The Billingham 225 Shoulder Bag (Khaki with Tan Leather Trim) is designed to carry a digital SLR camera with 3 lenses and accessories. The case is constructed from soft-weave fabric which helps eliminate abrasions, combined with Stormblocker dual laminate waterproof canvas, a heavy-duty, closed cell foam padded interior and a double-laminated, removable hard bottom. It also has a Superflex 8-15 partition for separating and organizing the interior.

The 225 bag has 4 interior slip pockets that are located between the main inner compartment and the exterior of the bag, 2 large front exterior pockets and 2 pen pockets on the front of the bag. It is carried by an interior grab handle that allows the photographer to hand carry the bag with the protective cover flap open, a leather grab handle that snaps together securely for easy hand carrying and a Delta Sling shoulder strap with heavy-duty neoprene backed leather shoulder pad.

      This was my second Billingham Bag. I was looking for a bigger bag to hold my D7000 without removing the grip. While this did fit the fill, it has other issues. First this is a heavy bag for its size. Your shoulder is going to be feeling it after a while. Also the speed straps are not speedy at all. You have to route the straps through the metal ring then attach the strap to the locking button. The bag handle straps get in the way. Also if the front pockets are empty, it hard to quickly attach the strap to the locking button since the entire fronts dip in, not giving you enough a backing to hold it still.

      If you want to keep going in and out of your bag quickly you have to have the external flap hanging in back of the bag. This means the the handle flaps are also hanging in the wind.

      Comments about 225 Shoulder Bag (Khaki with Tan Leather Trim):

      A lot has been said about the Billingham camera bags and this is not going to be an excepion or any different, why? Because of two things, they just work and they look fantastic while doing it; the interior is as customizable as you ned it, with all of the partitions that can be arranged in any way you want it, and if you feel like you still need it in a different way, you can order some more partitions to get it the way you want it; the 225 also has some loops on the bottom and those are there to be used to carry a tripod or monopod, you have to buy the straps separetly but they are of the same quality you've come to expect from Billingham; I use the bag to carry a Canon 60D with Canon Battery Grip BG-E9 a Canon 15-85 EF-S f/3.5-5.6 IS USM attached, a Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM and a Canon Speedlite 270EX II, everything fits perfectly with room to spare for more equipment, maybe even a couple more lenses,I read soem reviews where they say that you have to get used to the straps that keep the bag closed and yes, they are right, they do take some get used to but they will break in with the use, but let me take this opportunity to point out that this bag is not designed to be a "quick draw" type of bag, if that is what you are looking for, you will be better served by going with something else, this bag is for carrying your equipment in the most secure way while protecting it from the elements. I bought the bag as a secondary bag for when I don't want to "hump" any more than what's described, for quick trips knowing fully well that I am not going to need anything else. The quality of the bag is on par with that of a Louis Vuitton and this is just for comparison sake, I know that they are two different products but I am pointing that that due to the fact that some people will say that they cannot justify a $[$]price tag for a camera bag and thet's their opinion and it's a valid one but if you want a camera bag that is waterproof, without having to wrap it up in another plastic bag, you want a camera bag that looks the part and you must certainly don't want a bag that screams "there is an expensive camera inside this bag" to a would be thief, and you want a camera bag that pretty much says NO to the geek factor, or you just plainly lust after the best that money can buy? Trust me when I say, you will not be disappointed and you will get what you paid for.

          Comments about 225 Shoulder Bag (Khaki with Tan Leather Trim):

          This Billingham is a top of the class bag that comes with an obvious top of the class price. I wouldn't buy this for a $1000 camera system, I'd spend the money on accessories for the camera instead. However since I have well in excess of $10,000 invested in my camera system it only made sense to me to give that gear the best protection possible while transporting it.

          Exceptionally well made, well padded, and the removable insert pockets are first class as well. I use it primarily to transport my current 1D series body with an attached 70-200mm lens. Has room for some additional smaller accessories as well. If you want to transport a large camera (or two) and multiple lenses you may want to consider a larger version of this bag.

            A perfect match for my equipment. I've made the investment for some great camera gear so why not in a great bag to carry it all. I'm extremely pleased with the quality and build. At least with this bag, people will think I know what I'm doing even if i don't.

              The 225 is the best bag I've ever owned. It holds my Nikon D300, four lenses(one attached to the camera body), and a flash, as well as assorted accessories. The materials that the bag is constructed of are second to none, and the protection it gives your equipment is about the best there is.It's a little tougher to get in and out of compaired to some other bags because of all the leather straps, but that can also be seen as a plus,because this is a very secure camera bag. I really can't say enough good things about the Billingham 225 shoulder bag.

                Excellent, secure, understated travel/storage bag. Holds all my stuff, very nicely organized. It did feel heavy at first; I attached it to my wheeled bag, and it balanced nicely. Then I carried it cross-body and it wasn't bad. It *may* be too heavy for me to shoot from directly, but I don't want to carry this much stuff when I'm shooting anyway. Definitely a little boxy, but a solid bag overall.

                              I found this bag online a while back, but hesitated in ordering it due to price. When I recently upgraded my camera, I needed a really good bag for it and the lenses I've collected. This bag is almost perfect! It is very sturdy and is designed very well. It does take some "getting used to," as there are multiple flaps and compartments. But, once you break it in a bit, it is very easy to access gear and accessories. The buckles were a bit stiff when the bag first arrived, and a little hard to open. But, like all good leather, they broke in after just a week or so of use, and now getting in and out of the bag is super easy. Even after loosening up, the design of the buckles keeps equipment very secure when the bag is closed up. I purchased the "backpack" strap, which works very nicely. It wasn't exactly intuitive, but was very comfortable once I figured out the correct way to hook it to the bag. The only "downside" I found to this bag is in the included padded inserts. While it is great that you can reposition them, it would be nice if the configuration allowed for two lenses, rather than a lens and a flash. I have not yet figured out the best way to configure the inserts for the gear I want to carry, but am sure I will. For the time being, I have removed them and am using the leather pouches my lenses came in, which works well, too.

                                  It was the perfect size for my canon EOS 5D Mark ll and 3 lens until I put the battery grip on so I had to return the bag and get a bigger one. The exchange was easy but of course I had to wait longer for the new bag.

                                  I am a bag-aholic and given my desire to road-test lots of carry-alls, I can assert that this Billingham bag is functional, stylish, and best of all, waterproof. In downpours, I needn't worry about my gear staying dry.

                                    I am very satisfied with this bag. I use it at all my day-trips, it be in the city or photo-walking in the mountains. It is very comfortable, and it holds all my gear - 4 lenses, including the nikon 80-200mm 2.8, my flash and my nikon d300 with mb-d10.

                                      My wife is looking for a camera bag, which is not traditonal bag(alway black). This 225 bag is pretty match to my Nikon D3 camera + 24-70f/2.8, and one SB900 flash in the main compartment. The should pad is the most comfortable of all my bags. It is not full-weather bag and not raincoat provided.
