I love Crumpler, each time I pass by their store I have this itch to go in and look. I adore the look of their products, funky yet durable. I recently got a new addition to my collection, its a medium Mild Enthusiast, in beech and brown variant, a bit more exciting than the black and grey one.
I’ve been using the Crumpler 5 Million Dollar Home then replace it with the 6 Million Dollar Home to keep my gear protected as well as looking great. I have nothing but good things to say about both bags but sometime sit does get quite heavy especially when walking around.
The bag can be used two ways, as a sling bag across the shoulder or a waist bag along the midriff. The two options makes it very flexible for both traveling as well as when it comes time to use the camera and accessories inside.
The front photo compartment opens up to reveal 3 rear compartments to put different accessories in like extra batteries and memory cards. There is also a a zippered compartment in front, which I use to store an extra point and shoot camera. There’s also a velcro divider that you can customized to fit your needs.
The front compartment holds my DSLR with 40mm lens, 18-70mm lens and a flash, with a bit of room to spare. Open the front fully and its clam shell design will prevent things from spilling out.
The bag has a 38mm wide adjustable strap that comes with an extra strong Quick2Flick buckle. The adjusted portions can are held nicely by elasticized holders (OC in me does not like flaps moving around).
The bag feels really durable, check out the double holders for the strap and accessory loop.
The front zippers even has padlock loops to help keep your things safer.
There’s a little surprise compartment at the back of the bag, perfect space for an iPad. This makes it much easier to carry everything around.
The Crumpler Mild Enthusiast (M) is the perfect compliment to the 6 Million Dollar Home, its more compact as well as lighter in weight. The bag sacrifices a bit in terms of padding but more than makes up for it with convenience and portability. The bag retails for P3,950 at local Crumpler stores, this is way cheaper than the AUD$ 120 or US$130.
