Billingham 5 Series Rear Zipper

Billingham 555 Camera Bag

The no-nonsense approach of the 5 Series is popular with busy photographers who like the fact that they can get to all their gear quickly and safely thanks to our TukTop feature. This allows the two sides of the zipped opening to be tucked behind the bag’s internal front and rear dividers.

You’ll find nine good sized main pockets in all two at the front under the flap , two in the inside zipped front compartment  , four internal slip pockets in the main compartment   and a full length zipped rear pocket .

When you look at the detail design of the 5 Series, you’ll notice the way the Quick Release System has been adapted so that the top grain leather straps pass through solid brass ‘D’ rings at the end of the webbing carry handles. We’ve done it this way to provide fast, secure closure even when the bag is heavily loaded. An embossed leather grab handle holds them both together.

Behind the main flap you will find the secondary flap which protects the two full depth front pockets. By their side is a handy pen pocket and behind them there is the full width double zipped pocket   and of course, the main zipped compartment with the TukTop feature. At the back, a full width zipped pocket   is ideal for manuals or documents.

Thanks to a third, internal web carry handle  , moving a 5 Series around safely even with the main flap open is no problem. You will find this feature very useful when changing lenses, or don’t need to be continually opening and closing your bag. All 5 Series bags are fitted with an adjustable ‘Y’ shaped Delta sling, designed to help prevent rocking, even when the bag is full.

For times when you need extra space, optional Delta Pockets can be fitted to the base of the sling. If you like to carry your bag on your back we’ve fitted 5 point mounting loops for the optional Back Pack Harness (currently out of production), these can also be used with our tripod straps. Finally to protect the underside, brass feet are fitted to top grain leather corner patches, while internally the bottom of the bag features a padded, waterproofed base.

A Billingham bag is unlike any other

A Billingham isn’t about nostalgia or tradition and it is much more than just a desirable object. It is about wanting and expecting the best protection for your camera and equipment, giving you comfort and peace of mind. Billinghams are unlike any other bags and the way they are designed and made is key to their unique character. We have already highlighted how important quality and detail are to us, so it will come as no surprise for you to learn that there are typically more than one hundred individual components in a Billingham bag – the majority of which are custom-made by us or for us. Where did this all start? In England where we make all our bags. When did it start? 1973. A long history but we never stop innovating to create the best camera bags and photographic rucksacks for you.


Who made your Billingham?

Each Billingham bag is unique and hand-made by highly trained craftsmen and women. Inside each Billingham will be a unique identifier to let you know whose handiwork lovingly stitched your bag.
