It is a retina version.
Would you recommend the Hadley Large for carrying a macbook together with camera gear? Or would something like the Ona Union Street be a better solution?

That is a tricky question ... The Union Street would be better for carrying a MacBook Pro since it has a dedicated laptop pocket which is padded on both sides ... however, IMHO the Billingham is a better bag and keeps water out of the bag in bad weather.

I have both and haven't been able to part with the Union Street as it just looks so nice ... but I use my Billinghams. ;)

MBP fits in the hadley Pro just not the best fit. Thorsten Overgaard has a picture somewhere on his site.

Interesting, the capability of carrying a MBP is important since im looking for a bag to carry my laptop to work every day and i would like to be able to bring my camera with me as well without too much hassle.

Finding a suitable bag to carry a reasonable amount of camera gear and a 15 inch laptop seems to be surprisingly hard, so far I've only found the Union Street that looks good.

If you do have the hadley large pro. Pictures of the bag would be appreciated.

I have recently picked up a Hadley Large Pro (khaki fibrenyte / chocolate). Are you looking for any pics in particular ?

Pictures of the bag with some gear it in. To see how it looks outside and inside with gear to understand the sizing.
That would be appreciated :)

I've attached a few photo's below. Hope they're helpful. Unfortunately I was pushed for time so they're all from my s5. The SP50 shoulder pad is attached but was an additonal purchase, think it only shows up in one of the pics.
It's very nicely made and I think it looks great, however it is a bit on the large side.

I keep returning to the Hadley pro more than others in my closet. It's taken on an enhanced role with my switch to mirrorless cameras. It's been serving a mixed use role for business travel along with photography. Photo gear, Macbook air, personal comfort items and personal effects, all in one water proof bag that looks the part when well-dressed. I keep a small Avea pocket on one end in which to store my spectacles when shooting.

This is EXACTLY the usage I am seeking a bag for. Hadley Pro it is...

Great choice. Hadley Pro is an exceptional bag.

The spectacle bag on the outside is a great idea.

Hope my vendor still has them!

And again, side view.

I had the bag for about a week. I couldn't get over the belt style straps. It was to cumbersome to get my camera's out of the back. I wish they would have kept the original hadley pro design just larger.

Does someone know where to get shoulder paddings for the hadley pro? I love this bag but as it has so much space the weight is sometimes cutting in my shoulders. Any advise?

davidfarina two choices.

Better for me: Domke postal pad

Prettier: Billingham sells pads for the straps. they match the bag better

Didnt realize that billingham makes them for the bag. IMO they should include one, 50$ for a shoulder pad is ridiculous! But thank you, will take a look at the domke also!
