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.
