    crumpler's material is first class, i ever got water literally splashed onto my crumpler, everything inside is still nice and dry. but i think the product is overpriced.

    If you're after a sling bag, then I've got just the thing for you. I bought a Nikon branded bag from China town about 2 months ago that is still in mint condition. I will outgrow the bag pretty soon and since all my gear is canon, I actually feel like a double-agent .

    I won't however be ready to sell until after I come from China in a couple of weeks. If you haven't bought a bag by then, keep an eye on the BS forum for mine.

    If you like good material and all, why not the classic billingham bag?

    www.billingham.co.uk

    Fantastic bag!

    That seems like quite good. However, what are the flaws? all-weather proofing? toughness?
    Must have all these, quite important especially when u bringin your beloved gadgets out.

    As for Billingham, I was looking at the 445 model or th Hadley large man. Super nice!

    Yeap... itz comes padded at e bottom half w adjustable compartment like a regular camera bag n e back (all e way up). Only e front of e top half is not padded w compartment except for e notebook part. Datz y I hav to put in my old unused padding.

    S for waterproofing, havent had e chance to try it out. Anyways, whether itz waterproof or not, I never compromise with it. I hav a Lowepro all-weather too but I dun take it for granted.

    How much are you looking at? for such a kit, a crumpler sling might only cost about S$100 odd right?
