Peak Design’s Everyday Messenger Baghas received an overhaul in the form of its Version 2 iteration. Don’t worry, it’s still way more than just a camera bag, only now there’s a few more reasons to love it. A more modern appearance and a number ofclever quality-of-life improvements offer an even more ergonomic and user-friendly experience. With room for your camera, 2-3 lenses, a 13-inch laptop, plus accessories and personal effects, it really is a bag designed for everyday use, no matter where your day takes you.
Customisable Main Compartment
The Peak Design Everyday Messenger has a semi-rigid outer shell for good impact protection and a well-padded interior. It holds a DSLR or mirrorless camera and 2-3 lenses, depending on size and set-up. The Origami-inspiredFlexFold dividers are removable and can bend and fold to help you further customise the main compartment, whether you’re carrying camera gear, lunch, or gym clothes.
Ergonomic MagLatch Quick Closure System
The famous MagLatch locking system is back and better than ever with a new and more ergonomic design that’s easier and faster to use than the previous rendition. Pop the bag open, grab your camera, then let it snap shut with its magnetic closure. There are 4 latch points on the bag, allowing you to expand the or contract depending on how much stuff you need to carry.
Easy Interior Access
The top of the Messenger bag has a quick access zipper that allows you to get into the bag easily, without having to open the main lid. This is great because it means you can get at your gear without having to fiddle around or take the bag off and put it down to open the latches.
Separate 13-Inch Laptop and Tablet Pocket
On the back of the Messenger, you’ll find a separate zippered pocket holds laptops up to 13-inches in size. Within this pocket, there’s also a sleeve for tablets up to 12.9-inches, like an iPad Pro. Not only is this great for taking your computer to work, it’s also great for drone operators using a tablet as a larger monitor when flying and filming.
Organised Accessory Pockets
Right on the front of the bag is a spacious and expandable pocket that features some internal sleeves and organisation to help keep smaller items in check. It’s ideal for chargers, external drives, cables, spare batteries, or even more traditional office fare like pens or notebooks.
Quick Access Side Pockets
Two side pockets are a quick place to stash small items like lens caps, cleaning cloths, or a little snack when you’re on the go. Inside one of the pockets, you’ll also find a handy keytether with Peak Design’s Anchor Link connector to keep your keys safe and secure.
Capture Clip Compatible
Also on either side of the bag, you’ll note a pair of inconspicuous reinforced EVA straps. These are intended as a mounting point for Peak Design’s separately available Camera Capture Clip or Capture Lens for rigid support and instant access to a camera or lens right on the outside of your bag.
Adjustable Non-Slip Shoulder Strap
The Everyday Messenger’s shoulder strap has received an upgrade that offers improved comfort and contouring, as well as better non-slip material to keep the bag in place. The strap length can be easily adjusted by flipping the buckle latch open, finding the right fit, then locking it closed again. This makes it super easy to keep the bag secure against your body, but also gives you the room to swing the bag around and access your gear without taking it off.
Tripod Storage Included
Hidden under the main lid is a pass-through sleeve where you canslide one of your tripod’s legs through to keep it in place on your bag. There’s also an included silicone bandthat fits around all 3 tripod legs to keep them secure. This solution is perfect for small or medium tripods, making them easy to carry and keeping them out of the waywhile you’re on the move.
Rugged and Weatherproof Design
The Peak Design Everyday Messenger’s design had a small make-over that gives it a more modern look. It’s now outfitted with super-durable UltraZips, made to withstand the punishment of daily use. The outer shell is made from double poly-coated Durable Water Repellent-impregnated nylon canvas formed from 100% recycled materials. So not only is this bag incredibly rugged and weatherproof, it’s also a more sustainable option for the conscious photographers out there.
