        Comments about 445 Shoulder Bag (Khaki with Tan Leather Trim):

        I've purchased several bags in the past only to search for a more genuine means to transport my gear.

        I knew about Billingham years ago but could never get past the price. You know what they say, "You get what you pay for", and so I took the Billingham plung.

        I will never regret purchasing the 445 bag, after receiving and organizing my gear. This is the right bag if your looking to transport your gear from location to location or even for travel.

        I have two DSLR bodies, four lens, Fuji x100s, chargers, batteries and many other items in this bag and love it.

        I will indeed purchase another Billingham bag for everyday carry but this is the bag for transporting your gear.

            Comments about 445 Shoulder Bag (Black with Tan Leather Trim):

            I bought the 445 to carry my Canon kit and Macbook Pro 13" laptop. I am very comfortably able to stash the following:

            Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS
            Zeiss 35mm f/1.4
            Canon 430 EX II flash
            Canon 50mm f/1.4
            Canon 40mm f/2.8
            Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II
            A couple of fixed focal length manual Olympus lenses with Canon adapters
            Canon 6D with 24-105mm f/4L IS attached
            All hoods
            Charger, a couple of batteries, cables, filters, etc.
            Macbook Pro 13" and charger

            The bag is pretty heavy with all the gear and I don't normally walk around with it, it's really just for working out of the car or trailer and then I just carry the camera and maybe one extra lens but it's great to finally have one bag that accommodates it all instead of the old 2 - 3 bag setup I had. The 445 is strong and doesn't feel stressed at all.

            The construction is great and impeccably detailed, just as you'd expect a high-end British piece of luggage to be made. Like everyone else, I wish it were less expensive but I don't think it could be made as well for much less. I've probably spent as much on cheap bags over the last few years combined as I did on this but I feel like I'm finished for a good long while now that I have my Billingham.

              Comments about 445 Shoulder Bag (Khaki with Tan Leather Trim):

              I use this bag to carry my Canon 50D (a pretty hefty DSLR camera) and 4 lenses. Plenty of room for paperwork, pens, accessories, and whatever else I may accumulate. Loops sewn onto the bag allow toting a tripod.

              This bag is large, on the scale of a carry-on suitcase. Filling it with camera equipment will make it pretty heavy.

              My favorite feature is the bag strap. The Y-shape strap attachment ensures that even if your gear is imbalanced, the bag does not flip or tumble.

                  I bought this bag to carry my expanding Leica M9 camera, I knew it would be large for the M9 but I wanted a big bag to carry all my 6 lenses, my flash and all my accessories all in one place. I had to purchase additional dividers for proper organization, I like the handle which makes the bag easy to carry, a luxurious well built bag for my M9

                        I actually use this as much as a regular bag for laptops and general use as for as a camera bag. But its very useful and nice for both.

                        In turns of speed and ease of use, some of the more modern bacgs are probably better, but if you like the classic stylings and materials this is a good choice.

                        Although some people will think it a little bigger than they want, it's just the right size for me because I have to always carry my 15.4" Macbook Pro with my Nikon D50 and 3-4 lenses all in a bag during an international trip.

                        Big bad bag

                        By Alec Gold

                        from Netherlands

                        Comments about 445 Shoulder Bag (Khaki with Tan Leather Trim):

                        This is a rather large bag and hold lots of stuff. I use it on a daily base with a Canon G7, Macbook pro, stuffed it with paper, calculator, floppy drive (don't ask) and several cables and a power converter. I had a backpack from Brenthaven, and it fitted that precisely, but really not much more could be stuffed in it. This bag can also hold my apple, lunchbox, a thermos coffee and still have space to spare. The 445 is able to take that and much more. Besides not looking like a computer or camera bag it has very good looks as well. I've used it now for about 6 months or so, so I can't really tell about wear, but I can tell it is as stable as a bunker. It is hard to explain, but it has a lot of flaps on top. At first I really had my thoughts about them, but you can flap them away to the back where they don't interfere. Because the bag is so stable it isn't a problem to have an open bag, nothing will drop out.

                        Expertise: I've got about 15 or 20 bags, so when it comes to bags, I'm a self-proclaimed expert :P

                        Problems Encountered: If there are any backdraws to this bag I would have to mention the price, it is sturdy, and I believe them when they say it will last a decade or more, but for me the initial price was a bit hard. One other thing is that there are not so much small pouches. But that isn't the design of the bag, so it isn't a real con, it isn't made for business use, it's a camera bag. Last thing is that it can contain so much stuff, it tends to get really, really heavy, so consider well before you buy. A big bag always seems to fill without any problem, but also gets heavy!

                        Previous Equivalent Item Owned: Brenthaven, Crumpler, Lowepro

                        Items I Recommend: use a small side pouch for the cellphone, it tends to get last in the large pockets!
