Peak Design Everyday Messenger 5

Practical doesn’t need to be devoid of style, find the best of both worlds in the Everyday Messenger bag from Peak Design, created to perfectly organise your camera gear but equally useful for those lens free days.

The Everyday Messenger comes in Ash or Black and offers a maximum of 16L capacity, designed with renowned photographer Trey Ratcliff, it has been created to be accessible, protective and full of urban chic, it doesn’t scream photography bag which is handy for not drawing attention to its valuable contents. The MagLatch closure would also slow down anyone trying to access the bag who shouldn’t be, this rather unique fastening has adjustable settings for when you have a larger gear load (adding up to 6L), it needs to be pulled forward then down to release, this becomes second nature after a few goes and can be opened and closed with one hand.

The Customisable FlexFold dividers help you organise the interior to your specific gear profile be it camera, drone or everyday gear, there are dedicated sleeves for a 13″ laptop, tablet, or documents, plus stretchy internal pockets for smaller items like cords, batteries, water bottles, and lenses.

A turn in the weather isn’t an issue thanks to the weatherproof 100% recycled 400D shell, DWR coating and weatherproof zips. External carry capacity has been made possible by a stowable strap system with Cord Hook connectors and the external stash pockets, the entire bag is comfortable to carry via the padded handle or the removable, quick-adjusting padded shoulder strap. Weighing just 1.21kg even with all the dividers the Everyday Messenger is a travel friendly bag, the luggage pass through handle, 900D waterproof bottom liner and high-visibility grey nylon interior makes for a hassle-free journey.

Once opened the lid automatically springs back making it easier to access gear with one hand whilst the ridged construction lets you see your gear even when carrying the minimum, the leather detailing adds to the overall premium look whilst the soft padded shoulder straps makes for comfortable carrying for long periods of time. There are plenty of pockets to organise your belongings, including the discreet side pocket with detachable key holder, there is no excuse for losing your things.

This functional work horse is great for shooting out on location, travel, commuting, day trips and everything in between, it’s like a fashionable, hardworking P.A. without the coffee runs. RRP £179.00
