Because it’s the season for giving gifts, I have another treat for my readers: a Crumpler giveaway! If you’re not familiar with Crumpler yet (what rock have you been hiding under?), it’s a bag company that’s particularly popular for their backpacks, travel/camera bags and accessories and laptop bags. They have a whole lot more, of course, but that’s what you usually spot hereabouts. Everybody likes them because they’re heavy-duty, durable, sturdy and they usually come in great colors.
So what do I have in store for you?
The Carrot (P950)
At first glance, I wondered what The Carrot was. To me, it looked more like a cute fish. See, that yellow eyelet looks like a fish eye and the pink zipper looks like a fish’s mouth. It’s a pencil case that’s roomy but compact. Of course being Crumpler, it looks simple but the nylon casing and stitching is sturdy. The material is even waterproof. I especially like that the zipper twists around, making it look like a cute fish opening its mouth when you zip it down. Well, I stuffed the fish with some items from my desktop. (Yes, I just bought Grandma’s Secret Spot Remover, and I’m excited to use it!). You can pretty much use The Carrot for other things, too, like storing your watercolor brushes or even make-up items like lipstick and make-up brushes. I like having a lot of cases inside my bag because I have a lot of junk in it. I keep everything separated in pouches and cases, because bag organizers don’t work for me.
The Noose (P850)
Funny name, yeah? But it does look like its name! The Noose is a camera strap for your wrist. It works well with my Canon 30D, which is a heavy D-SLR model. But since it IS heavy, I don’t recommend letting it hang about your wrist for so long (or even your neck) if you have the same model. As you can see, the strap is pretty thick and it’s very well-cushioned. It can adjust to any wrist size. What I usually do with my camera strap is that I wrap it around my wrist so I have no fear of it dropping. At least now this is an actual wrist strap. Like I said, I don’t really let my camera hang from my wrist, but I always tie it to my wrist so that it’s secure.
The Limpet (P750)
I like having different luggage tags for all my travel bags and styling suitcases. Do you know that particular luggage tag which had these words like “Put it back it’s mine” etc.? They were pretty cool, but they were so popular that lots of people had them! Doesn’t make sense anymore to have a luggage tag which you might confuse for yours when it’s actually someone else’s. That’s what I appreciate about The Limpet, because I haven’t seen it elsewhere yet. It stands out, so you have an easier time locating your luggage. And it’s not flimsy, either–the ID tag is sturdy and well-protected.
