Review: Crumpler The Carrot, Limpet and Noose (plus GIVEAWAY!)

Giveaway winner has been announced on my Facebook page and here. Thank you to everyone who joined! 🙂

I miss travelling. The last time my family and I went on a trip was last December, almost a year now. We enjoyed it so much that we have two (2) trips we’re hoping will push through next month and by January of next year. It’s more exciting for us now because we have a new DSLR camera that we can’t wait to use! We also love the whole packing task before the whole trip. And for travelers out there, Crumpler, one of the top brands known for the quality of their water resistant bags, has three (3) accessories you’d want to bring along with you on your next trip – The Carrot, The Limpet and The Noose.

The Carrot

Crumpler The Carrot - a water resistant case

Crumpler The Carrot is a water-resistant case you can use any way you like. You can bring it as a pencil case (I tend to bring 3-5 pens everytime I go out – it’s the girl scout / OC in me :D) or use it to bring your makeup necessities like your lipsticks, etc. when you travel or go out so you can freshen up quickly anytime. This is actually my favorite among the 3 because I tend to bring a ton of things with me when I leave the house so this can help me keep them organized. 🙂

I can use the Carrot as a traveling case for my makeup must-haves

The Carrot’s interior and exterior are made of the same Crumpler water-resistant materials. It’s very durable, with all the reinforced joining and stitching on all stress points, that’s why it also comes with Crumpler’s famous lifetime guarantee.

The eyelets at one end can be used to attach it to your bag, or anywhere you like. They’re brass-reinforced too. If you have a kid who you end up buying new pencil cases every year, the Carrot can be your savior! 🙂

Color options for The Carrot

It comes in three (3) colors – black, yellow, and purple. SRP is Php 950.00 at selected Crumpler outlets (Bonifacio High Street, SM Megamall and Trinoma).

Protect+ : Longer Worry-Free Warranty for your Apple Gadgets

Whenever we buy new gadgets, one of the most important things we want to know is the coverage of the warranty. In fact, people are willing to spend more just to get enough warranty for their devices because of the possible costs of repair. I know for a fact that Apple product aficionados are more concerned about this because it’s a big investment to purchase Apple gadgets like a Macbook Pro, iMac, etc. Well, thank goodness for Protect+ being offered by Digital Hub and Philfire, you can now extend your warranty for your Apple devices.

What is Protect+?

Protect+ is an extension of your AppleCare warranty that includes theft and accidental damages. This is offered specifically to those who have Apple Macbook, Macbook Pro, Macbook Air, iMac, iMac Mini, iPad and iPod devices. They even offer FREE 30-day trial within 7 days from the date you purchased your Apple device.

Based on my experience, Apple products are more prone to being stolen because of its high value in the market. This is why I recommend you get Protect+ to avoid unforeseen expenses. They even offer flexible terms for the duration of the coverage and payment of premiums – an option available to you within 14 days of purchase.


Benefits of Protect+

With Protect+, Philfire will provide Apple product owners security from future costs of repair or replacement of their gadget. Note that the replacement may be a refurbished unit with the same specifications and that Philfire Insurance will pay for a maximum of two (2) repairs during the period of insurance.


Coverage of Protect+

With this warranty, you get 12 months protection from accidental damage (covered with standard repairs and unit replacement) and 12 months protection from theft.

This warranty is available to all Apple products EXCEPT iPhone. Take note that Protect+ is an EXTENSION of your AppleCare warranty, not a replacement. It’s just more affordable and with the flexible payment terms, more practical to get for your Apple device.


Protect+ Activation

How do you avail of the Protect+ warranty for your device? Follow these simple steps:

  1. This warranty is available at your nearest DigitalHub store. Once you make a purchase of your favorite Apple device, ask for assistance from the sales representative to register for the 30-day free trial of the Protect Plus.
  2. Visit the PhilFire website at and then click on Products and choose “Protect+
  3. Enter your personal information and details of your purchase to create your own account. Take note that your registration should be done within 7 days of purchase.
  4. Your successful registration will be confirmed through email verification of your purchase details.
  5. For 6 and 12 months coverage, your Protect+ insurance policies will be delivered to your preferred addresses. How convenient, right?
