Excerpt: Awesome bag to transport the gear. Great materials and very comfortable. It is not the best bag to shoot out from - can be done of course but the lens access is not as convenient as other models. So I would definitely recommend it for any type non event work.
Excerpt: I've purchased several bags in the past only to search for a more genuine means to transport my gear. I knew about Billingham years ago but could never get past the price. You know what they say, "You get what you pay for", and so I took the Billingham plung.
Excerpt: I had a Billingham Hadley Pro before, but it got to small, so I upgraded to the 445. It is built to the same high standards as the Hadley Pro. I use this bag almost daily and it fits all my gear together with a laptop and other bits and pieces I need.
Pros: Classic Design, Comfortable Strap, Durable, Good Protection
