      Comments about Billingham Original/Pro Hadley Insert:

      Admittedly I don't have a Billingham bag, but i'm very glad this insert is available separately. I bought it to use in my Goruck GR1 and it works perfectly. It also fits a locally made shoulder bag that I have, making it much more useable as a camera bag. This is a simple and well-made solution to transform regular bags into multi-purpose bags. It's not too bulky and the dimensions seem like it would fit a wide variety of bags.

      The only downside is that, while I much prefer the color to many of the brighter inserts, it does make it a bit more difficult to see the contents. But really, if you're just stowing larger items, it's not that big of a deal.

            Very nice design and high quality product for a DIY camera bag. It is very durable and fits nicely inside my briefcase. Highly recommended... it is the same price as the small Hadley insert and it fits in a larger bag.

              Comments about Billingham Original/Pro Hadley Insert:

              I have an old fishing bag from England that is the same basic design dimesions and materials as the Billingham Hadley Pro. So I swapped out the waterproof liner for this insert and it is perfect, essentially the same bag as the Billingham but with all the funky stains and wear from being on rivers over the last two decades makes for a high end and well padded camera bag that no-one wants to steal.

                Was able to purchase an older Hadley. The bag did not have an insert. THis fit the bill and bag perfectly.

                  Comments about Billingham Original/Pro Hadley Insert:

                  My Hadley is 19 years old and been through a lot. The lining disintigrated long ago. I'm so glad I stummbled onto the new insert at B&H. It is a huge improvement on the old one. Much stiffer and the velcro dividers are very practical for any setup. I eventually bought two.
