Smart AND Cool: Crumpler Camera Bags Add A Few New Notes

At the last major gathering of photographic manufacturers in Vegas, we checked in with the folks at Crumpler, to see how they may have improved on the cool factor of their well made camera bags.
They did it with a couple swift moves.
First of all, they have a sweet velcro “silencer” that has now been incorporated into all of their bags.
Basically if you think the loud RRRRRIIIIIPPPPPP!!!!!!, of the velcro on your camera bag may distract your subject, or your reveal your hidey-hole, or make the clergy at the wedding ask one more time for people to hold their peace, or come out with that objection, you know why this is important.

Watch the video for a clear, simple explanation.

Also in this video is one of the often overlooked camera accessories, the strap.
Yes, we may want to let everyone know what the brand of camera we’re using, but quite honestly, after a full day of cameras and lenses on your shoulder, a little relief is welcome. The design and structure of their Industry Disgrace strap works like crazy.
At the last SXSW festival in Austin, we had some heat and some solid long days cruising around to venues, and that strap, saved our necks. Seriously, we’re getting more.

The newly revised Crumpler site is also a welcome change, because as cool as the last one was, this is easier to use. When you want to look at a product and buy it, you gotta make it clear.

We hope you enjoy the Crumpler host on this video, Lindsay Cousley. He’s pretty funny actually in a dry sort of way.
