Billingham - 72


  • 23500


Ideal for a small camera such as a Leica M11 (with short lens), Leica Q3 or Fujifilm X100V.​ ​The slim front pocket is perfect for a passport or phone.


All the internal walls have dense foam padding, including top lid and padded base to provide the ultimate protection for your equipment.​ ​The internal divider attaches with Velcro® and is removable.


The top-grain leather front strap has the 'Quick Release System' feature. Simply slide the strap up-and-off the brass clogball at the top for quick and easy access.


The shoulder sling is made of strong, woven webbing and is adjustable in length to suit your height and shooting style.​ ​When not needed it can be removed completely.


A stitched belt loop on the back of the bag allows you to store the bag on your waist, freeing your arms up to shoot photos with ease.


The top flap has been sculpted to help prevent rain or snow getting into the main compartment. It is made of the same 3-layer waterproof fabric as the rest of the bag. ​

Yes! It fits great even with the grip attached.

Yes! It fits great even with the grip attached.

Yes, it will a Leica M as long as the lens isn't too long. You need the distance from the back of the camera to the front of the lens to be 110mm or less.

No! Its too small to fit any camera with a mirror inside. So a Canon 7D, 5D, 1DX or Nikon D810, D3, DF etcs are all an impossibility with this bag. Many larger mirrorless cameras are too big too.

Yes! As long as the lens is retracted before you put it in the bag.

No. The fabric is made of 3 layers - the middle layer is butyl rubber. Water cannot pass through this butyl rubber layer. As long as you don't get a hole in the fabric or expose it to harsh chemicals (for example in a washing machine) the fabric should remain waterproof for many years. There is no need to apply re-proofing.

In simple terms ‘Canvas’ or ‘FibreNyte’ refers to top layer of fabric on our bags – the facecloth.

‘Canvas’ is a mix of cotton and polyester. ‘FibreNyte’ refers to our face fabric that is completely synthetic. Canvas is hard wearing, FibreNyte is very hard wearing.

Both fabrics are bonded to a non-wicking polyester backing fabric with a middle layer butyl rubber – this rubber layer makes both fabrics equally (and very) waterproof. Water can’t get through that rubber layer.

Both fabrics have a similar weave - the FibreNyte looks similar to canvas. Canvas is slightly softer to the touch, FibreNyte is slightly rougher to the touch.

People tend to choose Canvas if they want the bag to age gracefully and look vintage over time. This is particularly true of people who choose our ‘Khaki Canvas’ fabric as this looks particularly lovely as it ages.

People tend to choose FibreNyte if they want the bag to look newer for longer or if they are particularly hard on their gear - for example by carrying the bag to work with them every day, doing a lot of hiking or filling it particularly full. If you are buying a black bag it’s particularly worth considering FibreNyte as it will stay looking blacker longer. Also Sage FibreNyte is particularly attractive as a colour – it’s probably the most popular colour among our staff!

The shoulder pad isn't essential but can stop the strap from digging into your shoulder if you're carrying a heavy camera inside the bag. Adding a Shoulder Pad can also reduce the chances of the bag slipping off your shoulder.

You will need to purchase the 'SP10' Shoulder Pad for the 72 and select the colour of leather that matches your bag. 

No, the padding inside the 72 is sewn into the walls of the bag and is therefore not removable. However, the padded divider that attaches inside with Velcro® is removable.

  • 72 Padded Base (Olive)

  • 72 Padded Divider (Olive) 1x Divider

  • Stowaway Shoulder Sling (Black Webbing / Black Leather / Nickel Coated Brass)
    Nickel coated brass fixings.
