I like it so far. I think I need to rearrange some things to get it to fit properly but as of now it barely closes with all my equipment in it and I wanted a bag just to carry all my equipment.

It's currently filled with:
30D gripped with the 70-200 2.8 is attached to it.
the 50mm f/1.8 in a corner slot with the 18-55 kit lens stacked on top. The next corner slot has one of my two vivitar 285hv's in it.
On the other side of the camera, one slot has another 285hv.
Last corner has two PW's
small slot infront of the camera has a PW with a battery charger in it.
Back side has another charger.
The canon charger with business cards, wires, and other crap fit into the front pocket and the inside mesh pocket.

It's still pretty light as the only heavy thing in my kit is the camera and the big lens. It's fairly comfortable for the two minutes that I actually was carrying it. I can see it working much better if I put the camera in not attached to the 70-200. This is something I would do on days that I knew I didn't need my flashes and PW's.

Construction seems pretty durable from handling it so far. Hopefully it'll turn out to be a good bag.

The cost wasn't too bad. $128.50 before shipping and everything else.

huzzah for Aussie brands!

They're great bags though. I always stop to take a look at the bags and their catalogues when I go into mac shops.

Although it's pretty crude, I love their Aussie site. Careful of the red button
http://www.crumpler.com.au/
They've changed the music though, fairly similar, but it used to be a bloke kind of 'yodeling' some random words.

A mate of mine did a bit of work for Crumpler overseas in japan.
Wouldn't mind having one of their bags - but I'm torn between Crumpler, and Knog.

Village, what model is that? Are you able to slot the camera with the lens facing down, or are you laying it on its side within the bag? I want a soft walkabout bag to carry my 5D, 24~105IS, and one or more of my primes (24, 50, 85).

It's the 7 Million Dollar Home.

The camera and lens barely fits, but it's the 70-200 2.8, so the 5D and 24-105 IS should fit fine. It fits right in the middle so it doesn't throw anything off balance.

WTF? I know I posted something here.

I wrote previously that some one rearranged the partitions to fit in a MBP, so it's possible, but I wouldn't feel comfortable with all the gear I had crammed in there.

My PW's and flashes are pretty big, so finding another pouch to use for at least the PW's on one of the bag's external straps may help.

It's a nice looking bag. I may try out the smaller $6M version for my walkabout kit.

Happy to be back to a Mac

I need a bag and was looking at the Lowe Pros, but I like crumplers better.

I only have the 350d and kit lens right now, but I want room to grow. Plus I need a case for my sony palmcorder so I might as well put it all in one bag. Not sure which crumpler to look at.

The 7MDH may look huge, but if you're not carrying it everywhere with you, like a man bag or something, then it's not bad. Like I posted above, it barely fits all my equipment.
