Excerpt: I recently resized from a Billingham Hadley small to the Hadley Pro small. There's a few inches difference.<br />I had been using my original Hadley for years. It was incredibly tough, fast to access, and watertight. I expect no less from from the Hadley Pro.<br />A big advantage to the Hadleys is that they are not too deep. when slung across my shoulder or chest they don't stick out too far. They sit tighter into your body.
Pros: Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: The Billingham Hadley Small proved disapointing. I have been looking for a nice, elegant bag for my rangefinder system for a while and read/viewed reviews that highly recommended this bag. Although the bag has nice canvas, I expected more for the price. It came with some dust on the canvas which I overlooked. When I placed my camera with a Noctilux lens inside it, the bag looked quite big --with the small front pouches sticking out.
Excerpt: Nice design and tough. Can be used everyday with or without SLR. It fits my D7000 with spare room for a lens and flash. Best with Billingham SP15 shoulder pad to redistribute the weight.<br /><br />Good service by Adorama. Thank you!! I have never worried about buying any item from Adorama.
Excerpt: I use this bag to bring a basic kit with me to work, fits nikon d3100, 18-55, tokina 11-16, 35mm 1.8, SB400 flash, and a nikon FE with 50mm 1.4 AIS attached with not much room for anything else in the main compartment. pockets still have room after all this stuff. Obviously the looks are great, the black color this comes in almost looks like navy, which I like because I'd rather have navy anyways. The quality is amazing..
Excerpt: I had to return the purchase only because the bag was not big enough for my needs. I have a small Billingham and a Large one also ... looking for something in-between. Did find way I Needed ... the L2 was perfect.
Pros: Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Lightweight, Strong Construction, Well Padded
Excerpt: I have several Billinghams and the Hadley Pro is the one I use most often due to its versatilitty. The bag has ample space to carry a DSLR camera with a small lens attached and two additional lenses with a speedlight in its bellow pockets. Its both comfortable to use and the bag does not scream CAMERA! like its competitors. That is critical for travel so as not to attract the wrong kind of attention.
Pros: Comfortable Strap, Discreet, Good Protection, Lightweight, Versatile, Weatherproof
