        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.

          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

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

              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.
