Summary: The reason I got the biggest bag they made was to haul all my Camera Equipment around in the Car photographying my daughter's soccer games..I'm also taking this bag to Europe and using it to carry all my family's electronic Gadgets. Should serve the purpose well...There is no weak points in either the construction or the organizaion.
Pros: Easily Accessible Equipment, Strong Construction, Well Padded
Summary: As a woman photographer, I always deserved to carry a camera bag that looks good and features perfectly as a camera bag. I've tried so many bags, Billingham is the ultimate winner for me. I mean it DOES have some Cons. mostly because of its heavy weight and high price but having looks, functions, and quality, those two things were acceptable. Especially in terms of high price, it is totally worth it as I use Billlingham products more and more.
Summary: The bag is waterproof, although water seeps in around the lug holes at the bottom, but doesn't get very far. The size means you chuck more equipment in than you realistically need, but that's not the bag's problem. It has a solid base and padded sides to protect your gear and it still looks as good as it did eight years ago. Cost me £150 then. Expensive then, and expensive now. But I've never had to think about what I carry my gear in.
Pros: Waterproof - has stood in a foot of water in the sea., Built to last - used and abused it for eight years now., Looks good - also used as an overnight bag...
Cons: Could be quicker to open, like the 445, and it could use more closed pockets and pouches, but that's it.
