Crumpler Boston Heist previewed at Crunchgear...

A tech bag SO new, it's not even out till November!!! Crumpler's Boston Heist 17" laptop/gear brief case/shoulder bag barely survives Crunch Gear's 2010 bag week marathon. Which leaves me around 3 months to reveal it's all of it's charm in the Crumpler photo studio.

Sneak Peek: Crumpler Fug and Herbas for iPad

Of course the iPad is best enjoyed completely nude, and of course the iPad too, but when it's time to protect it for transport Crumpler comes to your rescue with our new Fug sleeve and Herbas satchel. Oh yeah, it's the thin end of a BIG wedge, for sure! This is what our marketing supremo had to say to 12,000 esteemed subscribers of the Strand Arcade mailout:

If you were one of the first to bag a much coveted iPad then congratulations.

Secondly, we'd like to suggest The Fug & The Herbas as suitable homes for your new hardware. Both are the newest additions to the Crumpler Tech range.

The Fug is a quality neoprene laptop sleeve of simple design that fits your iPad like a Fug, and is made to slip neatly into The Herbas.

Fashioned from one piece of material, the Herbas is a tidy bag featuring one front pocket for cables and chargers and another smaller coin pocket. A single oversized clip holds this clever one piece construction in place. It's a neat and simple package. Just what your iPad needs.

The Fug & The Herbas are available individually or as a pair for $100 at Crumpler in The Strand Arcade & from late August.

Crumpler's Central Sydney shop is located at the Strand Arcade
- it's the home of Australian Fashion!

"Museum quality" old Crumpler bag to borrow for company 15 year anniversary exhibition

We are having a 15 year anniversary exhibition at the MCA in Sydney later this year!

Best bags get photographed for a catalogue.
Best of the best bags requested to actually be in the exhibit itself...
Please send a mobile phone photo of your bag :-)
Cheers, Ben ( ben at crumpler dot com dot au)


FYI, by "Museum Quality" I meant to suggest "worthy of a museum exhibit" - not "mint condition". We want to borrow bags for the exhibit from back in the day, warts and all!

I believe the era we're looking for is rectangular (plastic) logo Crumpler bags, and bags that had custom logos (and those bags that came before that???) - no logos on the quick-flick buckle (unless updated/repaired).

Or earliest woven label bags with strap sewn flat onto the side (not in on an angle)!

These were made in Stu's garage or workshops in Kew (canvas bags), Flinders Lane and Brunswick St workshops (striped and custom) from around 1995-1999.
