I will never replace it
I have had this bag for many years. It is stained, worn, and weathered, but I will never replace it. What's more, the sand Domkes have that nice aged look after a few years of hard work.However, the main reason I like this bag is its build. All my equipment is well protected, easy to get to, and well organized. This bag is so well built that it will out live me. Many other bags I have fell apart. I have used it in deserts, snow storms, rain, and mud. Everything stays dry, and the metal hardware has held up.I will continue to by more bags because I want to find that perfect bag, but they will all end up in my closet. This F7 will always be my main bag no mater how hard I try to replace it.The only concern I have with this bag is that it looks too much like a camera bag. This attracts thieves. Maybe Domke can make a camera bag that looks like a diaper bag (or nappy bag for my friends in Britton.)You spend thousands on gear, so you can spend a couple hundred on your bag.
A bag that holds nearly everything
I use this for transporting all my needed gear to a remote site....especially for sports. Holds my D1H and D300/MD-B10 combo, pluse 80-200, 300, and four short zooms/primes. And that is only inside. Pockets for all accessories, notepads, etc in front. Side pockets hold extenders, batteries, flash, etc. Top mesh pockets useful for all kinds of stuff as well. Handles rough conditions without showing much wear.
I have two complaints that keep me from five stars. No back pocket, like original Domke bag, and no version without padding, again like original Domke bag (would allow bag to be smaller and still hold as much or more).
Simply the best bag ever
I carry this bag with me every day now. Keeps all I need and more.
The material of the bag feels strong and durable.
I think this bag will last for a lifetime.
And one more thing...it looks really nice to! :D

It is great to have all my equipment in one bag, even my longer lens. And the bag looks really sharp also.

Exactly What I Needed
No zippers. Everything is easy to get to. Probably the last bag I'll buy.
