Customisation Service

We are now trialing a limited customisation service for our bags. While the options are limited we hope that they prove useful for many customers. We hope to offer more options in future.

Please note that all custom made bags are non-returnable and non-refundable - although they are still covered by our 5-year manufacturers guarantee in case repairs are needed due to defects in workmanship or materials. WE HAVE TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED OUR CUSTOM SERVICE TO DUE TO LACK OF FACTORY CAPACITY WHILE WE HAVE SOCIAL DISTANCING MEASURES IN THE FACTORY TO PROTECT OUR STAFF FROM COVID.

If you would like one of these customisations please do NOT order through this website. Instead contact us here and let us know - we can then advise you how to proceed. Custom orders cannot be taken over the phone or in stores.

Please note we sometimes have to pause this service if the factory is very busy - in that circumstance we won't be able to take your order. Availability of the service may also be limited by shortages of materials.

All custom colour bags are non-returnable and non-refundable and must be paid for in full before we will begin production. When we do offer the service manufacture usually takes 3-4 weeks. Therefore if you do want this service please order in good time.

This service is only available direct from Billingham - not through retailers. Although if we have produced that bag in that colour in the past some retailers might have stock - in that case it would be best to order from them rather than wait for us to make it.

From previous investigations we know the following extra conditions apply:

  • 7-Series bags (207 and 307) can only be made in FibreNyte.
  • The 72 can't be made in Imperial Blue Canvas.
  • Extra limitations might arise during discussions for bags we haven't made before in the colour chosen - usually due to availability of the lining fabrics that would be needed for particular bags.
