We recommend first-hand inspection of the Billingham range of bags. Only by actually examining the bags is it possible to fully appreciate the preoccupation with excellence and attention to detail that makes a Billingham bag so special. The full range of Billingham bags can be viewed in our recently-extended showroom in Leamington Spa.

First conceived in the late 70's, the Packington's design has stood the test of time, and it's still one of Billingham's most popular models. Not only is it the stylish and comfortable way to carry cameras, laptops or video cameras, it also doubles as a roomy travel bag - the ideal companion to accompany you on a voyage around the world in eighty days, or journeying from pole to pole.
Perhaps one of the most cavernous bags in the Billingham line, the Photo Packington Serves as a great photo gear bag, (Photo as well as Video) laptop/briefcase, and travel bag, all in one. First conceived in the 70's, this bag has certainly stood the test of time, and is still one of the more popular bags in the line.
Its extra tall height will accommodate a D-SLR with a fairly long zoom lens attached to be placed " lens down " into the bag, ready for quick access. The main compartment zips closed for protection and security. In addition, this is an ideal multi-system bag, able to carry two (2) camera bodies, two to three extra lenses, flash, cables, connectors, memory device, etc. The side pockets are permanently attached to the Packington, and are secured via robust color coordinated snaps. These side pockets are ideal for mP3 players, a small bottle of water, or additional photo/travel gear.
The two (2) front pockets are fashioned from a single piece of material, sewn vertically, (thus making the two pockets) to provide enough room to fit an extra large paperback, or additional photo gear. These front pockets are closed by heavy-duty zip pulls, which insures added security. Leather 'finger tabs 'on either side of the front pockets allow for quick zipping
The top protective rain flap cover covers the front pockets and secures to the front of the bag with Billingham's Famous Quick Release System (QRS). Brass feet and leather-covered corners help protect the bag from scuffs and bruises.
