Whether you’re dressed up for a business trip or down for some serious holidaying, this multi-tasking backpack is the ideal companion for the laptop-toting traveller. As comfortable to carry as it is roomy, the Dry Red No. 5 features a mini office organiser up front, a padded sleeve for your laptop (up to 15") at the rear, and in between, an expandable general cargo space. It even comes with its own cable pouch.
Like every Crumpler, it also carries the famous ‘Til death do us part’ lifetime warranty.
Left to their own devices, cables have a habit of making themselves scarce. Keep them in this pouch, and they’ll always all be in the same place and time zone as you.
Excess baggage to carry? Just unzip the No. 5’s expanding gusset and you’ll find extra storage at your disposal in the bag’s main cargo area.
Wide, body contoured and padded for extra comfort, the fully adjustable ergonomic harness distributes weight evenly across your shoulders.
Featuring neoprene panels and foam cushioning for maximum comfort, the top carry handles mould to match the natural contours of your hand and fingers.
“Amazing quality and functionality. Love the crumpler dry red no. 5 15" backpack. So versatile, and functional. Fantastic quality. Great pockets for segregating your things. This has replaced my mobile office 'suitcase on wheels' and, of course, is so much easier to manoeuvre. Highly recommended.”
“Great bag for the commuter. I love this bag. Very sturdy crumpler quality, a padded laptop pocket to keep your baby snug and an ingenious expanding middle compartment for when you've got to pick up your shopping on the way home. The only thing i think it's lacking is a small, easily accessible external pocket for those things you want to grab quickly like sunglasses or earpods. But great bag.”
“The perfect everyday and travel bag. The bag is larger than your average everyday bag. But, if you carry heaps of gadgets, have the occasional two day trips overseas (eg. Nz), or domestic or even up to 3-4 night stays, this bag will cover it all thanks to the expansion zip. Looks good, quite firm when new but i've got more than 10 crumpler bags and from experience, they always soften with use.”
“Amazingly-constructed laptop bag. The bag is super solid, and amazingly-well built. Great fabric, top quality zips, webbing, strong. The side-loading laptop compartment is a really good idea and well executed. Internal compartment is roomy. The front-compartment is okay; compartments are good, but hard to use for quick-access, because of the clips+zip.”
“Awesome for travel. Good size bag, comfortable to wear. Love it!”
“Exactly the bag for the job. This bag hits the mark for me. I carry gym gear, laptop and work papers back and forth in the scooter everyday, and the bag hasn't missed a beat.”
“Quality all rounder. Easily holds lunch and sundries for the daily slog to work, as well an after work change of clothes (change of shoes included). You can feel the quality, i'll be using this bag for quite a while.”
“Great backpack. Was looking for a backpack that would allow me to take my laptop as well as lots of extras. This one meets the criteria. So well made, so much room and great slot for the laptop which will make doing those dreaded airport checks so much easier. Brilliant idea with the expansion feature. Highly recommend this backpack along with rushfaster. Couldn't better the service.”
“Workhorse bag. I chose this one because i wanted a separate compartment for my computer - i haul it round for work and i don't want to show up to a meeting and have to unpack everything to get my laptop out. This bag solves that brilliantly and i love the red contrast lining for finding stuff quickly. At 1. 3kg empty it isn't the lightest bag on the market, though - fully packed, it's quite heavy.”
“Great bag, perfect for commuting as a uni student. Title of review says it all, i ordered this bag to start university with a utile and durable piece of baggage and this has exceeded expectation even for the 250 price tag. Highly recommend.”
