Domke® Adds Bags and Pouches to its RuggedWear™ Weathered Look Line
Domke, a division of The Tiffen Company, a Hauppauge, NY camera accessory company, has introduced new bags to its RuggedWear™ line for today’s SLR cameras. Based on the success of its original Limited Edition of the RuggedWear collection, Domke has added the F-10 JD, the F-4AF Pro and several Domke Pouches to the already popular RuggedWear line.
Like your favorite pair of jeans, Domke bags get better with age and with the new Domke RuggedWear™ collection you don’t have to wait. The fabric produces a unique distressed and weathered look right from the start.
The RuggedWear bags feature high-quality, weather-tough, durable cotton canvas that is treated with special non-solvent, environmentally friendly waxes to afford the fabric a lifelong resistance to inclement weather. The special formula allows the fabric to breathe while the waxes produce a unique, timeless, weathered, distressed patina finish. By using the included refinishing wax, bags can be restored to its original finish. As with all Domke bags, the RuggedWear collection is made in the USA.
