DOMKE F-5XB Mirrorless Camera Bag Ruggedwear Cotton Canvas

Wednesday, October 10, 2018

What's not to love about a tool that performs two or more functions in one tool? The DOMKE F-5XB cotton canvas bag can be worn as a camera bag or as a day bag to keep personal items like your smartphone and wallet.
The weathered-look, rugged design of the DOMKE F-5XB and bronze patina wax finish makes the bag not stand out as a camera bag which is perfect if you plan to use the DOMKE F-5XB bag for commuting to work.
The DOMKE F-5XB uses ruggedwear/cotton canvas fabric so the bag is thick but lightweight and durable like straight canvas so the DOMKE F-5XB will wear very well.
You can wear the DOMKE F-5XB as a shoulder bag or wear it as a waist bag by threading the non-slip shoulder strap gripper through the belt loops of a pair of trousers.
The DOMKE F-5XB cotton canvas bag is big enough to fit a weather resistant fujinon 23mm F2 lens attached to a Fujifilm X series digital SLR camera and two other lenses (35mm F1.2 and 56mm F1.2).
With that said, you can pretty much fit any mirrorless camera with its kit lens and a maximum of two lenses in the DOMKE F-5XB ruggedwear bag.

The main compartment of the DOMKE F-5XB bag opens up via a velcro hook-and-loop fastener flap and double zips that reveal two padded dividers which separate the main compartment into sections.
The middle section of the DOMKE F-5XB cotton canvas bag is the largest section big enough to fit a camera and kit lens.
The other pocket sections are big enough for two 50mm lenses or a 50mm lense with  a 19mm bayonet lens mounted on a 30mm lens.
There is even space for a few smaller camera accessories like batteries, a lowell go lite, memory cards and a camera lens cleaning air blower brush.
The hardware of the DOMKE F-5XB mirrorless camera bag including the d-rings, zip pullers and the swivel bolt snap hooks are made of stainless steel with a black finish.
As far as maintenance, the DOMKE F-5XB cotton canvas bag is not machine washable but can be cleaned with a damp cloth or washed under a shower with soap flakes, neatsfoot oil or non-detergent soap.
The DOMKE F-5XB is water resistant but it's a good idea to treat it with waterproofing spray like Nikwax TX or Scotchguard for additional water repellency if you plan to be somewhere where it rains extremely hard.
Included with the DOMKE F-5XB bag is a RuggedWear Wax refinishing ointment tin to restore the wax finish of the bag.
