Peak Design has introduced new and improved versions of their Everyday bag range, bringing enhancements to old features and a fair amount of fresh, new additional ones too. We'll cover exactly what's new and improved for the three bag models we have on test, and these are:
 
  • Peak Design Everyday Sling 10L
  • Peak Design Everyday Backpack Zip 15L 
  • Peak Design Everyday Backpack 20L
 
Before we take a look at each individual bag, it's worth mentioning that Peak Design seems to be an environmentally conscious manufacturer, with the outer shell of the new Everyday range made from recycled plastic. They're also a climate-neutral certified manufacturer and 1% for the planet members, meaning they give 1% of their profits to good causes for the environment. Peak Design bags are now distributed in the UK by Transcontinenta
 
 

Peak Design Everyday Sling 10L 

 

The Peak Design Everyday Sling 10L is the smallest and lightest bag in their Everyday lineup. It's available in 3L, 6L and 10L sizes, and in black, grey or midnight blue. Here we're looking at the 10L black version. It can fit a large DSLR with 70-200mm lens attached, or a smaller camera with lens attached and 1 or 2 additional lenses or accessories. 

 

Peak Design Everyday Sling 10L Features


 

The Everyday Sling 10L has a zipped padded compartment on the front and a large main compartment containing a laptop/tablet compartment which can hold a 13-inch Macbook Pro. 

Included are two geometric dividers which can be split into two, providing a shelf-like structure enabling you to stack two smaller lenses on top of each other. These are fully removable and can be attached anywhere in the bag with tough velcro. 

On the rear, there's a padded carry handle which also doubles as a loop for attaching the back to a roller case and the shoulder strap, which has quite thin padding but does feel soft and moulds to the body well. The strap can be tucked away when not in use. It's connected to the bag on pivots, allowing it to adapt to movements from any angle. 

Also included are two cord hook external carry straps which can attach to the bottom of the bag via loops, enabling you to attach a small tripod or similar to the bag.

 

 

Key Features

  • 400D double poly-coated DWR-impregnated nylon canvas shell
  • Holds small DSLR with a lens attached and up to two more lenses/accessories
  • Features 13-inch laptop/tablet sleeve
  • Carry handle/luggage loop
  • Cord Hook external carry straps included
  • Durable zips, double zip for the main compartment
  • Weatherproof shell

 

Compared to the older model, V2 has a number of improvements including a better strap design with anti-slip strap adjustment, wider main opening with dual zip pulls for better access, and completely recycled outer fabric. 


 
 

Peak Design Everyday Sling 10L Handling & Performance

The Peak Design Everyday Sling 10L feels very well made and we've long been fans of the simple, geometric style they offer. The dividers which can be folded into shelves origami-style are a great idea which adds even more versatility to the build. 

The bag is designed to be worn as a sling, with the padding for the strap placed as such, so you can't really wear it as a shoulder bag. If you want to do this, the 3L and 6L models are a better choice. 

 


 

The build quality is immaculate - and the 100% recycled shell feels really tough and robust. Dividers are thin but shockproof, minimising the amount of space that they take up. The internal pockets are clever, with stretchy material creating space for battery packs and chargers. Access is ergonomic thanks to the robust dual zip and compartment opening that faces towards you. For security, the zip can also be threaded through one of the attachment loops allowing you to lock it shut should you require.   

 


 

There's not a lot we can fault with this bag - perhaps more space for personal kit as this is the largest Everyday sling currently available, but that's about it. 

 

Value For Money

The Peak Design Everyday Sling 10L is available for £117, from the Peak Design website. This is a lot of money to part with for a small bag, but when you bear in mind the lifetime warranty and superior build quality as well as the practicality of the bag, it could be the only shoulder bag you ever need to invest in. It could also easily be used for pursuits other than photography. 

Other bags with similar build quality but a more traditional design to consider would be Tenba's Skyline collection, offering a range of modern looking bags. These, however, aren't as ecologically minded and don't have a robust outer shell like the Peak Design offering.

Peak Design Everyday Sling 10L Verdict

The Peak Design Everyday Sling 10L is a great option for those that want to travel light. With an inconspicuous yet modern design, innovative geometric origami dividers and a 100% recycled outer shell that's weather-resistant, there's little not to like about this bag. Weighing only 880g, it's light for a bag of its size. 

Peak Design Everyday Sling 10L Pros

  • Ergonomic and innovative design
  • 100% recycled weatherproof outer shell
  • Versatile interior

Peak Design Everyday Sling 10L Cons

  • Not much space for personal effects
