The 335 is unmistakably Billingham - classic, well thought-through design and hand crafted quality make this a bag of distinction. Its a mid-sized camera bag for those who have sizable but not huge gear.
Designed with a no-nonsense approach the 335 (and the other 5-series bags) are popular with busy photographers who like the fact that they can get to all their gear quickly and safely thanks to the TukTop feature. This allows the two sides of the zippered 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 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 keeps the hand straps together and makes it much more comfortable to carry.
Behind the main flap you will find a secondary flap which protects the two full-depth front pockets. Behind them there is the full width double-zipped pocket and of course, the main zipped compartment with it's TukTop feature. At the back, a full-width zipped pocket is ideal for manuals, maps 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.
Like all 5 Series bags the 335 is 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 (not currently in production) – they 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.
What is FibreNyte?
Many Billingham bags find themselves in some of the world’s most inhospitable places and on the receiving end of some very rough treatment. For instance, they have had a report of one of our canvas bags being accidentally dragged behind a 4x4 over rough terrain for some distance. The bag and equipment survived. Another customer told them that his Billingham had been covered in melting roofing tar in a house fire - again the bag, camera and lenses ‘lived to tell the tale.’
Despite this, Billingham decided they needed to offer an even more hard-wearing material for extreme conditions. After a long search they came upon FibreNyte - a man-made, high performance fabric which is bonded to a polyester lining with Billingham StormBlock whose useful characteristics include its excellent abrasion resistance and colour-fastness.
