Day to day life sometimes requires a day to day bag. Us Photographers like a camera with us all of the time you never know when that excellent photo opportunity is going to come out of the blue.
The problem is for regular day to day use proper camera bags are not suitable for transporting your day to day items to and from work, school, university etc and sometimes you want to be discreet about the fact you’re carrying an expensive camera.
Crumpler have yet again come up with an excellent solution for every day use, The Private Surprise Backpack which looks and performs like a standard every day backpack but has a discreet and almost secret camera compartment in the bottom.
The camera compartment covers around one third of the back pack and has a rubber coating to ensure your camera is protected and waterproof the compartment is accessed from a zip on the outside of the bag.
The Crumpler Private Surprise Backpack would appeal to the mobile photographer (especially Street Photographer) who needs to whip their camera out quickly and discreetly. You can simple reach round behind unzip the zip half way and pull your camera out, take your shot then reach round and slide the camera back in and close the zip, you won’t even have to take the bag off of your back!
The camera compartment is big enough for a DSLR with a standard zoom attached and a spare standard zoom lens or a couple of small primes. Not masses of room but if you’re using the bag for general everyday use you won’t likely want to be carrying much gear anyway, what’s more extra equipment can be stored in the main compartment if required.
The main compartment is covered with a flap that is secured with a quick release clip inside is a tablet compartment that will hold tablets up to 10 inches over the tablet compartment is a small flap that will secure your tablet.
At the bottom of the main compartment is a zipped trapdoor so both interior compartments can be made into one if desired.

The Crumpler Private Surprise Backpack is constructed from 1000d Chicken Tex Supreme, Waterproof Ripstop Lining and Soft Nylex.
