So online shopping isn’t something you’d want to do very much in Switzerland. (The VAT fees are crazy, don’t get me started.)
But while Crumpler Europe doesn’t have shops in Switzerland, they do have a distributor here. Which means yay, I can buy Crumpler Europe bags.
But after many temptations, I’ve still not purchased one for myself.
HOWEVER, I have made my first Crumpler Europe purchase for a friend of Jason’s back in Singapore. And the bags arrived today in full, yummy, Crumpler glory.
I bought him the wrong color by accident. He wanted Charcoal. I hope he’ll be fine with this which is actually about 10 times prettier but he wanted a plain design. But it’s so gorgeously designed and the strap is so much softer than the Crumpler we have in Singapore, which means it won’t cause as much friction against your clothes and ruin them faster. And also the strip has a lovely padding. And gosh the design is so much prettier and subtle.
And in case you’re wondering what’s so special about this bag. It’s a CAMERA BAG. Yes. It’s not your regular-joe Crumpler. That baby is padded for your camera body and two extra lenses at least.
Now you know why I’m fluffing over it.
The other bag he wanted, it’s one of those limited edition Crumplers. Lots of compartments! And of course meant for a 15″ Mac in it’s full glory AND still has space for loads of other stuff without looking too chunky.
Okay this was just an entry to fluff about the Crumplers (that are not mine).
I would have been so totally tempted by the camera range if not for the fact that I largely just carry my camera around in normal bags these days.
My Kata looks shamefully fugly next to these Crumpler beauties.
Though actually I have managed to acquire for myself a new bag too since I’ve got here. (We’ve been shopping a LOT this month.)
Okay. Back to doing powerpoint slides for our presentation next week. We have school every day next week! (Payback for not having any school this week)
