The S4 is the largest bag in the S-Series range - although not huge it has ample room for a moderate amount of equipment - for example you could carry a mirrorless camera, a mid-sized DSLR and still have room for a couple of small to medium lenses. We even include two removable, repositionable soft padded Velcro® dividers for you to separate your gear.
Of course it also includes the other features common to the S-Series like quick release Clogball fastenings for the top grain leather straps that allow you to open the main covering flap with just one hand, two zippers on the zip to the main compartment to let you open from either end or the full length front dump pocket for a phone or rolled up magazine. Like every Billingham each feature is designed to fit round your daily life, so you don’t have to fit round the bag.
And this thinking extends further into the design, the TukTop feature means that both sides of the main zipper can be tucked behind the bag's internal front and rear dividers, allowing you to pull equipment in and out of the bag easily while shooting. Those internal padded dividers also create two thin pockets inside the main compartment, suitable for a travel guide or camera batteries - and don’t forget the long but discrete zippered pocket on the back of the bag ideal for passports, memory cards etc.
Of course like all Billingham camera bags it is made with 3 layer waterproof fabric to protect your possessions during a downpour and to protect from bumps and knocks the main compartment is padded on all four sides and has a removable 25mm, fabric covered, deep foam base.
The S4 is one of the newest bags in our range, but should you purchase it we think you'll see why we are so proud of the S-Series.
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.
