It may have been in a PM rather than a post here, but I believe princeofdark mentioned that his D800 is not gripped, but it does have a AS plate on it. Perhaps someone reading with a D800 and a Hadley Pro could post a quick photo of how it all fits.

As an add-on to my earlier review:

Here's a recent development that the Billingham Superflex insert worked well in handling. I used a step-up ring to 58mm for my Panasonic 25mm f/1.4 and bought a rubber hood and center pinch cap for it. This added some girth! Like up to 3 5/8 inches worth. The Superflex size 10-15 worked out okay, so long as I don't load up and fatten it's secondary chamber of 5cm. (You can also get the 11-15 Superflex for more room, but the secondary chamber becomes 4cm x 11cm.)

Camera in the 10cm chamber.

Withdrawing it.

_______________

Today, I got a chance to try out an 11-18 Superflex, which is 3cm taller than surrounding Superflex inserts and 1cm larger in the main cavity than the prior insert. The large cavity is better with the step-up ring and rubber hood and I find it's also better for the new arrival, Olympus 75-300mm II.

The 07 series Billingham steps up to the plate in handling the long gear; shown here with lens and hood mounted.

Well done!
I really like the strap pad.
Left over from working days, I hang my shooting bag from my right shoulder straight down. My strap on my Digital slipped off an all weather coat shoulder, made of coated fabric. Smashed a filter. I bought a Billingham pad the next day. Old habits die hard.
I've used them ever since, on my Hadley Digital and Hadley Pro.

I got a question about Hadley bags. Can I mountain/road bike aggressively with a hadley pro (with just a 50D and 17-40)?

2 main concerns:
1) Enough padding to handle vibrations? I can add some padding in the pocket/slit where people usually store their ipads/laptops.
2) Will the bag stay on my back instead of drop to my side/underarm?

Get a backpack.

No. It won't stay.
I doubt my Maxpedition Colossus would stay in place.
How do bike couriers do it?
Straps?

What about a Think Tank Speed Racer, or one of the smaller versions of this bag?

Wery stable, and easy to work from.

Doesn't carry much.

Or a Domke with a waist strap added? You can get shoulder straps for Domke bags too. Much lighter. Just don't. crash!

I saw a Crumpler today that fit the bill. It's like a sling messenger style that really stays on the back. I saw it in the Crumpler store in NYC. The guy working there was an Aussie and he modeled the bag while I watched.

He mentioned that there was a custom bike shop else where whose owner bought several of them to give to staff.

These are smaller versions in a different color.

That'll be my last mention of non-Billingham. Hopefully the poster asking about such a bag will benefit by this post.

A little off topic but since the Billinghams are a little related to the Brady bags I'll post it up.

I finally have my Brady Westmorland Bag. This will be my Every day carry to take over the duties of my Hadley large.

It is modelled from the Brady "Gelderburn" fishing bag but a little more special.
This Brady Westmorland Bag is number 78 of a limited production run of 100. If you have seen the movie Argo, this is the model that Ben Affleck was using.

The bag has zippers on all the compartments so there's no chance of things falling out and much more suited to every day carry for me. It's a little bigger than the Hadley large and built with the same stormblock material as the Billinghams. I found the leather they used on it is a little thicker.

I haven't tried the Hadley large inserts in it yet but it should fit. No top handle but it comes with a waist strap which I use as a top handle.

This one should last me a while and no more waiting for a Hadley Pro Large for me!
