Should be the same stuff (or very similar) to that used on Barbour gear; if you can find a "horsey" store, they often carry Barbour gear for riders. ISTR Orvis does as well.

If you're referring to the snap hooks on the back seam and the D rings on the front seam, they were originally to allow you to attach the bag to another F-802, or an F-801 (now discontinued) in back,...

If you use the IR filter, all visible light will be blocked; depending on your digital camera (many, especially high-end, cameras already have a hot-mirror IR filter over the sensor to block IR light...

An IR filter will pass only infrared light; a hot mirror IR filter will cut off IR light. So they're exact opposites in effect.

It makes a commodious bag for my EOS-M with 2-lens kit, flash, filter wallet, EF-M adapter, extra battery and charger, so I'd expect so. I can actually carry the essential part of the kit in the F5XA...

There have been changes in the design, but they've been in the size of the pockets, not in the colour of the fabric. My original (very early '80s) F2 has a different (lighter) colour sand than the...

Maybe the F-8 (http://www.tiffen.com/displayproduct.html?tablename=domke&itemnum=700-80B)? Although the 1Ds/85L combo will bulge the front on that. You're essentially looking at trying to house a 6"...

Well, the problem is that wax doesn't harden under sun and heat, it softens. You'll just have to let it turn your clothes into "waxwear" as well, until it's reasonably worn down. Or leave it as...

Off the top of my head, and not owning that particular head, I'd say that the "tension control" is achieved by how hard you tighten down the main ball knob. I've only seen a separate tension control...

It is.

And on your bag - was visiting my sister, whose brown F2 dates to when I gave her my FTb, so late '86 or early '87. It has "The Rugged Professional" on the stripe under the "DOMKE". It also...

They've used the "Rugged Professional" slogan since pretty near the beginning. I just haven't seen it on the "DOMKE" labels sewn on any of my bags, and I have a lot of Domke gear. They've all, where...

They're wrong about it being an "early" F2; back in the early '90s Domke had various bags available in grey (I have an F1x from that era) though, and they recently had a limited run of at least the...

I think I'd go with the F3x for that. Bear in mind that most of the "classic" Domke bags don't have 1/2" padding, so they conform well to the gear and you, unlike overly-padded bags from other makers...

The multi-compartment inserts now come with movable inner dividers. The FA-211 is kinda big; your lens would rattle around in it. I'd get the 720-220 or 720-230.

They've got an inside photo of the F1x. Notice the space at both ends of the (old style) 4-compartment insert. The F2 would only have half that space available with that insert.

Adam, I'm going to guess that the weight in the "cookbook" is the weight of the body+battery, but not the lens. Canon specs the 600D as 515g, body only (no battery). You'd need to add the weight of...

I'm another fan of the sand. Only bags that I don't have in sand are the F-612 (which, alas, also comes only in black) and the F-1x. But I'm about to remedy the absence of a sand F-1x, since the grey...

I'd take the F-802 and 720-230 3-compartment insert along with the Post Office Pad. Snap the clip closed and carry the bag in front of you and it's about as secure as anything out there.

Andrea - you (or Jim) used to. I have one that I got around when I got my first F-2 from him. Massive aluminium ring for the 4 straps to attach to. Beautiful piece of gear.
