    Question Crumpler bag advice needed

    Hey Guys,
    I'm thinking about buying a Crumpler bag - 7 Million dollar Home.
    At $140.00 Aus its not cheap but looks as though its worth the money.
    Anyone out there that has one i would be interested to hear what you think before i part with my hard earned dosh !!!. I dont have a lot of gear but looks like it has plenty room in it.
    To busy at the moment to look atem in the flesh so to speak.

    Regards to all

    i have the 7 million dollar. its a great bag.. unobtrusive, easy to access, can customise the inside flaps too. tis also quite hardy. only thing to note is it isnt really waterproof - theres a gap between the flap and the bag itself at the sides.

    it can actually carry a decent amount of stuff.. my usual kit that i carry is either -

    1 DSLR with 24-70 lens, speedlite flash, 70-200, and can squeeze in a 50mm too.
    1 dslr with 24-70, 1 film body with 50mm, flash or 70-200.
    1 dslr with 24-70, rangefinder wiht 50mm, 1 additional lens or flash.

    unless u really want to carry a lot of lenses, you can probably fit all u need for a days shoot.

    theres a separate velcro pouch that i usually put in CF cards batteries etc, and theres a separate net compartment in the main bag - i usually put blower, lens wipes, filters in there.

    the 7 is better value than the 6 million which is a bit small. and the 8 is just a bit too big.

    AUS 140 is a bit pricey. over here is about AUS 121.

    Own a crumpler 7 mill as well. Nice casual looking and good compartments for camera body and at least 2 prime and a telephoto len plus a flash unit. Got it for $140 from tk. Was using a lowepro which is equivalent good but the design and storage of 7 mill attracted me.

    Disadvantages: no waterproof but i guess thats very secondary.

    you will have to mount the 17-35 with the camera. that will go in the main middle compartment. the 70-300 will take up another comparttment. the flash and the 10-20 can go in the last compartment.

    the only authorised dealer is at wheelock as far as i know. so not much choice in terms of getting the best deal.

    Hey Thanks to all who replied. I dont intend to carry a lot of junk. I prefer to travel light.
    But i guess they dont look like a camera bag at first glance, like the Tamrac'sLowepro ect with the brand all over. Ah still debating wether to pay the $140.00 on Ebay. Maybe i'll look around maybe get it cheaper ??
    I there's any Aussies that might now of anywhere cheaper i might get one aprt from Ebay let me know.

    Add stuff to your bag to make it distinguished from others.
