In July of 2008, Vancouver got its very first Crumpler store, which had laptop and camera users rejoicing. The coveted Crumpler messenger bags, backpacks, camera bags, satchels, straps, wallets and other accessories for your tech on-the-go were available to peruse in Gastown. At the time, my friend John Biehler stated that “This is the next best thing to an Apple Store opening in Vancouver…and just as dangerous.”
In a ever fluxing retail landscape, the store on Richards and Cordova has stood the test of time, as do the sturdy Crumpler bags themselves. My husband’s 5 Million Dollar Home is still almost like new, and he purchased it when the Vancouver store opened.
As the school year ramps up and seasons change, Crumpler has some great suggestions for toting your gear in style. Such as: The Herbas (L) Laptop Bag ($74.99), the King Single Backpack ($179.99), and the Moderate Embarrassment Messenger Bag ($99.99).
