      Comments about Stowaway Compact Bag (Black):

      I got this to carry my new Panasonic GM-1, a Panasonic P&S converted to infrared plus my iPhone and accessories during warm weather when I don't wear a jacket. It holds the cameras, an extra lens and filters, is small enough not to get in the way, and is styled appropriately so that it does not raise eyebrows as a male purse,

        Just the right size for my P7000. You can add extra batteries, memory cards and still have space for a phone and wallet. Really a wonderful well designed and made case.

          Comments about Stowaway Compact Bag (Black):

          If you hate having a large iPhone, keys, wallet, and other items jammed into your pant pockets this is a great little daily bag.

          I did not want a sachel or something "purse like".

          This is a solid, stylish, and functional bag. The material is heavy and of a fine water repellent weave. I love it.

          A rangerfinder would perfectly fit in this bag - so now I will "have" to get one.

          My only disapointment is that only smaller paperbacks will fit in the main part of the bag, which is a drawback for using it as a little cary on when traviling by air or train.

            Comments about Stowaway Compact Bag (Khaki):

            This compact bag is ideal for carrying a compact digital camera, as well as a phone, wallet and other everyday items. The selection of zipped and open compartments makes this bag easy and convenient to use. As if that wasn't enough, this bag is made from high quality materials, and is extremely well constructed. Billing ham bags have an excellent reputation, and this bag lives up to it.

              I am a Billingham branded person and added this to my collection to carry my Leica D-Lux 6 with DMW-LVF3 viewfinder mounted, 6 SDHC cards, extra battery, battery charger, cables, camera manual, LCD/Lens cleaning cloth, sunglasses & iPhone. To me, this the Louis Vuitton of all compact camera bags.

              Comments about Stowaway Compact Bag (Khaki):

              Billingham really are for the photographer who has everything, offering a level of boutique quality that is so good it's almost unnecessary. While most camera bags are stout and functional, a Billingham is also a thing of beauty, with leather trim, brass and stainless fittings and quality stitching. It's also a very solid camera bag. The fittings, zippers and fasteners will probably outlast the owner and it has a lots of handy pockets for all those accessories photographers invariably collect. This is the ideal size for a rangefinder or compact system as it has room for extra lenses, filters and a small flash. I mangage to get an X100, lens hood, polarizer, light meter, mini tripod, small reflector, grey card, cleaning kit, cable release, spare battery and cards in it. The only thing I don't like about it (and it's a minor quibble) is the closure on the main flap. It's a leather strap that fixes on a brass keyed toggle kind of arrangement. It's not very efficient and is probably there as a matter or aesthetics, not function. A press-stud would be far more practical. Having said that, this is a very high quality item that will last a lifetime, but cheap it ain't - quality like this costs.

                  This Billingham bag is an ideal "man bag" a purse for guys when your jeans pockets can't hold anymore. The bag not only looks great but has Billingham quality and design. It has class, will look great at any occasion.
