Peak design everyday messenger is quite popular in the market. Peak Design creates bags that are capable of meeting your business, travel as well as everyday carry needs. Peak design everyday messenger 15ismade for photographers especially. But anyone can use it. It’s a beautiful bag with amazing style and durable fabric.
MATERIAL AND DESIGN:
Peak Design is known for its high-quality bags and everyday messenger 15 does not disappoint. The exterior of everyday messenger 15 is made of400D nylon canvas that is weather-proof. There is high-density padding below the nylon canvas and waterproof zippers. On the underside, there is a leather liner to keep the bag from getting dirty and wet. There is a separate laptop sleeve at the back. So, you can carry a 15-inch laptop or iPad also.
Everyday messenger 15 has an adjustable shoulder strap that is made of seatbelt material. You can wear it however you like. You can wear it as a common messenger bag, on one shoulder, as low slung bag or use straps as waist belt. The shoulder strap is padded in the middle that makes it a lot comfortable. The aluminium handle provides convenience while adjusting the straps. At either end of the strap, there are precision hinges.
The Maglatch system offers great ease in opening and closing the bag. Even with one hand, you can easily open and close the bag. Plus! Maglatch is five times faster than other latch mechanisms for opening. There are four latches to either expand or contract the bag. The magnetic catch closes the bag. You will have to pull down on the latch to open and close the bag.
Despite having a good closure system, it does feel that secure. You’ll feel like you need to double-check the latch in order to make sure it is closed properly. However, it surely is a good one-handed mechanism.
The most amazing feature of the everyday messenger 15 is its flex fold dividers. They can be inserted with the hook-and-loop fasteners. The dividers create several shelves to keep the gear more organized. The flex fold dividers allow you to separate the kit not only from left to right but also from top to bottom.
The waterproof zipper allows you to easily take out your camera or other items from the interior. You can pull out the camera right from the centre of the bag. The front pocket has eight interior pockets. Four of them are red while the other four are green. It is a good detail added for photographers. They can easily separate the fresh and spent batteries and memory.
There is also an interior pocket inside the main compartment. You can put your credit cards, passports, travel documents, cash and phones there. Moreover, you can also carry a tripod. However, if you just carry a 15-inch laptop, the bag tends to fall due to the weight of the laptop.
What I like:
- So many pockets make it functional and versatile
- Sturdy and well-designed
- Lifetime guarantee for fabric, straps or zippers.
- Quality build and useful features
- Comfortable shoulder strap
- Feels big if you are short.
- Need to double-check the closure system.
- Feels heavy with 15-inch laptop and DSLR.
