Improved carrying comfort
The top handle on the Hadley Pro features fibreglass reinforcement to minimise stress on the bag as you lift it. On the Hadley Pro 2020 Billingham have kept this and added leather to underside of the handle to make carrying the bag more comfortable. They have also upgraded the shoulder sling - made from rugged shuttle woven spun polyester – to be fully removable. The sling can be used ‘on the shoulder’ or across the body for security, and its length can be adjusted to fit.
Luggage trolley retainer strap
On the back of the bag Billingham have added a much requested feature - a luggage trolley retainer strap to aid while travelling. Additionally the zipped pocket on the reverse of the bag now features an upgraded weather-proof zipper compared to the Hadley Pro - making it even better for storing passports, travel documents and maps.
The Hadley remains a classic
As well as these upgrades, Hadley Pro 2020 retains all the qualities that made the 'Hadley Pro' a classic. Adaptable to each photographer’s needs, the Hadley Pro 2020 comes with a removable padded insert (with a padded lid) made from fabric-covered foam that protects the contents within on all six sides. By removing this insert, the Hadley Pro 2020 can be transformed into a casual messenger bag in seconds. The padded insert is exactly the same size as the one in the existing Hadley Pro.
Stylish, yet discrete
Just like the iconic Hadley Pro, the bag's strongest feature is probably that it doesn't look like a camera bag - allowing you to travel discretely in urban and rural areas alike. Of course, like all Billingham camera bags, it is made in England and backed by Billingham's 5 year manufacturers guarantee.
The bag easily fits most DSLRs (without a battery grip) or almost any mirrorless camera – and 2-3 small to medium sized lenses with accessories. There is the height inside to hold most Canon or Nikon 70-200mm lenses vertically if you don't store them attached to the camera. Expandable when required, the capacity of the Hadley Pro 2020 can be increased and customised with the addition of optional Billingham AVEA 7 or AVEA 8 pockets (sold separately), which fasten securely to the leather side panels to protect crucial accessories.
