    When I use a Billingham bag for my X100T, I have the Digital and some times the Hadley small. They both work extremely well, notwithstanding the fact that Billingham bags are totally weatherproof

    I've been looking the Hadley small to carry an X100F and Minolta X-G1. I think it would be the ideal size to carry a couple rolls of film, batteries, etc.

    The Hadley Small is actually quite big. I can fit an XPro2, 5 lenses, a charger and various filters and cleaning cloths. The Digital is the next step down.

    That's really good to know, actually. I'm tired of lugging backpacks around and thought it looked like a good size. I'm planning on carrying X100F, Lee filter kit, L bracket, cable release, batteries. Then a Minolta XG-1 with a couple rolls of film.

    Bags are really tough. The ones that fit all my criteria are ugly as crap, or they scream 'camera.' The ones I like are expensive and typically too large. I currently use a Jansport backpack from college with an insert. Though I am used to carrying a 6d, 35mm, 135mm and EOS film body.

    Anyone have a opinion on the size difference between the Peak Design Everyday Sling 10L and the Billingham Hadley Pro?

    The Peak Design's dimensions are a bit different at 16"X9"X5.5" while the Billingham comes in at 13.8"X11"X4.8". So size wise they're close with the Peak coming in a bit larger.

    If it were me I would choose what style/fabric you prefer best. I've seen and felt both bags. I just loath the style and fabric of the Peak Design but that's just me. Others can't stand the Billingham style. I chose Billingham. What will you choose? :)

    Thanks! Since they don't sell Billingham in Norway, I tried to find one second hand. But didn't find any. So I bought the Peak Design bag. Whats most important for me is that its weather proof and can fit a iPad Pro 12.9. Just after I bought the Peak a used black Billingham Hadley pro turned up. And as far as I can figure the Billingham is totally weather proof. While the Peak is weather resistant and won't take as much rain. I'm relatively happy with the Peak. But the iPad Pro is a bit high. So the zipper is a bit "stretched" . So I'm worried that the weather sealing takes a knock because of this. A Billingham Hadley Pro should take a 13" laptop, så a iPad Pro should be fine. Ahhh .... decisions decisions .... :-O

    What I don't get is this: If I understand you correctly the Billingham is not as long as the Peak. The iPad just fits on the width. Can't understand how a 13" will fit then?

    I have a 4 year old used one on hand. But I'm a bit uncertain since it has a beginning tear in the bottom corner. Will this affect the weather proofing?

    My problem is that my eyes still work, so I could never buy a Peak Design bag..... Hahah . . (!!!)
    Seriously though, 99/100 camera bags are hideous.

    Looks nice, but too big for my needs. What brand is it?

    If anyone is interested, I have a new Billingham 72 (Sage and Chocolate) in the classifieds. I love the bag but going to stick with my Hadley Pro for everyday carry.
