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).

 

The Limpet

Crumpler The Limpet - a luggage tag

The Limpet is Crumpler’s luggage tag, something that’s vital for travelers to have on their bags in case of mix-ups with other passengers’ bags.

You pull up the tab at the back of the Limpet to reveal the card where you’ll write your information.

Back ot The Limpet

As you can see, the Limpet is also made of the same high quality materials Crumpler is known for. With the blend of polyurethane, polypropylene webbing and ripstop nylon that makes it ultra durable for the frequent travelers. The webbing on the strap makes sure it grips tight on your luggage.

Crumpler luggage tag - I love the texture!

I love the texture of the material and the color options – black, grey / orange-blue and grey / pink-yellow.

Color options for The Limpet

The SRP for the Limpet is Php 750.00. It’s also only available at selected Crumpler stores (Bonifacio High Street, SM Megamall and Trinoma).

 

The Noose

Crumpler The Noose - A camera wrist strap

When all 3 items featured here were delivered to me, The Noose was the first I wanted to try. Why? Because we recently acquired a DSLR camera and I want to see if this new Crumpler accessory can really handle my camera usage.

Though I also like neck straps for our camera, it can be a pain in the neck quite literally. The Noose now gives you a way to securely keep your camera close to you without unnecessary neck pains.

The neoprene cushioning that you use to secure the Noose on your wrist is resistant to water, oil and aging. It’s also very soft and even after a couple of tries using it, it didn’t strain my wrist at all.

The Noose firmly and securely keeps your camera close to your wrist and it can handle our camera's weight

He was doing the Spiderman hand thing… 😀

Now, imagine my reaction when my bro (he’s my hand model for the 2 Noose photos above) dropped the camera while he was wearing the Noose around his wrist. It scared the heck out of me! 😀

But, it only showed me the strength of the Noose and tubular webbing that ensures my camera is safe and secure on my wrist.

Memory card pocket on the wrist strap

Oh, it even has a small pocket for your extra memory cards. Just unbutton that section of the wrist strap and it’ll reveal this pocket.

The SRP for the Noose is Php 850.00 and it only comes in black. Just like the Limpet and the Carrot, this is only available at Crumpler stores in Bonifacio High Street, SM Megamall and Trinoma.
