"Like great reruns, a good photo bag style is hard to improve on. But Tiffen’s Domke Rugged Wear Journalist series does just that." More...

     
 

"Overall I think the Domke Next Generation Ledger bag is a good fit for a mirrorless kit. It is made in the USA and definitely seems to be built like a tank. The lack of included dividers is a down side, especially for a smaller camera kit. The idea is that the bag is flexible for many different shooters, but that means you have to buy more dividers (at $20 each) to make the most of it. Speaking of buying… Domke bags are known for being well made AND expensive. That made-in-the-USA craftsmanship comes at a cost. The Ledger is the smallest bag in the Journalist series and it lists for $319. I’ve had more than one client see my bag and go to buy one, only to be turned off by the high price. It kind of makes me think of Leica cameras… If the Domke bag is what you’re looking for I guess the price won’t matter. The Domke Next Generation series marks a nice update of the classic shooter’s bag." More...

     
 

"I highly recommend the Domke Metro Messenger bag to any multi-camera toting amateur, semi-professional, photographer’s assistant, and pro photographer. It’s a great all around bag and perfect for carrying equipment for street photography, short films, and outdoor portraiture (I’ve used it for all three, so I know).

Rating: 9/10

Recommendation: Buy this bag. It will outlast you." More...

     
 

"The Domke Metro Messenger is the best looking and one of the most well crafted bags I have used." More...

     
 

"Overall, the Ledger bag from Domke was a pleasure to use at NAB. It made my work at the show a good bit easier. It can hold a surprising amount and provides a lot of protection for your gear. Domke offers a wide range of accessories to go with the bag as well as similar bags in smaller and larger sizes. They are all viewable on Domke’s website at tiffen.com/domke. With its $289.95 retail price, the Ledger proved to be well worth the money with its ease of use, features and quality construction. It was so easy to use I forget to get a picture of the bag while I was in Las Vegas. I kind of forgot it was there. Now that’s a good bag!"  More...

     
  "I was provided a Domke Next Generation Chronicle Camera Bag for the purposes of writing a review by the Tiffen Company, and tested it under many widely varying field conditions. While I didn’t pay for my Chronicle Bag, I never would have trusted my gear to it on several continents if I didn’t think it was a great, convenient, and well-made camera bag, and my opinions are always honest and outspoken."  More...
     
 

"Once you touch it you immediately know your holding a quality product.  The material is smooth and strong, the straps are great, the antique steel hardware is beautiful and functional, and the interior is just a great place to protect your camera gear. If your looking for a high quality messenger bag, look no further."

"This camera bag is durable, sporty and lightweight -- perfect for an active photographer friend or relative. The bag isn't bulky like other camera bags, but its compartments and sections make it super convenient and easy to organize various camera parts, small lights and accessories. Tiffen also offers free shipping if you order the bag directly from its site." More...

     

  "One feature you won’t find on bags from other companies is the Quiet system, which gives you the option of silencing the Velcro closures with a small flap."  More...
     
    "At $269.95 the Herald camera bag by Domke isn’t the cheapest equipment bag, but it is one of the highest quality bags you will touch. If you have a DSLR, some GoPros, as well as your iPhone 6 and a tablet that you want to carry together, this is the bag you want and can trust." More...
     
 

"What I most love about this new Domke bag is that it keeps its simple appearances, while adding some welcome features that make it even more pleasurable to use." More...

     
 

“Domke has long been the go-to brand for photojournalists, and its Director bag is a smart choice for light travel with a DSLR camera and a couple of small to medium lenses.” More...

     
 

“And even on occasions when we would usually just strap a camera over our shoulder, we preferred to use the Crosstown Courier. The extra pockets were just too convenient.” More...

     
 

"I love the bag and plan to use it until I die. But it’s not all good news. Like just about all modern camera bags, this one is very expensive. The list price is $425 but Amazon sells it for $304. Even in the $300 range I think it’s priced too high, but then again if you want quality and a name brand bag, you’re probably going to be in that neighborhood no matter what." More...

     
   

"I am very impressed with the Domke RuggedWear Military bag.  It can hold everything but the kitchen sink and do it safely with the high end padding throughout the interior.  When it comes down to it, we place so many objects of high value into our bags, but rarely buy bags of value.  After experiencing the versatility, durability, and mobility of this large bag I am looking into other Domke camera bags for my shorter, one or two lens, hikes.  Great bag and made in the USA!"  More...

     
    "The Domke Herald bag is a terrific camera bag—rugged and able to withstand the elements—which protects your gear without announcing to the world you are carrying around expensive camera gear. Lastly, in case your bag is lost or stolen permanently imprinted on each bag is a unique registration number that is tied to owner’s contact information, what a great feature!  I highly recommend that you give this bag a try."

"The Domke brand is a legend in the photo bag industry. And while the company recently updated its line-up of satchels, don’t expect a major overhaul. That’s a good thing." More...

     
 

"I really love this bag, particularly its classic retro look. I’ll most likely end up using it more for personal photography than commercial work, but it’s a bag that is well-suited for both. Even though it is the smallest bag in the Journalist series, I never felt limited in terms of what I could or couldn’t pack. This bag should appeal to a wide variety of photographers, from photojournalists and nature photographers, to hobbyists and travel photographers, as well as every photographer in between. The price may be a bit steep for a bag this size, but I think you absolutely get what you pay for in terms of quality, longevity, and adaptability. I’ve given it a 4.5 out of 5 due to not enough dividers." More...

     
      

"I did not think the Domke would be as comfortable as my daily routine, but it was. The Domke Chronicle is nondescript. The logo on the side of the bag can be tucked away. Unlike its grandfather the F-2, the Chronicles has a backbone. It will stand up on its own with its proper padding. This makes it more of a proper camera bag for today’s camera gear. Even though our Editor-in-Chief liked the Domke F2, I felt that it was a little flimsy and it was never really a choice for me. The Chronicle remedied all the issues I had with the F2 and more. A photojournalist would definitely appreciate this bag. The quick access and the comfort it provides would make the bag great to use on terribly long days where you have to take care of many jobs."  More...
