Re: Domke: canvas or nylon?

I have both canvas and nylon Domke bags.  The ballistic nylon F6 is my every day carry, and it has proven to be tough as nails, reasonably water resistant, and still looks good after 7 years of heavy use.

I like the canvas bags, they feel nice and supple after some use, but don’t like that they absorb and hold water, and the tan bag I have shows dirt and stains quite easily.

I dislike the F6 metal clips, and plan to replace them with something else one day (or perhaps nothing at all, I rarely clip the flap closed).  The Velcro closures are fine except when you want to be discreet…

As for padding, I swapped the stock Domke insert with another from Amazon that really improves the bag’s protection and ability to hold its shape.  The smaller F-5XB has enough built-in padding and doesn’t hold enough to need another insert.
