Rugged, weather-resistant yet extremely compact and light, the Hadley Small Pro is perfect for travelling, or for carrying smaller equipment on location shoots or daily photographic work.
Following feedback from Billingham customers, the bag has been enhanced with a number of new features. A strong, padded, leather-reinforced handle has been added to the top cover to provide extra comfort and a secure grip. The adjustable, shuttle woven polyester shoulder strap is now detachable, transforming the Hadley Small Pro into a stylish, compact messenger bag when removed, ideal for photographers wishing to use it as carry-on luggage.
A handy rear pocket, featuring a weather-proof zip for protection against adverse conditions, allows owners to stow important documents such as passports or tickets for quick and easy access when on the move. A durable rear luggage strap enables the bag to be conveniently retained on a trolley suitcase handle for fuss-free transportation.
The Hadley Small Pro’s premium quality fittings and buckles have been manufactured from solid brass, while the trims and straps are made from the finest full-grain leather. Each bag has been carefully finished and numbered by an individual Billingham team member and carries a unique serial code, and the signature Billingham logo has been embossed into leather on the front main flap.
Its sculpted top cover protects the contents from the elements, while inside the bag, a generously padded full-sized insert delivers excellent impact protection for valuable equipment, which can be unclipped and removed if required, to convert the Hadley Small Pro to a work bag, compact travel holdall or day bag for personal belongings.
For additional flexibility, within the insert are two removable, repositionable padded vertical dividers that run the height of the bag, plus two smaller dividers for stacking lenses. The top of the insert features a padded flap, further safeguarding possessions from rain, and delivering added protection in the event of a fall or knock.
Two spacious, expanding front pockets provide extra capacity for storing lenses or accessories, and incorporate studs that can be unfastened or closed for increased versatility. The leather front straps with Quick Release System ensure fast and discreet access to the equipment inside the bag, and can be effortlessly opened or secured with one hand. Two high quality brass buckles allow the photographer to adjust the leather straps to fit snugly around the front pockets and their contents.
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.
