They do some things well, like basic build quality and one other feature. Other things more functional, not so well.

How about selling your Billingham on ebay (now that they're worth a lot) and replace it with something more functional?

I just bought a Tenba bag and it seems to have the top-class build quality, but also with great functionality.

Lowepro is also excellent (not QUITE as nice materials and quality as Tenba) but a lot less expensive. I got a nice little sling bag for $35 new, and it blows my mind how good it is. I like that they use the rubber sew-on branding patches, and I can just seam rip them off so they look generic.

Case Logic also makes good bags for the money, but they're not originally camera-centric, so they're not as well thought-out. ...but they can be found in Target.

Last possible path: A nice bag of your choice and a nice camera insert. Totally anonymous and made to your preference.

Controversial advice! Designer luggage for cameras is now considered essential.
