This is my third Billingham review, and my first chance to review one of the 'normal' bags, the Mini Eventer. However, calling the Eventer series normal isn't quite accurate. It looks similar to the Hadley series, but this is Billingham's take on a premium shoulder bag. The first thing you'll notice is the leather bottom of the Eventer bag. Then you may notice the lack of branding except for a small green label on the side. You may even notice the chunky SP50 shoulder pad and non-removable shoulder strap. What's up with this bag?
If you currently have a Hadley Pro Small or Hadley Pro 2020, is it worth 'upgrading' to the Mini Eventer or the standard Eventer? It depends on what your priorities are. Since I don't have a Hadley to compare against, just for sizing, I decided to compare it against the popular Wotancraft Scout. It's similar in size (it's slightly bigger) and functionality. The design languages are very different, so I don't think photographers are comparing these two bags. This is just my first look at the Billingham Mini Eventer, so wait for my full review, as well as my What's In My Bag series.
