    I had an old Domke F-6 that was laying around that I used for the trip to Carmel and later Yosemite. The M9 and 35, 50 and 90 lens fit with room to spare as well as the spare battery. I got home and brought the Domke F-6 Little Bit Smaller Ruggedwear Bag which is the same bag just slightly more weather proof. Sorry no images however there's plenty of them on Amazon or B&H.

    Re: Share your bags!!

    First I would refer you to several long threads on bags for Leica Ms. One here just recently and several over at the Leica User Forum. Try a search on Leica Bag .

    Points of view seem to center around two key decisions. How nice can the bag look and how big does it have to be.

    SIZE....most M shooters prefer a Satchel Style that will hang close to the body. These are typically 12-14" wide,8-10" tall and 4-6" wide. The narrow width is possible because of the M body size . You can go smaller but then you lose some flexibility to carry more than the camera etc. One key consideration is would you ever want to carry a small laptop? A 14" bag will handle a MacBook Pro...this can be quite useful when traveling .

    NICE LOOKING..in the eye of the beholder . You will get some that feel the worse looking the bag the safer the contents. Others want there prize possession to ride in style and will go with a custom leather/canvas etc.

    The tops bags in order of discussion .

    1. Billingham Hadley .....comes in 3 sizes and various combinations of leather,canvas and nylon. Available in tan,sage or black. These are beautiful bags. The trend is to go with the black leather/black canvas or nylon to show some restraint.

    2. Artisan and Artist ....comes in a variety of satchels canvas,leather combinations . The ACAM series is mostly canvas. The GCAM series is leather and canvas. They are all black but sport red nylon padded interiors.

    3.Domke .....Jack had a set up with the J-803 satchel and an F2 padded divider that is just about perfect. Photo is available in a post by him about "posting photos" . More room than you need for one body. The smaller version is the F series satchels. Nylon or canvas. This is a real working bag set up and the best value . The bag is about $125. This is what I use when I don t want to be noticed .

    4. Fogg ...the High Street model...custom made in France . Most expensive and they look it. The Luigi case of bags. A little boxier in shape (wider) and with a certain structure to the partitions. Some would say you should be wearing a sport coat to use one.

    5. Any other Satchel with Domke or Billingham inserts .

    Most bag mfg have satchel style bags that could work. Think Tank makes great stuff but their center is on Pro DSLR requirements.

    If you look at the websites of the top 4 and focus on the size ..you will see the slight differences. If you want room for a MacBook You need a Billingham Large (some Pros work as well with stretching). My new GCAM-7200 will hold the MacBook but not comfortably.

    Few have been able to constrain their kit to one body and 2-3 lenses..so I like the J-803 as the first bag even though the macbook doesn t fit.

    Mine arrived on Monday:






    I'm going to use it with my R8 and lens. It's not too big and not small. Really liked it...

    Looks like a small Hadley although the 44" logo isn't one that I've seen before.

    This is little bigger than the small one. The seller told me that this is the Hadley Original.

    I was curious with the logo too because I never saw this one before....But this is the first Billingham and I don't know very well all the models.

    I went to see the warranty papers now and this model is described as Billingham Hadley 44" Black.

    It is not in the website...So I don't know if this is an old model or not. I bought it new for an English private seller. He had another one that was sold on ebay.

    Maybe this one is a rare one ahaha

    Re: Share your bags!!

    The Billinghams are beauties. I like the Domke insert better and use one with my Billinghams. There is a f2 insert with 4 slots that is made for wide angles and is shorter than the standard one. Keeps the smaller Leica lenses for being too deep in the slot. Its like the one in Jack s photo only shorter.

    Re: Share your bags!!

    Thanks for the recommendations guys. The Billinghams are nice but they are just a bit out of my price range for what I would spend on a bag.

    I am narrowing my search to a Domke F-6 for days when I need to pack DSLR and Leica and this National Geographic bag just for the Leica. I think it looks stylish. Anybody used one before?

    http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...ter_Case_.html

    It looks like it can hold an M8 and 2 lenses.

    :-)

    Roger - I am also considering the Domke j803. I might have to look in B&H to decide between that and the NG.

    Thanks for the lengthy reply BTW, very very helpful.

    Look at Jack s post up in "how to post your pictures" he uses his J-803 setup as an example . I haven t found a better solution from a fit standpoint.

    You can't go wrong with any of the lightweight Domke's. Take a look at them before you decide. DR

    I use a Think Tank Photo "Urban Disguise 20" for my RF gear. Absolutely love the bag. It's made of top-notch materials, the workmanship is excellent. Very compact bag considering all that it holds. It's been around the world a few times and nothing has failed; it barely even looks used. Highly recommended.

    Jim, first time I've seen you here . I have an f-5XB and have considered the J-803, purely for the lack of velcro (and thus noise). How is the depth? does the camera disappear into it or is it relatively easy to reach things on the bottom?

    Thanks

    Re: Share your bags!!

