“What the? Is this a kiddie bag?!” was my first impression when I saw the Crumpler 5 Million Dollar Home Backpack. This little bag is one of the creative attempts of Crumpler to diversify their Million Dollar Home (M$H) camera bags line. Previously I reviewed their regular 4M$H shoulder bag then the new 3M$H sling bag. Now how does the M$H translate as a backpack? I put the camera backpack to a test on several trips to see how effective and functional it is.

Bold, daring and funky are some words I would describe Crumpler. Enter 2013, those qualities led Crumpler to expanded their Million Dollar Home (M$H) collection to more than just shoulder bag types. With the rising popularity of compact camera systems or mirrorless cameras, Crumpler knew these new breed of cameras needed a new home, hence the new 3 Million Dollar Home Sling Bag. Let’s look into this compact yet functional camera bag that sports the Crumpler’s daring character.

One of the most beloved bags and accessories brand, Crumpler, known for its bold and unique design while remaining functional and sturdy ,opens another flagship store to widen its reach for the discerning customers who “Know how to live!”. The Crumpler Concept Store at Shangri-la Mall’s new East Wing officially opens to the public. It’s not just an ordinary store as it’s their biggest one yet. I was simply amused by the interiors, designed by award winning architects Ryan Russel and Byron George. The store is spacious, with numerous straps hanging from the ceiling creating a stimulating pattern and the mirror on one side made it feel like the store was larger as it seems.

Compact and Sturdy Crumpler The Squid

I have a packable jacket, a packable pants and it’s no surprise I now have a packable stow-away bag in the form of Crumpler The Squid. I got lucky enough to win this new product by just following CrumplerPH on twitter (which you should do too!) so I wasn’t expecting much about it. I’ve had a couple of Crumplers already like their old 3 Million Dollar Camera Bag and had the Customary Barge Backpack for a while, so I can attest to the quality of the brand along with their spunky designs. I took The Squid to my recent trip to the cool highlands of Sagada to test how tough this sack is on actual travel.
