Since the Bag Review Thread has died a bit and pics removed, I decided to start this thread. Also, my question for my review to be stickied has yet to be answered, Crumpler has been a bag with FAQ's. I think Jon should get a Domke thread started as well.

First, let me present, the CRUMPLERS!!!

Ok, so one's not there. That's the one for my mp3 which is in the Jeep. Aniwho, I use 3 batteries in the one and the other you can see holds AA's, CF cards, or since I only have one extra at the moment, monopod plate.

When I carry my stuff in the 5MDH, this actually works well for 10-20 and nifty storage. I actually used it once to just carry the 10-20 with my camera and 18-50 around my neck. Didn't have a small enough bag so that's how I took it. It was fun.

Looks like the 5MDH is for me... no wonder you're trying to get rid of the Lowepro. Trying to make up for all the Crumplers!

I thought the 5MDH wouldn't be great after getting it and was about to resale it. Then I found it holds my much more preferred lens, the 70-200, and decided to keep it.

Shame... That's what I'm looking for... 7MDH is just a little too big. What's in the 7MDH? Bigma and 70-200f2.8?

I also love my 7 million
in mine i have in the middle, the 40D with grip and 24-70L 2.8 attached
right hand side i have the 70-200L 2.8 IS upright and the 580ex flash
which leaves me room for 2 more lenses on the other side. Hopefully the 17-40 will go into one of those slots shortly.
The front section i have my spare batteries and memory cards.
Zip pocket under the cover i have my camera manual, flash manual cables and filters.

I have just ordered the crumpler whickey and cox backpack

love crumpler bags as they also look damn good

I like the look of my 7 million dollar home. I am also happy that it can fit a lot of gear inside. However, the padding on the shoulder stap slides easily. Also, my shoulder really feels the weight after a short while if I fully load the bag like it was shown above.

nice review! i think you just made me upgrade my 4mdh for the 5mdh! my 4mdh has been perfect when i just want to carry light with the 30D/17-55. but there are times when i want to carry a flash or the 70-200. based on your picture with the sigma 70-200 and 20D, the 5mdh will do its job....as i still want the smallest bag possible!

I was surprised when I got it to fit like that. Another reason I stop using my grip. It just took up space and isn't really needed. Maybe on a Rebel since they are so small.

These will fit if you don't put hood on them. The reason is the 17-55IS hood is a lot wider thanthe sigma 18-50 hood.

I can barely fiit 30D+17-55IS hood reverse with 85F1.8 hood reverse on the side.
