Whilst I've been locked solidly into the Crumpler studio in Kensington, either pushing buttons, or getting hooked on (Wacom) tablets (that is, shooting bags or retouching images) I still get to live vicariously through other's adventures, ususally when they get in contact to ask for the skinny on our camera and tech bags, most of which are perfect for travellers! And we *always* ask to stay in touch. Here's a reply, mid trip, from M + K...
"We've finally returned from Africa, and have some photos of Crumpler in the wild. Africa was incredible - so much life and death, and such harsh conditions to live in! These photos were taken on top of Eagle Rock, just inside Botswana in the Tuli Block, where we participated in a wildlife conservation and research project for a couple of weeks.
The C-list Celebrity worked beautifully, fitting all our camera gear in for the flights and transfers around Africa. When fully loaded it exceeded 8 kgs, but the stitching and material easily held up to the weight, and it also remained dust free inside despite the dusty conditions we encountered.
We used Industry Disgrace camera straps for our cameras and binoculars, which were always very comfortable, even in the 40+ degree heat and sweaty conditions."
We'd like to thank the pair for staying in touch, and for their feedback and photos - AWESOME!
