Best Large bag I have ever had

AlexF, B&H Photo
26 February 2015
  • 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. For the event work it would depend on how you use your gear - how many cameras and lenses you use at the same time.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Great Looking

Great quality BUT...

  • 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. Not to be used on the shoulder for extended periods.
  • Pros: Discreet looking, Good Protection, Lots Of Pockets And Features, Quality materials used, Weatherproof
  • Cons: Heavy with minimal gear, Too Bulky, Uncomfortable Strap

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. But once I did, I would never go back to a typical bag. It carries well on the shoulder, it opens and closes quickly and easily, and I can carry it with the top open and my equipment accessable.
  • 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 flash, tripod, filters & the 335 (all 6months old or newer) - £660 - can't be bad!!
  • 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

  • Summary: I work as a press snapper in the UK and have had a canvas 445 for about 10yrs.My bag has now worn out with lots of holes in the base and corners.Was never really waterproof - lealing at the seams.Main problems that I found with the bag are 1.Equipment tends to get covered in fine dust or fibres of some sort which I put down to the rubber lining or canvas deteriorating - although this was a problem from new. 2.
  • Pros: Good capacity and style.
  • Cons: Appears to be hard wearing but not my experience. Definately no "family heirloom" as will fall to bits in really hard use
