Peak Design’s extensive research and development procedures are certainly tangible in every aspect of their product lines and Everyday Backpack 20L Zip V2 is one of them. The Backpack has impacted my daily life as a photographer, especially on the go.
Peak Design Everyday Backpack
When I put my hands on the Peak Design Everyday Backpack 20L Zip v2 in Midnight, I was more than thrilled to test the products out! The backpack itself comes in various colours such as Black, Charcoal, Ash, and Midnight. They are also available in two different sizes – the 15L and the 20L. Right off the bat, the design of the backpack comes across as sleek and rather chic. Due to its classic design, I never spend a minute worrying about my outfits, especially when I am traveling to and fro shoots and meetings. As a professional photographer who is always on the run, a functional backpack is essential for me. Aside from the classic design, the outerwear of the backpack, with its 100% recycled 400D nylon canvas shell, is extremely durable and weatherproof.
Inside the Backpack
During outdoor shoots, I usually carry with me two cameras, a couple of extra lenses, and a few minor pieces of equipment in my luggage. However, with the FlexiFold dividers, I am now able to stow everything away neatly and with the design of the bag, I can now access my equipment efficiently with simple side zip. Additionally, there is also a laptop compartment that fits easily a 16” Macbook Pro and a 12.9” iPad Pro.
The internal compartments of the Flexifold dividers are so impressive that the MagLatch feature provides an internal expansion of up to 3L on the 20L backpack. The bag itself is This means that the bag itself is expandable and I do not have to worry about not having enough space when I travel.
The external pockets of the bag can be stretched to fit the Peak Design Travel Tripod (LINK) and a water bottle on either side to quench my thirst during shoots. All the other external compartments are beneficial for storing smaller knick-knacks like keys, snacks, extra masks, hand sanitizer, etc. If you are looking for more storage availability, look no further! There are multiple attachment points located at the front to increase the capacity of the bag as and when necessary.
My experience using this backpack
It’s easy to assume that with such a sleek design, I would be able to stow all the gear that I need. Having this backpack daily, I realized learning to stow my gear was a journey on its own. Now, I have figured out which compartments work best with the melange of equipment I bring on my travels. With the ease of customization, I am able to rearrange the dividers internally when I need to.
Peak Design’s innovative space usage aids me in every shoot. Each shoot can vary greatly, but I am glad that I can customize my backpack without having to pull out luggage to make sure everything fits in. The travel-friendly design with 3 padded grab handles and storable sternum straps that easily snaps on, is one that every backpack should emulate.
Thoughts on Peak Design Everyday Backpack Zip 20L
Overall, I do have to say I am just so excited to bring this backpack with me on my travels around the world and in Singapore, thanks to the comfort and convenience it offers. I would highly recommend it to all my photography enthusiasts and professionals out there, it’s something you definitely wouldn’t regret buying.
