    The BEST LEICA BAG!!!!

    I've been searching for the past couple of months for a replacement to my Billingham Leica M Combination bag, where my Leica M2, M8, and M9 (and soon M240) have all sat over the years. I've used Domke, Artisan & Artist, Fogg, and many other bags in the past, but I've always gone back to my Billingham Leica bag. Why?

    1. Fits my M body and 3 lenses comfortable (50Noct, 35CronIV, 90Cron). I keep one lens on the camera and the other two tucked inside its Leica leather pouches, which also fit snugly into the compartments.

    2. BLACK. The Billingham Leica bag is completely matte black. Stealth is everything in street photography and especially when you are using a Leica. Not only will it help to deter theft, but it will also deter attention from your subjects.

    3. AVEA Leica M side pockets are detachable and are excellent for those extra accessories. I usually keep a couple pens, shutter release cable, and some cleaning cloths. It also has a larger zipped front pocket, where I can keep my battery, memory cards, and a note pad (I've even fit a Kindle Fire in it for long trips). The inner compartment also has a rear pocket, which is where I keep a few filters, cleaning cloths, and business cards for quick access. I keep a pretty light load, which is the whole point of owning an M system. So when I want to have just the bare minimum, then I unhook the AVEA pockets and it's just a tiny bag with a body and lenses.

    4. The top of the inner compartments are also closed off by a cushion before the external cover is buckled on. I questioned the durability of the brass strap locks, but they have stand through the test of time and have never unlocked or release on their own. It might seem like a very insecure locking mechanism at first, but it is extremely safe and efficient...you have extremely fast access to your camera and lenses, which is critical to get the shot sometimes. I've done photojournalistic, wedding, modeling, and travel photography completely with Leica cameras and this bag have always survived the abuse.

    5. The shoulder strap is wide and comfortable but I also purchased a Billingham pad for it. The Leica camera's original strap is extremely painful to wear over long periods of time and the tiny rubber stubs can really irritate the skin on the back of your neck. I recommend the leather Leica strap, which is a great alternative to the stock strap that comes with your camera. The Billingham shoulder pad also has a rubber lining, so it will not slip when you are wearing it diagonally.

    Like I've mentioned before, I've owned and tried many bags in the past, but I've always gone back to my Billingham Leica M Combo bag in the end. I've used it for many years now and it still performs and looks great for its age. Hope this helps.

    I plan on returning this item. There is nothing wrong with this bag; it is well constructed and would make a fine carry bag if you had only one lens and one M body. However, I have one M body and three lenses. Leica ships their lenses in very nice, padded leather pouches. These pouches offer superior protection for these expensive lenses. However, there is not enough room in this bag for these lens pouches. At best I could only fit one lens pouch along with my M9 into this bag. And the lens pouch for my Noctilux is too wide for this bag. So, if you have only one lens or you don't care whether or not you use the lens pouches, then this bag is perfect. Otherwise, look for something larger.

      Comments about Leica Combination Bag for M system:

      I wanted a bag that fit my equipment. I bought this in black and the extra leather shoulder pad too.

      The bag design and execution are up to the standards of the M system. It is very well made, very practically set up, perfectly fitted to the system, and as elegant and discreet as the gear it is made to carry. In black, carried off the shoulder to my side, the bag is is close to invisible. It has a small "Billingham for Leica" label inside under its top flap, and it comes in a silver Leica box with a Leica branded loading diagram.

      I am using the bag to hold the M with a lens mounted on it and two other lenses; one of the lenses is the big Nocti 0.95. The lenses' cases do not fit so the padding in the bag affords all the protection. To me, this seems adequate for all but the most rugged excursions, and Leica's loading diagram shows no additional protective cases.

      I also bought the optional leather shoulder pad - a pricy extra at $40.00. The bag comes with a shoulder pad on its strap. If I had shopped in person and had a chance to see both shoulder pads, I don't think I would have splurged for the leather one. The standard pad is very well made and quite substantial. Having said that, I am going to keep the leather pad; another indulgence in a hugely indulgent system.

          Use the bag for a Leica M8, 35 and 50 Summicron. Both lenses in their cases inside the bag. Front pocket for filters, extra battery and SD cards. Will also stuff my D-Lux 5 in there from time to time. Expensive bag but great quality. B&H again does a great job. I initially got the Tan M system bag, but did not like the look. Returned it and got the black one. Now I am happy.

            Quality and size work for me and my M8.2, 3 lens and then some. Also has room for my Leica D-Lux 3. This size in black is less obtrusive which is a benefit in general. A little more in withe wouldn't hurt but this works for me. The high price is irrelevant considering it's protecting $12,000+ in Leica equipment.

            Comments about Leica Combination Bag for M system:

            I've been looking for a small, versatile, and inconspicuous bag to carry the M9 with a couple lenses, charger, etc. when I don't want to log around the 5D, especially when working overseas. This bag is almost perfect in terms of functionality. The Billingham and Leica logos are on the inside, the bag doesn't look like a camera bag, it's a big plus for security.

            The black material does seem to visibly attract dust quite easily. One subjective thing is that I think the locking mechanism can be improved - it takes a bit of fiddling to open the top when the bag is locked.

I have room for all the extra batteries and chargers and can carry my Leica HD 32 binoculars when travelling.

The other is not as important, but the black version with the silver knobs looks like a woman bag. I would not recommend the black bag unless you're a chick [...]Unfortunately, I am neither. The bag holds my M9, two lens, and an air blower.

                            I found the perfect Billingham bag for my compact Leica's. After evaluating many brands and bags I found this Billingham bag holds my Leica X1 and D Lux 4 perfectly with room to spare for memory cards, spare batteries, moisture monsters, chargers when needed, etc. With the addition of the Billingham AVEA pouches (two can be attached to the bag)you can add even more room. There is a rear pocket and front zip pocket under the main flap. Perfect sized and with hidden Billingham Leica labels the bag does not scream photo bag. Usual Billingham craftsman, designed to last a liftime and the moveable interior flaps let you customize the interior to your changing needs. I plan to purchase another for a Leica M system.
