I have the most beaten up billingham 335 bag in the world, boy is it ugly, anyay its missing a strap fastener and looks like its been used as a hocky puck, so do, I retire it or keep using it? I know I will not get rid of it, too many memories, anyway if anything I could always use it as a storage bag for my kit. Today I took the plunge and ordered a Domke F5 CX, not sure if it will last as long as the Billingham has, but hey I doubt I have another 30 years left in me anyway just wondring what bags are in use by forum members

Billingham Hadley Pro, plus any backup cases for extra items. But we like to travel fairly light.
Best regards, John

Think Tank Mirrorless Mover 30, Think Tank Urban Disguise, Think Tank Digital Holster 40 v2.0, Billingham Hadley Large in all Black, Billinghsm digital holster, because it was free, Kata 3 in 1 something or other, and an old battered Domke bag from my film days which I still use today.

Now before you say anything, yes both your good selfs and my wife both know I have to many bags and I have sold a couple on here In the last few months to keep the household a happy one, but I still do not think I have found the perfect bag to be in the position of just owning one.

I toyed with getting the Hadley but got a good deal on the Domke, I really like Billingham, I just hope the Domke is well built too

I generally (daily) use a deuter race lightweight cycling backpack, and when I put a dSLR in it i generally stuff a LowePro camera holster in first, or (if I need more space) just wrap the camera up in a scarf or something. When I set out on a proper camera 'expedition' and carry more stuff, I have a LowePro - think it is a Primus 200AW (or something like that) - very nice bag and comfy to wear, and can get a ton of kit in it...

I'd ask Billingham to repair it or find a local saddler.
My 20 odd year ol Billingham looks almost as good as new

Depends on cirucmstances: a LOWEPRO Classified Sling 220AW when transporting lots of gear and needing good protection, Kata 3n1 20 sling/backpack for hiking or travel abroad, Pentax K bag for walkabout (my favourite), and always a Pentax neoprene camera case.

Desperately looking for Pentax Limited Lens Case 2 (carries all 5 DA limiteds) but so far I have only seen it at B & H stateside.

Tamrac Expedition 7X - The bag I use most
Tamrac Expedition 7X - Holds all my Macro kit
Lowepro Fastpack 350 - For when I don't need a bag as big as those above
Lowepro Vertex 100AW - Used for storage
Lowepro Slingshot 200AW - Now unused as I don't like the weight all on one shoulder
Lowepro S&F Reporter 300AW - Holds all my Lee filters
Lowepro Stealth Reporter 500AW - Holds all my flashes and radio triggers etc
Lowepro Nova 1 AW - When travelling very light like on a city break. Holds 1 x body spare battery + DA 12-24mm or DA* 16-50mm. No room for anything else.

Hama Katoomba 190RL sling type bag which I've just bought, it takes the K3 with 300DA* crossways with loads of room for everything else.
RedSnapper Duo shoulder bag, nice but not big enough for those long lenses.
Canvas half rucksack half camera bag, no name Chinese thing which I take to work with me.
