It has been close to six months since I upgraded and started packing my vlogging gear into a professional camera bag so I thought I’d check in and share a review of my Billingham Hadley One. Billingham is a UK brand I found while testing out potential new cameras downtown in Kuala Lumpur in the Leica store. Turns out that it’s a popular gear bag for Leica users and for good reason! It fits my Mac, Leica V-Lux, RODE mic, selfie gear, MacBook, accessories, externals, and loads more in perfect style.

They do sell Billingham here in Malaysia at the Leica shops and at YL Camera but they didn’t have the black-on-black colour combination in stock at the time so I ended up ordering direct from Billingham. They ship out quickly and it’s an easy website to navigate.
Billingham Hadley One Features
- Perfectly fits a 13″ laptop in a dedicated (and super padded) compartment.
- They offer half length and full height removable dividers for CSC kit or a mid-sized DSLR. They also have 1/2 and full inserts that I use intermittently depending on my trip (see the video for both).
- Fully adjustable and removable shoulder sling, with a leather padded add-in that I ordered that makes this bag perfect!
- Luggage Trolley strap retainer.
- Twin dump pockets on the front.
- Available in 3 colours, mine is black on black with a green interior.
