Hi,

I'm travelling around SE Asia for a month and am looking to invest in a new messenger style bag to carry my kit (1 body, 18-200mm, 28-75mm, 50mm, Flash and GorillaPod) as well as having a little bit of room left for guidebooks, ipod etc

Having looked around I've narrowed it down to either the Domke F6/F2 or the Think Tank R20/R30 but am unsure which one to put down money for. Could anyone who has owned either brand offer any advice?

Thanks in advance

I'd suggest the F2; the F6 is noticeably smaller than the F2 and if you want to hold guidebooks, water bottle and other stuff like that, the end and back pockets on the F2 will give you the ready access to them you'll need.

Jon really knows Domke! I have an F3/X ruggedwear and like it. Somehow, I forgot how good it is and bought a TT Retro 10. I'm not all that happy with it.
* Raincover doesn't cover the whole bag (leaves back exposed.)
* Cost--$209 at Henry's in Canada ($149 in US.) Somehow I feel abused!
* With the raincover on, it's not a shooter's bag. Once you cover it, you won't take take it off just to take a picture!
The Domke is much more a shooter's bag. Even closed (where it does a good job of protecting my gear), my camera is quickly in my hand. Much better than the TTRetro.

Oh, another thing. It sure is heavy!

Second Jon's recommendation for a Domke!

The F3 is a special bag. Domke's best design and I have a few. The little cloth inserts make it so versatile. Like Jon says the F6's design is very small. More of a lens bag.
