The L2 (previously called the 'Alice') is a favourite amongst many film photographers. Unique to the L2 is the way its extended sides   are integrated into the main flap so that they fold inward when it closes to provide extra protection from the elements. Using the L2 couldn’t be easier - because it has no zips, you simply open the bag using the Quick Release System straps and all your gear is at your fingertips.

The L2 features a main compartment with an integrated padded insert, plus an extra full length pocket at both the back and front of the bag (inside the same area as the main compartment). If you need more space, the L2 has leather side fittings at both ends designed to accept AVEA side pockets.

For added strength, we’ve reinforced the lower sides with more leather and extended it part-way along the underside to provide extra protection and more rigidity. Additionally, as yet another line of defence, brass feet are riveted to the thick leather.

Of course like all our camera bags - whether you chose canvas or FibreNyte - the fabric is bonded to butyl rubber for the ultimate in weather resistance. The bag is also made in England and covered by our 5 year manufacturers guarantee. 

The closest replacement for this bag is the Billingham S3

What is the difference between 'Canvas' and 'FibreNyte'?
In simple terms ‘Canvas’ or ‘FibreNyte’ refers to top layer of fabric on our bags – the facecloth.

‘Canvas’ is a mix of cotton and polyester. ‘FibreNyte’ refers to our face fabric that is completely synthetic. Canvas is hard wearing, FibreNyte is very hard wearing.

Both fabrics are bonded to a non-wicking polyester backing fabric with a middle layer butyl rubber – this rubber layer makes both fabrics equally (and very) waterproof. Water can’t get through that rubber layer.

Both fabrics have a similar weave - the FibreNyte looks similar to canvas. Canvas is slightly softer to the touch, FibreNyte is slightly rougher to the touch.

People tend to choose Canvas if they want the bag to age gracefully and look vintage over time. This is particularly true of people who chose our ‘Khaki Canvas’ fabric as this looks particularly lovely as it ages.

People tend to choose FibreNyte if they want the bag to look newer for longer or if they are particularly hard on their gear - for example by carrying the bag to work with them every day, doing a lot of hiking or filling it particularly full. If you are buying a black bag it’s particularly worth considering FibreNyte as it will stay looking blacker longer. Also Sage FibreNyte is particularly attractive as a colour – it’s probably the most popular colour among our staff!

 

Which shoulder pad fits this bag?
The 'SP15' and 'SP40' sizes both fit this bag. The 'SP15' has more grip whereas the 'SP40' has more padding. For most customers we recommend the SP40 shoulder pad.

 

Do I need a shoulder pad for this bag?
The shoulder pad isn't essential but can stop the strap from digging into your shoulder if you carrying heavy equipment inside the bag or carrying it for long periods. It can also reduce the chances of the bag slipping off your shoulder if you don't wear it across the body. Remember only the 'SP15' and 'SP40' sizes fit this bag. Buying it with the bag will save the postage cost of buying it separately later.
