I think I'm going to try to sell my Crumpler bags; 8MDH, Brazillion Dollar Home, Karachi Outpost, so I can get just a nice big bag on wheels to carry all my heavy gear in. When I pack up my lenses and camera gear, its just too heavy for these Crumpler bags, they look awesome but just so heavy.

I think I want to roll now and have it all kind of "plane" ready, even though I don't travel much.
But I like having all the gear in compartments ready to be found easily. Something I'm not getting with my organization of my Crumplers.

I will be keeping my Crumpler Tallee (small walk around bag) and Dreadful Embarrassment (laptop) bags however.

I sold the 8MDH, now all I have are my Brazillion and Karachi and Tallee.
I'm going to get that ThinkTank Airport Takeoff so I wonder if I still really need these bags?

I've got two Crumpler bags.

1) Jimmy Bo 400
2) Messenger boy 4000

Both fantastic bags. I have used the Jimmy Bo more than the Messenger boy 4000 due to it being more portable and convenient on the short trips I've been on. However, I can only fit one lens which is not so good. However, with the Messenger Boy 4000 I can fit my xsi with kit lens, 50mm, spare battery, remote release, giottos rocket and possibly a Sigma 70-300 APO which I'm waiting for delivery soon.
I can post up some pics to show how these look if needed.


Canon rebel xsi (450D), Canon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS, Canon 50mm f/1.8 II, Canon 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5 USM, Canon 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS,
Tamron 55-200mm f/4-5.6, Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 APO, Raynox DCR-250, Yongnuo YN-465, Yongnuo YN-460 II

What bag would be suitable for a 7D with a 24-105 F/4L mounted plus other pieces of random junk like a Macbook, a drink, and some other stuff? I was thinking of the backpack but now I'm wondering if the shoulder bags would do the job just as well. I really want something that doesn't look like a camera bag. Thanks!

You could easily fit it all in the 7MDH but you would have to play with the dividers to make a pocket for the macbook. Other than that, have a look at the 8MDH which is an awful lot taller than the 7MDH but comes with a laptop pocket from the get go.

I don't think a 6MDH would be big enough for the laptop. Haven't tried it yet with mine though.

I finally sold all my Crumpler Bags, had some nice ones too...

But not because I don't like Crumpler, in fact, they are my favorite bag when it comes to design, style, looks, colors, etc...I just wasn't using them well as they didn't fit my shooting style. I will forever be a Crumpler fan, and will continue to follow their production and new models. I might buy some more in the near future, but for now I have sold my stock and will use ThinkTank bags.

If you are considering Crumpler, please don't take my liquidation sale as a negative. Crumpler makes an awesome product, I suggest you try them out. I was unfortunate to not have a local store that sold Crumpler, so I had to purchase and try out and then eventually decide to keep or not to keep.

Crumpler gets my vote as a great company and great bags.

My only gripe is I wished there were a way to purchase bags that are made for Europe and vice versa, I don't like that there are certain bags available in certain countries only...why not allow us to buy any bag they design?

I recently visited one of New York's two Crumpler retail stores. All the photo gear bags are laid out in its goodness, ready to fill with gear for a test run.

Yeah wished I had that luxury. Might have saved me from making a few extra purchases, but it was cool to get to know/hold the bags in person. They always exceeded my expectations when they arrived. I just couldn't get used to them with my style for some reason.

I have had 2 Crumpler before, 5 & 6 MDH. I have sold them both since they don't really suit my usage. IMO, there is some design flaw in this series of bag. But don't get me wrong, Crumpler makes exellent quality bags, very sturdy, lot of protection for the gears. They are also very stylish, not looking like camera bag is definitely a plus.

Yeah that is what initially attracted me to them, they were pretty discrete when it came to looking as if I had camera gear.

great thread

i was looking for some info about crumpler bags

i used to own the 5MDH for my 7D and i lost it :(

now i have a 5d Mark II with 28-70, and a flash, thinking of getting a second lens (a prime or maybe a zoom)

i was wondering if this would fit in a 6MDH because i don't wanna go for the 7 million, too big

thanks a million :)
