    Hi, as this thread is dedicated to the review of the Hadley Small and to prevent it from getting messy or OT, I will not post pictures of other bags. Besides my Pro is not in Khaki colour. You can refer to other threads on the forums by searching. There are plenty of pictures available of what you requested for. There is even a review of the Hadley Pro done by a fellow bro in this review section. Cheers!

    nice!
    tons of pics!
    seriously, better than lengthy review in words... any length in fact

    btw, going by the dimension spec,
    the depth is 2.5"?
    when put in DSLR body, the bag will be bulging right?
    does it bulge a lot? it does not bother you?
    I'm thinking how my A77+16-50kit fitting in this bag...

    I haven't had a chance to get it in the rain yet, thankfully! LOL! I'm just wondering how long the water repellent coating will last.

    It does bulge at the top but it does not bother me as the bulge is not that big. The bulge only exists on my journey to and from the location. I'll usually take out my camera upon arrival so it does not bother me. This occurs only when i have the body attached to lens in the bag. If the body is detached, you shouldn't have any issues. Since you are only carrying 1 body and 1 lens, you have more than enough space and can detach the lens to avoid the bulge. Refer to the picture below,



    Since you only carry 1 body, you can remove 1 partition and lay your camera horizontally with its base flat with the base of the bag and your lens on either side. In the picture above, i am carrying my flash so i put it vertically. Hope this answers your doubts.

    R u promoting the above 2 merchants? If not why only these 2 are mentioned. Let's keep this review neutral and focus on the bag. I hope purchase related details can be shared in other threads to keep this review clean. Thanks!

    Finally managed to test out the water resistant material today as i was caught in the rain today. The water droplets from the rain formed beads on the surface of canvas then rolled off the bag. I'm not sure how long this water repellent coating will last. The picture (taken by my iPhone 4S) below shows the little water beads on the canvas.

    First of all, thanks for sharing this.

    Billingham! Nice bag.. I wanted to grab one especially in khaki colour unfortunately it does not come with rain cover which caused me had second thoughts and ended up decided not to buy. Applying water repellent causing you buying more things (might come with it) but it's still not safe or not even 50% protected unlike certain other brands is definitely rain protected and splashproof. Also, its cover trimming in leather is always had leather cracks problem after awhile. How to maintain this portion? If you use leather cleaner and conditioner, it might affect the canvas part when applying - how? Where got time! Why pay so much, yet still not durable... I find it's only suitable for indoor or under shade photographer. Just my 2. Hehe...

    cheers
