Based on the ever popular Hadley Original, the Hadley Pro is a mirror with added features. A carrying handle is integrated with a stiffener into the top flap. The weight of your gear is not carried through canvas holes that could wear out, rather they are attached to a fibreglass stiffner and supported through that. A waterproofed zippered back pocket is very useful for tickets, magazines, manuals or any other flat document. The facility to add extra capacity with our AVEA pouches rounds off the bag nicely.
It has a fully removeable insert with dividers that can be adjusted with velcro fastenings to suit equipment. The insert lifts out, much like a bucket. This bag also features adjustable quick release straps into brass buckles, bellowed front pockets with press-stud fastenings and a double darted main flap which covers the mouth of the bag when closed, protecting it from rain and weather elements.
The fully adjustable shoulder sling is sewn under a leather side patch, which provides the facility to attach our AVEA side pockets. The AVEA03 is the nicest looking fit as they are slimmer and match the side profile of the Hadley Pro. However, the AVEA05's will also fit if you need extra room and are less concerned with aesthetics.

Whilst the bag will best suite those who intend to use smaller cameras, I was able to carry the following:
In the main section (removable insert) - middle slot, a Canon 5D Mk3, with 24-105 lens attached (including hood, reversed) - and either side of the camera, a 17-40 lens and either a 24 TSE lens or Fuji X100S. Both lenses had a Lee Filter adapter ring attached. This was naturally a cosy fit and it's a bit difficult to remove the lenses when the camera is still in the bag, but the majority of time when I want one of the other the lenses I will already have the camera out of the bag. With such a combination the bag does bulge a bit, but only in the centre; this is the great thing about this bag, it shapes itself to accommodate the contents rather than having a boxy construction.
In the front pockets I was able to carry battery and card holders, cleaning cloths, remote cable release, and either a set of Lee filters or a small pair of binoculars.
During in flight travelling I carried an iPad in the space between the removable insert and the rear of the bag and tickets etc in the zipped pocket at the back.
Additionally, on my walkabouts, I sometimes carried a tripod, IN THE BAG! This was a Sirui T-005X, which, due to its compact size, fitted on top of camera in the main section; the removable insert has a fold over padded lid which then allowed the tripod to sit on top of the camera without scratching it. The bag's main flap was then just folded over the whole thing (with the straps set to their maximum position) fully covering the tripod and contents and nobody could tell that there was a tripod in the bag.
The Billingham is well built and lightweigjht and I experienced no problems when carrying it with all the aforementioned gear. The thing I would say however, along with many others, is that it is a shame Bellingham do not include the shoulder pad; I already had a very old Billingham bag and was able to use the pad from that, even though it was a little too large. If you are going to carry a large quantity of gear then get the pad.
I bought the black canvas version and so far find it to be robust and smooth to the touch; you do get a bit of lint being attracted to the material, but this isn't too problematic. All in all I am very happy with the bag, for the purpose for which I acquired it; if you need to carry more gear then there are better options, but if travelling light, and wanting something that doesn't look too much like a camera bag (to the uninitiated at least) then it cannot be bettered!
I wanted a bag that could hold my Olympus OMD kit, plus the odd bits and bobs, and look great as well as last for a long time. This bag ticks all those boxes and then some.
My kit consists of an Olympus OMD EM5, 12-40mm pro, 17mm f1,8, Nissin i40, 3 spare batteries, spare memory cards, lens cleaning cloth and clip on flash. This all easily fits in the bag and leaves me an emty slot plus an empty pocket. I use these for snacks, water, wallet, and other bits and pieces. As well as this, there is the zip back pocket good for documents or an Ipad, its worth noting that you can easily fit an ipad or 13" mackbook air in between the back of the back and the insert. This is where I put my ipad and Nook (ereader)
The build quality is fantastic and straight away you can see it is well made. The leather looks and smells fantastic and the cloth is very resistent to water, keeping my gear safe. The strap is comfortable andadjusted to allow the bag to sit in the small of my back. I cram a lot in this bag, but it never feels heavy.
Overall, I highly recommend this bag. Yes it is pricey, but I would rather pay the price for one bag that will last for 20+ years, than spending the same amount on lots of cheaper bags over the same amount of time. The high price really does show in the quality and versatility of the bag. GET IT!
I wanted something that I could use for city breaks where I probably don't want to lug around all my kit but still have a few options available, but also have a bag that doesn't scream camera bag at potential thieves and could double as a handbag/satchel if needed. The Hadley pro fits the bill perfectly.
I can fit my Nikon d700 (a fairly bulky body compared with some dslrs) with a lens attached plus a couple of lenses. There is even room for a long lens plus a couple of wide options. And still space for my purse, phone, kindle etc or a flash if I'd wanted. It also has a zip back pocket which I never use as you can store flatter objects (kindle, iPad etc) slipped down between the foam padding which is easier access for me. And it doesn't feel too bulky unless I really overstuff it.
And of course the foam padding is totally removable leaving you with just a satchel when you don't need to carry your camera gear.
All in all, v pleased with the purchase and worth the price tag as billingham is built to last.
