My Hadley Digital is incredible. I am currently carrying my Sony a6000 with two lenses, and Sony RX100-2

There's room to spare

However, it's too small for everyday carry. I use a TT sling for that. Turn style 20

EDIT
Late August I broke my left shoulder in two spots.
I added a Sony 24-240 so I wouldn't need to change lenses.
Hadley Pro works well now.

Hello, billinghams owners!
I currently own an Lowepro event Messenger 150 and dont like it at all.
Im looking for a small, thin, and light travel camera bag and need help to choose my Billingham. Currently want to carry:

- Nikon D7100 + Helios 40-2 (the dimension of helios is approx. 3.23 x 3.23 x 3.9 in. /82.0 x 82.0 x 99.0mm)
- 35mm 1.8 DX

I love billingham Hadley series so…
- Billingham Hadley Pro?
- Billingham Hadley Small?

Welcome to the forum!

I have a Billingham Hadley Pro that works well with my N D300S, as long as the battery grip is not installed.

I enjoy carrying an iPad in it too

I have no experience with the other BillyBag you mentioned

The Hadley Small should be fine for this combo. Very nice bag.

The Billigham L2 (Alice) would also work for your 7100. Very different shape than the Hadley.

loving my Hadley small. I have a Leica M6 with 35mm C-Biogon, Fuji X100T, Fuji WCL-X100, TCL-X100, Sekonic light meter, 6 rolls of film in a film case. This all leaves one of the front flap pockets empty for random stuff like keys, batteries for the Fuji etc...

I wanted to see just how water resistant these bags were, and I was not disappointed. A few hours in a torrential downpour, bone dry inside.

207 Khaki with Chocolate Leather

Bought it a few weeks ago. Beautyful, sturdy looking handcraft. Looks small, however grabs a lot of stuff.

Hey guys,
I am planning to buy the Hadley Pro. The size is perfect for me, and I dont want to buy the larger models.
I will have, eventually, the following gear:
1. 5D Mark III (or IV)
2. 24-70 F/2.8 II
3. 16-35 F/2.8 II
4. 70-200 F/2.8 II

I read tons of reviews and posts, and I understand that it will probably hold all of this gear, but can it hold the 5d with the 70-200 attached? (lens hood is a non issuse).
I would really appreciate a feedback from someone who owns roughly the same gear/bag.
Thanks!

Hi,
I have a 7D and had a Sigma 70-200 f/2.8.
YOu won't be able to put this combo (attached) in the bag (nevertheless, the bag will fit the lens alone).

This is my experience with this bag and this combo.

Thank you for your answer blackjack.
I just talked with Billinigham, and they say everything should fit, but with a shorter lens attached to the camera.
Does it make sense?

You're welcome.
Sure it does. The bag fits a 7D + 24mm Art attache dwith its lenshood or the same body with a 50mm Art atttached with its lenshood.

I'm looking at bags again. I already have the Hadley Digital, and Hadley Pro.

I'm considering either a second insert for the Hadley Pro, or maybe a Hadley Small.

Billybags used to be affordable here. Thanks to Rob Skeoch. He shut down so I am appalled at Billy cost
