Nice Bag

Almost as perfect as the Original

14 February 2014
  • Excerpt: I got this bag to replace my damaged Hadley Original (freak accident that ripped the canvas). The Original was the perfect bag for me, capable of comfortably carrying my Nikon w/ 3 primes (1 mounted), various supplies, and house keys/wallet. It was about as large as one would want for a functional street bag. It offered easy access, conformed to my back/hip sufficiently, and wasn't too heavy (I never loaded it to the max).
  • Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Spacious, Styling
  • Cons: Bulky

Found it

  • Excerpt: Im an amateur user but really love to look put together and with a normal "camera bag" I wasnt happy, always switching bags. This bag I have had about a year and it is still great. I carry it literally everyday. Days where im out Ill have the camera insert in and take pictures. Other days Ill take the insert out, put a padded sleeve for my 15" macbook and carry that. Ipad mini fits perfectly in the front pockets for the photo outings.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Lightweight, Strong Construction, Versatile, Very Rain Resistant, Well Padded

You will love it !!!

  • Excerpt: This bag is big enough to carry all this stuff : canon 5D mkII, canon 70-200 f2.8 IS + 1.4X, canon 50 f1.2, canon 24 f1.4, canon 24-70 f2.8 mkII, canon 100 f2.8 IS macro, canon Speedlite 430EX, extra battery with charger, 4 filters, 3 CF cards, macbook air. The quality is great. When the bag is fully loaded, the strap is uncomfortable. You will need the shoulder pad (SP-20) if you expect to carry the bag for a long period.
  • Pros: Compact, Durable, Good Protection, Lightweight

Quality with Class

  • Excerpt: Waoh! Where do I begin..The canvas material of this bag is simply awesome, it has a smooth and soft feel to it. The overal design of the bag looks very nice and I can even fit my 15" Mac with retina in it. Although sometimes when I don't have my laptop in it, I wish it would be smaller. Given the price tag, I was first hesitant to buy it, but I thought I could always return it later if I'm not pleased with the bag. However, after I got the bag, it was too hard to resist.
  • Pros: Easily Accessible Equipment, Strong Construction, Well Padded
  • Cons: Cumbersome

Solid Stylish Functional

The Venerable Bean, B&H Photo
25 April 2013
  • Excerpt: This is a solid, stylish, and functional bag. The material is heavy and of a fine water repellent weave. I have wanted a bag which does not look like a camera bag for small location shoots and travel where I need both camera and laptop computer. I can fit my 13" MacBook Pro snugly in the back inside divider.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Lightweight, Strong Construction, Well Padded

Well-made, nice looking, and functioning

Taiker, B&H Photo
27 February 2013
  • Excerpt: First I was't so sure about the size of this big. I was looking for a walk-around bag, a bag that can fit one DSLR nicely and sometime one lens. This bag did its job really well. When I just got the bag, it is much bigger than I expected, but just the size I need. (I am quite bulk, so a tiny small back on me will be really really weird) It fit my 5D Mark III with 24-105 (without hood) nicely. Vertically insert the camera w/ lens, still gives a plenty of space.
  • Pros: Comfortable Strap, Compact, Durable, Good Protection, Lightweight
  • Cons: Not Enough Pocket Room, Too Small

Problems using Hadley shoulder Bag

Shooter, B&H Photo
11 January 2013
  • Excerpt: I am a Pro user, wanted a more attractive bag which I thought might initially impress or attract new clients. The bag is attrctive, well made, and sized well, but has one major defect: the leather closures on the top flap are not very secure, and easily opened, unlike the locking plastic closure on the better LowePro, Tamrac, etc. bags.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Strong Construction, Well Padded
  • Cons: Easily Opened, Insecure Top Closure
