An upgraded version of the ‘Eventer’. This camera bag / laptop bag is perfect for protecting mirrorless cameras, rangefinders, and mid-sized DSLRs, with a dedicated padded area for up to 14” laptops.
The Eventer MKII includes a removable, padded insert. This is made from dense, fabric-covered ‘closed cell’ foam and provides impact protection on the front, back, base and sides. Like the bag itself, the insert is a little flexible.
Also included are two vertical, padded dividers and two small ‘flap’ dividers. You can use the vertical dividers to split the bag into columns and the flap dividers to stack gear within those columns. The exact arrangement that is possible for you will depend on the size of your gear.
As the insert is removable, you can convert the bag to a casual messenger bag in seconds.
The top-grain leather covering the external base on all sides helps to increase the longevity of the bag, as well as creating a luxurious look and feel.
Across the back of the bag is a handy extra storage pocket to easily access important documents without needing to open the main compartment. The pocket has a weatherproof zip, to help keep the contents safe and dry.
Also on the back of the bag is a luggage trolley retainer strap - a simple, easy feature that helps you to secure your bag to your suitcase when traveling through busy cities or airports.
Sewn into the back of the removable insert is a dedicated padded laptop slip, designed to fit up to a 14” laptop.
Please be aware:
• If you remove the padded insert, you will also be removing the laptop slip.
• Older, larger 14” inch devices may not fit, however almost all modern devices such as the 14” MacBook Pro (2021), 13.5” Surface Laptop 3, 13.5” Surface Laptop 4, ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 10 (14”), etc will fit.
• Almost all 13” devices fit too.
The main compartment has a dual, weatherproof zip, ensuring protection for the contents of the bag even when the main flap isn’t over the bag.
The dual zips allow you to access only part of the bag if you don’t want to open all of the main compartments.
The zips to the main compartment can be tucked behind either side of the padded insert, allowing you to easily dip in and out of your bag without risking scratching or damaging your equipment.
Quickly and easily open and close your bag using the quick-release front straps by simply pushing the front straps up and off the clogballs.
Many of our bags use this opening mechanism on the flap to access their main compartment, the Eventer MKII is the only bag that we currently sell that uses this functionality on the front pockets too.
Once the leather softens, you should be able to open the QRS straps one-handed and whilst wearing the bag.
The buckles allow you to fine-tune the ‘fit’ of the front pockets. You do not need to use the buckles to open the bag
An easy carry top handle is reinforced with fiberglass and has leather on the underside to provide extra comfort when carrying the bag using just the top handle.
The fiberglass reinforcement helps prevent the fabric of the bag from bunching when you pick it up by its top handle.
The generously sized front dump pockets are perfect for cables, film, spare batteries, and those little bits and bobs you want to keep separate, whilst also providing great extra storage space.
Strong leather side patches are sewn flat to the bag, this helps the shoulder sling to bear the weight of the bag. An ‘X’ pattern is sewn for additional reinforcement.
Please be aware that you cannot attach end pockets to this bag because the side patches are sewn flat.
There are only two differences between the Mini Eventer and Eventer MKII:
The Eventer MKII is made from a choice of Canvas or FibreNyte materials that are bonded to a polyester lining with a layer of butyl rubber, known as the ‘Stormblock’. This butyl layer is the reason why you will never need to re-proof your Billingham bag, the ‘Stormblock’ layer will keep your bag water-resistant for its lifetime.
An additional, invisible mildly hydrophobic coating on the surface of the fabric helps to reduce stains and maintain the aesthetics of the bag. Whilst the effectiveness of this coating reduces over time, the water resistance of the butyl Stormblock layer will not.
The top flap is made of the same three-layer waterproof fabric as the rest of the bag. It helps to prevent rain or snow from getting into the main compartment and provides extra protection to accompany that provided by the weatherproof zips.
