The Everyday Sling might just be the perfect pack for not carrying too much gear, combining comfort with Peak Design's signature modern style.
English camera bag manufacturer Billingham has introduced a new model to its Hadley range that will sit between the Hadley Pro and Hadley Large, and which is designed to hold mid-sized bodies and lenses. The Hadley One is suitable for a DSLR and a couple of lenses, or a good collection of mirrorless kit, and can accommodate a laptop in a dedicated stitched-in pouch.
The new bag is larger than the Hadley Pro and offers a top carry handle, a strap to fix it to the handle of a trolley and a shoulder strap that can be completely removed. The bag has additional padding in the base, sides and front to lend extra protection to the contents of the main compartment, and the end straps allow extra pouches to be attached to increase the overall capacity.
An interior insert can be customized to match the equipment it will carry. The insert can be removed completely or accompanied by an additional insert (optional extra) to control more of the space.
The Hadley One will be available for £265/$459.10, and will come in all black or a combination of two colors: Sage and Chocolate or Khaki and Chocolate.

Versatile, purpose-built camera bag delivers ultimate protection for photographic equipment and laptop or tablet
Billingham has announced the introduction of a new model to its acclaimed Hadley range, providing photographers with the highest quality protection for valuable camera equipment, laptops and personal possessions.
Building on the success of the Hadley Pro, the Hadley One has been designed and precision-engineered in England by the Billingham team, incorporating a host of new features following feedback from photographers around the world. Manufactured from rugged, weather-proof FibreNyte canvas, complemented by strong top-grain leather, this premium bag is slightly larger than the Hadley Pro and offers spacious storage to accommodate a mid-sized DSLR body and lens combination, or a core CSC kit, along with a small laptop or tablet.
Completely adaptable to each photographer’s needs, its removable, full-height padded insert can be positioned within the bag to divide the interior and provide optimum space for all items, and a second optional insert can be added, for extra versatility. A fully padded laptop sleeve has been stitched into the back of the main compartment, to hold a tablet, 13” MacBook Pro or similar device securely in place.
A robust top handle has been incorporated into the design, allowing the Hadley One to be carried as a briefcase or holdall, a features a re-engineered leather covering to provide extra comfort and a secure grip. The adjustable shoulder sling is manufactured from Billingham’s shuttle woven spun polyester and solid brass fittings, and can be completely removed if required.
Billingham’s weather-resistant FibreNyte canvas delivers exceptional durability, colour fastness and protection from external elements. Extremely tough, yet light in weight, it never requires reproofing, retaining its water and heat-resistant properties throughout the life of the bag.
Delivering maximum protection for heavier lenses and the all-metal bodies often featured in current CSC and DSLR products, the rear, side and bottom faces of the bag have been strengthened with foam padding. This also adds structure and support, making sure the Hadley One retains its shape whether completely full or just carrying a small number of items – and safeguards any equipment carried in the outside pockets.
For additional customisation and storage capacity, external pockets can be fitted to the Hadley One, fastened to the thick leather layer to provide a secure mount for valuable accessories. The shoulder sling attachment has been riveted through the leather to form a core structure of the bag.
In response to numerous requests from Billingham owners, a durable luggage trolley strap, enabling the user to retain the bag over the handle of a trolley suitcase, has been integrated into the Hadley One. This practical feature allows the photographer to access the rear zipped pocket when mounted, while a weather-proof zip closure keeps all contents dry in inclement conditions.
The Hadley One is available in three FibreNyte and leather colour combinations: Sage & Chocolate, Khaki & Chocolate and All-Black.
Harry Billingham, director, commented, “We have been listening to feedback from our customers for more than four decades, and we continuously look for improvements in our products and processes to exceed the expectations of photographers. While fulfilling the essential requirements of protection and strength, we also manufacture to exact technical specifications and quality standards, giving owners the peace of mind that they can trust and rely on our bags to perform throughout their lifetime. With the Hadley One, we’ve responded to the suggestions of photographers from across the world, incorporating features that will make their daily working lives easier, particularly those travelling frequently from location to location.”
Billingham’s meticulous sourcing procedures ensure that all textiles and materials meet stringent criteria, guaranteeing that every bag is built from tested, innovative and durable components. As with all Billingham bags, the Hadley One is subject to extensive inspections and quality checks before being made available to purchase. Once complete, the bag receives its own laser-engraved label and individual serial number, allowing the owner to register the product, and enabling it to be identified and tracked throughout its lifecycle. The Hadley One comes with a five year guarantee.
An extensive range of matching accessories is available for all Billingham bags, including top-grain leather shoulder pads for added comfort when travelling and leather luggage tallies in various colour options.
