I have a Black F3x and love it. I've used it as my main camera bag for almost 2 years now and I like it so much that I bought another Domke bag!

I decided to opt for the Domke F-5XC because of the amount of equipment it can hold given its size. One thing I was not impressed with was the length of the strap it ships with. It was much shorter than the strap that ships with the F3x. (I like to wear my camera bag a little lower) The main issue is that the F3's strap is 2" and the F5XC's is a 1.5". I went to the Domke website and found the listing for the FA-150. I figured my problems would be solved, I get my full size strap with a means to hook it onto the F5XC. Nope.

The picture is very misleading. All you are getting is the strap itself and a plastic clip. I didn't even get instructions in my packaging. (as a side note, tiffen/domke may want to update their website for the sake of accuracy) This strap was a "special order" item and I can't return it for a refund.

Does Domke sell a strap that is as long as a the F3x's thats designed to work with the F5XC? If so, I'll buy it. Are there are 2" metal swivel clips that Domke sells? I'll buy them too. I found places online that sell similar 2" metal swivel clips but I don't want to make bulk orders of 500+ from China.

I want to make this work, what do I need to do?
