got a 2nd hand hadley pro today, not bad, can fit my

1. nikon D50
2. nikkor 18-200mm
3. sigma 10-20mm
4. tamron 90mm macro
5. nikkor 50mm f/1.8

but didn't have a shoulder pad yet. is there any better pads than billingham sp15 (1.5" wide) pad? will be willing to spend more on that.

and for the internal padding flaps, what's gd other than billingham's ones? i think their flaps are sold at a crazy price, so won't be getting them... would consider cheap alternatives.....

for hadley pro i think its better to buy original flap as the fitting inside is not as wide as the other series . Maybe those lowepro lens case might fit in that one i dont know .

I am also looking for a hadley pro ... very classy bag

:) welcome to the world of Billy bags!:thumbsup:

amazed that ur hadley pro can squeeze in so many stuff! for ur info, the hadley pro comes with the SP15. it fits snugly and i'd advise against 3rd parties.

for a start, insist on original inserts and flaps.
i tried 3rd party inserts before, namely Crumpler. but i sold it and went back to Billy's mainly due to the size of the insert being not that matching and fitting.

3rd part flaps are okaaaaaaay! but i sold my off in the end and reverted back to Billy's becos they look much better and fits way better.

perhaps u might be able to find a suitable flap and insert from Crumpler or some other brands like lowepro.


Billy bags comes with lifetime warranty.

yes, ur billy bags, if purchased from the right sources, comes with a warranty/guarantee card. i've mailed mine long ago.:)

i've yet to wash my bags... and i've yet to experience cracked leather. u can email them(address obtainable from their webby). they will reply to u within a week.:thumbsup:

will be getting the shoulder pad cos the weight can be a pain. but i think i have enough padding for soft trauma, just wanted to ensure better compartmentalization so would be slowly looking for it. so far cathay's the best place to look for the lowepro flaps?

Wat games does K13 play?
Personally I felt that the young boss is very how-lian lo...he will see wat equipment you use and will ignore you if your equipment is low-end ones.

email the ppl at billingham.

i did so before and they replied immediately. they even directed me to the direct supplier. but sad to say, i lost the contact.

as a consumer, i'd advise u to try ur best and not to get from K13 LESS they gif u very good pricing which IMHO, is akin to Singapore qualifying for 2010 World Cup.
