The Rucksack 35’s classic styling, top grain leather and solid brass fixings make it a bag of true distinction. The careful thought that has gone into all aspects of its design also make it a perfect choice for those who want an alternative to a messenger style bag.
Similar to the Hadley Pro or Hadley Small the main compartment contains what we call a ‘Photographic Insert’ a padded container (with a lid) made of fabric covered foam that protects your camera equipment from all sides. Inside the padded insert we include two tall vertical dividers and one small ‘flap’ divider which attach to the walls of the insert with Velcro. This insert is removable with two simple pop-clips turning the Rucksack 35 into the ideal casual backpack.
It isn’t just this flexibility that marks out the Rucksack 35. Both the main compartment and the front pocket feature double zips allowing you to reach your camera quickly. Moreover both zips are protected from the rain – the main compartment has a rim of real leather trim extending from the main body of the bag over the zip. The smaller front pocket has a rain flap secured with our bespoke brass fastening (the clogball) for extra security whilst still maintaining ease of access.
Below the front pocket are two solid brass loops to attach our 5/8 tripod straps.
The Rucksack 35 has ergonomically designed shoulder straps lined with spacer fabric to promote breathability as well as having brass loops so the straps can be easily adjusted.
Finally like all Billinghams the bag features a three layer waterproof fabric to protect the bag and its precious contents during a downpour – after all it is made in Britain!
