No Billingham is a blend to the body type bag. 07 series the least of it. Hadley does not. I have found that body conscious bags will snag your gear either on entering, exiting or both due to the innards that collapse in order that the exterior accommodate the wearers physical shape.

I guess you are right regarding the blending thing.

My TT Retro 7 will kind of "collapse" to the body. Which is both a good and a bad thing. It is easy to carry, but moving stuff in/out can at times be a little tight. That said, I think the Billingham 307L would fit my expectations in most cases of use. That being a travel bag that will carry both gear and personal items while it secures them with the option to zip it as well as keeping the bag open. Maybe a little on the big side for all day use, but at least I think it will do well for travelling.

Any of you that own the 307 / 307L care to share some thoughts on carrying this bag?

Yeah Mine is on its way today. Will make a choice to keep the Hadley Pro Black or the LHP in sage and chocolate. ?Wish it had some way to attach a tripod.

They are the same bag, except for the colors (the "small" in one of the descriptions doesn't mean anything here).

Personally ... I like (and have) the sage/tan version ... and also the black/black one.

Black does show lint and pet hair easily (like a magnet!). I don't like beige or sand because it shows dirt and stains easily. Sage seems like a good compromise, and I like green!

Pick which ever you like ... and enjoy one of the best bags available!
