Removable Padded Insert
The flexible padded insert is made from dense, fabric-covered, ‘closed cell’ foam and provides impact protection on all sides, including the lid. 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 and 2x horizontal flap dividers are included and can be attached anywhere inside with Velcro®.
The padded insert can also be removed to turn the bag from a camera bag to a casual messenger bag in seconds.
Front Dump Pockets
The front dump pockets are perfect for cables, film, spare batteries, and those little bits and bobs you want to keep separate, whilst providing great extra storage space.
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.
Rear Zipped Pocket and Adjustable Shoulder Sling
The rear of the bag has a zipped pocket and is ideal for slim papers such as maps etc. The zip is protected by a flap made out of the same 3-layer waterproof fabric as the bag.
Adjustable Shoulder Sling
The shoulder sling is made of strong woven polyester and is adjustable in length to suit your height and shooting style.
The sling is compatible with the SP15 and SP40 (recommended) shoulder pads – not included.
"Quick Release System": Front Straps
The stitched, top-grain leather front straps have the ‘Quick Release System' feature. Simply slide the straps up and off the brass ‘clogballs’ at the top for quick and easy access.
Once the leather softens and you become used to it is likely that you’ll be able to open the bag one-handed while wearing it.
The buckles allow you to fine-tune the ‘fit’ of the front pockets. You do not need to use the buckles to open the bag.
An easy carry top handle is reinforced with fiberglass, allowing you to pick up and carry the bag without using the shoulder sling.
The reinforcement has the extra benefit that it stops the bag from bunching as you pick it up.
Add Avea End Pockets
Increase storage by attaching any one of our optional AVEA End Pockets to the side patches.
Sculpted Top Flap
The sculpted top flap helps prevent rain, snow, or unwanted fingers from getting into the main compartment. It is made of the same 3-layer waterproof fabric as the rest of the bag.
Discreet and Slim
The discrete styling of the Hadley Pro means that it doesn’t look like a camera bag, which is ideal for traveling without drawing attention.
The bag is naturally flexible and molds to the body of the wearer. Its slim body makes it a great bag to weave through crowds with.
Hadley Pro vs Hadley Pro 2020
The Hadley Pro and Hadley Pro 2020 have the exact same internal padded insert and can therefore carry the same amount of equipment.
The difference between the two camera bags is that the Hadley Pro 2020 has the following upgraded features:
- Removable shoulder sling
- Luggage trolley strap on the back
- Leather underneath the top handle for added comfort when carrying
- Improved weatherproof zip on the rear document zip pocket
- Unstitched front straps
There are minimal external dimension differences due to the different shoulder sling fixings on the Hadley Pro 2020.
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!
