The Everyday Sling 5 is the smallest and lightest bag in Peak Designs’ Everyday range, best suited for organisation, transport, and quick-access to essentials, plus it can accommodate a camera, drone or everyday gear. It can be worn as an across-the-body sling or as a waist bag with the convertible strap, allowing for a quick-adjustment that can be loosened and then tightened again for accessing gear on the fly with one hand.
Peak Design are well known for their practical camera bags and the Everyday Sling is no different, as the name suggest this 8L/10L bag has been designed for those days that require less gear or photographers that prefer the minimalist approach. Constructed with a single-shoulder strap, the bag and all your equipment is easily accessible, with the Flexfold dividers ensuring everything is organised, the 2 strong and padded dividers can be reconfigured or completely removed to fit your needs.
Peak Design was founded in 2010 after Peter Dering from Minnesota realised what a hassle it is to travel with a DSLR, and through support from a team of adventurers, urban commuters, designers and of course photographers (and a massive Kickstarter campaign), the company was born. We will be looking at Peak Design’s Everyday Messenger Bag, which is packed full of useful features to make travelling with a camera an easier experience
The Everyday 20 Backpack is a 20L backpack designed for photographers and creative types on the move. Starting on the outside, the patented MagLatch has been designed to provide “lighting fast top access”. For me, I am not a fan of this catch at all. I wanted to like it because it looks great, but it is unnecessarily fiddly, especially when the bag is lightly packed. Not to worry - thankfully Peak Design have popped on two side-loading pockets with weatherproof side zips for quick access to your gear.
Often camera bags come in either a backpack or shoulder bag format, this is because when your hands are full of expensive camera you don’t want to be juggling a bag strap at the same time. So I was surprised when I saw that Peak Design had released an Everyday Tote bag. Available in Charcoal or Ash, the bag comes with two FlexFold Dividers, an anchor for key tether, and a tripod band to secure a tripod. It is carry on approved by most airlines and is made from a waxed Kodra synthetic canvas with DWR coating for weather protection.