    I just waxed my F-5XB and 5 other domke's. Very easy, very waterproof.

    Does make the bags look older, and makes them quite a bit stiffer, but this is the price we pay not to worry about the rain

    I'll post pics later.

    All done by me I haven't had a chance to take pictures. The colour got a tiny bit darker, but otherwise looks good, and I think it'll wear wonderfully!

    I used pure bees wax I bought on ebay, melted in the microwave and painted onto the bags, then I used a heat gun to heat up the bags so that the canvas "sucked" the wax into it. Smells wonderful Oh and don't do this outside, there are no bad fumes, and bees really like the smell I had to run inside very quickly once they got the scent, so the project continued indoors.

    Re: Share your bags!!

    Reposted from FM forums..

    With the start of hiking season quickly approaching, I've been on a quest to find a flexible, lightweight, well built daypack for hiking with some camera gear and I've finally found the perfect bag!

    It's the Miwok, the largest of the trail running bags from Gregory Packs (No personal affiliation with the company, just a happy customer). It's designed for moving fast and it is not specifically designed for photographers in mind but there are some very simple modifications that you can make to turn this awesome daypack into an even more awesome camera bag.

    Here's a pic of the front, back and side...


    Front


    Back


    Side

    Although the Miwok looks quite small in person, it can hold a ton of gear and provide very good support so that the weight is well distributed between your waist and shoulders. The pack comes with both a wide and well padded waist belt as well as a sternum strap which can slide up and down along the shoulder harness to adjust to your fit. The shoulder harness and waist belt has a mesh fabric that provides good ventiliation. When wearing the pack, there's a slight arch in the back which loads the weight of the pack onto your shoulder and waist. This also gives you lots of ventilation for your back since there's a small gap between the pack and your back when worn.

    Now for the part that makes this daypack an awesome camera bag. There are pockets everywhere inside and out! With so many pockets, I was able to fit the following without having any camera body, lens or accessory touching anything else:

    Canon 5D2 w/ 16-35/2.8
    Canon 70-200/2.8IS
    Leica M8.2 w/ 28/2.8 Elmarit
    Leica 50/2 Summicron
    Leica 90/2.8 Tele-Elmarit
    Rocket Blower
    ThinkTank Pixel Pocket Rocket
    2L Platypus Hydration Bladder

    ...and there was still room for more accessories.


    The bag can be broken down into a larger main pocket and a slightly smaller secondary front pocket.

    The secondary front pocket has two small mesh inner pockets that will fit small rangefinder lenses, card readers and memory card holders. One of the pockets even have a little attachment clip that can clip onto memory card holders like the ThinkTank Pixel Pocket Rocket. The main empty portion of the secondary front pocket is big enough to hold a rangefinder camera with the two small range finder lenses located in the internal mesh pockets shown below. Note that in the image below, the two lenses appear to be spilling out but the mesh pockets are actually quite deep.



    In the main pocket, will hold a medium sized SLR and some zoom lenses provided you put in a camera holder insert. I just happen to have a ThinkTank ChangeUp and the insert from this bag fits perfectly into the main compartment of the Miwok. You can see this below with the empty insert as well as with a Canon 5D2 with a 16-35/2.8 II mounted as well as a 70-200/2.8IS right beside the body.





    Inside the main compartment is another mesh pocket that will fit extra accessories such as a rocket blower, filter cases and memory card holders. There's also an external fleece-lined pocket that can hold an mp3 player, lens or cellphone to keep it from getting scratched.



    One really nifty feature of this pack is that there are pockets in the waiste belt too! And they're big enough to fit a rangefinder lens on each side.





    Notice that there are elastric straps inside the belt pockets to keep things from spilling out while you're opening the pocket with the pack on.

    There is an additional large internal pocket in the main compartment that will fit up to a 3L hydration bladder. The bag actually has two exit points for the hydration bladder hose and this can be fed through either the right or the left shoulder harness.



    And lastly, some other nice features that you might find handy are:

    - Compression straps that can be tightend on the fly while wearing the pack. As you empty your hydration pack, there will be more room in your bag and you can tighten the compression without having to take off your bag.

    - Expandable outside mesh pocket that can fit a bike helmet

    - Compression strap on the side to keep your gear from sloshing around and it can even serve to keep hiking poles or a small tripod in place. I tried putting in a 2-series Gitzo and it was way too big but if you have a 1-series Gitzo traveller tripod or smaller, it will fit without being top heavy.

    - It is light at 1.5lbs. When empty, it can be made completely flat and takes up about as much room as a light fleece sweater which means you can stuff it into a suitcase and use it on location without having to worry about the bag taking up half your suitcase.


    Some minor quibbles that I think would make the bag even better are the following:

    - The sternum strap and skinny strap that attaches the two belt straps are fairly long but when tightened, they tend to just dangle around. It would be nice if there were some elastic bands clips that held onto the loose ends of the straps to keep it from getting caught on things.

