Similar to San Francisco's Chrome, Crumpler was founded in 1995 to serve the urban bike messenger community with sturdy, purposeful packs and bags. However, while Chrome has remained relatively core focused, Melbourne's Crumpler has expanded to offer products fit for a range of active lifestyles and individuals. After a recent brand overhaul the Australian company is excited to announce a collection of bags re-designed exclusively for Apple. As per Apple's specific request, each bag features specific pockets for a MacBook Pro and iPad. The three designs will be available in a range of exclusive colorways to the public on 19 February.
The largest bag, dubbed the "Cut of Horror," holds up to 12 liters of volume, while weighing just under 1.5 pounds. This messenger-style bag features a zippered flop top closure with a single external pocket for quick iPad access, making it best suited for lengthier commutes and grocery runs. The collection's smaller counterparts, the "Pinnacle of Horror" and "Flock of Horror," similarly weigh in under 1.5 pounds and each hold 5 liters of volume. Both close with a fold top and feature a single outer-pouch iPad pocket and numerous interior pockets.
Available in two to three colorways (black, royal blue and oatmeal) exclusive to Apple, the bags go on sale 19 February 2013 directly from Apple and Crumpler for between $130-$140. For more information visit Crumpler online, where the Flock of Horror and Pinnacle of Horror are readily available in their initial iteration.
