I’m giving away 3 really epic bags from Crumpler. Join my contest!

First off, I’d like to thank Charlie for sponsoring this giveaway to the readers. Crumpler has been really generous — they’re giving away three quality bags courtesy of ABL. I’ve been a long time Crumpler user, owning an assortment of bags and accessories (like this branded Crumpler toilet paper). I can attest to Crumpler’s durability, especially during the rainy season. I once had a 12″ messenger bag from Crumpler for my iBook that survived rainfall and being dropped in the mud. True Story.

Before we go on to the contest rules, let me show you the prizes:

1st Prize – The Pinnacle of Horror – P 4,950
2nd Prize – The Kazoo – P 1,850
3rd Prize – The Carrot – P 950

The Pinnacle of Horror

There’s nothing horrific about The Pinnacle of Horror, Crumpler’s latest mainstream messenger bag for all your gadgets. Just look at it. Marvel at all the gadgets and doodads you can stuff inside. It will even fit your cat.

Loads of style. Loads of space. Loads of uses. With its distinctive fold-top opening, integrated padded sleeve for up to a 15-inch laptop and plentiful internal and external pockets, the soft on the inside/tough on the outside Pinnacle of Horror switches from work mode to play mode as fast as you can.

Full width zippered rear compartment with pocket organiser
Reinforced side accessory loop

Tough but tender, the bag’s lining is made from soft to touch ‘peached’ polyester, and patterned with heat embossed Crumpler wallpaper.

The bag’s roll-top opening features a combination of clasp and zipper closure. You get extra security when you want it, and extra fast access when you don’t.

The Pinnacle’s 38mm wide strap and removable shoulder pad distribute weight evenly, while its tri-glide buckle lets you adjust the strap length to ensure the bag sits right where you want it.

Made from water resistant materials, the bag features a waterproof roll-top opening and YKK water resistant zippers for maximum protection in wet weather.

We construct the Pinnacle of Horror with ultra durable materials and reinforce the joining and/or stitching on all stress points. That’s why it carries Crumpler’s famous lifetime guarantee.

The Kazoo

The Kazoo is compact but spacious enough to fit your smaller gadgets strung around your body. It fits snug and tight especially when you’re active or on the road on your bike. You’ll always find something to place inside The Kazoo.

Compact and multipurpose, The Kazoo’s form is reminiscent of a New York based hip hop band of the early 2000’s. Its uses are as numerous as the bands song titles are imaginative, but don’t let that throw you. Designed as a secure and easily accessible travel bag for your documentation and valuables, the Kazoo also excels when carried across the shoulders, lending itself perfectly to cycling. Internally there’s enough space for your wallet, keys, passport and travel documents or a bike repair kit, spare inner tube and some light sustenance.

To help wick away perspiration, the rear of the bag features Air Mesh padding.

The rear reflector helps the bag and the person carrying it stay highly visible after dark.

The bag outer is made from water resistant materials and features hooded external zipper on the main compartment.

The Carrot

It’s the best looking pencil case I’ve ever seen. And more. Wave The Carrot in front of anyone to incite their curiosity. It fits pencils. It carries pens. It can even carry money. You need this.

Pens… pencils… highlighters… markers… at the stationery shop they all look so neat and well behaved. Take them home, or anywhere else, and they instantly start going AWOL. So take control. Show them who’s boss. Zip them into a Crumpler Carrot pencil case.

Let your Carrot free-bag, or attach it to a key ring or even the accessory loop on another Crumpler.

The Carrot outer shell and interior lining are both made from water resistant materials.

We construct the Carrot with a single piece of ultra durable material and reinforce the joining and/or stitching on all stress points. That’s why it carries Crumpler’s famous lifetime guarantee.


1. Participants must write a haiku about why they think Crumpler is cool. Entries must be written in the comments section of this blog (you can use both Facebook comments plugin and the regular blog comments section; I’ll read them all).
