deuter "Spider" for daily use (with any combination of gear) in the city as I move by bicycle, train, and foot power... If moving by car I might use the Lowepro Compact AW and a tripod bag (only have two tripod bags ;-).

The RB67 always goes in a totebag...

I have 3 in use at present, a lowepro slingshot 303 for the digital kitchen sink approach, a tenba minin messenger for a small digital kit (although this bag is a bit of a tardis and can fit quite a bit of kit in it!) and a new courier ware bag for film kit and day to day use.

Day to day a Timbuk2 bag that was given away at a Ted conference a few years a go, it has a laptop section that will hold 2 cameras and I cam put in a few files or shopping.
Depending on what I take when we go away either a Lowepro Classified 200 if Im taking the Mamiya 645 or a Domke 802 if not. I have a load of worthless bags that came with cameras etc and I have a Tamrac Cyber something that I put my studio heads in.

I am always astonished by those who know the model names for their bags. I know the makers' names, but learning the model names and numbers... wow!

Cheers,

ouch... just bought f5xb and f5xz the other day. bought the xz since it can fit ipad on the sleeve, but i think ill need to get it inside, it rainy these day.

the 5xb seems to be perfect for light gear/ every day bag. the ruggedwear just look cool! my m2+summitar collapsed, few rolls of film, oldskool small nokia phone and my thin wallet fit right in
...
and now my wife wanted my xz for her everyday bag.. lol

i think the 5xb would be as close to perfect as i could hope for...if they just took the zipper out and made the mouth a touch bigger...

Hey Joe, I don't really understand why you want a larger mouth/opening on the Domke 5xb. I've never had trouble pulling gear out of that bag and my feeling is that the current opening size helps ward off pickpockets. And that's even more true if you did have the zipper removed. In fact, I like the zipper for extra protection against the sticky fingers of others. Just my $.02 worth of course. But again, why do you want a larger opening?

the think tanks that i have don't have zippers and have nice wide openings...gear is much easier to put in and take out...i think the 5xb is a slightly better size than the tt retro 5...

Having used now a Tenba messenger for more than a month to carry my daily RF gear I'm strictly addicted to the additional concealed top zipper to get my gear fast and quiet in and out. Without touching the main flap.
Who uses another messenger style bag which offers this additional top access? And what is your impression on this detail? (I'm still looking for a second smaller bag, without notebook compartment)

I have but one simple policy regarding bags: Gears that don't fit into my Domke F2, I leave at home. Done.

Having said that, I enjoy reading bag threads like this (someday I just have to look for Joe's name ). But strangely, I never feel the need for another one.

How do you find the size of the Domke? Is it ever too big?

I was considering purchasing the F2 black as my Hadley khaki looks a bit too flashy for some occasions.

I've pretty much settled on using a Billingham Hadley Pro for all occasions. It is a bit tight for my Bronica RF645, but that prevents me from lugging too much around. It's perfect for a rangefinder with a few lenses, and my Pany GF1 when travelling.

Not that I noticed.

You're going the right direction with a black F2 if you want to "blend in" the with crowd.

I love the Tenba Messenger, but it is full of Canon FD equipment now.

I have a pile of different Domkes, my oldest going back to when he sold them on word of mouth. However, the bag I like the most is my first generation BBB. I'm considering buying a current BBB-e for my new NEX-7 kit, and possibly a second for my Nikon 1 gear so the Leica doesn't keep getting evicted.

I really like the look of their Foxtrot bag, but I can't find any reviews of it. It's kind of odd.

Edit: I thought those bags look a bit familiar. They look to be Courser bags from China. If you do an eBay search, you'll see what I mean.

I need a new bag because I've outgrown my Maxpedition Versipack knockoff. I'd like something big enough to hold a NEX-5N with accessories and a rangefinder or small SLR with a couple of lenses. I've been looking at the Domke F2 and Crumpler 6 Million Dollar Home. Any opinions are welcome! I don't have a camera shop around that I could try out bags in, so I'm having to rely on other's opinions of the bags I'm looking at.

I probably need a couple of bags now. The ones I have are full of stuff already. I'd like to be able to grab a couple of cameras I'm using that day, and remove them when I return home.

I have a really big backpack that doubles as my storage container and holds all my gear.

I have a BBB-E bag which I use for one body a couple of lenses and Ipad.

I am looking for recommendations for a bag to hold two cameras, up to 5 lenses and Ipad.

Billingham F1.4 (shoulder bag)
Think Tank Shape Shifter (backpack)
Think Tank Skin belt & Skin 50 component (modular)
No bag

Classy? Casual? Controlled? Environment in which I can freely work out of the bag set down? I'm inclined to take the shoulder bag. I like to store equipment in the shoulder bag, too. If I'm travelling, walking long distances, or bringing the laptop as well, then I'm more likely to take the backpack. Minimally? with only one camera, one lens? Then just the camera and lens, no bag. If I want to be minimal with an extra lens, then no bag, then I take the modular belt. It all depends.

P.S. I REALLY want an iPad. Version 2 or 3? I'm thinking 2 is the best way to go?

I have 6. 1 very large Tamrac Expedition backpack for almost my entire Nikon kit and paid work, 1 Timbuk2 small custom classic messenger with Snoop camera insert for every day use. 1 Kata backpack with the little cordoned off section for snacks or a jacket that also fits a laptop...and three bags that are currently up on my local craigslist (Tamrac 5533, Tamrac 5534, Tamrac Zoom Pro 4.)

One bag three lenses and a flash in the F3-X. It's my workhorse bag It's pretty much all I need. I sold an F2 because it was too big to carry everywhere. I've contemplated an F6 because it may fit my needs better, but the F3-X has been perfect. I bought the rugged wear waxed canvas one and for all I've put it through it's held up well. Though it smells a bit like burnt wood from all of the fires I've gone to recently.

I'm really happy with my Mulholland angler style bag for carrying lots of film, flash, extra camera, etc but would like something about half that size of just keeping my keys, wallet, and an M in. Thinking that this bag from Filson looks pretty good http://www.filson.com/products/field...all.70230.html

Anyone use one of these?

. . . and made it one space longer . . . and replaced the belt loop with the same slim pocket they use on their other bags . . . and a zippered front pocket like the F6.

Hey, it would still be a small bag. And yes, I have an F10, which comes close, but doesn't have the extra length I want. Either one, made three inches longer, would be great.

I own 3 dedicated photo bags but I never use them anymore. I just got me an Artisan & Artist insert holding one body and three lenses. With that, I can now convert my messenger bags (2 sizes) or backpack into camera bags...

I have two bags, one big bag (A&A DCAM-7000) for my rf camera plus other gears, the other small bag (A&A ACAM-1100) for only a rf camera. These bags work perfect for me.
