Nice, I wish Crumpler came out with a backpack like Lowepro did. I just love the colors, material, and design compared to most camera bags.

This bag is truly a tank. The build quality is so good and the bag is so sturdy! Crumpler sure knows how to make bags. I'm not sure what you meant by "backpack like Lowepro", but my only grunt is that this bag (nor does any of the other Crumpler backpacks) does not have an easy draw access like the Lowepro Primus AW...

^Exactly, like the slingshots, flipsides, and fastpacks. *sigh*

Oh well, about to add a new Crumpler messenger to the mix. So excited!

You know what though? I'd rather take a pack that doesn't resemble a camera bag over one with a quick draw compartment that screams "I have thousands of dollars worth of equipment in me".

The Whickey & Cox looks more like a chute pack on one's back than anything else.

^Oh most definitely. I'd love to have one of their backpacks but it wouldn't be a camera bag one, one of the everyday ones instead. If I got the next bag I wanted, I'd be accused of having a murse. Might still if I get the Budgie Smuggler. Just carry camera and one lens everywhere, if the bag is small enough.

Do you really think anyone is fooled by what bag you carry when you have $2000 hanging from your neck on a camera strap? A thief that stupid is already behind bars. The rest know what you have no matter what you put it in.

Not necessarily. When you have something like the W&C on your back and a camera strapped on your neck, the pack looks like a regular day pack with some assorted-worthless stuff in it (lunch, rain coat, bottle of watter, etc.). On the other hand, when you carry around a big nice CAMERA-dedicated shoulder bag with a nice LOWEPRO logo on it....

...you can see where I'm going with this.

Plus... the W&C has rear access... let's see the sucker who'll try to get to my gear...
