    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):

      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.

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

          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.

              Comments about 3 Million Dollar Home Bag (Brown):

              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 give this bag 5 stars based on the quality of the product; however, it did not suit my needs. i purchased it for my Rebel XSI, along with a few accessories (charger, memory cards), and it was just way too small. don't get me wrong, it did fit the camera and accessories perfectly fine, it was very tight though, and there was no room for anything else

                  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.

                    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.

                    Comments about 3 Million Dollar Home Bag (Brown):

                    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.

                    Expertise: Enthusiast

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