The Big Cheese Backpack from Crumpler

The Big Cheese Backpack from CrumplerThe Big Cheese Anthracite/White backpack fits a 17" laptop with space for 2 camera bodies and up to 7 lenses and accessories. It features the ultra comfortable backpack hugging system with tough padded shoulder straps with removable and adjustable chest strap for extra comfort - ensuring that you don't get too tired to play with the goodies inside. A removable rain cover keeps your things dry whatever the weather. It has two external pockets and a quick access front pocket that is accessible whilst you are wearing the bag. The laptop compartment is padded with document and cable storage solutions while padded dividers keep your camera gear safe and sound.

In 1995 David Roper and Will Miller founded Crumpler in Melbourne. Stuart designed the logo in 1991 which he branded onto his furniture designs. From the beginning the bags were designed for bike messengers, in particular those working for Roper and Miller's bike courier company, Minuteman. As the bags seen around the city were durable and colourful, there was soon commercial demand and the range grew to include more options in colours and sizes. Due to this commercial and more professional demand the Australians were looking for business-partners.

Today, Crumpler is equally owned by all of them but practically divided into two autonomous working parts. One providing the European, African, South, Central American and Mexican market, the other one delivering bags to the USA, Canada, Asia and Australia. The company then started producing colourful laptop computer and camera bags. The colourful bags were both unique and highly influential in times when the dull black technical style bags prevailed.
