From the Land Of Wonder, The Land Down Under : Crumpler Bags
(Remember: visit the our VIDEO page for ALL of our current videos)
Lot’s of choices out there for your camera bag needs. And each job, or outing calls for something different.
Many times, for the street shooter the goal is to NOT look like you have thousands of dollars worth of gear. Crumpler Bags fit that bill.
Originally a messenger bag company, they have an extensive line-up of cool innovations for the photographer.

Take a look at this video and pay special attention to a couple of things that we feel are incredibly smart:
The snaking velcro divider in the rolling bag allows you to custom secure and design the interior of your bag. Takes care of one of our main frustrations in bags. And in the last bag design, there is a velcro silencer for the more stealth photographers. the designers at Crumpler gave it a more whimsical bent, but the purpose is clear.Yes, we will be switching our straps to these new ones. You try hanging a DSLR with a 70-200 on your shoulder all day.
And as we always suggest: go to your local camera store and bring in your gear, and fit it to the bag you need. It’ll be a happier thing
in the long run.
Last word on Crumpler? Built solid, look cool.
