Crumpler Never Disappoints

I have a 4 MIL that is 6 years old. It's not big enough for my typical day gear anymore, so I wanted to pass it along to my wife and upgrade. But the outside of the bag had some serious dirt, smudges--basically 6 years of use on a bright red bag. So I checked Crumpler's site for cleaning instructions. They said to use a damp cloth. Amazing. It looks absolutely brand new now! Indestructible, comfortable...and they look great, unlike usual "camera bags."

I was nervous that the 5 MIL wouldn't be big enough as others have cried about their small size. Sure a bigger one would hold more, but I have a KATA backpack for that. I want a day bag that is absolutely THE smallest possible. This is it--for me. I currently have a 60D, Zeiss lens, maybe an extra lens, and a Zoom H4n, lav mic, notebook, phone...it all fits perfectly in this bag. I love it. Will I have to upgrade again when I move to the 7D? Perhaps...but I'm sure I'll try rearranging the handy dividers and seeing if I can make it last. If not, I bet their resale value is terrific!

Also, just a note about the seat belt strap. I know others have complained that it doesn't come with a shoulder pad. I agree, when I purchased the first one, I was really cranky about the strap--but within no time the seatbelt strap softened and is so comfortable. It glides over your clothes and is not bulky--much preferred but weird at first to accept.

I have the first 5 million dollar bag and it has a fold in the back that makes it tip over bought it in 2011. Crumpler replaced the bag in 2014 saying it shouldn't have a fold. Sent me a new bag which is smaller has less security and padding and STILL HAS A FOLD IN IT for the same money. They made it cheaper and thought no one would notice.This bag is dangerous if you care for your SLR The body is not protected at all. I would not buy this bag at the new smaller and cheaper style.

      This is a really nice bag. It comfortably carries my 5D MkII with a general purpose zoom attached. Like everything from Crumpler, it is well constructed from heavy duty materials. Highly recommended.

          I upgraded to this one from the 4 million bag which was too small. It's a great size for my OMD EM-1. Not too big, not too small.

          Great Quality and Function

          Comments about Crumpler 5 Million Dollar Home Bag (Black/Black):

          Crumpler has been know to make a good bag and this is no exception. While it retails on the pricey side, catching it in B&H's deal zone made it absolute no brainer. I have a ton of gear. I have large backpack and slings and a large rolling camera bag. But, when I wanted to just carry my 60D body/OMD E-M5 body and a couple of lenses I had nothing medium and inconspicuous in size. This solved my problem and did so without hurting my pocket at all.

            I jumped on the $ deal, and didn't realize it was so small. For $ I like it, otherwise, not terribly impressed. The quality seems very high but the usability seems less than stellar. By the time I fit my T3i with 50 mm attached and 1 zoom lens in, everything was very tight and I couldn't really fit my flash in. Nice pockets on the outside for small things.

              I use this bag for my Sony a6000 body plus three lenses, a spare battery, a battery charger, extra lens and body caps and a Sony HVL-F20M external flash.The bag is well constructed from durable materials and can be adjusted to achieve a comfortable fit. Use for a DSLR plus lenses and a few accessories would be limited and may require the 6 Million dollar bag.

              It's a nice little bag but a bit too small for a full sized body plus a decent lens like a 24-70. I think this would make a great bag for a mirrorless camera plus other accesories or perhaps for a rebel with a standard lens. I own the 7 Million dollar bag and feel that's as small as someone with a 7D or a 5D3 would want to go.

                    It's a well crafted bag and built to last. I got it on a B&H holiday sale so it made sense. I'm not sure I'd pony up full price for it. (Read: heck no)I use it to hold a mirrorless camera (Fuji X), with an 18-55mm and straight 50 lens with no problems. I've added a Lowepro lens pouch to hold a 55-200mm and that seems to be working. It's a small, well constructed bag. I'd say it's good for travel or when protection is of great importance. Otherwise, I'd probably get something a little larger. I wouldn't consider this for a DSLR--smaller, mirrorless camera would work best.Likewise, front pouch is very small--only for a battery or two and small accessories. 4 stars for the price I payed...less (fer sure) if I had to pony up full price.

                          small lightweight bag.
                          good construction and material quality.
                          padding is adequate.
                          fits my D3300 fine with smaller lenses.

                          Well made bag as is most Crumpler products. This bag is fairly small so it's great for a mirrorless system with 2 lenses, maybe 3 depending on the lenses. Can also fit memory cards, couple filters, lens wipes, etc... Much more than that and you may need something bigger. Only complaint is i wish the back of the bag was sturdier, it kind of bends in the middle. The material is nice though so the bag is both durable and a little flimsy, haha. Not a big deal really in the end.

                            compare to product bag this is half in size which is added advantage.
                            I safely carry 3 gears + body + battery charger in this bag.

                                Bought this bag on sale, was too cheap to pass up. I'm using it as a dual purpose bag. A bare bones setup for a 5dIII with an 85 1.4 and 24-105. Also for a all my micro 4/3's gear. We'll built and tough.Only wish it had a tablet pocket.

                                    I brought this Camera bag for My Nikon D5100 and I am Glad because it holds my Camera, my Mic, and my 35mm lens.

                                    We took this bag to Disney world and it worked perfectly with my wife's Canon T5i.

                                    This bag feels like real good quality. It's pretty durable and protects my Nikon DSLR well.
