Thanks for the notice.

For others:

Check your delrin hardware on your Domke bags. Each of mine had broken plastic hardware on the strap.

That's interesting. I've been using them for years and never had an issue. I currently carry the f1-x with about 35 lbs. in it. I keep an eye on it, but no issues so far. Appreciate the heads up.

My gear is much lighter than it used to be. My bags aren't abused
Jon confirmed this issue when I spoke of it before

Mr Domke's bags were so good. Mine are old generation Tiffen/Domke and the Delrin fittings were defective on mine.

I have been using Domke F2 bags since Moses crossed the Red Sea. I am on my second bag in over twenty years of use. The first bag is still serviceable but, a bit frayed and worn from use. It was the original tan color Domke.

My wife is embarrassed to go anywhere while I am carrying this bag so, I bit the bullet and bought a new bag in the oiled finish which tends not to show the dirt as much.

I like the way the F2 hugs my hip while shooting. I always use the Domke Mail Carrier Shoulder Pad and I have a light weight carbiner clip which I clip to my photo vest and which prevents the bag from swinging around.

I did switch the front closure clasps with a pair of clasps that are easier to open and close.

that's a good idea on the front clasps, I'm going to take a look at that. I've gotten to where I can do it with one hand, but it isn't as easy as it could be by a long shot.

My only issue was their website, I gave up trying to use it in the end, so it's possible there's an even better Domke out there for me, but I have no idea lol

https://tiffen.com/dom​ke/ (external link) ...seems pretty straightforward to me.

They've changed it, must have seen this thread :)

*Edit still not great, no home button so you have to hit back several times, no obvious route to the bag that I want, I know it's there somewhere! Just very poor navigation, at least it isn't freezing like the old one.......

Hmmm, had a good look, have to unstitch the webbing to get the new one on, tried looking at mini carabiners, but, no, not quite right...

I truly enjoy my f2 and f3x

like them even more after reading Mr Domke's book. Here's a link to the Tiffen Domke site where you can find his book

Jon I hope you've found this book already. As Domke guru you probably have a signed copy!
