Sometimes known as the ' System Case "Billingham" ' this elegant bag has been made in collaboration with Leica. It is the perfect size for storing and carrying Leica M rangefinder and similar sized cameras. Because of its flexible design with two padded, adjustable and removable dividers it can store either 2 Leica M cameras with lenses attached or 1 Leica M camera with 3 lenses. It can also be used to carry similar sized cameras such as the Leica Q or Leica TL. For protection and flexibility the main compartment of the bag is padded with an extra thick and removable fabric covered foam basepad.
Its fabric is made of two layers bonded together with a Stormblock butyl rubber lining - this makes it exceptionally weather resistant. The fittings and details are made with the finest top grain leather and solid brass for exceptional longevity.
Its front pocket provides room to store a Leica SF 24D flash, rolls of film and other accessories. An extra pocket inside the back of the main compartment is an ideal place to store maps or passports etc.
As with all our bags it is made in England.
