Excerpt: I have tried many different camera bags to carry all my gear, and this is the only one that can handle it all with room to spare. My standard gear consists of a Nikon D3x, three Nikon lenses (14-24 f2.8, 24-70 f2.8, and 70-200 F2.8, flash unit, remote, and a log of the smaller stuff like batteries,...

It can nicely fit on my shoulder and I feel confotable when I carry 7D with 24-70mm f2.8, 70-200mm f1.2, and 50mm.there is just one thing that should improve is that the super flex partition with the bag cannot...
Pros: Comfortable, Strong Construction, Well Padded
Cons: Hard To Access Equipment, Not Enough Pockets
Excerpt: For years I lusted after the classic Billingham 550 camera bag. Finally, after a trip to Africa during which I had to divide my camera gear between two too-small bags, I ordered one with some trepidation. Would it live up to the hype? It did.
Pros: Good dust protection, Strong Construction, Superb craftsmanship, Swallows a lot of gear, Well Padded
Excerpt: This is a fantastic shoulder bag, I carry my D3x + 3 Zeiss lens and a Nikon 70-200 lens, 2 flash units and bits of other gear. Everything fits just right, I love this bag, I changed from a Temba shootout, large shoulder bag as there wasn't enough room for my gear but the Billinham fits nicely.
Pros: Best bag ever, Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Strong Construction, Well Padded
Excerpt: This bag encompasses everything that is good about photography. It is versatile, it suits all users, it has withstood the test of time and gets better with age. I can only imagine that at it's creation it was an instant classic and still remains one today.
Pros: Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Strong Construction, Well Padded
Excerpt: 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..
Pros: Easily Accessible Equipment, Strong Construction, Well Padded
Excerpt: 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.
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.
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.
