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.
Like all other Hadleys (except the Hadley Digital) the Pro comes with a removable padded ‘bucket’ 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.
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.
