Unfortunately it was only available in Europe. So after a lot of trolling and tracking down, I found one.
Like all Crumplers, it is incredibly well padded and comfortable to wear on your back. It has a unique split zipper design that cuts the bag in half if you unzip it all the way. It has one huge main compartment with one external deep side pocket (great for keys and stuff that you need to access quickly) and one internal mesh pocket perfect for memory cards, batteries, filters and other small gear.
One nice feature is that while it is a Nikon branded bag, the Nikon logo is actually hidden since it’s on the side of the backpack that rests against your back so like other Crumpler bags, it doesn’t scream camera gear inside.
It has a removable camera ‘bucket’ that velcros into the bottom of the backpack which is also branded with the Nikon logo:
It easily carries my D90, 50mm lens, Lensbaby Composer, 10.5mm Fisheye lens, SB-400 flash, Zi6 videocamera and GPS unit with lots of room above inside for some other stuff like a light jacket, lunch, etc. It’s the perfect backpack for a photowalk.
I had initially came across this video on Youtube which sold me on the backpack and shows how it all ‘works’ together:
The only downside with this bag is that because it’s made by a different company than the Crumpler that is available in North America, it’s got a few minor differences. The main one worth mentioning is that all the bags I have from North American Crumpler have nice, solid metal zipper pulls with the logo embossed on them. This backpack (and another bag I have from Europe) has plastic zipper pulls. The North American ones just seem beefier. A minor issue to be sure but a difference nonetheless.
I love this backpack.
