The Hadley Large is based on the original Hadley - just a little taller and slightly wider. It lacks rear zip pocket or the handle of the Hadley Pro but its extra height provides that bit of extra space for lenses or documents whilst still staying very slim and close to the body.
Like all Billingham bags it is made from three layer fabric - a canvas or Fibrenyte front, a butyl rubber lining that is impermeable to water and a final layer of fabric on the inside to add strength and improve drape and durability. Like all Billingham products, the Hadley Large isn't just beautifully made, it is designed to protect your equipment and keep on doing it for years.
Along with the other Hadleys it features the Quick Release System to which we have added solid brass buckles . Why both? Simple, the QRS allows you to open and close the bag quickly and securely and the buckles allow you to fine tune the ‘fit’ of the front pockets . For instance, if you have really packed in some bulky gear into one front pocket, you can just let out that side’s buckle to suit. In common with the rest of the range the Hadley Large features a padded inner lid over the main compartment to help keep out rain or snow and a sculpted main flap which protect the bags’ contents from adverse weather conditions.
Also like the other Hadleys (except the Digital which has a single central fastener) the Hadley Large has a secondary stud fitted to both frontpockets’ top outer corner which can be used to increase or reduce its capacity when closed it forms a perfect place to clip pens, pencils, etc.
Like every Hadley (apart from the Digital) the Large features a removable padded bucket insert with adjustable partitions and an integral flap, held in position with Velcro® touch fastener strips. If you want to stack your kit, you can use more dividers. The whole insert can be detached by a single press stud, to transform the Hadley Large from a camera bag into an understated, stylish travel or work bag.
Finally like all Billingham camera bags it is made in England and comes with our 5 year manufacturers guarantee.
