        This is a beautifully crafted camera bag. I am a long time Tamarac fan and find their gear well suited for the rough and tumble pro. I bought the Billingham bag for my Leica M-3 and assorted lenses. A classic holding classics. If you have some special cameras this is the bag.

          Comments about L2 Bag (Black with Tan Leather Trim):

          Like many others, have had a love hate relationship with bags. Of course, have gone thru a variety of camera systems and each bag was "perfect" for a given system. However, I wish I had purchased a Billingham 30 years ago. Not because it would have functioned any better than another bag, but it would have 30 years of patina. These are wonderful looking and feeling bags - the leather feels good, the canvas is soft. It's one of those items that will get better with age. Oh yeah, it does what a camera bag should - protection, etc. My setup follows: two vertical dividers which allows Nikkor 24/2.8 and 50/1.8 stacked on the left, Nikon Df in the center, and a Nikkor 85/1.8G on the right. An SB-300, a few filters, cards, etc go in the front pouch.

            Comments about L2 Bag (Black with Black Leather Trim):

            I ordered this bag along with the Billingham Hadley Digital, Stowaway Pola and Domke F-8 small and this is the bag that I kept. I was looking for a bag that would hold my Sony a7 with a 35mm lens (and another lens down the road), cards, filters etc., but also hold my wallet, EpiPen, travel documents - perhaps a novel or kobo or maps etc if I am travelling. This bag is a little boxy, but it is extremely simple, practical and versatile with respect to internal areas and positioning of the padded dividers. I wasn't sure about the little metal feet, but it offers nice protection when putting the bag down or storing under the plane seat etc. Instead of carrying a purse and a camera bag, I can have everything in one location which makes good sense for me. It is easy to open and remove items and at the same time they feel securely in the bag when it is done up.

              Comments about L2 Bag (Black with Black Leather Trim):

              Having returned to Leica M digital equipment after 15 years with high-end Nikon DSLR, I bought this bag as well, because it is smaller than my Lowe Pro bag. Initially, I didn't like it. But now after a few weeks of use, I'm very happy with it. Room for my ME w/35 Summicron, 24mm Elmar Aspherical, and 90mm Summarit, plus a full-size Metz flash. Including the extra battery for the ME, Viewfinder for the 24, and diffuser for the flash. The fit and finish of this product is first class, including the optional wide shoulder pad. I trust it to protect my investments, and it's easy to get the camera out quickly!

                  Typical high quality construction and materials. I'm using this for a single body 6x7 medium format kit with extras. The upside down strap closures seem backwards until you try to open or close them while wearing the bag - then the design makes sense. My only disappointment was that the small from section of the bag doesn't have any padding or inserts on the bottom, leaving the bottom feet rivets sticking up in the bag where they could scratch your equipment or iPad. I contacted Billingham about getting a padded strip, but haven't heard back from them yet. At this price, the shoulder strap pad should be included, in my opinion.

                    I have been looking for a new camera bag for a while now and didn't want one that screams "camera bag" but could pass as a purse for times when I am traveling or just out and about. It carries my Nikon SLR and compact digital camera with enough room for a small wallet and extra rolls of film.

                      Comments about L2 Bag (Black with Black Leather Trim):

                      This is by far the best camera bag I've ever purchased; and I have had many bags to say the least. This bag suits my needs simply because its small, comfortable on the shoulders, and very, very well made. It's perfect for a rangefinder system. I easily fit my MP and two lenses with room for another body or lens. The first outing with this bag in NYC, it rained, and I had to walk around for a while in moderate rain. The bag held up, no problem. The water just beaded up and rolled off the bag. My gear was dry and protected. The bag Does Not have zippers. At first the thought of not having zippers worried me. Ironically, it's actually better! No more zippers to fumble with when you need access to your gear quickly. Just simply unlock the leather straps and leave them open when in use. The top is oversized, so it easily folds over your gear without having to lock the straps. The bottom of the bag has brass feet which keeps the bag from tipping over when place down on a flat surface. Also, the bottom has reinforced leather corners. This bag has the same exact specs as the Leica M Bag, except that the Leica M has a zipper and does not have brass feet. Save your money and buy the L2 (Alice). Get the new SP40 shoulder pad.

                      This bag is exactly what I needed for my new M9 with the 50mm Lux attached. Comfortable room left for one additional lens (maybe 2), and all the rest you want to bring for a day out shooting pictures. May be a tad bit too small if you want to bring your 13' MacPro Book but... I don't need that.

                          I just got this bag. Two M-6's with winders work in it nicely with a 21 1.4 and 50 mm Summilux. With the Avea 5 bags I can pack in a 28 f 2.8, a 35 2.0 Summicron in one Avea and a 75 mm 1.4 in the other.The Avea 5's can easily be taken off. The side slot on the front allows space for lens shades, film, and cleaning supplies.Most of the time I'll be able to leave the Avea 5's home and use the bodies with two lenses on, and one small 35 mm carried in a case.While I haven't used this set up extensively yet, I think Leica M owners will find this a very fine bag. Most of the time I think one will want to use it without the Avea 5's on it, but when you need the space, you got it.Thanks. [...]

                          I've had this bag for over a year. Perfect for my M6 with lens attached, two spare lenses, plenty of film and filters. Could have used one more partition to separate lenses, but I already had those in pouches.

                          Basically same Billingham bag that Leica markets. The Leica bag comes with a large Leica badge embroidered on the flap not shown in the B&H website photo. It pretty much says, "Steal me first". So, I exchanged it for this bag.

                          Absolutely no functional issues with this bag. The quality is excellent, and it rides well on the shoulder.

                          I'm thinking about getting another Billingham bag for hauling around the DSLRs.

                            Carries one rangfinder (M type) or small SLR and three or four small lenses, plus assorted odds and ends. Perfect for traveling light. It's rugged but classy; doesn't look out of place in the lobby of a swank hotel. At the same time doesn't yell "expensive gear inside!!!" to thieves. Easy access to gear while being safe at the same time. Highly recommended. One of three different Billinghams I own.

                              Comments about L2 Bag (Khaki with Tan Leather Trim):

                              My husband bought me this Alice Bag for my rangefinders. The old Alice Bag had got a little threadbare. I'm looking forward to putting my Alice Bag thru a real hard workout soon!
