Peak Design Everyday Backpack 20L

Peak Design Everyday Backpack [1] was born out of a Kickstarter [2] project more than two years ago. The Kickstarter project raised a total of US$6,565,782 from 26,359 backers for Peak Design.

There are two sizes of the Everyday Backpack, 20L, and 30L. The 20L retails for US$259.95 (S$353) while the 30L retails for US$289.95 (S$393).

Four colors are available for both sizes, Black, Charcoal, Ash, and Tan. I bought the Charcoal because it is their flagship color.

I am a Flickr Pro [3] member and you probably did not know that Flickr Pro member has a one-time 20% discount for purchasing Peak Design products. You can get the coupon code from your account page [4] under Pro Perks.

I used that coupon code to buy this bag, Peak Design Field Pouch [5], and Peak Design Leash [6]. That is the maximum purchase I can do without the need to pay 7% Goods and Services Tax (GST) back in Singapore. Delivery for all three items cost US$24.95 (S$34).

Here are whats included in the packaging:

Similar to the Peak Design Field Pouch, the outer material of the bag is 400D nylon canvas, and then the canvas is coated with Durable Water Repellent (DWR) for weatherproofing.

The first thing I notice about the bag is that there are many straps!

All the metal buckles of the staps are made from anodized aluminum with a sandblasted finish with a protective clear coat.

Hypalon is a type of synthetic rubber made from chlorosulfonated polyethylene, and only the Charcoal color has Hypalon touchpoints.

The zips on the bag are anti-theft. After zipping it up, you can buckle the zipper pull to the loops on the bag.

Both the left and right side pocket houses an external strap (for securing items like a tripod) and the removable waist strap.

On the left and right flap of the main compartment, houses pocket for you to hold small items like camera batteries.

The pockets have color indication so you can use it to differentiate between the fully charged batteries and empty batteries. Since I am not using as a camera bag, it is not that useful for me.
