Review: Crumpler House of Horror Laptop Bag

by | Feb 28, 2013

I remember when we went for a 5-day vacation to Northern Luzon back in 2010, I was supposed to bring my laptop with me. However, because I wasn’t comfy enough with my backpack at that time, I left my laptop at home. It was blessing in disguise ’cause I got to completely enjoy the trip, but I’m not sure I can afford to do that with my current job. I prefer backpacks to bring valuables because I feel more secure with them, so Crumpler’s House of Horror laptop bag is just perfect.

In case you’re wondering who’s in the photos in this review, that’s my nanay – my ever supportive mom. 😀 I asked her to be my ‘model’ and she gleefully accepted the task. After I was done post-processing the photos, I realized that this House of Horror laptop bag looked good on her. So, it’s suited for anyone, really. 🙂

First thing we noticed is, as expected from Crumpler, how comfortable it is to wear this bag on your back. The 38-mm soft webbing straps are easily adjustable to even out the weight distribution on your shoulders.

The front of the bag has a quick access zippered pocket for the less valuable things you bring. Crumpler House of Horror is meant for up to 15-inch laptops. The laptop sleeve is well-cushioned to ensure your device is safe. The whole bag is also made of water-resistant materials, even the zippers!

It has a total of 5 storage zones / compartments. The inside of the bag has pockets for your smaller devices like smartphones, digital camera or even chargers.

The bag also has padded carry handles so you can easily bring this along like a tote bag or even as a frontpack – pauso lang. 😀

    Thanks for the review, I’ve was browsing the internet forlaptop cases and came across your review. I’m looking for something that has plenty of storage for peripherals and games, but also has the most protection possible.

    Funny name for a backpack. Just reading the title, I thought you had a bad experience with the bag. Horrors! Hahaha! But of course Crumpler would have quality products only. Will check out Crumpler soon to look for a camera bag.

    I want this! I need a new laptop bag – something that doesn’t look like a laptop bag, and is durable!

    (Cutie mommy! :))
