  • crumpler ori vs. crumpler fake

    Is there such a thing? or only original crunplers? how to tell the difference? I bought one in Holland for EUR80 ... one of those "??? million dollar" things but have since chucked out all documentation/papers.

      Most of the camera bags are made in China. Sooner or later some imitation stuff is gonna hit the market with brands like Crumpet, Crumbler....etc.

          Crumpler "xx million dollar" things are the latest line up introduced a few months ago. It should be the real deal.

            I think he meant "pirated copies" rather than imitations. Or as the grey market would call it "factory over-runs".

              Re: crumpler ori vs. crumpler fake

              when i bought it it has the complete Crumpler write-up etc etc ... though i still have the logo which seems real, there is a piece of label sewn inside which read VIETNAM. Isn't there a definitive marking somewhere that says it's a Crumpler?

                  My Crumpler was made in Vietnam, too (and mine is real)

                    Perhaps the million dollar lineup of bags are made in Vietnam but my Karachi Outpost is made in China and does have a tag sewn inside that says it's a Crumpler.





                    Excuse the DOF.

                      I would've expected 'Karachi Outpost' is made in Pakistan instead of Vietnam.

                      Do they have a 'Monsoon Fever'? wonder where that will be made?

                        i have a "Farmer's Double" lookalike..... bought from the shop next to crumpler in KLCC, wif a 1/4 price tag. What i can say is very quality build, worth the money i paid . Do u guys consider this as a fake crumpler?

                          A fake is something that is not real. What you purchased looked like a Crumpler but was not manufactured by Crumpler so yes, it can be called a "fake" no matter what the price.

                          My dad purchased a fake Rolex almost 20 years ago. Quality is good because the thing is still ticking. But it's still a fake.
