Within the interior of this compact bag, the padding that makes up the front, rear and side walls of its body is constructed from two overlapping layers of closed cell foam cut in different patterns – keeping all edges and corners fully protected. Further padding has been sewn into the bottom of the bag, and we have also included a removable padded base. Beneath the outer lid is a top flap, once again made of foam, protecting the camera on all six sides in the event of a knock or fall.
Resistant to the elements and more
With an outer body constructed of either Billingham 3 layer canvas or FibreNyte, the Billingham 72 offers the ultimate in water resistance and provides full defense against inclement weather conditions. Both materials are hard-wearing yet lightweight and never require reproofing, remaining moisture- and heat-resistant for their entire life. FibreNyte is an extra-rugged material that is more colour-fast and delivers even better protection against wear and tear.
Billingham's Quick Release System
The bag’s Quick Release System comprises a strong leather tab and brass ClogBall, enabling fast opening with one hand to retrieve the camera, while securing the equipment in transit. Each model is reinforced with the finest top-grain leather, and all fittings are made from solid brass.
The shoulder sling is extra strong and made of shuttle-woven spun polyester. It can be adjusted for length or removed completely – making it ideal to carry as a shoulder bag itself, or as a storage case inside another bag whilst travelling, such as our Weekender bag. On the rear of the bag we have also included a wide belt loop for those who prefer to keep their camera a little closer.
Built for a lifetime
As with all Billingham bags, the 72 is manufactured with extreme precision, meeting meticulous technical standards. Once it has passed Billingham’s strict quality controls, each bag is adorned with a laser-engraved woven label containing an individual 10-digit barcoded serial number as part of the company’s Unique Identifier (UI) system, allowing the bag to be registered, identified and tracked throughout its life.
At 150 x 130 x 190mm (WxDxH), the Billingham 72 is the ideal size for premium fixed lens cameras such as the Leica Q, Fujifilm X100 range or Sony DSC-RX1R series, as well as many small mirrorless system cameras with one small standard lens, such as the Fujifilm X-T2, Olympus OMD E-M series, Leica M rangefinders or Canon EOS M kits.The 72 is also the perfect companion for similar sized 35mm SLR's - and even a few 120 medium format TLR film cameras. A small pocket on the front also provides storage for a spare battery, lens cap or memory cards.
