Howard, you have helped me once again. Took the partitions out of my H Pro bucket, and inserted them as you suggested.
Works better now. :)

Hi Dave,

Glad it is still working out for you. :D

I never seem to grow tired of my Hadley Pros ... best walk-around bag I have discovered so far. I got an extra "bucket" so I could have a 3rd partition layout for specialized gear selection. It is so easy to just unsnap it and pull the whole gear package out of the "shell" and drop in a different one.

Take care,

-howard

I have so many bags! I am reluctant to buy new bags for m43's

Im looking at getting my first billingham bag!! i would want it to fit a 5d mark III with 24-70 mk II and 70-200 2.8 IS II. Would the hadley large be the most beneficial for this sort of setup?

Also any more news on the large hadley pro??
Can someone post a photo of them wearing their hadley large for size reference?
Thanks :)

Does anybody know what Billingham bag most closely resembles the Domke F6 in size? Also maybe one that is a bit taller?

The Hadley Pro wil easily fit that in. The Hadley Large will however fit the 70-200 attached to the camera, the 24-70L plus other gear, so it might be a better fit in the long run.

That is most probably the best way to handle different camera outfits, and it is what makes the Hadley range of bags so useful and versatile. It's also a hell of a lot cheaper to buy an extra insert than a whole new Hadley... ;)

I emailed billingham about the large hadley pro and this is the reply

Thank you for your email. As yet we do not have a release date as this
item is still in the design phase. I have made a note of your contact
details and as soon as I know I will contact you.

Kind regards

Doesn't look like its going to be available for a while :(

Just bought a light grey Hadley Pro today for an astronomical price (apparently there are only 20 in the world) - Can you believe the limited edition bags don't come with inserts?!?!?

I took the leap and bought the Hadley large in black/black fibernyte (tough choice between black/black and sage/tan but black will suit anything i wear), can't wait to receive it in the mail :D

My Billingham Digital is here and it's great! So much smaller than the Pro (obviously) and perfect for my Leica, a few rolls of film and my light meter in the main body with a few accessories in the front pocket (lens cleaner, a UV filter box - filter almost always stays on the body, orange filter and my iphone.) I do wish it had a pocket along the back like the Pro does. Just for little bits of paper or my phone so I didn't have to open the top to get to my phone. But that's a minor complaint. I got the sage/brown leather and it's a very casual look, but I like it. Overall very happy with it. Perfect compliment to my pro when I don't want to carry much.

Kim it is a great bag. I have several phone holdersI use inthe leather strap on the end. I haven't bought the Billimgham pockets sold for this. I thought they were too costly for me.
I did add a Billingham pad. Before I bought it I used a Domke Postal Pad, which I think works as well or better. (I am ashamed that I dropped my bag when I had it slung over my shoulder when wearing a weather proof coat. Slippery. Cost me a B&W filter. Could have been worse )

I can fit my d300s with grip on,and 18-200VR lens mounted. Just :)
