Dear Jim,
Back in 1988 when I left school and started photography for fun and I dreamed of owning a Domke bag.
But I just couldn't afford one, but I saved for months and finally got a black F2 and loved it.
It got stolen 2 years ago with its contents and when I got new gear I got a F4AF black as soon as possible, then got a F3X sand and then a F2 black to replace my original.
I love your bags as they last forever and I wouldn't and couldn't use anything else.
I now shoot celebrity events for an agent and am always looking at getting a Domke bag just cause I love them. :-)
Thanks for making the perfect bags.

Glad to hear from you. So do you carry a bag when shooting? Which bag for what reason? Thanks for the comments, now I want to see some of your photos. Can I see any online? - Jim

Hi Jim,
Yes I carry a bag with me when im shooting.
I have a quantum battery in the end pocket when im shooting.
I just hang it over my shoulder and shoot away.
No other bag can stay in place like your bags.
I have to run fast and with a Domke I dont have it bouncing around.
Theres pics of my bags and gear on the topic "Whats in your Domke bag" but will load them here too and theres pic of me with my bags in use in my profiles album.

F2; with everything in.
This is my grab bag when I dont know what ill need.

F3X; I use this for carrying camera body, 17-40mm attached, flash attached to body via bracket and a quantum turbo.
This is the bag and set up I normally use for celeb pics.

F4X; Contains spare gear but I sometimes use it at night with setup as F3X or maybe a camera body and a 70-200mm attached when doing candid shots
Thanks for replying and also for making a wonderful bag or should that be bags :-)
