Billingham Hadley Large Pro

In stock

title: Navy Canvas / Chocolate Leather

Pickup currently unavailable at Camera West Rancho Mirage

Larger in all dimensions than the Billingham ‘Hadley Large’ camera bag, with additional features such as a 16” dedicated laptop slip and rear pocket. Can carry 2 DSLRs with medium-to-long lenses (such as 70-200mm lens) attached plus an extra spare lens or be used as a great overnight bag. Made in England with 3-layer waterproof fabric and real leather.



The padded laptop compartment is big enough for a 15" or 16" MacBook Pro, making this bag a strong contender for many photographers.



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.



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.



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.



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.



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.



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.


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.​



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.



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.



The Hadley Large Pro (bottom) has additional features in comparison to the Hadley Large (top):​ ​

  • Top handle
  • Ability to attach AVEA pockets
  • Rear pocket on the back of the bag
  • Laptop compartment
  • Wider shoulder sling (50mm compared to 38mm)​
  • Larger in all dimensions – especially length (left-to-right) and depth (front-to-back)

Please note that the Hadley Large is designed to allow stacking of lenses – the Hadley Large Pro is not.​

Please note, all returned items must be in the condition in which they were shipped. If the items are returned in a different condition, we will not be able to accept them.

We highly recommend visiting us in person to experience our fine photographic tools before deciding which tool best fits your needs. Please note that our inventory is distributed among our three stores, and what you see online may be at any of these locations. Below are a few points that we’d like to make in order to meet your needs for in store pick up.

The location of each item is indicated online. For convenience, you can choose to pick up your item at any of our stores. Once purchased, the item should be ready for pick up within 4 hours at the designated store, although this might vary depending on the store's busyness and time of day. We request that you wait for a notification from us confirming that your order is ready for pick up, to ensure the best service.

If your chosen item is not available at your preferred store, we can transfer it there after purchase.

We offer a concierge trade-in program for the gear you'd like to upgrade, cross-grade, or simply pass on to a new owner. This enables you to acquire the tools that fit your specific needs. The easiest way to trade is to bring your gear into one of our stores and meet with us in person. However, we also accommodate those who can't visit our stores. Our online process is both personal and simple.

To begin, fill out the form on our Trade // Sell page with the details of the fine photographic equipment or watches you'd like to trade in. One of our team members will then contact you to confirm any details we might need for an accurate estimate. We will provide an estimate that doesn’t only look at the value of your trade in but the whole picture of where you want to go. If the estimate is satisfactory to you, we can provide a shipping label for you to ship your gear to one of our stores for a final inspection and store credit. Finally, we apply that credit towards your new gear!
