Billingham 225 overview

  • 1Description

The Billingham 225 Shoulder Bag is designed to carry a digital SLR camera with three lenses and accessories. It is constructed from soft-weave fabric which helps eliminate abrasions, combined with Stormblocker dual-laminate waterproof fabric. The bag has a heavy-duty, closed-cell foam padded interior and a double-laminated, removable hard bottom. In black FibreNyte with black leather trim and green interior lining, it has a Superflex 9-15 partition for separating and organizing the interior.

The 225 bag has four interior slip pockets located between the main inner compartment and the exterior, two large front exterior pockets and two pen pockets on the front. It is carried by an interior grab handle that allows the protective cover flap to remain open, or by a leather grab handle that snaps together securely for easy hand carrying. A Delta Sling shoulder strap with a heavy-duty, neoprene-backed, leather shoulder pad provides another transport option.

    Billingham 225 reviews

    225 Shoulder Bag Black with Black Leather Trim is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as great as I thought... I was really looking forward to getting this bag, but in the end I made teh decision to return it. It's quite a bulky bag - when you're wearing it it sticks out really far from the body and didn't feel very comfortable. Also the inside is really hard to customize as it only comes with one foam divider and one lens divider which was actually too small for my lenses. I would have needed to buy some extra foam dividers - something I don't feel should be required with a bag of this price. The construction and quality of materials did seem good, but I just didn't like the shape and found the space inside hard to work with.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp looking and very practical Nice design and great size that can pass as a Hand bag on a flight allowing for a second full size carry on. All pockets are in the right place. I use this bag for my Hasselblad 501CM with an 80mm lens mounted, a spare 100mm lens and three film backs, one mounted on the body and two in the individual pockets which suspiciously appear to have been designed for the A12 Hasselblad backs. There's plenty of room left for additional rolls of film, a light meter, etc. The design allows for quick access with both hands while on the shoulder strap and it feels secure without risk of slippage.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice to carry great quality This is a very well made case, not the cheap stuff that permeates the marketplace. Look at the dimensions when you buy, and pick the size that's right for you. This will hold my D700 with a normal zoom attached, as well as a flash and a couple of other lenses. Also room for my iPad and a number of odds and ends. I wanted this as a sole carry on for personal travel, and it suffices well. Also good as my camera / entertainment bag on extended business travel overseas. I highly recommend this Billingham bag.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bag for photographers on the go I recently purchased this bag for my Canon 5D Mark II set-up. Currently it houses the body, a 16-35mm 2.8L and a slough of accessories, and there's still room for another large lens. Pros: Looks great, light weight and hold a surprisingly large amount of gear. Cons: Strap locks are a little difficult to open when you're in a rush.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Practical and attractive I bought this bag after having bought a larger backpack for my gear, because I wanted something for those photo days when I just don't need quite as much stuff with me. And, nevertheless, it holds a lot... I have my Canon 7d, a couple lenses and a bunch of smaller miscellaneous stuff in it... which does make it quite heavy. The bag is very durable and I expect to have it for years.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Craftsmanship Truly, this is the Leica of camera bags. Now I'm not rich enough to afford a Leica, but I was able to splurge on this bag and let me tell you- it's great. The workmanship is just superb. It smells like... England. And I've never even been to England. Real leather, top notch construction and materials, well thought out design... Using this thing is just a joy. Not to mention it's pretty good looking to boot! The only real downside I've come across is that opening it is a put-it-down-on-the-table-and-use-two-hands sort of operation, but it's in a rugged sort of way, not an ill-concieved or poorly designed sort of way. It holds a heck of a lot of gear, too! Granted, I'm a Micro Four Thirds user, so my gear is smaller than most, but I can comfortably hold in this bag a GH1 body, Minolta SRT-201 body, a Zoom H4n and 4 mid sized lenses. It'll also hold my iPad, various batteries, chargers, film and still has room to boot! Granted, that's a pretty full bag and I'd be unlikely to take such a large assortment of gear out on any given day, but it's nice to know that if I ever have to trek into the jungle for a year, this bag will carry everything I need. Again, I can't stress enough just how well built the thing is. It's so freaking sturdy. Though I'd hate to ruin its lovely exterior, I'm certain this bag would thrive in a down and dirty environment. Alright, I'm just gushing now. If you're on the fence about it, buy this bag. One of the best purchases I've ever made in my life. Worth every penny.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Prettiest Piece of Luggage I Ever Owned The quality and finish on this bag are second to none. I travel extensively and have used lots of high-quality luggage in my life. This bag is the prettiest and best made piece I ever used. I bought it as a camera equipment bag. I wanted a bag large enough to fit a Canon 5D III and a couple large lenses easily but I did not want something big and bulky. So I settled on the Billingham 225. Some of the smaller Billinghams did not appear to have the width to accommodate the camera with even a small lens mounted on it. It turned out to be a good size. Packed full at the Daytona Rolex 24 Hours a couple weeks ago it carried everything I wanted and a bit more. The bag was a bit heavy but that was because of all the stuff in it. Next time out I will pack lighter and know the bag will handle the job without being too bulk and space to spare. My only complaint is the top closure. This bag, unlike some of the other Billinghams, is not easy to open when being carried. If the top is fastened and the carrying handles joined you need to remove the bag from your shoulder to open it. I found a happy medium where I folded over the top flap but left it unfastened and let the handle straps flap in the wind. Then I could get into the bag without setting it down.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and Functional I use the Billingham 225 for carrying my Canon 5D Mark II with a normal zoom mounted and an extra lens (either a 100mm Macro or a wide angle zoom). It's the perfect bag for a lightweight kit to be used for day hikes, or for shooting landscapes from a touring bicycle. The build quality of this bag is the best I've seen. I've tried many other major brands, but nothing comes close. The design is refined, and the fit and finish is super precise. These bags are known to last many decades and I can certainly see why. Highly recommended!
