When my boyfriend got Peak Design’s Everyday Backpack back in March…April, something like that, I really thought he had gone mad. To be fair, I wasn’t at all familiar with the backpack scene back then. I had my trusty Everlane backpack, which had served me well over the years. And at $60, I thought that was as expensive as backpacks could get. So after hearing that my boyfriend shelled out $250+ on a photographer’s backpack, I thought he was out of his mind.
Anyway, long story short…the backpack finally arrived, and the obsession began. Not my boyfriend’s obsession with the backpack, but my own. Yes, yes, call me a hypocrite. But I soon came to see the genius of the design. The backpack is lightweight, sturdy, expandable, and the customizable compartments on the interior are actually the best thing since sliced bread. Makes getting things in and out of the backpack so much easier, especially from the sides. It’s a new way of organizing that doesn’t involve more zippers, pouches, etc. Genius. The backpack is also waterproof, so you don’t ever have to worry about the contents inside getting wet. I’m sure there’s still a lot more to the functionality of this backpack that I have yet to make use of, but PD has a detailed 30 min. video that explains everything you could possibly want to know on their website here. Enjoy.
So…yes, I ended up getting my own Everyday Backpack not too long after. In a different color and smaller size. I’m 5’7”, and I found the 20L to be the perfect size. And it can still fit a pretty hefty amount. My boyfriend’s 6’5″, and the 30L is just right for him.
We recently took a trip to Switzerland with our backpacks. Got a little carried away taking photos of the backpacks, so enjoy! (The pictures up until this point are from Peak Design’s website, and I take no credit).
