The S2 is the smallest in the S Series range. Its small size makes it perfect for those who want to travel light with just a mirrorless, micro 4/3s or other smaller form factor camera and a couple of small lenses - like all Billinghams though it has a number of big features that make it a great fit for those who are serious about photography.
Take for example the quick release Clogball fastening that allows you to open the main covering flap with just one hand, the zip on the main flap that has two zippers to open from either end or the full length front dump pocket for a phone or roll of film. Each feature carefully thought out so that the Billingham blends easily into your shooting routine.
Not only that but the TukTop feature means that both sides of the main zipper can be tucked behind the bag's internal front and rear dividers, allowing you to pull equipment in and out of the bag with ease during a shoot. Of course those internal padded dividers also create two thin pockets inside the main compartment, suitable for a travel guide or camera batteries - this in addition to the discrete zippered pocket on the back of the bag ideal for passports, memory cards etc.
Also included are repositionable, removable padded Velcro® dividers to separate your camera from spare lenses or whatever else you might want to carry on your travels. And if those travels take you through some rain then it'll be you that gets wet and not your camera - because just like all Billinghams the S2 is made with top quality three layer waterproof fabric to keep your gear dry whatever the weather.
Finally the main compartment is padded on all four sides and has a removable 25mm, fabric covered, deep foam base - meaning that your camera will be protected from bumps and knocks. The S2 may be one of the newest additions to our range but we are confident that it will stand the test of time, giving you many long years of service.

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 choose 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!
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.
Some of your bags have removable padded inserts. Does this bag have a removable padded insert?
No - on this bag the padding is sewn into the walls of the bag. However, the padded dividers are removable (they attach inside with Velcro®).
