I was in search for a shoulder bag which is lightweight, compact and still has the space to hold a large DSLR and at least one extra professional zoom lens and several accessoires. Furthermore I wanted a bag which does not look like a photobag. The 6 Million Dollar Home is all that. The bag is very well made, both stitching, padding and Velcro are of excellent quality. Both belt and belt padding are easily adjustable. Even for a not so tall person like me the bag follows my hip good.
The outsight material is although not soft but flexible making it comfortable to carry. This bag is quite minimalsitic and not a pocket and zipper heaven. It has 2 side pockets and a front pocket with a smaller zippered pocket. Equipent is good reachable, offering the posibility to lock the bag or just close it with the strong quality velcro. The height of the bag allows you to put your camera in horizontal or vertical position, making it easy and quick to reach.
The main compartment of the bag is well made and the easy adjustable padding gives excellent protection. The bag has some downsides. The belt padding has to be tide connected otherwise the belt will twist around inside the padding. Although the material of the bag is water resistant, the bag is not water proof. The sides of the bag are at the top not sealed of, because of the type of bag. I used this bag already several times in nasty rainy conditions, equipment kept dry, however I think in extreme windy and wet conditions some wetness can come through.

In short: a well made easy adjustable compact but spacious camera bag which doesn’t look like one.

(What fits in my bag: Nikon D3 or D300 with 24-70 f/2.8 lenshood reversed in vertical position, a nikkor 70-200mm VR f/2.8G with reversed lenshood in vertical position. A SB-800 flash unit. Extra batteries for flash, cleaning kit, CF cards and several other small things)

This bag is wonderfully crafted. Tons of padding as well. I eventually returned this because it was much smaller than I expected. I ended up trading it for the 7 million dollar home. However if you have say 3 lenses, a camera, flash and some accessories this should more than suffice. Again great bag for the price.!

    Comments about 6 Million Dollar Home Bag (Black/Black):

    After two long trips to Asia wth a Lowepro Exchange Messenger (with Olympus PEN E-P2 + 2 lenses), I got this as a replacement. The compact Lowepro stood up well to even tropical monsoon rain, but was too tight when I decided to carry a Pentx K-5 plus a Ricoh GR D IV. This Crumpler is very well made indeed, a cut above Lowepro in interior and exterior materials. To be fair though, Lowepros are very tough and I still use at least a half-dozen of them. The main difference I see is, Crumpler's interior inserts and dividers are much stiffer than Lowepro's, which is good if you think your gear will take a bashing. So when I travel again, I'll be reaching for this bag--less to worry when your gear is well protected. Size-wise, it'll fit one APS-C DSLR body (have not tried with grip) plus two short zoom lenses and a Metz 50/52 flash.

    While I really like this bag, the photo made it appear to hold more gear than it does.

      I did quite a bit of research before buying this bag and it paid off. I have plenty of room for dslr, 2 lenses, charger, flash, etc. And I can strap on a light tripod. It is quiet to open and close. The way the top closes helps to keep out rain, important where I live. I got a great deal on the price too.

      Comments about 6 Million Dollar Home Bag (Black/Black):

      I bought this for a vacation to New York City. Despite it's small size, the bag held a prosumer body, two fast zoom lenses, and a flash with ease. The bag isn't perfect, though. I'd prefer a better seal on the main flap, or some sort of integrated weather cover. It snowed on my and I was constantly worried my gear might get wet in the bag. Also, the tripod straps aren't well thought out.

            Comments about 6 Million Dollar Home Bag (Black/Black):

            Bag is sort of stiff due to the inserts - maybe I can reconfigure them to be more flexible. My Think Pro Retrospective is very flexible, in contrast. Probably would prefer something between the two better. Bag is well constructed and nice bright red inside (but my Pentax K-50 is red, too, so the contrast value is lost!!)

                Comments about 6 Million Dollar Home Bag (Black/Black):

                I own the 5MDH bag, love this bag and has served me well. However it is now small for my needs, so I upgraded to a slight larger bag, i can carry my 7D, canon 17-55 2.8, flash, flash diffuser and sigma 30mm lens with space for more. IT also comes with tripod straps which my previous bag didn't have.

                The bag is very well padded and well thought of design wise.

                One thing i would like is a zipped mesh like my smaller bag.

                I can't fault this bag and am very happy with this purchase.

                Works well with both my Nikon aps-c and Oly m4/3 cameras and lenses. I use this bag for storage and transport and don't use it to walk around with equipment. For transport its fine, lots of padding. For walking around too much padding and too bulky. When walking I carry minimum gear and don't need much in the way of a bag.Construction is first rate. Sturdy straps, shoulder pad included. Fasteners should last forever.As stated before a lot of firm padding, not flexible.Comes with an assortment of dividers, stick to interior with velcro.Could use a few more pockets for small parts.Overall I would buy again.

                    I can fit my long lens, mid and wide angle on my camera in this bag along with an audio recorder, the battery charger, extra battery, and SD cards in here. The only part I don't like is that yes the the cover buckles at the bottom but if it's raining or snowing while windy, that can all get under the sides of the bag onto the gear... Because I have my long lens in there I can't adjust the dividers to make my camera body fit all the way down so it sticks out more than I would like at the top. It's a really nice bag though!

                        Really comfortable and easy to access, Great when I don't want to carry my large camera bag around.
                        The bag is well made and the inserts hold the equipment firmly and safely in place

                          This was a great bag for my recent trip to SF, it held my D700 with the 24-70mm attached, along with my flash and another 50mm lense. It was all that I wanted to carry on the trip so that worked out great for me
