The small beech/black/orange Local Identity Backpack from Crumpler is a multi-use, waterproof backpack that can double as a functional sling-style bag. With its removable small Crumpler Haven bag, you have the option to expand or contract the size of the pack at will. When you need ultimate protection for your cameras, use the Haven to secure them within its padded interior with movable orange dividers. The Haven will accommodate either a micro 4/3 compact camera or DSLR with lens. When you want a larger main compartment, just remove the Haven. There's also a sleeve for your 13" (33.0 cm) laptop. The Local Identity has a top opening main compartment that is supported by a zippered side compartments with touch fastened pockets.
The bag is made out of rugged waterproof material with a TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) tarpaulin front panel as well as strong YKK zippers. The roll top is also water-proof and will guard your gear in extreme conditions. You'll also have exterior D-Rings for attaching small accessories such as a pouch. The harness is fully adjustable and can be used as a sling-type bag that swings to the front for rapid access to your camera rather than having to remove the entire pack. For additional protection, the back and bottom are made from "wickable" material that will remove moisture and make the pack more comfortable to carry.
Crumpler backs the Local Identity with its lifetime warranty. At only 2.4 lb (1.1 kg), this is a serious pack for people who want a flexible backpack that can withstand the rigors of extreme weather while providing excellent protection for its contents.
