Whickey & Cox
To those who made inquiries, thanks for your patience.
This is how the interior of Crumpler's Whickey & Cox looks when fully loaded to the brim. Removed because of lack of space are the laptop sleeve and accessory compartment (replaced by Tokina 11-16 and SB-600 above). When the laptop sleeve is attached, the bag can't be closed because of Sigma 70-200.
Normally, this is not the proper usage of the bag. This is for illustrative purposes only - during shoot, bring only the minimum essential. Don't punish your weak-ass back. But if you still prefer to bring the whole shebang, the straps and back support are heaven-sent!
By the way, a tripod can be attached to the holder exterior to the bag.
Obviously, this is not for casual shooting as the bag needs to be put down whenever you need something. Opening is secure as main zipper is at the user's back (good against thieves) but also means not good for quick shots.
Deep exterior pockets are practically useless due to poor design - e.g. drop a memory card inside and you'll have a hard time retrieving it because of very, very tight space. I really don't know what the pockets are for.
Available at Crumpler SM Cebu for about P10,000.
