Camera Bags and Accessories : New Domke Products, Including RuggedWear Line, DebutFebruary 1, 2012
The preferred bag of the White House News Photographers Association for more than 30 years, Domke now offers RuggedWear camera bags that feature weather-tough, durable cotton canvas treated with non-solvent, environmentally friendly waxes to give the fabric a lifelong resistance to inclement weather. The special formula allows the fabric to breathe while the waxes produce a timeless, distressed and weathered look.
Domke’s RuggedWear line includes courier bags, slings and satchels, ergonomically designed for comfort and performance. Like other Domke bags, the RuggedWear collection is designed to provide photographers with a solution that is easy to work with while providing protection.
In all RuggedWear bags, the soft, well-padded interior protects lenses from scratches, and a flap and oversized YKK zipper provide photographers with quick access. Steel hardware keeps the shoulder strap safely secured, and twin tracks of high-friction rubber are woven into the thickest, toughest cotton webbing, allowing it to cling to the shoulder. Interior and exterior pockets offer additional storage for accessories.
Domke jackets and vests offer photographers a combination of function and fashion, made of cotton with multiple pockets that provide room for camera accessories. The vests and jackets have pocket storage, ventilation and waist-adjustments tabs, and the jackets also offer zip-off sleeves and a stowaway nylon hood.
As with all Domke bags and products, their jackets, vests and the RuggedWear collection are made in the USA. tiffen.com
