      Comments about F-10 JD Medium Shoulder Bag (Olive Drab):

      I wanted a smallish bag for traveling light, yet
      being able to bring what I need. This bag is just
      big enough for my Leica m4, spare lens, a Holga, my light meter and a few rolls of film. Nothing more. A tad roomier would have been nice but then
      I'm not traveling light either. I'd say this bag
      keeps me honest! I too dislike the big velcro strip and will probably remove most of it. All in all, compared to many of my other bags, this is one I'll keep for a lot of years.

        Comments about F-10 JD Medium Shoulder Bag (Black):

        Spacious for such a small bag. Tried several other similarly sized bags, and this one has more room, especially in comparison to bags that have removable paded inserts. Perfect amount of padding; not too much. Really a good option for mirrorless cameras. I Use with sony A7. Great for camera laying sideways and one more lens. (I carry 55mm and 16-35). Can also use with three lenses (one mounted and camera pointed downward), but it can get a little snug. The two removable dividers don't have a flap that flops over to protect between camera grip and top of lens, so there's no "cradle" for the camera to point downward. That'd be nice, and I'll probably end up trying to find one. But on the positive side, I'm able to carry an older nikon 200 F4 with it, which is 6" long with adaptor attached. That said, it's tight. But for smaller mirrorless systems like an a6000, it would be ideal. It would be nice if it had a removable strap so you could ad one that was a little beefier. A chest strap to prevent sliding when biking would be nice, but that can be added. The velcro is pretty loud when you open the bag. The clasps will probably last a long time, but they're not easy to open. And if you want a lot of pockets, this is not your bag: one in the back, one zipper in front, one zipper inside flap. That's a little frustrating, because there's not really a good way to segregate new batteries from used batteries. But the front pocket could easily accommodate a speed light, batteries and filters. It's also not as inconspicuous as the 803; it's subtle, but it still looks like a camera bag. But with all that said, I still give it 5 stars, because it's exactly what its intended to be: uncomplicated, spacious for a small bag, and well made. If I was only carrying some manual primes with my A7, or had an a6000, I think it'd be perfect. Highly recommend.

          Comments about F-10 JD Medium Shoulder Bag (Black):

          I wanted an everyday bag. I chose the F-10, because it's a Domke, for size, weather flap, and steel snap hook closure. The removable dividers were important. I also wanted the pocket in the weather flap. The padding is just enough. As another reviewer mentioned, the velcro was not useful - I followed, and removed the fuzzy side. For an everyday bag, I don't need padding, but then it wouldn't be a Domke.

                I own dozens of bags and am very picky. This is my favorite design to date and I own the OD, Black and brown canvas versions. These give you the best balance of ruggedness, small exterior but surprisingly roomy interior, well layed out, comfortable strap with no slip, a nice grab handle and reasonable price. And it looks great to me but does not attract attention in public. A near perfect kit bag. What would make it even better? Replacing the clunky metal clip on the front with a quick release buckle type like on the Crumplers. But this is a minor quibble, just buy one.

                  I bought this to carry an Olympus E-M5 with 12-50 kit lens (nose down in the center compartment) and an assortment of other lenses, spare card and battery, etc. I have glued two lens back caps together allowing me to put two short primes into a single compartment. The sturdy construction of the bag gives me greater confidence that my equipment is protected than in other bags. I expect to use it for a long while.

                    I was looking for a shoulder bag for traveling for my Fuji XE 2 that would also carry my 55-200 zoom and accessories. I compared it to the Domke F 803 which is very nice but slightly larger in width and longer in height. I liked the accessory pouches on the F-10 JD better and the overall compactness. A well made bag that filled my needs.

                        I use this everyday to carry my 60D, extra lens and basic everyday needs (wallet, keys, phone etc). It's comfortable to carry and understated, provides great protection for camera and quick access. I used a seam ripper to remove one of the Velcro strips so the whole room can't hear when I'm opening my bag, but the metal latch provides great closure. Would buy it again.

                          Perfect for my day of shoot! I have one camera body on each shoulder. One equipped with a 35mm L and the other an 85mm L. The bag carries my wide angle lens, card wallet, macro lens, regular wallet, sunglasses and cell phone. In the front pouch I put my two Speed Lights OR a 135mm. With the little bag the flashes came with on the strap I can add my two pocket wizards. Such as solid setup, it never fails me for photo shoots!

