (Brown):

        I was looking for a camera bag that will hold my NEX-5N with 3 lenses: 16mm, 18-55mm and 55-210mm but still be as small as possible and, while I'm at it, will look good. The Domke f-8 preforms on all of these, and I still have room for an extra battery, filters and probably the charger as well.

        The compartments inside the bag are attached with Velcro so they're adjustable to whatever you wanna put in there and it's waterproof! what more could I have asked for? Just keep in mind that this bag is fairly SMALL. No room for big eternal flash or your lunchbox. if that's what you're looking for - you're in luck.

            I purchased this product because I was going on a cruise and wanted a bag that would carry only my camera and the essentials. I needed light weight and durable, and waterproof. It was perfect for the occasion. I have a d300 Nikon with a 18-200 lens. It fit perfectly (when I removed the dividers)with no excess room. I have a removable strap by Black Rapid that has a mesh carry bag. I strapped it to the camera and used it when I wanted a strap around my neck. I was able to carry my camera everywhere, and the case fit perfectly across my neck and fit under my arm. I got more pictures because I was able to carry it everywhere without fatigue.

                Comments about Domke F-8 Small Shoulder Bag- Ruggedwear (Brown):

                I recently sold my DSLR gear (5D and a couple of L lenses) and bought an Olympus OM-D, the Panasonic 14mm and 25mm, the Olympus 45mm, and an old Canon FD 135mm with a MFT adapter. My old bag was WAY TOO BIG, so I did a ton of research on bags (forums, reviews, etc). First of all, I absolutely love the look and feel of the Domke Ruggedwear bags, so it became a matter of choosing which Domke bag to buy. I did not want a bag that was too tall since I wanted to avoid having to pull everything out to get to the lens I wanted. I also wanted a small bag that could fit the items listed above (plus the charger, the OM-D flash, and a little room for keys, phone, etc.

                This bag is just the ticket! In the main compartment I have the 135mm FD lens on one side, the 14mm and 45mm on the other, and the OM-D with the 25mm mounted pointing down in the center... that pretty much fills up the center compartment. The charger lives in one side pocket, charger cord in the front pocket (with extra room for cards, keys, etc), and the flash is in the other side pocket. Finally, I slip an iPOD in the rear pocket. All the gear is easily accessible, fits nicely (not too snug, not too loose), and best of all, is small and light and a joy to carry all day!

                In you plan of carrying any more gear than I listed above (extra body, more lenses, etc) you will either need a slightly bigger bag, or pick and choose what you take and what you leave at home (I also have a Canon FD 200mm that I can take along as well in the main compartment if I put the 135mm in the front pocket (yes, it does fit). That is a body and 5 lenses in a very compact bag... I love MFT! I highly recommend this bag to anyone with similar gear and needs as I described above.

                  A T3i with attached small prime lens (85mm, lens pointing down) fits in the main compartment along with another small prime lens (28mm, under the camera next to the other lens). The 50mm f/1.8 just barely fits in one of the side pockets, while the extra battery and charger fit in the other. A couple filters fit in the front pocket and a small notepad can fit in the back. The zipper pocket in the cover can hold some extra memory cards and cleaning cloths. It's a tight fit with everything, but I normally don't carry it all; it's nice for traveling light. The bag is built well, but not heavily padded. The finish is nice, water resistant, not waxy or greasy.

                      Looks awesone, without appearing flashy, light weight; Compact, fits Nikon D3100 with fitted lens 18-55mm & fitted nikon lens hood ; alongside, my other accessories fit too - battery, charger, additional medium size lens, camera cleaning kit, basic camera lens filters, ultra compact point & shoot camera & a few more little things!
                      One little observation - The hook provided is sharp on the inner side & rigid for the press. It takes a while to get used to the usage. Once you get used to it, you'll be fine !

                        I use my Domke F-8 everytime I take my camera out with me. It's not too big and bulky but fits everything I need and it doesn't look like a regular camera bag.

                          For someone who loves to take serious pictures with a serious camera, but really doesn't want to look like tourist laden with black nylon and velcro bags, this camera bag is perfect. It's compact enough to bring everywhere and not be cumbersome, but comfortably fits my Nikon d7000 with room for an extra (small) lens and side pockets for accessories. The fabric is very durable and the color is great.

                            Got this to use for my FF canon camera with a nice 50mm or a 17-40mm for my walk around shoots. its super clean and stylish, it also has a old finish to it which separates it from the rest, the color will go with just about anything and will get dull, it's made in america folks so you know your getting quality. Its water resistant it so happen, the same day of getting the bag there was a shower so got to test it on that. And it works, comes with a well made wax to keep the bag looking clean and keeping it like day one. all the pockets are really nice, not to big or small, (dont expect to fit any lens in there) and holds spare batteries, remote cable, business cards, all the small stuff you need at your hands, inside the bag will fit a canon FF with lens max will be a 24-70mm, primes will be fine, the room to the side on a FF body will only have room for some small stuff(not a 580 flash)that will not fit in there with the camera but other small stuff will.
                            I was looking for a bag of quality, strength that will last a long time and the price is great, this fits the bill and the camera like a glove.
                            Domke is quality well made in america.
                            Please don't expect this bag on a FF body to fit a big load of stuff, this is only meant for light weight shooters.
                            I find this ideal for prime shooters on any body, not really for big zooms.
                            P.S I love this bag so much I striped my other old lowepro and took out the inner lip that covers the back of the camera when its inside the bag and added it to this bag, this was just something I like from lowepro :)

                              Highly recommended if you need a small bag. This was just what I was looking for - something just large enough for my Rebel T3 w/ kit lens. I even might be able to squeeze in an extra lens. I have a backpack for carrying around more gear, but I wanted somehting small to sit on my desk or in my car seat and not take up hardly any room. Padding is great and bag has a nice vintage look. Doesn't look like a camera bag or a purse, which is a nice change from most bags. Domke is high quality. Can't go wrong as long as you know you want this size: small. If you have a larger DSLR like a 7D or want to carry extra gear in the bag, move up one or two sizes inthe Domke line. If you just want to carry your Rebel or similar DSLR (w/ short lens)... and maybe squeeze in a zoom lens... plus space for a few items in the pockets, like extra battery, charger, filters, etc... this bag is a great choice. Also very water resistant (I tested!).

                                Exactly what I was looking for. I have a Rebel T3 w/ 18-55mm kit lens and wanted something just big enough to hold the camera. This bag can sit on my desk and take up hardly any room. I can also toss it in the seat or console of my truck so it's easily accessible. I could actually cram a 2nd lens in there if I had to, but I have a Domke backback I use for all my other gear. This bag is high quality and will protect the camera just fine. They say your Domke bag will outlive you, and I have to agree, it's a tough, sturdy, well-built bag. Enough pockets to hold a few items like extra batteries, filters, flash, etc. The Ruggedwear finish is nice. Totally water resistant (I tested) and has a nice vintage look to it. Overall I wanted a small bag that doesn't look like a camera bag or a purse and this fits the bill. If you're looking for a great small bag, this is it. If you think you might need something bigger, go up a size or two and stick with Domke. I also purchased the optional carry handle with this becuase I won't really use the shoulder strap that came with it that much. This bag is highly recommended if the size fits your needs.
