  • Excerpt: Used to carry and protect newly acquired Nikon DSLR D7000 along with older SLR Kit. All necessary pieces are quickly at hand. Very stylishly crafted and a distinctive addition to my new DSLR. Organization of equipment is easily attained.

  • Excerpt: I have a few Billinghams and this is the largest one I have. I love the quality of Billinghams and its practical uses. But the one complaint of this model is that its heavy once the gear is in and the strap while relatively comfortable, it does not wear well on the shoulder over time.

The best of the best

  • Excerpt: [...] When the bag arrived I felt like a kid getting his first bicycle. Total pride in ownership. This bag is nothing like the ballitstic nylon bags that are full of padded niches and compartments. It took me a bit to get it organized the way I wanted because it is so unique.
  • Pros: Strong Construction, Stylish, Very Protective
  • Cons: None

  • Summary: Firstly - I have a 335 NOT a 445 but there isn't a review space for the 335 so I thought I'd drop my review in here - kinda fits?! I got my Billingham as part of a job lot through a local advertising rag - Dynax 7 + VC7, sigma 28-300, sigma 24-70, 2 x canon a1's + winders, canon 28, 50, 75-200, 199...
  • Pros: jeez - where do I start??, Size, materials, feel, comfort, versatility., If you have a 335 or 445 I can heartily recommend getting the backpack harness - makes a great bag even better!
  • Cons: Because its so apacious there's a temptation to fill it - my back fully laden weighs thirty pounds - at least its good exercise!!nearly

  • Pros: Good capacity and style.

  • Summary: Just like a Barbour jacket, a Newbery bat or a Bentley, this is a timeless English classic. I’ve had my Billingham for 10 years and it’s great. Originally, I had no intention of buying a Billingham.
  • Pros: Build Quality, Doesn't shout "Camera Bag!", Protection offered
  • Cons: Can't remove shoulder strap and fit neoprene replacement

  • Summary: If you can get past the price, this bag will last for ever, get the right internal dividers/padding and your equipment will last too. Its a bit heavy but you can buy a back pack harness, Highly recommended.
  • Pros: Quality of Material., Strength., Looks like a weekend bag rather than a camera bag., can withstand a lot of abuse (heavy rain, trodden on etc etc), Cleans up quite easily.
  • Cons: price., a bit awkward to get in to if in a hurry., weighs a bit fully loaded.

  • Summary: The Billingham 445 has become my everyday, all duty camerabag. I easily get 3-4 bodies (Minolta XM, SRT-303, XD-7 with winder and X-700 with motordrive), 6-8 lenses, a flashgun with accessories, a lightmeter and lots of filters, films and small items into it.
  • Pros: Excellent materials used, beautfully crafted, inconspicuous,, lots of space, offers excellent protection for your gear against every threat.
  • Cons: expensive, but splendid value for money
