Domke has naturally been amongst the larger style of professional shooter bags offering photographers a fully customisable kit bag system with all the great features everyone has come to love such as the Gripper lining sewn into the shoulder strap, Snap steel hooks & 100% cotton canvas…
…but over the last few years Domke have released a number of smaller bags into the range, this gave aspiring photographers the opportunity to purchase their very own Domke bag at a fraction of the cost but more importantly offering a smaller solution over the typical shoulder/kit style bag. With the compact system camera market growing & the retro style designs reappearing it seems fitting to match a suitable & small bag to the kits available today and Domke has the answer in a range of styles as follows;
Probably the most popular small shoulder style bag, the F5XB comes in a vast range of materials such as cotton canvas, ballistic nylon & waxed cotton canvas (Rugged Wear). Colours include black, sand, brown & olive. The F5XB features rubber lining sewn into the shoulder strap, YKK Zippers for main compartment closure, interchangeable inner wall for compartment creation & features a well padded inner wall for protection of your equipment. The F5XB is small enough to handle a compact system style body with as many as 2 or 3 lenses (dependant on size of lenses). In addition you can store everyday items such your wallet, phone, keys & documents. Better yet, Domke bags do not scream out that you have a camera inside helping you avoid & reduce the risk of theft.
The F5XA will offer the opportunity to carry either a single DSLR with a basic 18-55mm lens or a compact system camera with 1 or 2 lenses. There’s also space for your phone, keys and smaller accessories such as filters, memory cards & lens hoods. All this and it still offers the rubber lining sewn in the shoulder strap (Gripper), 100% cotton canvas & padded interior walls.
This is just a brief insight into the small and mighty bags featured in the Domke range, we will be blogging more information on groups of bags over the coming weeks in the hope you will have more of an insight into the line-up currently on offer.
