Crumpler Backpack helps:
hi guys, bought my crumpler backpack 2 days ago....
anyone noe whats the best method to use it?
Its superbly designed until i dun even noe how to use some of the functions..
Apparently the part separating the bottom from the top half is also openable, so u can put in SUPER long lens...
but i dun noe the optimum way of opening it...
HECK i didnt evne noe how to use the '3rd leg' securing strap of my old crumpler sling bag!
neither did i noe the best way to tighten the crumpler strap...
Anyone own crumpler backpack? im using the farmer's double

so fast ? i got it like a month ago.. like nearly once it hit the shelves.. haha
hmm.. i thought it's pretty straightforward ? just open.. basically you will NOT be able to access the top compartment from the bottom half.. you can just adjust it higher that's all. (if i remember correctly)
best way to tighten it is just to hop a little and pull the straps lah then it'll tighten.. ?

i need this sort of bag for going holiday lah...
it looks very much like those PARACHUTE packs that those skydivers wear...
there are smaller versions as well though
1. oh i was talking abt lastime the crumpler SLING bag strap and how to titen...
2. actually can leh, if u look at the bottom of the TOP compartment, u will realise there is velcro and if u remove it, u can actually access the bottom from the TOP... supposedly for LONG lens...
3. Hmm how do u adjust the top or bottm compartment higher? (are u tokking abt just removing the camera "padding bag" and re-velcro it higher?
