I've hear that the Sand looks the least like a camera bag. And doesn't get as hot out in the sun.

Olive
 
My mind was set on the Sand when I got my first Domke (the F-6), but the store was just out of stock. I had to get my order through quickly (a large order together with others), so I got the Olive one instead. The plan was to sell it later and get one in Sand, but when I got the bag and saw the color in real life... I had to keep it, it was just too nice.

Every new Domke since then have been Olive, but I´m hoping that will change, as the next one will be in Wax Wear, preferably an F-3x.

I would also say that the Olive draws less attention than the Sand, if you don´t dress in light brown clothes all together.

My F1x is grey, and I have one F2 in navy and covered with aviation patches. All my others are sand (although I'd grab a grey F3x or F5x(something) if they were offered).

But I took mine in sand, it's really the best colour to me :cool:

I would say it´s got a shiny, deep color when new. I always give my bags a wash (about 40 deg.) which tone down the color and kills most of the shine. It also softens up the canvas in a nice way. The result is what you could call a nice dull green, yes.

Green F-6
 
I have two green Domke bags. My F-6 has faded nicely over the years. My F-2 is almost brand new and still has that deep dark olive green to it. I'm not sure my F-6 was ever that dark but it's been ten years since I bought the F-6, so it has had some time to fade!

I'd love to see a picture.
