It is an embarassing situation I am in.....

(1) Bought the Tallee yesterday. At home, I shortened the shoulder strap to a suitable length but then I realised that I dont know where I can slip/hide the excess length.

(2) Then, there is this strap with one end of the buckle on the shoulder strap. I was told by one kind CSer that it is needed if I want to turn the bag to a back pack. If not, I can always hide it under the shoulder pad.

(3) About the shoulder pad itself and based on the attached pic, should it be worn with the logo facing outside or the reverse?

As you can see, the crumpler is a headache for me.:embrass: . If there is a correct way for me to use the bag, please enlighten.

Thanks a lot.

(1) just tie it up upon on itself OR hunt around and buy some nifty gadget to help suck up the extra length (function similar to those circular earphones keeper-coilers) anyway i have not come across such nifty gadgets yet.

(3)who cares!!! unless u r a fashion police :cool:

U are not alone....
After I bought my crumpler and went back home... I realised that I dun really know how to wear it.....
So I went back to CP to ask the staff to show me how to wear....
So maybe U can do that too....

Anyway... juz to let U know that the padded thingy with the logo is NOT supposed to be on Ur shoulder but its supposed to be in front at Ur chest...... then the extra strap with the clip is juz to secure Ur bag so that it doesn't swing that much......

Originally, the extra strap was made for bike messengers so that they could have their bag secured on their back.

Ummm after slinging the back across your shoulders, the strap should run from quite low under your other arm to attach to the main strap somewhere around your chest area. It should look like an inverted Y from the front if do you this right.

though it's not supposed to be on shoulder, but i think it's up to the person. i still prefer it to be on my shoulder than chest, coz i seldom use the 3rd leg :p

go to the Features Section and see under the question "What is the cross strap for?" Click the link for cross strap.

This is how they said a messenger bag should be worn.

Hope this helps :)

Cheers
Thanks deep5.

So, the Crumpler's Tallee is supposed to be sling across the shoulder?

Yes, a messenger bag is supposedly worn like dat. It is the whole purpose of its invention.

U might have seen bikers wearing messenger bag in Jackie Chan's movie " The Tuxedo" or the TV series "Dark Angel ".

For the extra length.. mebbe u can fold it and tied it using those rubber band thingy that girls (..and long haired dudes) use to tie their hair? They come in different colors.

Cheers

Both are basically just slingbags.

I dun think the problems are that big that u can't use the bag absolutely.

Enjoy your bag.. :) now u can look even cooler when hunting photos :cool:

heh thankfully someone showed me how to carry a crumpler if slung across chest together with the third leg..... hmmm but personally i find this position a bit uncomfortable bec of the pressure on the chest..... but then again it keeps slipping off my shoulders if i carry the normal way....
