I bought my F-3x a couple of months ago and have absolutely loved it. Its been a fantastic day and gig bag. It easily holds all of my gear and I still have room to expand. Thanks for the recommendation Jon! I think this bag has just the right amount of padding (in the bottom where it counts).

I just purchased an f-802 with the 3-compartment insert for the days I want to take my camera to school. I'm tired of stuffing my f-5x into my backpack. hopefully I will be able to stuff my 15" mbp and a notebook into the 802 with my camera. I'll also use the 802 as my travel bag in big cities where I want to be more discrete.

If anybody is looking for a f-5xb, hit me up!

I love the look of this bag as a day bag but want to know if this will fit comfortably:
Gripped 7D w/ Sigma 17-50 OS
Sigma 85 1.4
+ Tammy 70-300 VC on occasion
My 430 EX II I figure I can fit in side pocket
And of course a couple of odds and ends (charger, extra CF card, AAs, rocket blower)

Mostly it'll be the S17-50 + 85 and flash, but I'd like to tote the tammy if needed

So will this work for me or should I be looking at a J3 or TT R10?

Thanks!

Oh - and a granolar bar (or two) - very important! :)

No problem fitting that. You can even keep a bottle of water in there too.

Each outside pocket can also hold 3 cans of your favorite beer.

Are the new ones a bit bigger than the old ones? I just got one to replace my 20 year old and it seems bigger.

I believe Andrea (PM for the Domke line), over on the Tiffen Forums, has said that they are. It was either her or Jim Domke himself.

I recently got this bag (ruggedwear version) and it came with a square padded insert for the camera section that isn't in the original review for this bag. I am not sure if they started including them with this bag more recently or what, but it definitely adds some more protection for the camera without adding too much bulk.

Yes, it was a square padded insert with 4 compartments. Is there a model no. on there?
