Crumpler’s new bags can carry your gadgets safely with style


After Christmas there will be a lot of people with new gadgets and they’ll need a way to carry them around safely. Crumpler has a range of new bags that can protect them in style.

Whether it’s a new laptop, tablet, smartphone, portable hard drive, ereader or digital camera, Crumpler has a selection of new shoulder bags and briefcases that will allow you to take these devices with you anywhere easily and safely.

And in true Crumpler style these new bags have some very interesting and unusual names – The Pinnacle of Horror, Dry Red No 8 and the Considerable Embarrassment.

Each Crumpler bag is made from strong canvas materials and extra strength stitching that are all back with what the company calls a “Till Death Do Us Part” warranty. That’s a lifetime warranty for you and me.


The Pinnacle of Horror is a top-loading shoulder bag that has a fold down top that clips in place to the bottom of the bag.

Inside is plenty of space for a 15-inch laptop and anything else you can fit inside the generous internal compartment.

There’s also a zippered internal pocket to allow users to keep some things separate from the rest of the bag.

On the outside is another quick access zippered pocket which can fit in your book, ereader, smartphone, music player or your sunglasses.

The Pinnacle of Horror is available in black, red, gunmetal and deep diver.

DRY RED NO 8 – $245

This stylish briefcase is especially designed for travellers and has two padded compartments which are both large enough to fit a 17-inch laptop.

The Dry Red No 8 also has a number of easy access spaces for pens, documents, boarding passes and your passport.
