That's right! Another review and this one get's a bit steamy with Brian's Hot Tub. A gorgeous older bag from the one buckle MDH times, it's quite large...but then again it'd have to be to hold some fine pieces of glass. Like all Crumplers, it's made to hold and the nylon is gorgeous. It's a back opener which is great for when I travel overseas, main reason I chose this. We'll start from the outside and work our way in.

There are 3 outside pockets which are surprisingly roomy. They expand outward from the bag which makes sense because inward would be to that large shell of an insert and wouldn't allow for much room. As you can see, the side pocket is perfect for my stainless steel 18oz bottle. The others are just as roomy which will hold a backpack cover (which I plan to get), gloves, cards, flash diffuser, or whatever may be to your liking. It's great for those little extras.

Now to peek inside. It's like Bag porn, just a peek at the goods at first before you unzip the flap to reveal all!

The laptop insert is clearly for a 15.6" laptop as tested with my wife's laptop. I own a 14" which is great since it leaves extra space. I can nicely fit my laptop, mouse, and charger (necessities to bring on ship) in the same area and a CF reader in the pocket up front along with pens and whatnot if you actually carry that stuff.

The bag comes with tons of dividers and I'm not sure what to do with all of them, especially the redheaded step-children but I'm sure I'l find a use for the gingers. The bottom corners are just flaps which hold CF cards, batteries or whatever. Just a nice space for the little things.

Here we have it with my bit of gear. Slave flashes flanking left, 40D w/ 70-200 up the middle, 20D w/ 17-50 OS up the right side with a 430EX behind it. Like some may recognize from the Flipsides, a pouch at the top for again, whatever. I threw in some remotes and flash accessories. Stuff I wouldn't hurry to get to.

But there you have it, a fun time in Brian's Hot Tub. It's large and in charge and shows that ebay is awesome! You can find anything! For me, I will only take one camera and flash with my trinity of lenses when deployed allowing for a lot of extra room for anything else. So that's another and hopefully final Crumpler review from me. I take that back...I got another small bag coming in but it's tiny. Basic stuff...will post in the Crumpler review area only.

Nice review.

A bit off topic but did you make that bounce card yourself? If so, template or info on how to make one? I've been trying out my own that resembles A Better Bounce Card (ABBC)
