Since it’s now 2012, let me start this year with a featured product of the month – the Crumpler Ltd Edition.
For the benefit of those who don’t know what Crumpler is, it is a trusted brand of durable backpacks, camera bags, laptop bags and messenger bags among others. The Crumpler Ltd. Edition includes 5 specially designed bags – the three (3) messenger bags, The Hoax, The Barney Rustle Blanket and The Western Lawn and, the Crumpler’s two (2) camera bags – the 5 Million Dollar Home and the 4 Million Dollar Home.

This messenger bag is tagged as “always a crowd pleaser” because of its well-thought of design and of course, the Crumpler’s well known use of high quality bag materials. The Hoax bag has a flexible space just in case you need extra compartments for your stuffs.
It has a wide and adjustable lengthy strap, where you can opt to remove the built in shoulder pad. Also this messenger bag has twin reflective stripes, which is more useful at night.

Another aspect of Western Lawn that is surely to win your attention is its anti-abrasive surfaces that are designed to protect your garments and other stuffs. So, your clothes don’t catch and your cargo doesn’t get scratched.
