View Full Version : Question About the New Insert With My New F-2

Greetings all,

I am pleased to have tracked down a limited edition Grey and Black Domke F-2 camera bag. Photo attached.

However, I wonder about the insert that came with it. Specifically, I was surprised to find that the seams at the bottom of the insert are not sewn in a way as to hold the insert's padding in. See photos. In other words, the white foam-like pads can just fall out. Is this the new design? That seems a bit cheap. Even if the white pads were meant to be removed, the open seams on the bottom leave the rest of the foam padding exposed to the elements. This doesn't seem in line with Domke's high-quality crafting found on my other bags.

One last question, do I have a counterfeit? The bag does have YKK zippers and a pretty convincing Domke tag attached.

Please advise.

Thanks in advance,

Frank

So, foot in mouth, it appears that my older F-2 insert shares this construction trait. I just never noticed because the white pads are tucked more neatly in the older insert. My bad.
