Press Top Feature
The ‘7 series’ (107, 207, 307 & 307L camera bags) have a distinctive rectangular opening feature, comprising of two specially shaped fiberglass and aluminum wands that hold the zipped, main compartment open. This is known as the ‘Billingham Press Top’ feature and is a similar style to a doctor's Gladstone bag.
The hinge between the wands on either side is made of fabric to prevent users from experiencing a mechanical failure and provide an easy and quicker opening than a typical doctor's bag.
Extra Pockets Inside
The main compartment is padded on all 4 sides, plus the padded basepad.
Behind the front padded wall of the main compartment are two equally sized slim pockets, ideal for items such as filters and diaries.
Behind the back padded wall is a single slim compartment, big enough for a MacBook Pro 13 (4th Gen), MacBook Air (3rd Gen), iPad Pro 12.9, or Surface Pro (1-7 & X).
Please note that these pockets are only padded on one side.
The front dump pockets feature a press stud close and have ample space for batteries, cables, SD cards, lens cloths, and any other bits and pieces you wish to carry. An additional loop in the fabric on the side of the front pockets is a deliberate design feature to allow clip-on pens.
The back pocket of this bag is a generous size and great for storing easily accessible documents or notes.
The rain flap over the top is made of the same 3-layer waterproof fabric as the rest of the bag to help protect the zip from the elements.
Sculpted Top Flap
The main flap has a central, double-layered, waterproof seam which gives the bag a distinctive rounded look.
By extending over the ends of the bag, the top flap provides excellent protection from dust and weather, as well as creates a classic, sleek look.
Additional Grab Handles
With the top flap open you'll see another detail that makes all the difference, two internal leather grab handles, which means you can carry the bag safely without closing it. For extra flexibility, the front handle can even be unclipped and removed if required.
Adjustable Should Sling
The shoulder sling is made of strong woven polyester. You can adjust the length to suit your height and shooting style.
The sling is compatible with the SP20 and SP50 (recommended) shoulder pads.
The SP50 is included for added comfort.
Delta Sling And Optional Delta Pockets
Where the shoulder sling attaches to the bag it splits into an inverted ‘Y’ shape at each end. This split sling helps to prevent any tipping or rolling motion as you move.
The bottom ends of this split sling is also where optional Delta Pockets can be clipped onto, providing extra space or organization when you need it.
Note: The Delta pocket in the picture is Khaki Canvas / Tan Leather, however, all 307 bags are made of FibreNyte fabric.
QRS Front Straps
The 307 features flared ‘Quick Release System’ leather front straps. You can open them one-handed, even while wearing gloves.
The dual holes in the straps allow you to adjust the amount that the bag expands, depending on how much gear you are carrying.
Below and behind the flared front straps are two cutouts where you can thread optional 5/8 Tripod Straps through.

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. If you want to pick up an item at a different store, select that store for pick up during checkout, or choose a regular shipping method and let us know your preferred pick up store via firstname.lastname@example.org or by responding to your order confirmation email.
For any questions about in-store pick up, please email email@example.com. We'll do our best to accommodate your needs.
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!
