Nice review, nice bags, shame the about the web-sites! In your review you mention "avoiding the company’s infuriatingly over-designed website". I would like to second, third and fourth (
) that. The USA site
appears to be designed for a five year old. I thought the UK site
might be a little more grown up until I moused over the "Photo Bags" icon and elicited the following text in a pop-up (the asterisks were added by me, by the way):
Clickity clickity, yr a far far f**tographer . . . So u need a Crumpler f**to bag - U can get big and small camera tools inside (deep inside) . . . Take a photo of the bags with yr eyes, slip yerself down to the darkroom, stick yerself thru that weird water s**te then pop out of it with a Crumpler photobag for a head . . . F**tographers forever!
I don't care how well their products review. For a photographic accessories website if that's their best effort then they are not
a company I will do business with.
P.S. Don't get me wrong. I enjoy "earthy" humour, though I prefer it a little more sophisticated, but I find it singularly inappropriate in this context.
