Imaginary Bags Bidders Bounty!

Building on the successes of previous Cumpler Custom art bag auctions for good causes and times,

Imaginary Bags report courtesy of local TV station WCCO...

avid punters witnessed the hotly contested auction seeing two of the priceless objets d' top a handsome half grand to the one lucky case connoisseur!

Big thanks to Yassira and all of the Sewers for the amazing job, everyone there was so impressed and couldn't stop raving about the excellent workmanship.

And could you blame them?

These wonders have to be seen to be truly appreciated and, I believe, still well undervalued by collectors everywhere.

A big thanks to the crew from One On One Bike Studio as seen on

Finally, how long can you stare at the Imaginary Bags?

Stealth Sports Snappers Squirrel Sharp Shooters

Getty Images ace, Robert Cianflone who oft documents the prowess of Aussie sports heroes in the Gulf States, has nabbed this curious critter, a Crumpler Harry Hoard, the better to dodge the soveriegn state's national airline increasingly stringent carry on resrictions.

Is this but two Canon EOS 1D mk III bodies, a 70-200mm f/2.8 and a 580ex plus 14" Dell notebook with extend battery ensuring Rob has no hassles getting aboard with the bare minimum, whilst the bulk of his gear rides, as per usual, in the hold.

Crumpler HO Invaded by 17" Monsters! Heaven vs. Armageddon...

It's true, you do have to watch what you wish for!
After years of wishing, and with the prospect of shooting our notebook computer bags yet again, I finally cracked and began making enquiries about acquiring an affordable Mac 17" portable.
After a few calls to my extensive (Mac) network I was saying "YES" to our newest studio model, a spanking fresh, first generation MacBook Pro 17"!
Being a photog, having the latest and greatest is somewhat less of a priority, than if I was, say, a videographer. Being a first gen 2.16 Intel, it also maxes out on 2GB RAM, which so far has not been a problem anyway. On the other hand I could afford it, and how, the beast looked completely mint, which is how I'm attempting to keep it, with the aid of our esteemed cases. Thanks to the awesome Crumpler and Mac dealing crew at Emperors Mind for assisting me realise a dream.
Coincidentally, the same week, Crumpler genius designer Joel scored an even more affordable, yet pristine AlienWare 17" - barely portable (6Kg!) behemoth on account of his CADCAM peccadillo...
So... what?
In summary, this means We at Crumpler are now fully portable computer, desktop replacement sympathetic, which in turn, will eventuate in even better solutions for the lugging thereof!
In theory anyway...
