The eternal quest for the best Digital SLR Camera Bag

Digital SLR Camera Bags

Crumpler Digital SLR Camera Bag

So I’ve got the diaperbag, I’ve got the laptop, I’ve got my purse and I’ve got my Digital SLR camera bag.  How on earth am I going to get all of this plus my 18 month old on a transatlantic flight to Ireland this summer?  Well, careful packing will get me so far but the ever changing regulations on baggage allowance are so tight I’ve decided that I’m treating myself to a new digital SLR camera bag from Crumpler.

I’m going all out and going to splurge on the 8 Million Dollar Home bag which has room for a full size Digital SLR, big zoom lens, my laptop and loads more extra space.  I love the Crumpler range of camera bags mainly because they don’t look like a camera bag!  They have a whole variety of shapes and sizes so there’s bound to be one in there to fit your requirements not to mention style.

As the name suggests, the 8 million dollar home does not come cheap but when you’ve spent serious money on your gear it’s worth spending a little extra on a good quality bag to haul it around in.

Plus these bags are really comfortable to wear and if you’ve ever used a bag that’s not comfortable you’ll know what a pain it is – Frustrating and can sometimes put you off taking your camera with you.  Not Good!

The same can also be said if your DSLR camera bag is difficult to access, to close or just doesn’t have enough room from everything.  These bags have heaps of space and lots of dividers inside so you can customize the interior to suit your needs.  The outside is made of a water resistant Nylon which will be great in the lovely Irish weather!

It looks like I will meet the hand luggage requirements on my flight after all as my new Crumpler digital SLR Camera bag even has room for a few diapers and a sippy cup!

Happy Snapping


PS You can find the complete range of Crumpler Cags here.  They have every size, shape and almost every color!

This one is a great all-rounder. I’ve had so many bags over the years Katie and none of them have done the job well. I guess their a bit like purses – one is never enough!

I tried many bags before settling on a Lowe Alpine Flipside 400 AW. It holds my camera, lenses and filters etc. The main compartment zips are hidden against your back for security and the all-weather cover protects your kit in the event of a downpour. Oh yes, and you can access the main area by sliding the bag around your waist by means of the waist strap. It’s only downfall is the slack tripod holder.

That bag is wonderful it has lots of compartment. The part of the camera like lenses and etc will be protected. Aside from keeping you camera safe it help also secure all your belongings.

I love a bag that has many compartments for other gadgets beside my SLR.

I love all things Crumpler! You got the 8 Million Dollar Home bag? Which color combo? I’m in love with olive and red one.

It looks good but if you need to carry round to take picture for few hours then it’s not comfortable at all. Good for carry in flight but not for walk.

When I got started taking pictures, I thought one good camera and one small bag would be enough. I became obsessed with lenses and filters for shooting my fine gold jewelry under (sometimes odd) studio lighting at various locations, and now I definitely need one of these. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction!

Glad to help Bobby!