    - This bag is not water proof and although it is design to shed water in a light rain, it will get wet during a downpour. This means that you'll need to keep a bag cover around if you're out in places where you're expecting to get wet.

    So there you have it, an amazing photographer friendly daypack that, with very minor modification, will be one of the most versatile camera bags on the market!

    I also got the Thinktank Skin 50. Fits the M8 w/ 28/2.8 ASPH mounted + 90 tele-elmarit + 50/2 v4 in leather case. It weighs 5oz and it's very thin but there's a rain cover on the bottom which acts as padding. You'll need your own shoulder strap.

    Re: Share your bags!!

    I second (third, fourth?) the Domke F5XB. I just got back from several days of shooting, and carried my M8, Zeiss 25mm, Zeiss 35mm, and Konica 90mm lenses, plus a Chapstik, a tripod plate, and my cell phone. This was a very lightweight and practical kit, and I could carry it all day no problem. I can squeeze in one more (small) lens by stacking, though I prefer not to. When I'm actively shooting, I carry it with the flap folded against my body (easy access to toys).

    I think I paid $25 for the bag off eBay. Love it.

    Anyone try the Domke 5xc? I've the 5XB, and though it's perfect for the M8 + 3 lenses, I find myself wanting a larger sized bag to accommodate my wallet, phone and ipod. And if there's a paid shoot, can alternate to carry my DSLR + zooms and maybe the M8 and one lens...

    To me, the F5XC seems a bit too deep for M-usage (like a deeper 5XB from the pictures I could find). Of course, what can you tell from pictures?

    I have to say I wish the 5XB had a slightly roomier front pocket, but that's about my only complaint.

    Once again, a strong vote for the A&A ACAM-7200. The best camera bag I've owned, very very very happy with it.

    Plenty of pics around of this on the web..

    Re: Share your bags!!

    I'm still a Fogg Bag man - they are expensive, but compared to an M9 and a few lenses it pales into insignificance.
    This bag has been in continuous use for over a year now (a miracle for a bag whore like me).

    I'm not keen on 'fat' bags, but I did want a bag which would fit 2 leica bodies, each with lenses, with space for a spare lens. More importantly, I wanted to get one body in with both the WATE and the frankenfinder fitted. This had been too much for every other small bag I'd tried.

    Anyway, here are some pictures:
    this gives you an idea of the size:

    here is the front:

    here is the back


    and here are a couple of shots of it packed and ready to go:





    These pictures were with M8s when the bag was new - now it would be with M9s, and the bag is a little more used - but it's just as functional, and rather nicer looking!

    Jono, which Fogg bag is this? I really like it. Do you think an S2 would fit? I seem to recall my M8 with Frankenfinder to be about the same hight as an S2, maybe a tad less.

    Yes, and I believe it had free shipping, even. I wonder if it's because it's the black model (and with the ugly Tiffen/Domke label -- I still need to cut that off). I looked at an olive one yesterday at a camera store and it looked much nicer (and was $79).

    It's a b-laika. it might fit an S2 with one lens (I can get the A900 with the 70-300 in, but it's not ideal, definitely a squeeze). it seems that the A900 is 4.6" high and the S2 4.7"

    The b-sharp might be a better bet - still, why not email bee berman at:

    [email protected]

    with the dimensions and she'll tell you what you need to know. It's always a pleasure communicating with bee!

    all the best

    I have a Domke j803, but also picked up a Safrotto on ebay. I like the padding inserts better on the Safrotto. Other than that, it's identical to the Domke, and 1/2 the price. Worth a look.

    Re: Share your bags!!

    I second the B-Laika. Lovely bag, and my last one in that size (2 cams with lenses, or 1 cam with a few lenses, nick-nacks, etc...). For a smaller set up, I take my Billingham Pola (Body and 2-3 lenses comfortably), and for the large kit, it's the Artisan & Arist Image smit. The B-Laika is the best for size/versatility. The Pola is best for compactness.

    On a second note, I just ordered a Fogg M8-Flute, which looks like it will fit my X1 with strap, viewfinder and grip attached, nicely.

    Re: Share your bags!!

    Wonderful suggestions everyone!!

    Went to B&H and got confused over what bag to get - there are just TOO many options!! In the end, decided on the Domke F4-af because it can fit a DSLR/LeicaM set-up (Especially important when going on trips). On the way to the cashier however, I saw this bag on it's own glass case with a lock!!: HAHA!!

    ................and I fell in love. So I think that will be my next purchase.

    An update:

    I was dead set on getting the Domke F-803 (waxed version) in B&H........however, you can't really help yourself but browse through the aisles when in that store (as well as test drive some cameras)........ and I saw on the corner a black ballistic version of the F-803 called J-803, it is very similar to the F version but it is about an inch taller, also, I noticed that the 2 front pockets have special inserts for passports/pens etc which the F version does not have......... and the best part, it is $14 cheaper!!! So now I am a new owner of the Domke J-803!!

    Here is the link:

    Will try and post photos tonight :-)
