    Domke is a good choice. I have one that's over 20 years old. Held up great. Canvas is durable and breathable. Over all great design. I like my Crumpler too.

    Another vote for Domke F2, because they are made out of nice high quality water resistant cotton canvas not plasticy nylon, are not too heavily padded, mould to the body are light for their size, and above all are real "shooters bags" that are easy to work out of and access your equipment on the move.

    One other 'plus' of Domke bags is that they give your equipment that coveted 'beaten up' look in no time at all.


    I use LowePro bags myself, but they are anything but elegant looking.
    Crumpler, or something similar, messenger style bags would be the thing, i'd say.

    No, I disagree the beauty about them is you can use as much or little padding as you need with a modular insert system. http://shopping.yahoo.com/search?p=b...omke%20inserts

    I put my stuff in either a Domke or a Timbuk 2 messenger bag. The Domke is better organized for a photographer, having pockets. But the Timbuk 2 is a lot better looking, and you can order online and basically get it in any color or colors you want. I use that one for travel or roaming around the city. I use a Domke insert to separate and organize the contents.

    Neither is padded, which isn't a problem for me, since I don't fling the bags around. I treat them like any messenger bag or purse, putting them in the trunk and under the table and what have you. I've never had anything damaged or even marked, and I think only someone who hasn't used a Domke would say that. But if you want a padded bad to be on the safe side, there are some good recommendations for them in this thread.

    I do not use Domke bags, but I use lens wraps [camera wraps] to avoid the " coveted 'beaten up' look" for all my equipment.

    I use Lowepro Mini Trekker, I can fill it with Bronnie SQ-A, metered prism, wlf, 3 lenses (with hoods), 2 backs, films, Canon 5D + 2 or 3 prime lenses, few CF cards, 3 batteries for 5D, battery charger and card reader, all the cables needed and other stuff. There's a nice patent on the front side which can also take my tripod and once I have it stuffed like this I use all the straps which come on my chest and belt - beside the normal ones that lay on my shoulders. Very very practical thing when you spend a lot of time hiking all day long.

    Maybe Billingham is the bag for you. I've got a black Hadley that carries my Leica M gear, and a 225 for the M gear plus a D300.
    Great solid bags, and when they wear down very pretty
    ....took the red pill, and just buckled up....
