Flexible, Accesible Space
To ensure you can put lots of stuff in and get to it pronto, we first put in lots of thought. Thats why the Bumper Issue's 9 litre main compartment is divided into two convenient-sized sections by an elasticised mesh diver. Why it also incorporates a sleeve for a two-litre hydration bladder, a netbook or anything else thats kinda small-ish, flat-ish and rectangular-ish. Why there two further external side-opening zippered pockets. And why the bags shoulder harness cleverly incorporates invisible slide throughs for feeds of the hydrating and/or audio variety.
Two-Litre Hydration Bladder
The Bumper Issue's easy clean bladder will hold and dispense two litres of your preferred hydrating fluid via a tube feed that snakes its way along integrated slide throughs in the bag's shoulder harness.

It's 1992. A young man sits hunched over his grandmother's old sewing machine in a shed in Ballarat, Australia. He's trying to get the machine to sew through a truck tarp, so he can make a bag strong enough to carry a slab of beer home on his bike. Grandma may have helped with the prototype, but it was a parachute-maker who in 1993 really helped Stuart 'Stu' Crumpler on a path to making better bags.
���I went into his shop to buy some material and he looked at the bag I'd made, grabbed it off me and ripped it apart. Then he showed me a better way to stitch it back together.'
These days the Crumpler range has greatly expanded beyond cycling (with a slab of beer) to include professional camera and photography bags, laptop and technology bags, backpacks, casual bags and luggage. But despite the evolution in style and use that Crumpler bags have undergone, the principles behind 'Mr Pattern' have basically remained the same-simplicity, a willingness to experiment, a big dose of humour-and a determination to make the best bag you can scissor from a single piece of fabric.
