but I'd be willing to bet that what wore the black chrome down was your

keep them in wraps. It's pretty darn unlikely that the Domke wraps are the
culprits. But then stranger things have happen."

Sorry B.D. - Feli is 100% correct. A couple of years ago I took the train to
Washington from Montreal, my nearly new M6 TTL cocooned in a new gray Domke wrap
stashed under my seat. Upon arrival, I noticed that the black chrome on the front
edges of the top cover had taken on that distinctly silvery worn look we all hate. I
now use only older washed Domke wrap, and only older M cameras. The new wraps I
reserve for my N**on gear, which seems to have a substantially harder finish.
