Geeks Go Gaga Over Crumpler's End of Season Sale!

Crumpler Philippines is having a party, and everyone's invited! Ok, so it's not really a party. It's a sale. But they're shaving off prices up to 80% off, so if you're a geek, then there's a party going on somewhere. If you're a photographer looking to upgrade your worn out camera straps and bags, you probably have a rager going on right about now, too.

The big sale is happening at all Crumpler stores nationwide up until the end of the month, and here are a few items you can lust over until you can make your way to the nearest store:

Snap it and stash it! All Crumpler camera bags (and straps!) are designed for photographers. From a weekend happy-snapper (such as moi) to professional shooters, these bags and straps will keep you well equipped and your gear safe from bumps, grinds and unexpected downpours.

Haven (S) is a camera pouch or tech organizer. I bought one of these babies last year for my FujiFilm X-M1 since I loathe lugging a dedicated camera bag and would rather just keep it in my big Neverfull when I go out for events and travel. A portable padded protector for all things photographic, it instantly turns any bag into a camera bag and back again with pick up, plonk down ease. Three sizes are available, with the small Haven designed to hold a micro 4/3, compact camera or DSLR and lens.

Gourmet Extravaganza is a 54cm Pro Camera Cabin Luggage, with a classical design to store your camera, et al. Developed in consultation with a team of professional photographers, all features are considered and necessary for the off-location professional photographer. Heavily featured and durable, the 36L Main cargo area holds an amazing amount of photography equipment, 20 configurable impact resistant dividers held in a removable molded EVA pod will keep your equipment from rubbing against each other. This also has a large front pocket has organization and a large clear mesh zip pocket and features removable tripod carry straps, unique locking system and anti-jam wheels.

Keep your gear secure, and keep it there in style. Crumpler laptop bags are padded, weatherproofed, and designed to go from office to outback. These bags come in a range of backpacks, totes, slings and briefcases.

The Wren Laptop Pouch is a lightweight 13” laptop pouch, that is padded and durable. It comes with a soft satin webbing wrist strap, easy access phone pocket, 2 pen holders, internal slip pockets and a large hanging pocket.

The Wren Handbag (L), on the other hand, is an attentively designed handbag that can double as an everyday workbag or a weekend all-arounder. All fabrics are considered to complement your day to day look but are durable and meant to last. It comes with an easy access phone pocket, zipped pocket, removable coin pouch and 3 slip pockets, making organizing your life a little bit easier.

Sometimes you don’t need to carry the world. Sometimes it just needs to fit in a sleeve and be thrown over your shoulder. Crumpler’s range of iPad and Tablet backpacks, slings and shoulder bags are designed specifically for your smaller devices – complete with padding, weatherproofing and style.

The Arnold Heist shoulder bag is the smart choice for business hours. Sharp for after hours, too. The scaled down, slimline over-the shoulder Arnold Heist includes a padded sleeve for your iPad, netbook or 11-inch MacBook Air, plus three full width compartments for your other carryings on.

For the younger, more laid-back folks, the Cut of Horror looks pretty sweet. Loads of style. Loads of space. Loads of uses. With its distinctive fold-top opening, padded zip pocket for iPad and huge internal volume and weather resistant front pocket. With the soft lining on the inside and tough material on the outside, Cut of Horror switches from work mode to play mode as fast as you can.

Long overdue holiday? Get there in one piece, and with everything exactly where you packed it. Crumpler offers hard and soft wheeled luggage for the long haul or quick dash, and organized backpacks, messengers, totes and slings for everything else.

Aso Outpost is a 15" Laptop commuter backpack. Ideal for bike commuters or the pack-everything-for-gym/work-day. The adjustable main storage zone can be a 25L cargo beast or two 12L zones to create some separation in your life. Features two front facing cargo straps, brushed polyester sunglasses pocket, two water bottle pockets, and a weather resistant design.

The Bronzed Extravaganza is a classically-inspired professional camera briefcase developed in consultation with a team of professional photographers. The 16L Main cargo area holds an amazing amount of photography equipment and a 15" laptop. 14 configurable impact resistant dividers will keep your equipment from rubbing against each other. Features removable tripod carry straps, unique locking system, clear mesh pockets and internal organization.

Bigger isn’t always better. Especially when it comes to what you lug around. Lighten your load and keep your bigger bags organized with the Crumpler range of wallets, portable protectors, camera straps, travel and tech accessories.

I'm liking Anchor, the stylish, fully adjustable soft webbing camera strap. The Microfiber camera protector tabs with attachment split rings makes for easy swapping out, so the strap color matches my outfit every time!

I'm also especially liking the Boom simple camera strap. It comes in turquoise! A fully adjustable camera strap, it has soft webbing and bright colors with removable mini-side release buckles.

Convenient Disgrace, on the other hand, is a pro camera strap that is more for the DSLR owners, or those that own more than one SLR. You can own as many cameras as you want, but you’ll only ever need one Convenient Disgrace. Extra wide for more even weight distribution, extra cushioned for better neck protection, and extra perforated to wick away sweat more efficiently, this all-pro ergonomic strap is fitted with quick release clasps so you can keep wearing it even while you’re change cameras.

So when mucking around Manila with a camera, laptop, or tablet, make a beeline for the nearest Crumpler store and purchase your favorite colorful straps and cool bags before they run out!
