This handsome bag is much deeper ( front to rear ) than many other bags, meant to accommodate DSLR’s with a more robust body than many of the slimmer cameras in the market. This means that you can put a large bodied camera, with lens attached right into the bag, and still have room to reach down and grab it when you need to. This is a relatively simple bag, meant to hold a good amount of gear, and yet still stay close to the body, and look good at the same time.
The first thing you’ll notice about the f 2.8 model is the distinctive ‘ squared-off ‘ look, which is created by the insertion of a pleat on either side of the main flap. Look inside and you’ll find a secondary, padded lid that’s tailored to keep the elements out. The bag is constructed of new Billingham material, FibreNyte, which is a combination of the traditional Billingham canvas, strengthened with a mix of nylon. Inside the main compartment of the bag there is a removable, amply padded, hard base. Two vertical dividers also come with each bag which can be placed in any position in the bag, and allow for an infinite interior configuration. In addition, there is an interior rear pocket, with the same dimensions as the outside, which is fully padded, again, for a variety of accessories.
The rear of the bag has a full length zip compartment, and is ideal for your passport, notebook, wallet, or other essential gear where quick access as well as security is important. The 2.8 will take Billingham's Avea side pockets and two “ D “ holes are cut into the front closure leather and will accept the Billingham Tripod Straps.
