It struck me that the Billinghams are bags with chambers that can all be used simultaneously, which is part of the give that enable them to be accessed so easily. Other bags we know of have pockets that become unusable if other parts of the bag get filled up.

My Hadley Pro, for instance, can carry a full load in the central chamber, yet at the same time, the two front pockets can also carry a full load and you can get into either chamber at any time.

Really enjoying the look of these bags.... Am thinking of one, but not sure about the Hadley pro or he Hadley small..... My kit is small - 6d, 24-70 v1, a 430exii, and perhaps a 50/1.4 down the line.... Will the small fit everything without being overstuffed? I currently have a crumpler 6mdh that fits everything but is a pain to carry everywhere so it's used more as storage

Price wise, the small and the pro Are only about $25 apart, but I'm more concerned with the comfort, portability, and the look (I'm 5'7")

Get the pro. I have both my wife uses the small I use the pro. Im not a giant but the pro is not as big as you would think. You can see it on me in the pictures on the previous page (https://photography-on-the.net …p=16796659&post​count=1350). Im 6' 225. My wife is about 5'7".
Not sure if the 6d would fit mounted with a 24-70 into the Small either.

I've had the Pro and the Small for over a year. Just sold the Small recently in favor of the Pro. For your gear, I'd go Pro. There's a difference between being able to fit things in a bag and being able to access things in a bag.

I believe in the access versus fit as well. But sometimes I think the Hadley Pro is taller than it needs to be for smaller lenses and cameras. But on the other hand, the tallness helps it to carry my Macbook Air 11 or someone's large tablet. The workaround in that case is to put inconsequentials in the lower lens compartments, keeping the upper ones active for lens swaps.

thanks all for the responses

i will have to go to B&H or Adorama to try both out. might go with the small to use for city outings, rather than storing everything

The small is very small for the small cost difference I would recommend the pro. I just put my 6D in the small with the 24-70 there isn't room for much else. Plus depending how your built a small looks like a man purse on me rather then a small messenger.

Yeah im 6' 225 so I have some width. I would try it on for yourself. I found the Pro to be a good size. Only thing it does not fit that I want it to is a 70-200 MK II mounted... So If I pick up the lens Im not going to be able to keep it mounted on the camera.

the large pro would likely be too big for sure

i saw the olive HP but was looking to get the black/black one... here's hoping its a temporary supply restraint or something
