This is What's Included

Padded laptop compartment

Padded laptop compartment


The padded laptop compartment is big enough for a 15” or 16” MacBook Pro, making this bag a strong contender for many photographers.

Removable padded insert

Removable padded insert


The flexible Padded Insert gives your equipment protection on all sides. Like the bag itself it is flexible front-to-back to allow it to fit slightly bigger gear than its dimensions suggest. ​

 

2x vertical dividers are included and attach inside with Velcro®. They can be repositioned inside by attaching to the Velcro® strips sewn into the front and back of the insert. ​

 

The padded insert can be removed to turn the bag from a camera bag to a casual messenger bag in seconds. Without the padded insert it makes a great overnight bag.

Great for larger DSLRs

Great for larger DSLRs


The two vertical dividers are made of multiple panels to bend around and ‘hug’ your camera. ​

 

Like the ‘Hadley Large’ the extra height compared to the other Hadley’s allows you to attach longer lenses to cameras – such as 70-200mm lenses to a Canon or Nikon DSLR.

Back zip pocket

Back zip pocket


The flat back pocket allows for A4 or ‘US Legal’ size documents to be stored. A fabric flap made of the same 3-layer waterproof fabric as the rest of the bag protects the zip from the elements.

Large front pockets

Large front pockets


The very spacious front dump pockets are perfect for cables, film, spare batteries , lens wipes and those little bits and bobs you want to keep separate. ​ ​

 

On the top-outside corner of each pocket is a pop-clip. Release this to expand the space available. Keep it closed to form a perfect place to clip pens, pencils etc.

Leather grab handle

Leather grab handle


The leather handle with a press stud close is the ideal solution for added comfort when carrying a heavy load.​ ​

 

You don’t need to undo this top-handle to get into the bag.

Buckle front straps

Buckle front straps


The Hadley Large Pro does not feature our ‘Quick Release System’ straps due to the size and weight of the equipment that is usually put into this camera bag. Instead, the leather front straps have classic buckles to keep your equipment safely and securely stored.

Sculpted top flap

Sculpted top flap


The sculpted top flap helps prevent rain, snow or unwanted fingers getting into the main compartment. It is made of the same 3-layer waterproof fabric as the rest of the bag.​

Adjustable shoulder sling

Adjustable shoulder sling


The shoulder sling is made of strong woven webbing. It is adjustable in length to suit your height and shooting style.​

 

The sling is compatible with the SP20 and SP50 (recommended) shoulder pads – not included.

Add optional AVEA End Pockets

Add optional AVEA End Pockets


Large and strong real leather side patches distribute weight and allow for the ability to add any size AVEA End Pockets for extra storage.​ ​

 

The design of the side panels means you can fit End Pockets to sit low or high depending on your preference.​ ​

 

Please note: only two end pockets will fit at once, one on each end.

15-16" laptop in the dedicated laptop area at the back of the bag.

Most DSLRs with a medium-long lens attached (e.g. Canon 1DX, Canon 5D or Nikon D850 with 70-200mm attached). Plus 2 lenses (maybe themselves attached to cameras).

Almost any mirrorless camera with a medium-long lens attached (e.g. Fujifilm XT-4, Sony A7IV, Canon R6, Nikon Z7 with lens approx 20cm long attached). Plus 2 lenses (maybe themselves attached to cameras).

Often used to carry two (or even 3 depending on size) cameras with medium-to-long lenses attached side by side.

Some large format cameras that can be folded relatively flat.

Often used by our customers as an overnight bag. Maybe with one camera and some clothes. Or with the padded insert removed no camera and more clothes.

Yes this bag is quite a bit bigger than the Hadley Large bag - the extra few centimeters on all the dimensions make it a significant step up in size.

Yes it fits cabin baggage dimensions for almost every airline. In fact many of our customers use this bag for travelling as it has enough space to carry the essentials for a day or two's travel yet its slim enough to carry around (although it is less slim than the Hadley Pro, Hadley Pro 2020Hadley Small, Hadley Small Pro and Hadley Large).

The removable dividers let you split the bag into three columns. It would be easy to carry a camera with a lens attached in one column and then a change of clothes in the remaining space.

If you fill this bag with a lot of equipment it can make the bag too heavy to rely on clogballs. The buckles are there so that you can carry more weight in the bag if you wish.

No. The top handle can't be used as a way of getting into the bag - the only way is to open the front buckles. 

 

The pop-clips on the top handle are just a neat and comfortable way of holding the straps at the top of the bag together.

Yes it does.

Yes it does.

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 SP20 and SP50 shoulder pads fit. The 'SP20' has more grip whereas the 'SP50' has more padding. For most customers we recommend the SP50 shoulder pad.

 

Remember to select the correct colour for your bag!

The shoulder pad isn't essential but can stop the strap from digging into your shoulder if you carrying heavy equipment inside the bag or carrying it for long periods. It can also reduce the chances of the bag slipping off your shoulder if you don't wear it across the body. Remember only the 'SP20' and 'SP50' sizes fit this bag. Buying it with the bag will save the postage cost of buying it separately later.

Yes this bag comes with a removable padded insert included in the price. You can take the padded insert out if not carrying cameras - this turns the bag into a great travel bag.

Yes you should fit that in fairly easy so long as the lens is less than about 22cm. It will only push the sides of the bag out a small amount.
