hi, has anybody used the crumpler bucket before? it's an insert for the crumpler messenger bags, enables us to us the messenger bags to hold camera equipment. just wanted to know if it's worth the money
I have the bucket for my wonder weenie.
so far it's been worth the money for me. It's good for carrying light equipment and can take normal bumping around quite well.
Holds about 1 body(20D)+2lens+flash and assorted accessories, depending on how you pack.
Of course, there are bigger buckets that can hold more but that will also depend on the size of your messenger bag.
I had a Stealth Reporter, bought a bucket, sold the Stealth Reporter, bought the Stealth Reporter again, and sold the Stealth Reporter and i'm still using the bucket. I guess the bucket really does excel in the convenience part as i can still carry other stuff in my Crumpler bag with 1 350D body, 4-5 lenses with some accessories. And if i do need more space, i just take it out andcarry it on its own and dump more stuff in my bag. So for me, i like it.
