    Bag Week Review: Crumpler Pinnacle of Horror

    This is my new go-to bag. That’s saying something, too. Despite reviewing dozens of computers bags during my tenure at TechCrunch, I’ve stuck with the Ogio HipHop for years. It’s made four CES trips, three to CEDIA, a few E3s and countless random flights around the country. I love it. But now it’s just hanging in my closest. The Crumpler Pinnacle of Horror now hangs on… Read More

  • Bag Week Reviews: Crumpler Boston Heist Duffel Bag

    Short version: Do you have a need to transport a small dog and a notebook in the same bag? Because this bag is up to the task. (Note: I’m not recommending you carry your dog in this

  • Bag Week: Crumpler King Single

  • Bag Week: Crumpler 8 Million Dollar Home

    Finding a good multipurpose bag can be difficult. The Crumpler 8 Million Dollar Home is a good example of a shoulder style camera bag with optional laptop storage.

  • Two new bags from Crumpler

    Crumpler bags are often better known for their fun Aussie looks; confoundingly silly names; and playfully obtuse catalogue descriptions; than they are for their pure functionality to photographers. While that doesn’t change a lot with their latest offerings from PMA 2008, they’re still fun bags (hee-hee) nonetheless and that’s important too, ya know? On the one hand… Read More

  • Crumpler gets Squirrely at Macworld

    Crumpler makes great gear and their booth is always top notch. This year they’ve got some crazy theme that I don’t quite understand, but it’s certainly eye catching and the best of the bunch. For Macworld they’ve launched the Squirrel line and they’re bigger, better and more kickass then anything else out there. There are five different models, which are named… Read More

  • Crumpler's Regifting Day

    Even though “Seinfeld” has been off the air for over nine years, I still reference it quite a bit. Who doesn’t celebrate Festivus or quietly chant “serenity now”? I find myself telling friends and family, ‘no soup for you’, all the time. Did you know that of the 60 million Seinfeld earned this year most of it came from royalties? “Seinfeld”… Read More

  • CG Holiday 2007 Recommendation: Crumpler's Brazillion Dollar Home

    <img src=" Isn't that what they always say? Yeah, it irritates the feck out of me, too. I was in the market for a camera bag a little while back and I figured I'd just grab one of Crumpler's 'buckets' and drop it into my Barney Rustle Blanket. It was perfect, I didn't have to spend a whole lot of money on a… Read More
