I do have an opinion about the Billingham brand.
They are not adequate camera bags. They offer no protection against dust or moisture. The pouches do not keep stuff securely in place. You need to get the insides from another manufacturer if you want to keep your material from scratching against each other.

Im not sure which Billingham you were using, but my Hadley Small has offered fantastic protection against dust and moisture (including half dozen trips to Malaysia during the wet season), nothing has ever fallen out of a pouch, and the inserts and dividers have been of great quality and work exactly as they should, and nothing has ever scratched against anything... YMMV.

I have had two of them. I gave them away to photographing family members.
Now I am looking for yet another bag and probably my choice is the 13" Peak Designs everyday bag. I have had the 15" as my everyday bag for three years now. The person(s) who designed it have clearly used it themselves.
There is a certain functionality I have not met in any other make.
This is an opinion based on my own daily use.

I can vouch for the Hadley Small since I have it for about 10 years.  I also have the Billingham Small which can hold my 10.5 in ipad when I travel.  These bags offer security from pick pockets.  In two occasions, the pick pocket managed to undo the buckle, but since the flap is quite deep, it is difficult to put a handle into the bag.  I did not loose anything.
