The black Gourmet Extravaganza Rolling Bag from Crumpler is a travel bag slightly larger than Crumpler's Flaked Extravaganza version. With its capacity to accommodate a more expansive camera system, this bag can hold two DSLRs, 5-6 lenses, including a long zoom, two flashes and accessories. It contains three basic storage areas. First, there's your main dual zippered compartment with a removable full-size cradle that will leave you with an empty shell. The bag opens on three sides so you'll always have complete access to the contents. There's also a zippered mesh storage area located under the main lid that contains four zippered mesh pockets for various sized accessories. In front, there's a separate front compartment with full-width zippered wallets and 9-pocket organizer. This area can also hold an iPad held in its own slip pocket. There's also a rear zippered slip pocket for small items.
The removable cradle offers you plenty of options for carrying or storing your gear. It's made from tough EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) and contains twenty touch fastened dividers that allow you to configure the interior to suit your gear needs. There's also a false floor under which you can store additional cables and accessories. And, when you aren't shooting, you can remove the cradle entirely and use the empty shell as a standard piece of luggage for personal use, perhaps, for a weekend get-away. The front zippered compartment contains those 9 previously mentioned pockets designed to hold pens, note pad, cell phone, cards, memory cards and other small items. Your tripod can be attached to the exterior using the included, removable front loops.
The bag comes with injection-molded polyurethane wheels for ease of transport and complemented by a hideaway, push button, three-position telescopic neoprene trolley handle. The wheels are anti-jam in design to prevent rocks, pebbles or other contaminants from stopping your progress. A padded top carry neoprene foam handle makes retrieval of the bag easier when you arrive at your destination.
The Gourmet Extravaganza comes with some security features that enhance its value and use as an equipment bag. A built-in security chain can be used to fasten the bag to any immovable object using a user-supplied TSA (Transportation Security Administration) approved padlock. Even the front and main compartments are lockable using user-supplied padlocks. The hideaway area for the bag's telescopic handle doubles as a see-through pocket for your business card or ID tag.
This bag is made from water-resistant 900D Cordura nylon with 1680D ballistic nylon reinforced on the bag's base. The bag is balanced to be free standing either in horizontal or vertical position. The Gourmet Extravaganza is backed by Crumpler's lifetime guarantee against manufacturer's defects.
