Two weeks ago, I was searching for crumpler 5MDH, and Amazon has it listed as used with cosmetic blemishes (to be fulfilled by amazon warehouse)... but heck, for $38 - I went for it. Now came the box... quite small and light...hmmm. I opened the box, definitely not the 5MDH that I ordered. First thing I did was checked my order history and click the VIEW ORDER link - still showing 5MDH photo.
So I went back to my car and checked the package... item is in a plastic with a sticker on it... first white sticker says "CRUM BUNDLE RED - L" ( I had to read from the back) and over it they put a yellow sticker that says " Crumpler 5MDH shoulder photo bag (dark red/red/blue)" :rolleyes: Oh, btw, it is not used ... but it is the BUNDLE which cost $26.00....

Sorry, just had to vent... now I feel better... and can email them now.

That's a bit odd - sounds like someone stuffed up moreso than some deliberate attempt to fool you as it's a bit... obvious..

I'll agree here. Looks like someone just goofed. I also ordered a 5MDH and a 7MDH from the warehousedeals site and both came in looking like new. Probably just a one-time mistake.

Ok, just got a reply from them... yes, a mistake and a $5 off on next purchase. Just feel bad that I missed out on a good deal or maybe that offer was the first mistake on their end - $38 for a used 5mdh. Again if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is > this goes for me :cry:

Just keep checking back. I've seen several Crumpler bags on the warehousedeals site. They usually run about 50% off too. I'm sure they'll add more.
