Crumpler Vancouver Giveawayby
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).
The Crumpler store in Vancouver has offered up two $100 gift cards for two lucky Miss604 readers. Here’s how you can enter to win the opportunity to shop for your own Crumpler products:
- Leave a comment naming a Crumpler product (all listed here) (1 entry)

The Moderate Embarrassment is by far the best messenger bag I have ever owned. To say that I worship the person who introduced me to the Crumpler Company is an understatement – Crumpler actually changed the way I work.
The fact that their bags come in orange makes me incredibly happy.
Increased productivity (read: the lack of lost things) + water resistant + happiness = one of my most favourite things.
I got my first DSLR for my 40th b-day. I desperately need a camera bag-my camera goes with me everywhere. I LOVE that Crumpler bags come in orange! Thos bag aren’t just useful, they are a work of art. I believe the things you have in your everyday life should be both useful & beautiful. This fits the bill!
The Old Banger – cute!
The moderate embarassment! 🙂
Any of the million dollar homes (I prefer the 7 million dollar home) would make my camera and I very happy. I’m checking out this store today when I’m down at the BBQfest!

I bought my first crumpler bag with my first DSLR, 2 million dollar home, over 4 years ago. My gear collection had grown out of that bag, so I went straight to the 5 million dollar home because my first crumpler bag was so good. It was great to see they had improved upon the earlier generations too with some handy new features (velco silencers!). Would love to get more of their bags, the moderate messenger bag looks sweet!
