Crumpler recently released a whole new range of bags called 'the outpost project'. The range includes camera and laptop backpacks, some shoulder bags and a few sling type bags. The sling bag I'm reviewing today is called the Sebang Outpost, and couldn't have come at a better time.
I'd been looking for a new street photo bag for a while. I have been using a Lowepro stealth reporter, which was getting too big, bulky and obvious. It's a great bag for a small pro DSLR kit, but not rangefinders. The Sebang is really neat, compact and well designed.
On a normal day I carry an M6 with a Voigtlander 35/1.4, a fuji x100, at least one JCH film case (I can usually fit two), an iPad and similar sized notepad, sunglasses, another small moleskin pad, headphones, and the usual iPhone, wallet and keys. Most of that small stuff goes in the front zip pocket which is really nicely laid out. Sometimes I leave the Fuji and opt for a Nikon film body with a 28 or 50 to supplement the Leica, depending on how I feel.
It sits on the body well, and has a nice quick release to take the bag off in a hurry. Al the straps are really well made and comfortable, with a wide range of adjustment.
For a street bag, this fits the bill. I don't want to carry too much stuff, but I also need a few little bits and pieces, and this bag doesn't feel too much even when it's full.
