Crumpler Crumpler

Crumpler is the brainchild of 3 bike messengers - Stuart Crumpler, Dave Roper & Will Miller - who created the company in 1994 in response to the need for well designed, very durable bags for people who really give their equipment a good thrashing.

This was also the answer to the hundreds of poor quality, anonymously designed black bags that were boring ,and dominating the market, at the time.

Crumpler branched out into photography, IT, accessories, and most recently bags on wheels, which have become popular in Australia and internationally in USA, Canada, China, Japan, Singapore & The Philippines.

Crumpler bags are available at their retail stores, online at www.crumpler.com.au and through selected specialty retailers nationwide.
