Billingham Hadley Pro Bag – Black Canvas Tan Leather
Billingham Hadley Pro Camera Bag
Like all other Hadleys (except the Hadley Digital) the Pro comes with a removable padded insert (including a lid) made with fabric covered foam that protects your gear from all sides. Remove this insert and you can turn the Hadley Pro into a stylish messenger bag. The main flap is sculpted around the opening to prevent rain, snow or unwanted fingers getting into the bag – perfect for street photography. Of course the rain protection doesn’t stop there – like all Billingham bags it is made from a three layer fabric with a core of butyl rubber that is impermeable to water.
The bag easily fits most DSLRs (without a battery grip) or almost any mirrorless camera – and a couple of small to medium sized lenses with accessories. The capacity of the bag can be increased with our optional Avea pockets that attach to the leather side panels.
For ease of access the Pro features the Quick Release System (QRS) to which we have added solid brass buckles. Why both? Simple, the QRS allows you to open and close the bag quickly and securely. The buckles allow you to tailor the ‘fit’ of the front pockets to suit your needs.
Inside the padded insert we have supplied 4 removable foam dividers to keep your gear organised – two vertical dividers and two small flappy dividers, perfect for stacking lenses. Additionally, on the back of the bag is a discrete zipped compartment – perfect for storing airline tickets or maps.
Don’t forget that because it’s a Billingham camera bag it is made in England and comes with a 5 year manufacturers guarantee.
Billingham Hadley Series
Whatever gear you need to carry, the chances are that one of the Hadleys will fit the bill. The range runs from the compact, Hadley Digital to the spacious and aptly named Hadley Large Pro.
Billingham Hadley Pro Size & Specification
From the clean and elegant lines, to the hand finished leather and brass detail – it is easy to see why the Hadley Pro is our most popular photographic bag.
Sitting in the middle of the Hadley range in terms of size it is certainly at the pinnacle in terms of features. For example the Hadley Pro features a carry handle on top (as well as a shoulder strap) which is reinforced with fibreglass to minimise stress on the bag as you lift it. Just a small example of the thought and engineering put into the bag.

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.
