    Domke FA-230 reviews

    FA-230 3-Compartment Insert (Gray/Green) is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 37.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from 'A lack of protection and versatility' The FA-230 Insert was bought to supplement my trusty Domke F-802 Reporter's Satchel when I occasionally need to haul photo gear along. Unfortunately the insert is only usuable with slim lenses and strobe units and cannot be cutomized which means I can't get an camera body in. I have to make-do by wrapping a small DSLR body in a wrap and squeezing it into one of the outer pockets-not ideal on a crowded underground train. To make things worse the bottom of the insert is not padded, although is enclosed. To be fair to Domke this combination is purely improvised and they do make dedicated photo satchels which may suit better if you have to carry files, paperwork and photo equipment.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Well built, but poorly designed. It's simple....why would Domke not make the two inner dividers, a) Adjustable, b) allow the top few inches of them to flap down - (like every other divider made!). You should be able to drop your dslr cam + lens straight in to the middle hole - and have the two center dividers flap outward, allowing the body of the camera to rest on them. Instead, it just crushes the dividers, since they are sewn up to the top of the insert. Very poor design.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Overpriced for piece of junk I bought this insert with the Domke F-803 when it was on sale in early April.� Didn't to put this together with the bag.� The overall size of this insert is smaller than the interior size of the Domke F-803.� Of course I can put this inside the bag but it doesn't utilize the precious space of the bag.� The construction of this insert is very flimsy, it even thinner than the single compartment insert that came with the F-803 bag.� BTW, there is no padding at the bottom.� It's completely waste of money.� I regret I purchased this and didn't check that out until now.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from New life for my F-803 As a professional photographer for 20 years I own several (and only) Domke bags. My F-803 must be 15 years old, was a laptop bag, camera bag, document satchel...... Now I got into the micro 4/3 system, and have a Olympus OM-D E-M5 and a few lenses. Bought the FA-230 insert for my gear and was happy to see that the new insert has movable dividers. It fits my gear perfectly, the body with a prime attached in one compartment, extra lenses and flash in the other 2. With an iPad in the back of the F-803 and charger and extras in the front pockets, I have a complete reporter-equipment in a small bag, well protected and organized through the new FA-230 insert. Perfect!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost right I bought this to carry my gear in a smaller compartment of an old backpack (specifically, the middle compartment of the North Face Yavapai bag). It's a very tight fit, but I can cram my external flash, 40D with mounted 17-50 2.8, and my 70-200 f4 in there. Unfortunately the compartments are just a little too narrow to accommodate the 70-200's hood, and the fact that the dividers are sewn in rather than velcroed is a huge con. In contrast, my gear fits comfortably into the Tenba Photo Insert, which has padded, movable dividers, but the insert is too wide for my backpack.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Overpriced for a piece of junk I bought this insert with the Domke F-803 when the bag was on sale at B&H in early April.� Trusting Domke's reputation, I didn't put this together with the bag to check out the fitting until early this morning. The overall size of this insert is smaller than the interior size of the Domke F-803.� Of course I can still put this inside the bag but it doesn't utilize the precious space of the bag.� The construction of this insert is very flimsy, it is even thinner than the single compartment insert that came with the F-803 bag.� BTW, there is no padding at the bottom.� The partition/divider is thin like a joke.� For those who are patriotic to support the American business, please be aware that this piece of junk is made in China.� This purchase was completely a waste of money.� I regret I purchased this and didn't check that out right away.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the price Contrary to other reviewers, I found this is poorly made and not practical to use. The velcro on the two dividers are weak and not holding tight. The width of the insert does not fit the inside of F-803 from wall to wall leaving small space that is not useful.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unlike Domke bag, insert made in China I purchased a Domke Reporter's Bag specifically because I wanted a durable, good-looking bag that was made in the USA, which the bag is. I read the reviews and realized that this insert would be somewhat smaller than the bag interior, and I was okay with that. Unfortunately, this very thin insert is made in China, and feels like typical China quality - which is to say low quality.
