PEAK DESIGN is a company that found success by being crowdfunded. It has achieved success through appealing to the photographer and the non-photographer alike with their beautiful yet highly functional products. I got my hands on the EVERYDAY BACKPACK 30L and in a short time I found myself reaching for it more often than my other camera bags.
As a professional photographer, I have ton of bags in about any form and type to carry my stuff. I even have a backpack with a revolving compartment. However, they are good for the purpose for carrying equipment safely but not much space for anything else.
In the everyday backpack however, I was more than able to not just carry my camera and lenses but also a bunch of other stuff and even a small bag. This bag might not look that big on the outside but inside, I was pleasantly surprised at how much I can pack in to the bag.
The bag features dual side opening which was particularly useful in situations where I have a lot of items in the bag. Usually,I would have to dig deep and rummage around just to find what I need. With the Everyday Backpack, I can see all my items clearly. The FLEX-FOLD™ DIVIDERS is a very interesting divider as it allows your to customise the bag depending on your carrying needs for that day. It was however not as rigid as I would like them to be. The backpack utilises magnets for its pouches which in my opinion way better than a zipper or velcro.
It is the small little smart features that impressed me the most. It is simple yet makes using the bag much more easier to live with.
The quality you feel when you touch the bag is noticeable. It is made of very good materials. You do pay a pay quite a bit for this bag but premium materials and top notched workmanship justifies its price tag easily.
In just a few outings with this bag, I am sold on its functionality and then the design was what got me attracted in the first place. I highly recommend this bag to anyone who wants a functional camera bag yet one that looks amazing. You can get the bags in many of your local camera shops or you just simply order online from their website.
