Thread: Are there any camera bags in the same league as billinghams in term of sleekness?

  1. #1

    Default Are there any camera bags in the same league as billinghams in term of sleekness?

    I like kata design for 123 go and all, but i dont think its suitable as a day bag. Any suggestions for a cool looking camera bag but can be also used like a day bag?

    I own a billingham hadleypro but looking for a nice bag pack as well

    Thanks for any and all feedback.

    From what i could research i think kata backpack is the most suitable for people who go for comfortable and design.

    I never liked crumpler camera back packs. They have weird names and make ppl look like ninja turtle if you know what i mean.

    It's hard to make backpacks look as nice as Bilinghams; they would tend to look blocky.

    Kata and Think Tank tend to look a bit better. Crumplers are way too overcushioned, ditto for Lowepro.

    Oh yes, Nat Geo is quite pretty as well, though not weather resistant without a cover.

    Well, I don't own a crumpler backpack but some people likes it as it doesn't looks like a camera backpack. Own a Kata 3N1-30 and very comfortable but it's a bit stiff as it's fully cushioned, size is just nice for a guy. Another alternative is to get a backpack and padded insert so you can use the backpack to hold your camera equipments but I think this idea is suits better for sling bag.

    Wow these bags are exotic man! Nice but i prefer the classiness of billingham. I love my hadley pro! but i wanna pair it with a equally sleek back pack. Unfortunately the bags you showed are mostly slingbags..

    try sling-0-matic from think tank
    http://www.thinktankphoto.com/produc...-matic-10.aspx

    although it's a sling bag, but it 'performs' like a backpacks. able to quick access without taking down the sling and it's quite stylish too.
