Constructed from ultra-hard wearing and weather resistant FibreNyte material - a synthetic alternative to canvas – and leather trim, Billingham 07 Series bags meld modern materials and know-how with classic design elements, forging ultra-durable, retro-chic bags which excel in every way. Each bag comes with an SP50 shoulder pad and an adjustable and removable padded SuperFlex partition which allows you to configure the bag to your own needs and give your camera the best possible level of protection. The PressTop design features a weather-proof top flap which shields a double-puller zip arrangement which allows rapid access to your camera or accessories.

Designed for Life
The protection provided by a soft bag comes about through the careful use of closed-cell foams and the inherent pliability of the Billingham FibreNyte. SuperFlex inserts keep cameras and lenses protected and separated from each other. We have designed them in such a way that they simply move out of the way when pushed, allowing the bag to mould itself to the wearer's shape. Stiffening and shape are given to the bag by the way we cut and stitch the material so that they naturally hold their shape.
Billingham cut the panels to take advantage of the material's ability to withstand the stresses inflicted on it by the weight of cameras and passage of time. Not only are our bags strong and durable, they are also genuinely soft and will mould snugly to your body.
The materials used in the Billingham bags
Billingham choose the very best materials and use them in a way that takes maximum advantage of their natural properties, then manufacture the product to precise quality standards. That's why Billingham bags have solid brass fittings, top-grain leather, the best threads and fittings and a reputation for quality products.
As well as working closely with suppliers to improve each aspect of a material's performance, Billingham also co-operate with them to ensure that every delivery of material to their workshop meets exacting quality specifications. They are are members of SATRA, an international organisation who help us ensure the materials and production methods we use result in the highest quality products. Hard wearing materials can be abrasive and sometimes damage clothing, so our canvas has been chosen to avoid these problems.
Billingham are always looking for better ways of doing the things we do by improving our materials and processes. Many of their products have been subject to change over time as suppliers have found better ways of doing the things they do. Billingham customers demand tougher bags that are also lighter - New and exclusive to Billingham; FibreNyte is recommended to Professional Photographers who need a tough, hard wearing fabric for extreme conditions.
The material is purely synthetic, it has excellent abrasion resistance while remaining supple. FibreNyte is a high performance, super durable fabric which is bonded to a polyester lining using Billingham StormBlock butyl rubber and weighs 10% less than traditional canvas. FibreNyte is more colourfast because the dyes can be bonded to the material more easily. The black stays black and the Khaki stays Khaki. The material offers every benefit of traditional canvas, with advancements suited to modern life and ways of working.
