The padded laptop compartment is big enough for a 15" or 16" MacBook Pro, making this bag a strong contender for many photographers.
REMOVABLE PADDED INSERT
The flexible Padded Insert gives your equipment protection on all sides. Like the bag itself it is flexible front-to-back to allow it to fit slightly bigger gear than its dimensions suggest.
2x vertical dividers are included and attach inside with Velcro®. They can be repositioned inside by attaching to the Velcro® strips sewn into the front and back of the insert.
The padded insert can be removed to turn the bag from a camera bag to a casual messenger bag in seconds. Without the padded insert it makes a great overnight bag.
GREAT FOR LARGER DSLRS
The two vertical dividers are made of multiple panels to bend around and 'hug' your camera.
Like the 'Hadley Large' the extra height compared to the other Hadley's allows you to attach longer lenses to cameras – such as 70-200mm lenses to a Canon or Nikon DSLR.
BACK ZIP POCKET
The flat back pocket allows for A4 or 'US Legal' size documents to be stored. A fabric flap made of the same 3-layer waterproof fabric as the rest of the bag protects the zip from the elements.
LARGE FRONT POCKETS
The very spacious front dump pockets are perfect for cables, film, spare batteries , lens wipes and those little bits and bobs you want to keep separate.
On the top-outside corner of each pocket is a pop-clip. Release this to expand the space available. Keep it closed to form a perfect place to clip pens, pencils etc.
LEATHER GRAB HANDLE
The leather handle with a press stud close is the ideal solution for added comfort when carrying a heavy load.
You don't need to undo this top-handle to get into the bag.
BUCKLE FRONT STRAPS
The Hadley Large Pro does not feature Billingham's 'Quick Release System' straps due to the size and weight of the equipment that is usually put into this camera bag. Instead, the leather front straps have classic buckles to keep your equipment safely and securely stored.
SCULPTED TOP FLAP
The sculpted top flap helps prevent rain, snow or unwanted fingers getting into the main compartment. It is made of the same 3-layer waterproof fabric as the rest of the bag.
ADJUSTABLE SHOULDER SLING
The shoulder sling is made of strong woven webbing. It is adjustable in length to suit your height and shooting style.
The sling is compatible with the SP20 and SP50 (recommended) shoulder pads – not included.
ADD OPTIONAL AVEA END POCKETS
Large and strong real leather side patches distribute weight and allow for the ability to add any size AVEA End Pockets for extra storage.
The design of the side panels means you can fit End Pockets to sit low or high depending on your preference.
Please note: only two end pockets will fit at once, one on each end.
