First of a new generation of Billingham bags designed with the aid of CAD and featuring the Billingham PressTop. The 206 was originally introduced in black with nickel-brass fittings but is now available in khaki and tan.

Strengths: Durable, classic looks
Weaknesses: Has to be price but it does last so ..
& yes you can't have lightning access to your equipment if the bag is properly secured
I simply love my bag 'cause I like anything that's classic & timeless. Be sure to take good care of your Billingham & it'll last for'ver. The materials are first-rate, leather should be nourished & brass polished. Ah yes you have to replace the inserts after a while though I think the new inserts last longer than the ones I have. Don't be deceived by its size, I can carry 2 bodies with 3 lenses (incl a 400mm f5.6), a flash, & still have some space for lense-cleaning equipment & filter-&-holder set. It also converts into a backpack !!
