The Crumpler Cupcake slim backpack solves this with side openings. All you need to do to safely access all your gear is slip one shoulder out of it's loop and swing the bag around to your front. It's easily done on the move and I never feel nervous about items falling out of the bag while doing it.
The bag itself isn't huge (the slim should be a giveaway) but you'd be surprised what you can fit in there. I currently have a Canon 5D MkII with a 24-105mm L lens attached, along with a 100mm L macro and room for a speedlight and a small prime lens as well. Add to that room for many memory cards, a camera manual, lens cloths and the other usual gubbins you'd find in a photography bag.
The bag seems very comfortable for extended periods of use, although it does get rather warm on your back.
All in all an excellent bag with many little features that just make it a pleasure to use.
I've used Crumpler products in the past and I quite like them. They're made well, they look good and they seem to protect my expensive items well too. They're often expensive, but shop around as I did and someone's normally got a sale on somewhere. In this case I found this bag on Amazon for half the price that it was on sale elsewhere - bonus!
I still to this day cannot understand why camera bags are so expensive when they are just bags with dividers, but as it's a specific market it appears they can charge what they want for them.
My bag arrived within 2 days. Fantastic delivery speed. It was for some reason packed in a huge cardboard box that I could have fit a 32" TV in, but that's not a major problem, it just made me laugh that my bag was rattling around inside it.
The bag itself is well made. It feels strong and the padding gives confidence that casual knocks and bumps shouldn't be a massive problem for my expensive lenses and camera inside. There are also some nice little pouch areas where I've managed to stash a small book, USB cable, lens filters, lens adaptor and a couple of other small items.
The shoulder straps are a little stiff but I'm sure over time they'll become more comfortable and less rigid. I've also noticed that the bag isn't waterproof but as it's not advertised as such I don't put this down as a problem. In fact you can buy a rain cover for it if you intend to shoot in poor weather but as I don't have a rain proof camera I doubt I'll really need it anyway - if it rains I'll come home.
So far so good. With the above considered and the bag's good looks the camera is pleasing me rather well. However you'll notice I've only given it 3 out of 5 stars. I'll explain why.
The bag is a good bag, no doubting that. Sadly it's let down by Crumpler's customer service / policies. When you receive the bag you'll only get a set amount of separators inside it. These are moveable so you can customise your layout depending on what kit you have. This is a good thing as we all have different sized lenses, cameras and varieties in kit. The problem is that you get what you're given and no more!
Being a MFT camera owner my camera is slightly smaller than the average DSLR or similar types of camera. I still have the lenses and other kit to carry around and I still need to separate them. Unfortunately the standard number of separators mean I am unable to secure my camera without it moving around the bag leaving it likely to be damaged. No problem I thought, I'll buy some more. I contacted Crumpler via email, asking to buy more separators but to my surprise they refused. They stated it's not something they do and as such I couldn't have any more, even if I was willing to pay for them! I tried to then find separators all over the internet but to my surprise nobody appears to sell such a thing.
I find a way to secure my camera in this bag but it involves using bubble wrap. I bulk my camera up with around 3 foot of bubble wrap to hold it in place with the inadequate number of dividers. This makes it a pain to remove the camera and put it back between use and it kind of makes a mockery of an expensive bag bought precisely to look after my camera. It also seems odd that these bags are more expensive because of their unique features in being made to carry camera kit and being customisable to your kit, yet they won't let you buy the number of dividers you need!
Crumpler's lack of business sense and customer service here seriously lets down what otherwise could be a fantastic bag, reducing it's score from 5 stars to 3. They're missing a trick here because they could sell the dividers at a good price to make more profit and they could keep us customers happy. Shame...
I love crumpler bags as they are tough and practical but also not obviously camera bags - you don't always want to stand out as carrying expensive equipment around, especially if you're out on your own.
I would highly recommend this bag.
