I would use the Hadley Pro for that (I have both).

Can you try both yourself, and then return one? Bags are such a personal choice! :cool:

I can order both and decide which to keep, but didn't wanna go through that hassle, I've got many other things to return from this holiday shopping. I just bought a used Hadley small from a fellow potn member, hopefully it'll meet my needs. Tks for your input though.

i agree that you will likely be better off with the Hadley Pro.

i have the Hadley Small, Pro and Large. I use the Small for my Leica system, or my 5D3 and 1 lens (non-tele's).

I regularly wish for more bags.
Hadley Digital is amazing for travelling light. I wish it were a little larger. And I can't carry a tablet.
Hadley Pro carries everything. I can make it heavier than I want to carry.

My Domke F3X is getting more use now, from time to time.

I could use some advice on which to pick as well.

I want to take with me 5D3 (without grip), 24-70, 85, 135, a rMBP 13 and a 600ex-rt+remote transmitter.
I have the restro 10 and 30, and both can't carry the rMBP 13 so I think its time to get something better.

I don't know if the pro is large enough or the large is too big. The 307 looks too big, and the 5 serious I just can't tell if they will fit or not.
There is a large range in general and the billingham site doesn't have enough photos of the inside of the bag to make the right choice, so I get confused every time I try to find the right one.

The Hadley Large is what I would suggest. It will swallow all of that easily, and will remain comfortable on your shoulder.

Cheers.
I will order one next week most likely. Now I just need to choose on a color :)

Anyone Care to comment on ordering off of amazon for this bag?

I ordered from Amazon from K&M Camera and TheImagingWorld and they appear to be authentic from everything I can tell... of course, I would never be able to tell if it's a fake but in any case they appear to be real and feel real nice.

BTW they posted on their Facebook that there is a new Hadley Large Pro.
Looks pretty interesting. With better laptop sleeve and a bit more room.

I'm digging the Sage Chocolate!

I wish it was designed with the ball clogs instead of the buckles but I can see why it uses the buckles. For me the buckles turn it into more of an A-B storage bag than a bag to work out of. Just bought an 05 series bag for extra storage anyway, my collection is growing.

If anyone buys it Hadley Pro Large please let us know how you find working out of it compared to the ball clog hadleys.

Has anyone ever tried putting a Hadley Small insert into something larger like a Hadley Pro?

I'm looking to simplify my gear to most likely an X100s and an RX100 for backup. However, I don't like buying bags which will simply fit all my camera gear with nothing else. At the very least I want room for a small(ish) umbrella and a water bottle. This is why something like a Hadley Small is unsuitable.

On the other hand, buying a Hadley Pro would solve the space issue, but the original insert that comes with the pro would be far too big for just the X100s and RX100.

So putting the Hadley Small insert into a Hadley Pro bag seems like the next best thing, but I don't know if it would actually work well in practice. Thoughts?

My Billingham bags fit better now.

Hadley Pro and H. Digital

My Nikon 1 gear is gone. I bought a second Olympus camera as a back up

Olympus OMD
Olympus E-Pm2

Kit zoom. Moderate tele zoom.

Will work well for me!

Could someone please post some pictures with their 207 or 307 on them? I would like a size comparison before I buy and I don't have a retailer close to check out. Thanks!

Isn't the main idea of the camera bag about what contents you need to carry in it rather than how it looks on you when worn?

The reason for the need of the pics of someone wearing their 207/307 is to get an idea of how big the bags are compared to a person not how good it looks on them.
