Anybody have a 6MDH that's wants to upgrade to a 7MDH?
I had a 5MDH and upgraded my gear, but I found that the 7MDH is a bit too big and doesn't allow me to bring my camera bag everywhere with me; as I did with my 5MDH.
I'd be willing to trade my 7MDH for a 6MDH + cash for me to ship to you.

i have the older model 6mdh
went to crumpler store to check out the new styles
been wanting to get the 7mdh but its a little too big for me

i walked out of there with a newer style 6mdh

so now i have the old and new..haha

i thought long about it in the store...
and i remember how much i complained about my 6mdh being too heavy when fully packed...what more with more space

Thanks! it was between this color or the Grey/Red combo! i thought the brown would be more suited for 'this-is-not-a-camera-bag' walking around :)

I had the exact same decision to make. I almost went with the brown but my wife pushed for the silver since it "goes" with more ;)

When I bought mine (4MDH) they had red, blue, black and brown. The red and the blue were a bit too much for me and the black seemed a bit dull so I went with the brown colour. They didn't have the silver colour at the time.

i agree, the red and blue are a little too bright for my tastes.

the silver/red combo is pretty nice though! unfortunately, when i bought my bag, the only silver/red one was the display model and i wanted a virgin bag...brown bag it is!

Yeah, I think the black, silver and brown are all good choices if you don't want to stand out too much. If there was a navy blue or darker blue I might have gone with it.

Definitley agree with the color choices of going with brown or black. The red and blue are a bit too much on the bright side. But i cant complain, i love the 6MDH, its very comfortable to walk around with.

I just bought a black one last night...I almost went for red but chickened out. If the blue was a better shade, I probably would have gone for it.

Thanks to the many reviews and feedback; finally took the plunge. Ordered the 6MDH yesterday, and it just showed up. So far, very impressed with it, build quality is top notch and its actually a bit smaller then i thought it would be (externally), and looking inside, I think I might be able to squeeze the lenses I'd want into it without issue :D

Glad you're enjoying yours.

Just to update mine, I am able to squeeze my 100-400L with the hood if I put it in before the 5D 2 with 24-70L mounted. I can't remove the 100-400L without removing the body but I wouldn't need to do that.

are the crumpler 5 and 6 mdh's sturdy enough to fly with? or do you guys pack all your camera gear in a hard case to travel and then transfer to the crumpler? Of course i'm referring to carry on luggage. :)

I've flown with the 6 and 7 MDH with no worries. Both fit under the seat in front of me without a problem.
