The Everyday Backpack stands up to the daily abuses working photographers face living in an urban environment with ease, while holding its own when traveling or being caught in inclement weather without breaking a sweat.

If you’re looking for a stylish sling that will neatly protect camera equipment and other essentials on everyday adventures, the Peak Design Everyday Sling is more than worth the investment.

I really, really like the Peak Design Everyday Sling 5L. In fact, it’s the first bag from them that I thoroughly enjoy. I don’t use their Tote anymore because I feel like Manfrotto makes a significantly better product. Their Messenger bag and I never quite got along, and I have yet to test their backpack for a prolonged period of time.

It is an expertly designed and stylish bag with great customization options. Multiple carry options is another advantage for the bag.

The Everyday Sling 5L is an impressive little bag for everyday carry with a small camera kit, or even just everyday carry in general. The weatherproof materials and zippers make it feel indestructible, particularly the awesome new stealthy black model which has a slightly different material style to the Ash and Charcoal bags available elsewhere in the Everyday lineup.

To sum everything up, if you’re looking for a backpack that feels very modern and innovative, and you need an efficient way to carry small or medium-sized kits around on your travels, the Peak Design 20L Everyday Backpack is something I recommend.

The Everyday Backpack from Peak Design is truly an everyday bag for most situations. It will last quite a long time and provide a level of functionality and quality that is ahead of the curve when compared to other packs in its class.

It’s styled like an urban bag, but rugged enough to spend a good amount of time outdoors. From a functionality standpoint, I love it, and it’s by far my favourite of Peak Design’s “Everyday” series.

This one isn’t made out of leather, or hand-made in Italy, or designed in LA, but it’s still a masterpiece in its own right. I continue to be surprised by how well designed this product is, considering it’s really Peak Design’s second bag.

Regardless of whether you’re an action photographer, a design student or a frequent flyer, this bag allows for easily configurable storage and clever organisation of gear.

It is a great organizer bag with good number of internal compartments. It also comes with a shoulder strap for comfortable carry.

What makes this bag particularly interesting is that it’s been designed to be a universal carry solution, not just a bag for your camera gear.

The Everyday series are made from Kodra fabric that has a weatherproof, hydrophobic DWR coating. They feature weatherproof zippers, expandable designs, brilliant Flexfold dividers and unique custom hardware like the one-of-a-kind Maglatch closure.

They told me that the strap could be twisted upside down when the bag is carried on one shoulder. Maybe. I still prefer having a strap that’s engineered not to slip from my shoulder, especially on a bag so skillfully and thoughtfully designed as this one.

Truly, Peak Design wasn’t lying when they gave this bag the Everyday’ moniker. Peak Design has succeeded in creating a messenger that rises above, ready to be taken on your most strenuous shoot yet or just another day at the office. No matter where my travels take me, I’m confident that the Everyday Messenger will be there beside me every step of the way.

It is a traditional messenger bag to everyday use. Perfect in size and comfortable to carry along with an additional camera holdster at the side.

Although I’m not partial toward messenger bags in general, this product is great for covert carry. It looks like a high-end, modern bag that you might see on a Tokyo subway in the hands of a fashionably dressed salaryman. It does not scream out, “Cameras inside!” and that’s a good thing.

The Brotographer

The Peak Design Everyday Backpack is a jack-of-all-trades, without the “master of none” title, and definitely excels in certain things.

This pack does cost a bit more than your average standard pack, though it’s a pack I’ve been extremely happy to use.
