A good camera bag is like the best pair of jeans you can own: comfy, rustic and beat up. You know you’re in love with photography when your camera bag has absorbed the dust and flavors of the sojourn, much like how a cast-iron skillet cooks with the spices of the last hundred meals.
That being said, the Cobram Outpost is part of my lifestyle regimen to make the logistics of underwater photography more bearable. This 2014, I’ve been shooting exclusively with Sony’s RX-100 Mk II and I still can’t stop hankering as to how I’m enjoying myself a lot more with the upgrade in technology and the downgrade in size. Lugging around more than 5 lbs of equipment that was not SCUBA gear can be a huge impediment so the move to a compact camera was a welcome one.
The guys from Digits sent me the new Skivvy (finally a Crumpler bag with a name only 2 syllables long), the 13-inch variant of their new line of messenger bags. Ideal for the current line of 13-inch MacBook / Pro, this bag can hold more things than meets the eye.
Hey all! Thanks for waiting. I finally have a list of winners for the three bag prizes from Crumpler. Winners were chosen based on how much the haiku made sense, how well they flowed when recited (not necessarily rhyming) and of course, creativity. These are the top three entries that won.
To the winners, congratulations! I’ll be sending you an email to discuss how you can claim your prize. =)
Message in haikus,

It’s been almost a week since Crumpler Philippines announced the local chapter of Beer for Bags. Let’s check out some of the photos of beer stacked outside the Cumpler store.
I took these today, after coming from an appointment:
Wow, that’s a loadful of Cheetos! Sadly for those who still are planning on exchanging their beer for bags, most of the stock is gone. I wanted the Maurice messenger bag for my 13 inch MacBook — but that’s gone too.