                            I purchased this bag for the sole purpose of using it while traveling/day hiking. Very well built, seems as though it will last for a very long time, and with reviews I have read about Domke bags, it should. Although probably not big enough for some kits, it comfortably fits my essential lenses when out for the day. This includes a Canon 6D, 17-40mm f/4L, 50mm f/1.4, and 135mm f/2L. Many people carry a 70-200, and if that is the case, this is not the bag for you. The front pocket will fit a few extras, such as a filter or two and extra battery. I can also squeeze a 430 EXII in the front pouch, but the creates a bulky feel which I do not care for. If you have faster lenses, your not going to need an external flash most of the time anyway. Overall, this bag provides the exact service I was hoping for.

The front pouch can also house a 430 EX II speedlite, but it becomes a little bulky at that point. At $, this bag is a steal. Very heavy duty, and I expect for it to last a very long time.

                                I am using this bag with my new Canon 70D. It fits the camera body and one lens. The camera body will fit with the lens attached if its small enough. I use a pancake lens and it fits fine, giving me the ability to carry one more lens in the bag. The bag feels rugged. Water resistant and made in the U.S.A.

                                  Sturdy and ruggedly fashionable. I feel prepared now for any impromptu moments I would want my camera for without getting weighed down as this bag doubles as a purse.

                                  I own several other Domke bags, the first one purchased maybe 30 years ago. Like the others, this one is made of heavy canvas with excellent quality construction and good design. I am using it for travel, with my Fuji X10 in one divider compartment, and everything else distributed around the bag. The front zipper compartment has a lot of space, and there are thinner compartments on the back of the bag and inside the flap. I like the fact that it has a handle in addition to a shoulder strap. It comes with a smaller accessory strap that I won't use.
                                  My complaints about the bag are minor. The metal pulls for the front zipper can bang annoyingly against one another when you walk. The shoulder strap, while decently wide and with nice rubber grip strips, isn't comfortable if you carry the bag loaded for long periods. I use an accessory shoulder pad.

                                    I use it for a 5Dmkiii with a 50mm attached and a 135L on the side. Perfect to carry around and travel.

                                    I use this as a small day bag for micro 4/3. I carry an Olympus D-PL5 with prime attached, a larger zoom and two more primes stored in one compartment with the end caps glued together. The front pouch is big enough for lens hoods, filters, extra battery and my cell phone. Back slot will hold guides and maps. The canvas is very heavy and seems like it will last forever. Very nicely made!

                                    Probably have bought enough camera bags to open a store. This is my 2nd Domke (the first being a J8). I've been looking for a bag to carry just the minimum of equipment for travel (Fuji X-S1 camera) batteries, a few filters, lens hood, data cards, passport, flash). The J8 was just too danged small and I had to resort to strapping extra pouches to the strap. It worked by not comfortably. The F-10 holds it all and more. If I had a complaint (and I do) I would take off a few points for the strap. The J8 has a removable strap that has swivels on it. A nice feature that would make the F-10 PERFECT. I did add a Domke US Post Office strap pad and it is great.Anybody want to buy a truckload of camera bags I have tried and no longer need????

                                      Great on the DL bag for my OM-D EM-5. I can fit several lenses, the grip, my wallet, etc.

                                      Fit and finish are great. Made in USA. The price was right as well.

                                        I purchased the Domke-10 Medium Canvas Shoulder Bag in Greg and could not be more happy with it. It is the perfect size for my Sony Nex-5n and literally all of its accesories...I even had room left over. Everything in one bag is just awesome and the quality and construction of the bag can't be beat. I have been extremely happy with B&H Photo for alerting me of this special price as well as their expertise in selecting the Sony Nex-5n. I'm very happy with both and know that I will be enjoying them for years to come. Thanks you Domke and B&H!!

                                          This is a really awesome bag. I shoot with two bodies and I love carrying my flash and two extra lenses in it. Plenty of space for my wallet, phone, extra cards, and business cards. In the flap of the bag I typically put chapstick & extra batteries. It's the perfect size.
