I've always thought they looked good, especially in comparison with other manufacturers but I've never really though them that great as camera bags, too many open pockets for things to tumble out of.

What do other people think? Are they worth the money, do you like them as bags, what alternatives would you recommend?

I have a Billingham 107 which is waterproof and stylish. I've had mine for about 10 years and it looks as good as new. I've carried it in the pouring rain with no problems.

Unfortunately I don't use it that often as I find the closure system really fiddly. Leather strap push pin, followed by leather handle with button clips, followed by zipper. Removing/replacing a small item, such as a wallet, can become a chore. It's also a heavy bag for its size.

For day-to-day work I prefer the Lowepro AW range (love the old Magnum shoulder bag!). Not as pretty, but much more efficient.
