Peak Design Everyday Messenger Bag (Charcoal)
The Everyday Messenger is more than just an innovative messenger and shoulder bag, it's a giant leap for bag-kind.
We partnered with renowned adventure traveler/photographer Trey Ratcliff to create one bag that adapts to your gear and lifestyle, no matter where you go or what you're carrying. In doing so, we reimagined nearly every aspect of this classic bag style, from the MagLatch closure, to the origami-inspired FlexFold dividers, to the weatherproof expandable protective shell and hyper-adjusting internally padded seatbelt strap.
Dedicated Capture clip attachment points and front access panel are designed specifically around the photography workflow. This bag is for photographers, travelers, commuters and everyone in-between.
No leather is used in the production of these bags, therefore, they are suitable for Vegans.
FOR CAMERAS AND EVERYDAY CARRY
FOR CAMERAS, OR NOT
This ain't just a camera bag. With removable dividers and an internal layout designed around travelers and commuters, the Everyday Messenger is for everyone.
A PLACE FOR EVERYTHING
Stop wishing your bag had the perfect pocket for that one thing you always carry around. The Everyday Messenger has an intelligent layout with a unique and versatile set of pockets that can accommodate just about anything.
REVOLUTIONARY CLOSURE SYSTEM
MagLatch might be the only bag closure mechanism ever designed that is no-look, one-handed, quiet and secure. Features a magnetic clasp and 4 ladder lock points riveted to a stainless steel internal plate. The magnet catches the plate, creating a lock-free soft closure. Then, simply pull up on the latch and it will securely lock onto the nearest ladder. To remove, pull up on the latch handle.

As far as complaints - Its not super comfortable in the "short messenger" configuration. While that's might preferred length it can't wear it much more than 30 minutes like that. When you take the bag off the length also tends to adjust if you touch the buckle area. While I haven't noticed it to slip while wearing, I do wonder why you can't lock down the strap length. The front zipper pocket pull tabs came off the second time I used it... They snapped right back on but its a design flaw or poor QA. Really curious about this outer magnetic buckle. If anything will fail and be impossible to replace, my money is on that. While its over all a premium fit and finish I do worry about some of these little details.
Reports of cracked laptop screens also have me concerned. It does point to a design flaw when used in messenger mode and I am super aware of whats in there and how I might be putting pressure on it. I never had to do that with any other bag. While I give it 5 stars, there is room for improvement.
After 6 weeks I like this bag less and less. I tried hard to keep my initial enthusiasm but it doesn't live up to its purpose. Its uncomfortable to wear regularly and if you do anything more than walk a few blocks with it, you'll be wishing you stuck to your (ugly) ergonomic backpack. Take out the laptop and its a great bag. Add it back in and its not so great.
By the way, I bought this bag along with a Peak Design Pad Stabilizer, when I open it, wow, two cuts there already, what were those? Does your company have a quality control team???
The bag looks and feels to be of excellent design. It looks great.
The magnet lock system is AWESOME. Very easy and intuitive to use to open and close the main flap, and tighten the flap so everything inside is secure.
The collapsible velcro lining system is also brilliant! At first, I was a little underwhelmed with these things because they seemed a bit flimsy. But, when you figure out how much flexibility they can give you for inside storage, you realize how nice this system is, PARTICULARLY for "stacking" items on top of each other (i.e. keeping some lenses tucked in on a bottom later and folding part of the dividers over it to create a second level within the bag). For me, I keep 3 prime lenses on the bottom layer, each in a separate folded over compartment, and then just lay my Sony a7 with a 70-200 attached length wise on top of them (that's my "full" kit, and often times I wouldn't travel with all of that).
The strap system is very comfortable, offering several different positions to carry the bag. There are 3 lock positions on the strap that allow you to just clip one end of the strap for a very close fit (i.e. if you are on a bike and need the bag riding high on your back), a medium carry length, and a very low, waist level carry length. Personally, I prefer the middle one. But in addition to that, there is also a very intuitive and easy to use quick release latch for you to lengthen or shorten the strap as well. Very cool.
The tripod system is a must for me. Some bags have straps hanging on the bottom that you somehow are supposed to tether tightly to the bottom of the bag. Everyone who has used something like this before knows how unworkable that is. By keeping the tripod snug on top of the bag, it provides an actual solution for you to carry it securely if you need to with the bag (and not need to carry a separate tripod bag).
The one major con to this bag is, why no inside rain cover? Yes, its true that with the mag lock system, you can close the main flap pretty tightly, but, its still not "sealed" from rain or dust. However, what is most disturbing to me is that if you use the tripod carry feature - where one of the legs is secured under the flap of the bag - that means that any moisture or dirt on the tripod leg just drops right into the bag on top of your camera and lenses. Wow! Peak Design, what was your thinking behind omitting a second, optional inside flap to prevent that? To me, this is a significant flaw. They probably did this so one could easy reach into a closed bag through the top zipper to directly access one's gear. Still, having an optional inside zipper locked flap under the main one to separate a dirty or wet tripod leg from the camera gear is a HUGE miss!
The second flaw is that, although there are 2 compartments on each side of the bag, they are really not as functional as they could be. They did this, because, on top of each side pocket is a strap to secure a peak design camera clip, which, I presume, "needs" to be tightly secured to the body of the bag. Yes, that is a very cool feature, but it still limits the functionality of the side pockets, which really can barely expand to hold anything than maybe some papers, pens, etc. Nothing you would want to keep "safe" either since these items could potentially fall out too (i.e. you would never put your wallet there). I use one side pocket to stuff in a plastic rain protector, and the other, I don't use at all. It would have been super cool if at least for one of the side pockets, there was more flexibility so one could put in a water bottle. Now THAT would have been excellent - especially since this bag is targeted to the "adventuring" photographer who is out and about and needing to bring water with them! As I mentioned, yes these flaws may have been very hard to address given the fact that they wanted this bag to hold the camera clips, I assume, for people who wanted the bag on the right or left side. Still, the lack of at least one more functional side pocket is a significant omission for me. Your other option is to keep a water bottle INSIDE the bag, but again, do you really want to keep a water bottle that close to your gear? I don't think so!
Summary: Very nice bag, very cool features that make it very functional for people who use bags a lot, but missing some significant things as well. Pros outweigh the cons, however.
