No..no..no, I am not being confused to my Crumpler bag review.
Yes…yes..yes, I’ve already gotten one of the Crumpler Million Dollar Home series – The Five Million Dollar Home.
Yes…yes…yes, please let me say it again 🙂 I have just had another one of the Million Dollar Homes!
The Six Million Dollar Home was chosen for my latest Christmas’s gift by a very good friend of mine who (probably) thought that I would not be fulfilled enough to having only one shoulder bag…hahahahahahaha. Well, the idea has been proved recently that it was really right! – I’m telling you how….
The 6MDH came into me in brown/green colors. Its overall design is the same as the 5 Million Dollar Home. There is just a dimension of its which is bigger than the Five one and also more release flaps inside of the bag. Two large and four small sizes of the flaps are perfectly adjustable lids.
Water resistant 900D shell & 300D Ripstop lining, 1 x external pocket w/ internal mesh pocket, 2 x internal side pockets, 2 x external accessory attachment straps, 1 x mesh zip pocket under clip & Velcro release flap, padded & Brushed Nylon lined main compartment w/ 6 x configurable dividers, plastic stiffening layer in base, carry handle, adjustable removable shoulder strap & shoulder pad, 4 colour ways available.
Suitable for a digital SLR, vertical grip & “twin lens kit”, external flash unit and basic accessories, or DV cam and accessories. E.g. EOS D series SLR’s, Nikon D series SLR’s & attached lens up to 6″/15cm long & external speedlight & second lens up to
A fully padded photo bag with 6 x configurable dividers. You require a shoulder bag that provides a protective environment for your photo and or video equipment that doesn’t scream “photo bag!”
The first trial of my new 6 MDH was the New Year holidays’ trip recently. I had to carry my Canon 450D attached to a 18-55mm lens kit, other three more lens; 24-105mm f/4 L IS lens, 85mm f/1.8 lens and 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS lens, some necessary accessories; its charger, cables and a small blower, and also a Canon IXUS point and shoot camera.
“Agrhh!!…how could I have them all together?!?!?!” I was worried, particularly carrying the bazooka lens (my own call for the 70-200mm lens).
I spent a few minutes to adjust and flip the compartment flaps of the 6MDH (I felt a bit like playing a rubix cube, though). Then, BINGO!! I can fit all my gears into the 6MDH. And there even had a few rooms left to hold additional devices like iPod stuff. Wow!! I was surprised by its roomy indeed. The height of the 70-200mm lens was very well fit to the bag height. I would say that you could even put the two of the 70-200mm lens in case of its heavyweight is not a problem to you.
Right, I now have two of the Million Dollar Home bags. How could I use it then?? I questioned myself at the beginning also. Anyhow, after the trial trip I defined the 6MDH as a superb transport vessel while the 5MDH is a handy carrier. Sounds like I have just been satisfied to the shoulder bags, doesn’t it? 😉
