The Goldilocks-sized bag

chrism, B&H Photo
30 June 2014
  • Excerpt: In other words, it is just right for me when travelling. I used to use a Billingham Alice, so that I could carry one Leica M body, two lenses, iPad and the necessary cables and charger and still have room for a paperback and passport. But if I want to take a MacBook Air 13" the Hadley Pro does the job just nicely. I can use it as a carry-on bag, and it is still small and light enough to carry around at my destination.
  • Pros: Compact, Durable, Easy to Use

Terrific, versatile bag

  • Excerpt: I'd seen some glowing reviews of Billingham's camera bags, and since I was in the market for a bag for my Fuji X kit, I thought I'd try one out. It was immediately clear that the bag's reputation was well deserved. The construction is impeccable, the canvas fabric is beautiful, and (most importantly) it's extremely functional. It's not very difficult to get into the bag with one hand, the lid closes securely, and it keeps my gear well protected.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Lightweight, Strong Construction, Well Padded

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

Hadley Pro Shoulder Bag Small

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.

Perfect size and best looking camera bag

Matt, B&H Photo
22 July 2013
  • Excerpt: I find most camera bags to be incredibly ugly but the Billingham Hadley line retain the classic, rugged yet refined look of traditional english hunting and fishing bags except designed specifically for carrying photography gear. It's top flap design, along with a nylon lining and treated canvas outer material, will keep your gear dry without the use of a cumbersome rain cover.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Lightweight, Strong Construction, Well Padded
  • Cons: Expensive

Nice bag, fits D800 w 24-70mm 2.8

25 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Yes, it will fit, but no battery grip, just camera and lens, bag will look full but it will close. You could put a flash and another lens, but now you are just laying things on top of each other making it difficult for quick access. This is not a bag I would recommend anyone unless they like the brand and style.

Small-ish bag that swallows gear

AronS, B&H Photo
13 February 2013
  • Excerpt: The Hadley Pro (black w/ tan leather trim) is a beautiful bag. The fabric does pick up and show lint easily. The quality of the construction is amazing, just flawless. I also bought the SP40 leather shoulder pad having read that it doesn't come with a shoulder pad. I tried the bag loaded with and without the shoulder pad and it should be standard. There are cheaper shoulder pads to be sure but it looked right with the bag.
