It’s 1992. A young man sits hunched over his grandmother’s old sewing machine in a shed in Ballarat, Australia. He is trying to get the machine to sew through a truck tarp, so he can make a bag strong enough to carry a slab of beer home on his bike. That young man was Stuart Crumpler, whose fate later on in life introduces him to a Melbourne based messenger company owner Dave Roper and Will Miller, joined forces together and they became one of the best bag producers.

These days their bags are created to carry much more than a slab of beer actually they create bags and sleeves for almost any item from cameras to laptops. I recently dropped by the Brisbane store located on Adelaide Street, the fellas their hooked me up with a nice Gun Metal “Complete Seed” Messenger Bag that lets me stuff and lug all both my cameras and their respective accessories around in comfort. Check out your local Crumpler store or checkout their nifty web store, which has to be on the best designed Australian web stores.

Their innovative design behind their iconic messenger bags were a case of trial and error and direct feedback from working messengers from Stuart’s partners’ company, and this in turn allowed Crumpler to create the perfect messenger bag. The bags are wholly adjustable for any situation and allow you to carry heavy loads with ease. Their innovating third leg strap allows you to ride with your messenger bag in a secure position so that it doesn’t flap around like most single shoulder bags and other touches like quick release straps let you adjust your bag for quick access to your things.
