Crumpler Proper Roady 2.0 Camera Sling 2500 (black)
OUR ORIGIN – DOWN UNDER, MATE!
1995. Melbourne, Australia. A bunch of gritty bike messengers realized they need messenger bags that could live up to their tough line of work. No bag on the market could, so they started designing those bags themselves. Crumpler was born.
THE PASSION – BAG TO THE BONE
Why do we make bags? Because it‘s what we do best. Since that initial messenger bag we strive to offer the perfect bag for every type of urban species – from street photographer to traveller to tech-savvy commuter. We are constantly researching, tweaking and improving our bags to provide you with the best possible solution.
Chicken Tex™ Nylon is a custom woven fabric and is the main fabric on most of our bags. This fabric has up to 1000d weave density, which is a lot (3.5cm2 is made from 9Kms of nylon!). Created to have the perfect balance between ultra-strength and weight, Chicken Tex makes Crumpler bags extra tough.
BUCKLES & CLIPS
Our buckles and clips have to be high quality, strong and efficient so we make them out of polyamide (nylon) or polyacetal (metal substitute). We test to make sure the durability is excellent before use on any of our products.
STITCHING: THE BAR TACK
To make a long lasting bag, you need strong stitching in key joins. We use a bar tack, a tight zigzag stitch repeated over itself to ensure maximum strength so your bag can take high amounts of stress
