Now you see it, now you don’t. The incredible shrinking Squid is a stow-away drawstring backpack that appears on demand to accommodate your cargo carrying needs, then returns to the fold just as quickly.
Simple and useful in equal measure, the Squid’s 20 litre interior and zippered front pocket combo is great for gym gear or groceries, super for schoolbooks or sports, and handy on holidays as a bag-within-a-bag back up for washing, toting, day packing or heavy duty free retail therapy.
Made from water resistant 150D Rip-stop, the Squid features reinforced stitching on load points and flesh-friendly, thick woven drawstrings for comfy over the shoulder holding and easy opening and closing.
Like every Crumpler, it also carries the famous ‘Til death do us part’ lifetime warranty.
To ensure you can put lots of stuff in and get to it pronto, we first put in lots of thought. That’s why we gave the Squid a seriously large 20 litre main compartment, as well as a quick access front zippered picket.
Tipping the scales at just 200 grams, the Squid weighs about the same as a supermodel’s breakfast, while its 21mm x 12mm x 6mm folded dimensions allow it to slip unnoticed into the tightest packed suitcase, or even your jacket pocket.
The more stuff you carry, the more you’ll appreciate the Squids’s 4mm diameter thick drawstring cord. Even over the long haul, its soft but strong woven polypropylene remains gentle on your hands and your shoulders.
The combination of woven polypropylene cord and oversized drawstring hemming makes for fast opening and equally quick, no-gap closure.
Be it rain, hail, sleet, snow, beer or mixed drinks, the Squid’s 150D Rip-stop outer and oversized drawstring hemming are designed to weather the storm and keep what’s inside dry.
Designed to outlast its lifetime guarantee, the bag features a strong, water resistant 150D Rip-stop outer and lining, woven polypropylene cord, and bonded nylon thread with reinforced stitching on the drawstring anchor points, seams and all other stress points.
