I´m looking for a small bag to use when my Lowepro Vertex backpack is to large.

The bag must have room for
D800 with 24-120VR mounted
70-200VRII (or a SB900 dependent of trip)
Charger and batteries
Ipad


At the moment the list is narrowed down to two bags

Billingham Hadley Pro
Thinktank Retrospective 7

Anyone that has experience with these bags?

IMHO,I would think a Billingham screams "STEAL ME" whereas something from ThinkTank's Retrospective line would be a lot less noticable.

I just bought black Billingham Hadley Pro, but I will receive it only after couple of days so can't say anything yet.
My current bag is ThinkTank Retrospective 5, so unless you are in a hurry, I will be able to provide comments about build quality differences etc. next week.

In Retrospective 5 I have carried for instance D700 + 24-120/4 + SB700 + charger + batteries + cleaning kit.
Based on this, I guess your gear will easily fit to Retrospective 7.

I´ll wait and are looking forward to your experience with the Hadley :-)
I don´t think the "steal me" look will be a problem in Norway (or Finland)
