Speaking of bags (see my ‘Whats In My Bag’ post!), I’m quite happy to see that Crumpler is coming up with more girly and female-friendly designs.
Crumpler bags are really good in terms of functionality and durability, but I have to say that they seriously lack in the ‘fashion’ department.
(Have you seen any fashion geeks with a Crumpler bag? None? I rest my case.)
Crumpler has this new line called Gypsy Moth which I think girls will love. There are three (3) products underline the line: Flight Bag, Tote and Pouch.
I was able to check out the Crumpler Gypsy Moth Tote.
The Gypsy Moth Tote is perfect as your everyday work or school bag, if you tote your laptop everyday.
It can hold up to 11-litres worth of stuff. (That’s a lot of stuff!) and is made for 13inch laptops.
(I tried fitting in my 15inch MacBook Pro. It actually fits, but it’s really pushing it, haha. You won’t be able to button the safety belt, but you can still close the zipper of the bag, hehe.)
Gypsy Moth Tote Features (from Crumpler.com)
FIVE STORAGE ZONES
- Quick access external zippered pocket
- Twin gripper zippered main cargo space
- Interior padded sleeve with two-position stud clasp for up to a 13-inch laptop
- Interior zippered side pocket
- Interior key ribbon with snap lock
PADDED CARRY HANDLES
Soft yet strong, the bag’s foam padded twill weave carry handles are designed to hold their shape, while moulding naturally to the contours of your hand.
ALWAYS IN SHAPE
The twill weave webbing that criss-crosses the bag upper is not there just for its good looks, it actually helps cinch the bag. So whether fully new or fully loaded, your Gypsy Moth will look fully fab.
A strategically placed loop at the front of the bag let’s you personalise your Gypsy Moth anyway you like. Wabi-sabi wot nots, lucky charms, trinkets, sporting mascots, souvenir teaspoons – the choice is yours.
You won’t find Crumpler’s trademark black buckles, loops, snap hooks and zipper grippers on the Gypsy Moth, but you will find our first ever collection of pearl finished metal fittings.
Fear ye not of wet spots. The base of your Gypsy Moth is made from ballistic 1,680D nylon, a military grade material that combines adjective-defying strength with puddle-defying waterproofness.
GUARANTEED FOR LIFE
We construct the Gypsy Moth with waxed canvas and other ultra durable materials, and reinforce the joining and/or stitching on all stress points. That’s why it carries Crumpler’s famous lifetime guarantee.
If I was still in school, or if I went out for work everyday, I’d definitely buy this bag! Crumpler bags are definitely worth the price.
My only gripe, though, is I hope they come out with other designs, or at least other colours. While I love gray, I don’t want having the same bag as everyone else!
