Im looking at getting my first Billingham bag :D. I'm wondering what size to get. I'd like to hold a non gripped body, 24-70 2.8 II, 70-200 2.8 IS II, a 600 ex rt, and possibly an ipad.

Going from the dimensions on Billingham's site the external dimensions of the Hadley pro and the large are the same except for the height, can anyone confirm this?

Also if anyone could post a pic of themselves wearing the Hadley large for size reference?

Thanks.


Canon 60D - 24-70mm 2.8 L II - 70-200mm 2.8 L IS II - Speedlight 600 ex-rt - Broncolor Move 1200L pack + A2L pack + MobiLED flash head

I have both. I think you are right when you say that it appears that the large is just longer than the pro. If the large is deeper or wider than the large, it is not by a large amount.

I would recommend the pro with the equipment you want to take. However, the large will allow you to take the 70-200mm with it mounted on your camera. If that is something that you want to do, the large is the way to go.

You will love the bags. They are well-made, light, waterproof, and offer, to me, the right amount of protection and the ability for the bag to mold to your body.

I went with the large! I saw a post in the billingham thread where someone posted his pro with a 24-70 2.8, 70-200 2.8 and a 580 ex II in the main compartment, and they said it was a tight fit!

So went with the large to accommodate the 2.8 zooms little better :), Thanks guys!
