The Crumpler Whickey and Cox Camera/Laptop Backpack

The Crumpler Whickey and Cox Backback

At first sight you may say: "holy cow, that's a huge bag and it even looks heavy with nothing in it!"

Looks can be deceiving though.

The Whickey and Cox has ample room to safely store all camera components and accessories. The adjustable plastic sheet cored foam inserts are easy to rearrange to accommodate your equipment needs. In addition, the removable laptop compartment (it's easy to separate it from the bag by using the Velcro strip and loop) can be used as an individual, protected carrying case.

The laptop bag has six varying-sized pockets-- great for pens, pencils and other storage needs. All components are completely removable, including the brushed nylon lined camera compartment.

The backpack component can be used for anything that fits the following dimensions:

Width: 13.39''/ 34cm

Height: 20.47'' / 52cm

Depth: 9.84''/ 25cm

Volume: 976 in³ / 16L

Picking up the bag by its top handle, it's not that light. But its function is to be a backpack not a regular bag.

The backpack slides onto the back with ease from support by a spin slot pad. Adding the shoulder/chest and waist straps distribute the weight evenly allowing a hands free, comfortable carry.

Overall, for the reasonable price of $220, this Crumpler is a bag with ample room and comfortable carry.

You could even Crump with it.
