HERE IS LINK TO KICKSTARTER PAGE IF YOU WANT TO JUMP RIGHT TO IT - https://www.kickstarte​r.com ...tote-and-sling?ref=d5zxp0 (external link)

The Everyday Backpack (in 2 sizes), Everyday Tote, and Everyday Sling. Each available in one of two color-ways: Charcoal (with red accents and black trim) and Ash (with blue accents, leather accents, and black trim).

The Everyday Backpack

EMBED PREVENTED, HEAVYWEIGHT DOWNLOAD: 2.84 MB
http://i1126.photobuck​et.com ...rter_everydaybackpa​ck.gif

An intelligently re-designed backpack that adapts to your gear, lifestyle, and environment, the Everyday Backpack was created by a team of designers, engineers, and photographers to meet the needs of creative, adventurous people.

Available in two sizes, the Everyday Backpack features fast access to all internal parts of the bag via dual weatherproof zippers and no-look, one-handed, patented MagLatch™ top hatch closure. A weatherproof 500D synthetic canvas shell on the exterior of the bag sheds water and provides durability, while a minimal amount of dangling straps, adjusters and tails help to maintain a clean, elegant look. Like its predecessor before, the Everyday Backpack has been designed to conquer organization. Internal, endlessly configurable FlexFold™ dividers protect and organize a full pro photography kit or any other daily carry, and internally padded accessory pockets keep your small things in check. Long haul travelers, and around-the-block commuters will appreciate the bag’s integrated luggage strap for easy and secure roller-top carry, concealed external passport and travel document pocket, and externally accessed 15” padded laptop sleeve.

Everyday Tote

​The classic tote, completely reimagined to protect, organize, and provide lightning-fast access to your photography and everyday gear.

Available in two colors, the Peak Design Everyday Tote is the classic tote, completely reimagined to protect, organize, and provide ease of access to your photography and everyday gear. Lined with a high-density foam-padded cotton twill and accented with leather details, the Everyday Tote is ideal for carrying essential photography, work, baby, or day-to-day gear. Easy-open side panels let you quickly access your gear without having to take the bag off your shoulder and internal origami inspired FlexFold™ dividers eliminate wasted time spent searching for your belongings. Reinforced magnetic closure strip opens and seals the main opening instantly and effortlessly. As with all bags in the Everyday Line the Everyday Tote is constructed using a beautiful weatherproof waxed Kodra™ shell.

Everyday Sling

IMAGE: http://i1126.photobucket.com/albums/l617/1kindphotography/blog_post/kickstarter_everydaysling.gif

​The ultimate low-profile, quick-access day bag for light carry and daily excursions. Ideal for photography essentials, minimalist on-the-go carry.

The Everyday Sling is the ultimate low-profile, quick-access day bag for light carry and gear minimalists. Hugely expandable outer pocket accommodates jackets, snacks, and other everyday carry, while weatherproof zips allow access to padded main compartment and expandable outer compartment. The Everyday Sling also features a dedicated protective sleeve for tablets up to 10” and zippered internal pockets to protect sensitive items. For those on the move, quick-adjusting seatbelt-style strap gives immediate access to bag without taking it off the body and an ambidextrous sling strap is internally padded for all-day comfort when carrying heavier loads.

Just for clarity, is that the publicity release by PD, or have you seen these bags?


Cheers, Damien

They are on Kickstarter. I think they just put it on Kickstarter yesterday and already funded past their goal. 1.2M raised so far. Release is targeted for Dec 2016.

I opted for the 20L backpack.

Its their new Kickstarter campaign that they just launched. It's not available yet. They are targeting for shipping in December (hopefully in backer hands by Xmas).

I'm going to have a full review on all of them once I get them. Last year, the sent me the EDM bag before it was sent out so I'm hoping I get my hands on them early again so I can post the review. If anyone is in the NYC area, I'm sure they'll have the near final production at PhotoPlus at the end of October.

I just put in my order for the 30L. Figure it'll be the last bag I'll ever purchase. The build quality looks great on their FB page. It has some more in depth videos of each bag. https://www.facebook.c​om/peakdesignltd/ (external link)

I have a few of their products including the Capture Pro and the Every Day Messenger bag. Quality is fantastic and I can't even tell you how excited I am that they finally made a backpack style bag. I backed the 20L and 30L. I think I will use the 20L for travel and 30L will get used for every day carry.

Just received the Everyday Tote for review. Waiting for the Charcoal to come in to do a comparison review.

Had a chance to see these over at Photo Plus. Interestingly enough, they're not as big as they look. The 20L for example fit great on my 5'7" frame and felt pretty good. Not sure how it would feel loaded up with gear though. Also it's not the cheapest of bags, at a $250+ price tag. The one that surprised me the most though was the sling. It felt pretty light weight, looked like it would fit a decent amount of gear without overpacking, etc. It might've been better if it didn't slightly grow to be able to fit a 13" MBP. Not sure who wants to carry around a 13" MBP in a sling bag, if it was sized to fit just a 10" tablet it might be more compact. Again, a well thought out bag, but at the retail price of $150, it's not the cheapest bags out there. Considering that I was able to pick up a closeout f-Stop Mobile Sling for $31, this at $150 or $130 after discount is hard to swallow for those on a budget. Also picked up a Thule Aspect backpack for $130 which I like as well. I still might pick one up, will need to wait for confirmation if it'll fit an Olympus 40-150 2.8 unmounted before I commit.

Overall job well done, Peak Design. A little out of my price range, but for those that like it, it's made pretty well.

I also attended PhotoPlus on Friday. Stopped by their booth to get an up-close look at the Backpack (should be receiving both the 20L and 30L for review when they get back to Cali) and also take some video and pictures of the ash color since people on the Kickstarter campaign wanted more detail view of it.

But the day before (Thursday) the show, I got this in the mail...the Peak Design Sling in charcoal - https://youtu.be/mbqc-NL8LCk (external link)

I took it with me to PPE and it was raining. It held up pretty well in the rain. I had my 5D Mark IV w/24-70L II and G1 X Mark II. It held it very well and fit perfectly. Definitely a great bag for light carry.

As for your concern of making it fit the 13" MBP, the original idea did fit 13 MBP but was a very tight fit. So they extended the back 0.5" to make it close a little easier but you wouldn't even notice it. If it's not for the 13" MBP, I'm sure someone would want to carry their 12.9" iPad Pro which is almost the same size as the 13" MBP. Here is the 13" MBP prior to the increase - https://youtu.be/FhFhF​urcE9o?t=43m26s (external link). You'll see that it closes but barely. So all they did was just raise the back a little so that it would be able to zipper. The size and dimensions stayed the same with the exception of raising the back higher.

For those curious about the ash color, here are the pictures of the ash backpack and sling (and tote from previous uploads) - http://tinypic.com/a/f​eowfp/3 (external link)

And here are the videos:

- Everyday Backpack 20L in Ash - https://youtu.be/nfU7a​WYBHM4 (external link)
- Everyday Range Pouches - https://youtu.be/kWhan​Qcn4KM (external link)

But I agree, the price is a bit high.
