From the clean and elegant lines, to the hand finished leather and brass detail - it is easy to see why the Hadley Pro is Billingham's 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, 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 is just a small example of the thought and engineering put into the bag.
Removable padded insert
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.
Whatever the weather
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.
Perfect for DSLR & mirrorless users
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.
Quick access to your gear
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.
Complete with customisable dividers
Inside the padded insert Billingham 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.
