I’m in the process of relocating back to the US from Japan, part of that means I mail my camera gear ahead of the move. There was no question I’d be using my old Peak Design Everyday Messenger bag, the 15 inch that started the craze. What I am surprised about is how great of a bag this still is!
Top zipper access in the 15″ PD bag, built in color coordinated battery holders (for charged/uncharged), luggage pass through on the back, and the flexi-fold style dividers to stack lenses were what I missed. Did these little things mean enough to go through the hassle of selling the current bags on eBay?
Peak Design gear is something I’ve been using since 2012 and they’ve NEVER failed. Peak Design’s customer service is second to none, they set the standard for creating products that customers request through surveys, and their lifetime guarantee is hassle free. Check out their Black Friday Sale from Nov 16-30th!
Back in 2012, I began looking for another way to connect my camera to camera straps, wrist straps, and tripods. The problem was this, if there was a strap to keep the camera safe from accidental dropping, it almost always interfered with the tripod plate. That’s when I discovered peak design gear, it to appeared to solve all this. If it worked as advertised, it would mean no more fumbling around with equipment and no more straps that didn’t work with other products.
Back in September (2016) I stated that if I had a mirrorless camera, “this would be my bag 24/7!” Well, I meant it, and after writing that post I actually ended up purchasing a Sony A7R mirrorless camera and decided to give the Everyday Sling a shot as my every day bag.
When originally asked if I’d be interested in one of the new Peak Design bags I actually said “no”… Sometimes I’m not the sharpest knife in the drawer.
Only 30+ hours to get a new Peak Design bag at Kickstarter!
If these new bags are anywhere as good as their Everyday Messenger Bag released last year, you might want to get one early through their Kickstarter Campaign.
If you’re at all interested in Peak Design or a new camera bag, I’ve written two posts related to my Peak Design camera bag.
I’ve been using Peak Design gear since 2012 and am still wow’d by their products! I can’t see myself walking out to shoot without a piece of Peak Design gear
After seven months with my Peak Design Everyday Messenger Bag, I feel comfortable saying how this worked out.

I used to carry too much gear, way too much. So many extras for ‘just in case’ moments that my bag weighed a ton. Most of it was just along for the ride.
I’m back @ blogging’ after a couple of years away.
