Based on the ever popular Hadley Original, the Hadley Pro is a mirror with added features. A carrying handle is integrated with a stiffener into the top flap. The weight of your gear is not carried through canvas holes that could wear out, rather they are attached to a fibreglass stiffner and supported through that. A waterproofed zippered back pocket is very useful for tickets, magazines, manuals or any other flat document. The facility to add extra capacity with our AVEA pouches rounds off the bag nicely.
It has a fully removeable insert with dividers that can be adjusted with velcro fastenings to suit equipment. The insert lifts out, much like a bucket. This bag also features adjustable Quick Release Straps into brass buckles, bellowed front pockets with press-stud fastenings and a double darted main flap which covers the mouth of the bag when closed, protecting it from rain and weather elements.
The fully adjustable shoulder sling is sewn under a leather side patch, which provides the facility to attach our AVEA side pockets. The AVEA 03 is the nicest looking fit as they are slimmer and match the side profile of the Hadley Pro. However, the AVEA 05's will also fit if you need extra room and are less concerned with aesthetics.
The clean and elegant lines of a Billingham are apparent in every bag, from the overall design to the hand finished leather and brass detail
Whatever gear you need to carry, the chances are that one of the Hadleys will fit the bill. The range runs from the compact, Hadley Digital to the spacious and aptly namedHadley Large Pro.
If your preference is for a bag with a handle and optional AVEA Pockets, there is the Hadley Pro. Featuring a useful zipped back pocket with rain flap, it can also come in handy as a stylish briefcase.
In between the Digital and the larger models comes the Hadley Small. Like all Billingham products, the Hadleys are not just beautifully made, they are made to protect yourequipment and keep on doing it for years.
All Hadleys feature the Quick Release System to which we have added solid brass buckles. Why both? Simple, the QRS allows you to open and close the bag quickly andsecurely and the buckles allow you to fine tune the ‘fit’ of the front pockets . For instance, if you have really packed in some bulky gear into one front pocket, you can just let out that side’s buckle to suit. Other common features across the range are a padded inner lid over the main compartment to help keep out rain or snow and a sculpted main flap which protect the bags’ contents from adverse weather conditions.
All the Hadleys (except the Digital which has a single central fastener) have a secondary stud fitted to both front pockets’ top outer corner which can be used to increase orreduce their capacity - when closed it forms a perfect place to clip pens, pencils, etc. Because it is relatively compact, we have made the Digital compatible with the optional AVEA Pockets so when you need more room it can simply be added. The AVEA Pockets also fit the Hadley Pro, which has the distinction of a comfortable and tough top fixed handle .
Aside from the Digital, every Hadley features a removable padded insert with adjustable partitions and an integral flap, held in position with Velcro® touch fastener strips. If you want to stack your kit, you can use more dividers. The whole insert can be detached by a single press stud, to transform the Hadley into an understated, stylish travel or work bag.
