    This is the modern equivalent of my old Tamrac bag. Two F3HPs with md4s. Two F4Ss and five or six additional lenses/adapters. I used to carry my F4S along with an Vivitar 283, film, batteries, 3 lenses and an FM2 with three lenses. Never have had a problem with that bag. Rain, snow, sleet, etc.

    I think you're right on that one John. I haven't purchased one since the late 80s and since it's still going strong don't intend to but it used to be a terrific price-performer.

    How much does that lot weigh ?, I carry 2 Canon F1's,three lenses and a lightmeter in a Domke F2 bag, and it's about the maximum I can carry and still be in a physical state to use them when I get to the location without being exhausted.

    The bags empty weight isn't as relevant as it's loaded weight (unless you want to carry an empty bag) and the Domke F2 empty is 2lb 3oz, lighter which can make a big difference if you have to lug it about all day, which is why I prefer it to my Billingham 335, which is more padded, and more waterproof, but with the same equipment in it is nearly twice as heavy.

    Perhaps you should take a look at the Retrospective 10 made by Think Tank. The bag is very well made, its inner pockets are well organized, it is weather-proof and comes with a rain cover and does not look like a camera bag. It is almost the same size as the Domke F-3X. Although not mentioned a lot, I believe a big plus in favour of the Domke bags is that they are washable. Very few other bags can boast of something close to that. The Domke is very well made, too. The F-3X is mainly a shoulder bag - it stays on the shoulder without slipping but is rather uncomfortable to carry across the body. There are times when carrying the bag across is recommended. But, of course, this is a matter of personal taste. One final point I would like to make is that you should be able to take things in and out of the bag easily while it is on your shoulder. With some good looking and expensive bags taking thing in and out of them while they are still on the shoulder can be a hassle. So, I would say, whenever possible, you should try the bag before deciding to buy it.

    Thanks
    I was actually hoping of finding a small padded insert that would hold it inside my main messenger bag
    I prefer across the body because things are always slipping off my shoulders or ripping the shirts off of me
