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.!

    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

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

          I've been using a Crumpler 3MDH for quite a while for a single APS-C body + 30mm prime lens. After I added a 70-200mm lens to my setup a few months ago, there was no way the 3MDH was going to suffice. I shopped around quite a bit for a much larger bag that would fit my current body and 2 lenses, with at least some room for future gear. I considered way too many options, including a Lowepro sling, and a Think Tank Retrospective.

          I went so far as to stop off in the B&H store in Manhattan to compare this bag with the Retrospective 10, and decided on the Crumpler. I like the messenger style setup, the padding, the bright red lining (it contrasts well with black camera equipment), the tripod straps, everything. I brought the bag to a very windy beach this weekend and was pleased to find that there was no sand inside of it at all. I felt reasonable comfortable swapping my lenses around inside of the bag, using the top flap as a nice big shield from the sand blowing around.

          Also pleasing: the outer elastic-y pouch (the one with netting for your memory cards and such) is easily large enough to hold my Kindle.

          My only complaint is that it was hard to find a satisfactory and flexible arrangement with the completely configurable dividers. There are about a bajillion ways to divide the large compartment but I wanted something that would work with either lens on my camera, and the other in the bag. I think I'm there. We'll see how my next hike goes.

            Perfect size for running around and taking pictures with several lenses and a Full size DSLR. I had the 5 million dollar bag and out grew it. It really is an awesome bag. I also love all the pockets and of course the bright colors. I am a woman and I can handle toting it around full just fine. If you are thinking about it, I would get it.

              I have a Canon 7D with Grip and a Sunsniper strap. I compared this bag to the Thinktank Retrospective. The Retro way way too tight. This bag is also tight and a little hard to get camera in and out quickly. One pro over Retro bag is that it has locking straps on the front versus velcro. I was looking for this feature since I will be traveling in Europe this summer. Still not sold on the bag and it may go back.

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

                This has to be the best camera bag I've ever owned. I bought it close to 3 years ago and use it with my Nikon D300, in addition it has room for 2 separate lenses. There's a nice pocket in the front for filters and a zipper compartment in the flap for things like a remote cable release. The only complaint I have about it is the sides have outside loops, not small pockets. I've traveled with it several times and it fits nicely in the overhead bin on a plane.

                  I was looking for a bag to carry on flights. I was concerned that this bag may not be big enough to pack the gear I need, but the bag has plenty of room and is comfortable to carry within airports. I pack a Nikon D7000 and 3 lenses: 70-300mm; 10-24mm; 24-70mm. In addition there is enough room for charges, spare batteries and filters (although you can throw the accessories in your checked luggage as an alternative. The bag is well built and I'm very happy with this purchase.

                    Love the consturction, look, and setup of this bag. I also like the strap. Since I am a large guy it is hard to find one that will fit confortable on your shoulder or across you chest. This one fits the bill. I did return this bag to get the larger model. While this would fit all my current needs it would not work for future purchases.

                      I find this camera bag ideal for travelling, it has plenty of space and it's very well padded to protect all your stuff.

                      I can keep inside a canon 7D with 15-85mm mounted and 70-200mm in one side. There's still plenty of space for the battery charger, and additional battery and several cables.

                        Comments about 6 Million Dollar Home Bag (Brown):

                        This is my first Crumpler bag, though I've been using messenger-style bags for years (mostly Timbuk2). Overall, it's pretty great. There are tons of pockets and little nooks for storing flash cards/lens filters/batteries/etc. It holds a fair amount of gear. Best of all, it looks much less conspicuous than a standard "STEAL ME" black camera bag and more like a relatively small "man-purse".

                        PROS:
                        -Good build quality
                        -Comfortable shoulder strap with pad
                        -Lots of small storage pockets
                        -Able to hold dSLR w/ battery grip and telezoom, 2+ smaller lenses, a speedlight, and all accessories

                        CONS:
                        -(Relatively) expensive
                        -No tripod straps
                        -Just barely fits a dSLR with battery grip and tripod mounting bracket; you may have to turn the camera 90 degrees to get the top flap closed.

                        Overall this is a solid day trip camera bag. If you plan on hauling a ton of gear (multiple bodies/lenses/speedlights, a tripod, a laptop, etc.) you may want to jump up to the Brazillion Dollar Home.

                          I used it for my Olympus E-520 DSLR with 12~60, 70~300 lens plus FL-50 flash and a lot of accessories, it still have space for me to put a bottom of water. It is good fit for my daily use and for traveling with this bag.

                          This product was exactly what I was looking for. Holds a D90, with 18-200VR lens with ease. I have used it without the removable dividers but in a messenger wrap for a bit of extra protection. The padding on the walls of the bag is plenty if I'm having an easy day. Gives me the ability to use it as a purse, to easily hold large womans wallet, guide book, instruction manual, an tons of other stuff. I carry BIG bags all the time, and was worried about the size of this, but its great. I know the camera is safe and can hold everything I need. Also, I plan to do some traveling alone in India and South America. I'm not concerned that this will shout out "woman with camera bag holding thousands fo $$ of equipment." I just with that there were pockets that were accessible without opening the flap, i.e. back or top of the flap.

                          Pleased with my choice!

                            I've only had this bag for about a month, but I love it already! I use it primarily for personal use with my D90, but will be doing some freelance work in the future as well. Previously, I purchased a Terraclime 100 and while it was a stylish and comfortable bag, the Crumpler bag is much more spacious and has tons of padding to protect your gear. The shoulder strap is comfortable and easy to adjust. Right now I have in it a D90, 2 flashes, lens hood, Holga 120 camera, film, D90 battery charger, and cable. The main compartment is pretty full, but all the pockets still have extra room. This bag is big, which is why I bought it, but if you don't need a lot of extra space then go with one of their smaller models.

                            I carry a Nikon D300, a flash, 1 extra lens and accessories. The dividers inside the bag are movable, which I did move around. I love the Orange color on the inside of the bag, easy to see small black accessories if they fall to the bottom-- they don't get lost! I was looking for a camera bag that didn't look like a camera bag--and I found it! Also very easy to carry.

                                It seems I have a small collection of camera bags - and none of them have really pleased me until now. This crumpler bag is perfect for carrying my Nikon D300, SB800 flash, extra lens, with still room for the little things.

                                It is comfortable on my shoulder, it's not as bulky as similar bags, it is lightweight, and it has a unique design that helps prevent spilling equipment just in case the bag isn't securely closed.

                                  I needed a bag to take out for a day of urban shooting. The Lowepro backpack I have was too much. This bag is great. Yes, you can load it with a lot of gear if you want to, but I just put a camera and 2 lenses in it.
                                  There are attachment loops on the side of the bag (kinda hard to see in the pictures) that will take add ons such as lowepro slip lock accessories.

                                  The bag doesn't scream "steal me" which is a plus.
                                  I think it is VERY well made. I like the hidden deep side pockets. It makes it easy to stash a water bottle or rolled up magazine in there.
                                  I'm very happy with this purchase
