This is the ultimate camera bag!

LLNunez, B&H Photo
8 July 2014
  • Excerpt: The bag is made of high quality material and represents a good value for the money. It is weather sealed, water resistant and has plenty of room to accommodate your film and or digital gear, particularly Micro 4/3 camera and lenses. The insert is removable, so if you have more than one camera you may purchase additional inserts and remove/insert as needed. You can also fit a Apple MacBook air easily inside and and iPad mini in the back zipper pocket.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Lightweight, Strong Construction, Well Padded

Great for carrying SLR lenses

GmanKC, B&H Photo
4 March 2014
  • Excerpt: Have a Nikon Df and the Hadley Pro holds Nikkor 24/2.8D, 50/1.8G, 85/1.8G, 180/2.8 AF, and a Zeiss 100/2MP. I can easily add a 35/2. However, I do NOT carry the Df body in this bag - for me, shooting works best carrying body w/ lens on the opposite shoulder with the bag holding spare lenses. As a larger guy, the slim profile of the Hadley Pro is welcomed - doesn't bump into anything, hugs my side, and doesn't make me any wider than I have to be .

Classy and timeless

  • Excerpt: I use this bag for my MFT kit and my MBA 13". Though it is a little cramped for the laptop, this is about the only bag that is all weather proof due to the top cover actually goes over the edges of the bag. I've looked at and had many other bags, but when its coming down, this bag is the only one that keeps everything dry without letting in a single drop. The material and the craftsmanship of this bag is second to non and feels comfortable to carry around.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Strong Construction, Well Padded
  • Cons: No Shoulder Pad Included

excellent insert

  • Excerpt: Admittedly I don't have a Billingham bag, but i'm very glad this insert is available separately. I bought it to use in my Goruck GR1 and it works perfectly. It also fits a locally made shoulder bag that I have, making it much more useable as a camera bag. This is a simple and well-made solution to transform regular bags into multi-purpose bags. It's not too bulky and the dimensions seem like it would fit a wide variety of bags.
  • Pros: Compact, Durable, Easy to Use, Good Fit In A Backpack, Lightweight

Hadley Pro Shoulder Bag Small

Alip, B&H Photo
14 November 2013
  • Excerpt: This is a quality product that is easy to access and is built to last a lifetime. I have had a previous larger Model for over 20 years and this smaller version is not a replacement just a smaller version for an updated Leica outfit that weighs much less and takes up less space. Waterproof and a sound investment to protect valuable equipment.

High quality

  • Excerpt: Very nice design and high quality product for a DIY camera bag. It is very durable and fits nicely inside my briefcase. Highly recommended... it is the same price as the small Hadley insert and it fits in a larger bag.

Is it a Man Bag?

Dan, B&H Photo
4 November 2013
  • Excerpt: A couple of weeks ago, I reviewed this product and included the following comment: "... [D]espite its large functional space, it is a little smaller than a school satchel or laptop case. When I ordered the bag, I told my wife I wanted something more discrete than my Lowepro sling .... Mostly in jest, she referred to the bag as my man purse. I don't think it is that small, but I guess it depends on who's using it.... I'll leave the man bag debate for another day.

Great Bag

Dan, B&H Photo
16 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Part of my pros and cons will appear contradictory. They aren't. The padded sleeve is quite nice and more than capable of protecting your gear from bumps. It goes without saying you don't want to drop the bag. The poor padding comment relates to the bag strap and the rear pocket. A small laptop or tablet will not be padded even if placed inside the main compartment between the pad and the shell.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Lightweight, Strong Construction, Well Padded
  • Cons: Not Enough Pockets, Poor Padding

Almost perfect

FAR, B&H Photo
26 August 2013
  • Excerpt: The Hadley Pro is excellent. If the bag was one inch longer it would be perfect for me. It is just a little tighe for the small Macbook Air. The computer will fit but just a bit tight. This doesn't take away from the quality and suitibility for what I bought if for. It is perfect for my Fuji X-Pro 1, multiple lens and all the other junk I carry. I really like the Sage color and I like the FiberNyte fabric.

So Glad I Finally Bought This

Flintoid49, B&H Photo
6 August 2013
  • Excerpt: The price had scared me off for the longest time and over that time I had purchased numerous bags that mostly failed to satisfy my requirements for room, protection and looks. I had big bags, small bags, thin bags and thick bags but for one reason or another they just didn't do the job. Finally decided to bite the bullet and spend the big bucks for the Hadley.The size is perfect for a complete m4/3 system.
