Billingham Eventer MK II Front Straps
Please note: In-stock online does not necessarily mean in-stock at our SF store. To confirm in-store availability or to request a transfer from one of our other Camera West stores, please call (415)801-5066.
Some Billingham bags come with front straps. If you need to replace yours or just fancy a change we sell spares for many of our bags.
The Eventer MKII Front Straps are included when you purchase the Eventer MKII. They are also exactly the same as the ones supplied with the Eventer - so they fit that bag too.
Please Note: These do not fit the 'Mini Eventer' bag.
Different Leather Tolerances
If you are replacing your front straps after many years, it is likely that the leather will be a little different in color from the leather on your bag.
Firstly as a natural product, there is variation between batches - we try our best to keep the colors of our leather within a set of tolerances, but as leather is a natural product it can be very hard to keep colors consistent to match something from many years ago.
Second leather does change in color slightly over time.
Please bear the above in mind when purchasing.
Using Front Straps
Our front straps open and close using our Quick Release System. The front straps can be pulled up from the tip and go up and off the brass clog ball attached to most of our bags.
Many of our bags have buckles, but this is just for fine-tuning the capacity inside the bag. You do not need to take the front straps off the buckles every time you use them, this is only for occasional adjusting. Because of this, it should be very difficult for you to lose your front straps.
These front straps are made with the craftsmanship you'd expect from Billingham:
- Real, full-grain, vegetable-tanned leather
- 5-year manufacturers guarantee
- Made in England
All our shipments are fully insured. For shipments valued over $200, a direct signature will be required upon delivery.
We utilize various shipping carriers, with FedEx Express being our primary choice for 2-Day and Overnight shipping within the US, as well as International deliveries.
We accept returns within 14 days of delivery, subject to a restocking fee of up to 15%. This fee is not for profit, but to cover the costs associated with selling an item. Each return is evaluated individually, and we strive to minimize this fee. In many instances, we waive it entirely if the refund credit can be applied towards another item in the store.
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. 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!
