Can't recommend. I've owned the 6 million home bag for 5+ years and enjoyed it with my Nikon D90.
This 3 million dollar home bag is too small to be useful, even for my micro 4/3 system. Materials are good quality, but the design is not what I was looking for. Space in the main compartment is tiny and unnecessarily rigid. The small kangaroo pouch at the front is stiff and narrow - not useful for an extra battery, or Expo disc. The bag's just too bulky for its purpose, stiff and poorly thought out. The divider insert suffers the same poor execution. I sent mine back. Don't recommend this bag for much of anything. Sorry. Like the Crumpler brand, but definitely not this bag.

Comments about 3 Million Dollar Home Bag (Black/Gunmetal):

I bought this to carry a single M43 body plus one attached lens for long walks and hikes. Typically it's my Olympus OM-D E-M10 with Olympus 40-150mm f/4-5.6 or Olympus PEN E-P2 with Sigma 19/30/60mm f/2.8 lens. Both my E-M10 and E-P2 have grips attached. Bag is sturdy and rain-resistant, stiff enough to withstand walks in crowded cities, or clambering over rocky paths on wilderness trails. Only downside is the slightly stiff shoulder strap with no anti-slip padding, but that doesn't interfere with its function, since I carry it cross-shoulder. If you like padded strap and/or grippy strap, this model may not be for you.

      This is a very nice bag-well made, vibrant, functional--BUT, it is very small. Maybe a micro 4/3 or such, but my D80 with mid zoom does not even come close to fitting, and it does not fit the camera put in back first either.

          Comments about 3 Million Dollar Home Bag (Navy/Rust Red):

          I bought this to conceal and protect my Fuji XT1. I have multiple bags but I use this bag when all I need is a single lens kit with some extra batteries and SD cards. The thick straps on both sides are great for attaching miscellaneous items as well. I love that it doesn't look like a camera bag. If you're planning on using this bag to carry multiple lenses, it's going to be too small. If you're a DSLR user, it may be too tight unless you have a smaller body camera. I would recommend this bag for a single lens mirrorless set up or a large point & shoot/bridge camera. This bag is ideal for traveling very light.

              I love this bag for carrying my OMD EM1 (or EM5 for that matter) plus lens, almost always the Panny 12-35mm. It fits in nicely with the lens down, with room for an extra battery and card(s). If that's what you want, it's great. It is comfortable around the neck at the side, light and unobtrusive.

                Nice, small bag that doesn't look too much like a camera bag. The main compartment fits a sony a6000 with the 18-105 f4 lens. There is about 0.3L of additional space in the main compartment. We fit a small tripod (slik sprint II) on the front flap during some short hikes. We put our passports in the back pocket. Putting a smartphone in the back pocket was a bit tight.

                    Nice looking bag made of high-quality materials. But the bag is simply too stiff, making it difficult to get gear in and out of the bag quickly. The strap doesn't stay together (typical of most straps w/o pads), and this is a bit of a pain when grabbing the bag to go. I've been spoiled by Domke bags & gripper straps. Returned the 3MDH for another Domke.

                      This is terrific camera bag. I mainly use it to carry my Sony NEX-5R with kit lens, flash, Sigma 30mm around. I have successfully fitted my Canon T1i with Sigma 17-55mm lens in this. I only wish it had more pockets to store smaller accessories.

                      Comments about 3 Million Dollar Home Bag (Beech/Black):

                      This bag comfortably holds my Canon 40D with a 60mm lens attached. It might be able to hold the camera with a slightly longer lens, but not much longer. The clip that closes the top flap can adjust out pretty far, but you'd lose some padding protection I'd think if it was extended way out. With my camera and lens it also easily holds extra memory cards, lens wipes, an extra battery, and my keys. I like that it doesn't immediately scream "EXPENSIVE CAMERA INSIDE" it looks more like a sporty knapsack. The exterior seems pretty water resistant but haven't tested it in a downpour yet. I also like that it's not HUGE, since I typically take this with me on half-day hikes, and I don't have a lot of extra lenses yet that I want to have with me. The strap is not ergonomic, though it is wide so that's nice, it does not have one of those cushion things to protect your shoulder, that would be nice.

                        This bag inspires all sorts of confidence. It's tough as nails but has a really nice interior. You cannot fit any more than the body w/ an attached lens in the main pouch...and in the cargo pouch and mesh pocket you could fit extra memory cards, extra battery (could even fit a cannon charger as well), cash and credit cards in a money clip but not a full wallet. The big bonus is that every person i ask thinks it's a man purse...10 times better than a big shiny camera bag that tells 3rd world thieves ALERT EXPENSIVE CAMERA INSIDE (i am using it for international travel). I have an 18-200MM on there and you could put on a 300 no problem

                            I first bought a 1 million dollar home and it really wasn't big enough for my canon 40D so I bought the 3 million dollar home and it works great with the camera/lens and extra lens.

                              - Lots of compartments: 1 on the flap, one on the front of the main compartment and slots on each side of the strap (good place for cell phone)
                              - Gives the right amount of protection
                              - Easy access to camera but also securely closes (there is velcro on the flap as well as the clip)

                              Very nice case. I have a digital SLR with extra lenses. This bag is smaller than I expected and one extra lense is a tight squeeze. In hind sight I would have bought the 4-million bag but it is a Crumpler and the quality shines through even if it is a bit small.

                              Nice bag for a SLR on the go with a single lens.

                              Got my crumpler bag the other day and was very impressed by the sturdiness of the bag. the title can be a bit deceiving as there is no way you can fit a 2 lens kit in this bag. i have a canon digital rebel xt and i have 2 lenses, the kit lens (18-55mm) and a 28-135mm and there's no way i can put both lenses and the body in there.however, it is nice if i just bring the 28-135mm along on the xti body. the front pouch can hold a good amount of accessories (charger, cleaner, caps, etc..,) and inside the top flap there is a zippered pocket that can hold small items like memory cards.i am going to bring it on a trip out of town and see how convenient it is, instead of just having my camera around my neck exposed.overall nice design and very trendy looking. good usage of the contrasting colors on the outside and inside.

                              Problems Encountered: Again if you want to carry multiple lenses, i would go with a bigger bag than this.
