    Domke F-803 reviews

    F-803 RuggedWear Messenger Bag (Military Green/Brown Trim) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 122.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from I hated the Waxwear finish While this bag looks great in terms of color, I hated the Waxwear finish. It rubs off on your hands when you touch it and also when you put something in the back slot such as a book or folder, the wax rubs on that. And if you put something that is rubber there, it will ruin that. I put my Apple iPad there with the Apple iPad case, which is black rubber and the wax rubbed against that and ruined it for good. The inside of the is back does not have the Waxwear finish so you don't have to worry about your equipment there however all of the pockets do have the wax and it can indeed rub off on whatever you place there. ... got a standard canvas one of the same model and am much happier with that.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for city use I bought this as I was passing in B&H so not a planned purchase. I wanted a quality bag that would look inconspicuous on my travels and this fits the bill. Perhaps a little tight for a large DSLR Kit I can easily fit a Lumix G1 and GF-1 with 3 lenses and my DLux 4.Other pockets are available for batteries etc. Internally the design is crude with a single padded cell into which I place a telephoto horizontally and protection from hard knocks is limited. The bottom line is that it doesn't look like a camera bag , is made to last and offers reasonable protection. The lining is waterproof under the waxed cotton exterior. Even comes with free wax!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great inconspicuous travel bag This bag is slim, and has just enough features to protect your camera, and enough space for all the little things you need to Cary when traveling, and taking a lot of pictures. That being said, you can't throw the bag around and expect it to prevent damage! I easily modified the inner removable sleeve to let my camera sit into the bag a bit more with the lens attached (holster style) Overall this bag excells at looking sharp, without screaming camera bag. It also is small enough to Cary all day while traveling without looking like a purse, which is a huge plus!! Just don't get this bag if your primary concern is protection.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! This will nicely hold my Canon 5DmkII DSLR with a wide zoom, a 50mm prime, a spare battery, small flash and a couple filters. ...OR: A Zeiss Ikon rangefinder and a Leica M8, both with lenses, as well as a couple of extra lenses, some rolls of film and an extra battery for the M8 and a LensPen. Bottom line is that this is a very *flexible* bag that's not too big! Also, for those worried about the safety of their gear, the waxed canvas is great in the rain and the bag doesn't scream camera bag to would-be thieves. Domke bags are extremely durable - this is a beautifully well-made bag that should last years!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better fit than I expected. I own several Domke bags, so I already knew what to expect in terms of quality and construction. The best! My other bags are all Sand Canvas. This time I opted for the Waxwear version for a newly acquired Lumix GH-2 with 14-140, 100-300 and the Lumix 20,1.7 lenses. They fit perfectly with enough room left over for my favorite OLY 50mm macro f2 on a micro 4/3 coverter, and there is still room for a dedicated flash. I can't believe how compact and organized everything feels compared to my Olympus SLR system that feels like a 40 pound duffel bag. And I think the Waxwear will offer better wear and weather protection the the canvas has..and that has been pretty darn good.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from F-803 has proven to be a good friend I've had my wax-wear F803 for a year now and it is my everyday bag. I keep my Leica d-lux 4 safely in the padded section and everything else for life goes in the other pockets. The bag has aged well. No structural problems at all although the beige straps are looking pretty dirty (I travel a lot and cycle with it). If I could change anything about this bag, it would be to add an inch to the width so an A4 book would fit in back slash pocket and make the two zippered flap pockets just a little roomier so my iphone would fit comfortably. I've never figured out what the 2 side clips are for but they look good. Overall I love the bag. It's not flashy and its waterproof and sits well on my shoulder. I'll buy another one when and if this baby wears out.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hot Stuff! I've been using this bag on a daily basis for a couple of weeks now and I must say this satchel is perfect for my needs. The bag is very light, comfortable and I know it will be durable, having owned an F2 for years. I use this satchel to carry a Nex 7 with three lenses and a Fuji X100. There's still room for another Zeiss lens in there. The two pockets under the flap hold batteries, memory cards, a small flashlight and small odds and ends. What wont fit in the bag is not required!!! And yes, the flap covers the ends of the bag so no rain or moisture gets in. Comfy, effective and attractive without being too obvious a camera bag. Well done Domke!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2 high end Leicasin a cheap looking bag Man this bag rocks. I have been downsizing everything, sold my 1DS3 and heavy L's and picked up a Leica M8 and M9 and a couple of lenses. The 803 fits both my Leicas with Lenses attached (laying flat lenses pointed up) I was formerly carrying a LowePro Commercial or sometimes my Crumpler Brazillian Dollar Home, also a very cool bag. They are both just too big. I am tired of carrying loads of stuff and want to simplify. The 803 is perfect, feels like a million bucks and my expensive Leicas are not screaming 'steal me'. I did have to customize the padding to accomodate my setup. I had lots of LowePro and crumpler dividers in order to achieve that. Very highly recommended.
