About Billingham Pro

Based on the immensly popular Hadley Original, the Hadley Pro has extra features; a carrying handle, a weatherproof zippered back pocket and the facility to accept AVEA pouches.
The camera insert is removeable so one day it can be a roomy, well-equipped camera bag; the next it can double as a business case or a slightly posh beach bag. The Hadley Pro will accomodate A4 files and a small laptop computer.
In use, we recommend the flap straps are adjusted to length by using the buckle; the Quick Release System, i.e. the teardrop shape d hole which slips over the brass stud, is used for regular opening and closing. This way you will gain maximum benefit from the Q uick Release System.

Nice bag

It's a discreet and low key bag for dayly street walking. However, doesn't contain a lot of stuff.

Awesome - but snug

By

from New York, NY  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This is nearly the perfect bag. It's lightweight, extremely classy looking and a pleasure to the touch. it's perfect for me to carry my 5D - I can even leave the 24-70 lens on without a problem. But it's a little narrower than I hoped. I wanted to be able to take a Macbook Air as well as the 5D/24-70 to walk around during the week. It juuuuust fits. The front of the bag bulges out. Another flaw - there is no easily-accessible pocket for keys or phones - you have to open unsnap the flaps to get to the outside pockets. Minor issues, really. If I take an iPad instead of a laptop, it's perfectly fine, even leaving the lens screwed onto the camera. The extra pocket thing is really just nitpicking, though I did notice it, so there's that.... Bottom line, it's a stylish, classy, well-constructed bag. You really can't do better than the Billingham Hadley Pro.

Excellent quality bag

By

from NY  -  Photo Enthusiast

I recently resized from a Billingham Hadley small to the Hadley Pro small. There's a few inches difference. I had been using my original Hadley for years. It was incredibly tough, fast to access, and watertight. I expect no less from from the Hadley Pro. A big advantage to the Hadleys is that they are not too deep. when slung across my shoulder or chest they don't stick out too far. They sit tighter into your body. The Hadley Pro has the additional advantage of a hand strap.

Excellent bag, unique design

By

from Singapore  -  Photo Enthusiast

Nice design and tough. Can be used everyday with or without SLR. It fits my D7000 with spare room for a lens and flash. Best with Billingham SP15 shoulder pad to redistribute the weight. Good service by Adorama. Thank you!! I have never worried about buying any item from Adorama.

Well-made, great quality camera bag

By

from Southwest FL  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I use this bag to bring a basic kit with me to work, fits nikon d3100, 18-55, tokina 11-16, 35mm 1.8, SB400 flash, and a nikon FE with 50mm 1.4 AIS attached with not much room for anything else in the main compartment. pockets still have room after all this stuff. Obviously the looks are great, the black color this comes in almost looks like navy, which I like because I'd rather have navy anyways. The quality is amazing...leather of very high quality and brass accents are very solid. Probably not for pros looking to do commercial work with extensive setups as this will not hold nearly enough gear, good for street photographers with rangefinders/mirrorless systems, the bag doesnt scream photographer.

Versatile

I use it when I want to carry less camera gear, my laptop, or even as a bag to carry extra items. It's lightweight and comfortable. Versatile for me!

Billingham Bags are the greatest !

By

from Ft Lauderale, Florida  -  Pro Photographer

I had to return the purchase only because the bag was not big enough for my needs. I have a small Billingham and a Large one also ... looking for something in-between. Did find way I Needed ... the L2 was perfect.

Great bag! Repair cost effective?

By

from Marin, CA  -  Casual Photographer

A fabulous bag that I have used daily for several years. The AVEA bag fits a point and shoot. A my laptop fits comfortably in the removable padded compartment. They will repair the bag for free. The backing of the carrying handle is tearing through the canvas. They agreed to the repair but I have to pay the shipping. It will be 50 pounds from the UK to the USA and I assume the equivalent to there. That's about the cost of a new bag from Adorama!

Fantastic bag !

By

from Phoenix, Arizona  -  Photo Enthusiast

This bag does it all for me! I have 2 Leicas that I carry in this bag with ALL their accessories. Lots of fully adjustable padding inside. Looks great but does not scream "CAMERA BAG". Nice if traveling to some not so savory destinations. I think this bag will give many years of service under any weather conditions. Only thing I wish it had were more pockets to hold all the little parts that make up a complete travel kit.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
DOUGLAS T  I had a Tamrac velocity 7x, worn over the shoulder, it could be moved from my back to my front for access. Replaced that with the Hadley Pro becasue of square bottom styling, sits on the ground, rather than roll over, for the easy of access and roominess. This may day pack, taking what I need for the day from my Think Tank Airport AirStream. Bought it also because it looks sharp without the camera bag look.
bryan d  hi, is this a Canvas or FibreNyte material? thanks
DOUGLAS T  I double checked and found that the construction is canvas. Here is the exact verbage: Stormblocker dual laminate waterproof canvas exterior. Great functional,stylish bag, which my daughter, after finding out the insert was removable, commented that it was chic.
