I forget whose blog I was looking at the other day, but they had and recommended the Peak Design Everyday Sling 10L. Once I started looking, I decided updating my accessories might help scratch the GAS I've had lately. So after comparing a few things and shopping around, I ordered quite a few things:

Everyday Messenger 13"
Capture Pro Clip
Slide Summit Strap
Pro PAD Stabilizer for Pro Clip
A couple extra anchor links for the strap and a second Pro Plate (probably not necessary, I may return it.)
Plus I ordered an Oben tripod that was on sale at B&H for good measure

This review will be a work in progress. The reasons for which will become apparent soon. In the past I had a big thread comparing the 5, 6, and 7 Million Dollar Home Crumpler bags. Great camera bags, but I have stopped using them. I prefer multi-purpose bags. For the past couple of years I have been using a Timbuk2 messenger. Typically I'm carrying 1 camera, some full sized headphones, an iPad and/or MacBook Pro, and miscellaneous accessories. I will also sometimes throw a beverage and some part of breakfast and/or lunch in there. Now the Timbuk2 doesn't leave me wanting for much except a bit of a more dedicated camera compartment. Throw some GAS on the fire, and I order the above.

And here are the items I was able to stuff in there. Don't normally/always carry multiple lenses.

So after receiving the 13" today and loading it up, I have to say it was a little tighter than I was hoping. The bag is similar in size to the Timbuk2 Messenger I have, but the Timbuk2 will hold my 15" MBP. So I was probably foolish to have ordered the 13" size to start. My reasoning was that I recently traded my 12.9" iPad Pro for a 10.5" version. Oh yeah, that was (and still is) in the back pocket of the bag.

Here is the way I loaded it.

One of the lenses is under the flap on the right. Then I folded down the one over the camera and put the other lens and the B&W's on top.

So on to the bag itself; it's GORGEOUS. I LOVE this bag. The materials. The construction. The color accents and aluminum details. It's awesome. The main gripe I have so far is the waist band that is stuffed into those side pockets intrude on the inside space and I wish they were completely removable. I suppose they are with scissors, but I'd rather not go there. :D The folding separators are fantastic. The magnetic latch system is awesome. The bag somehow feels lighter than my Timbuk2 did even with more stuff in it.

And one thing I found a pleasant surprise, barely visible on the right hand side in the second picture above, one of their clips. The side pockets aren't very secure, so I attached that clip to my badge for work and now I can easily attach it to the bag and not worry about losing it.

I haven't gotten into the other things I bought. This review was mostly about the bag. So for now, that's all. The 15" is scheduled to show up on Thursday and I will update this thread at that time.

Water will bead off. You won't be able to go in the shower or in a pool with it.
