    So my Peak Design Everyday Backpack has arrived (20L version) and I am loving it so far. Initial thoughts:

    Great Things
    - Side access is so useful it is my default now
    - The dividers are great, took a while to set them to suit me and now they are really useful
    - The design and finish is excellent
    - I really like the catch, but since I use the side access I do not really use it anyway

    Things I should mention
    - I expected the inner pockets on the side flaps (where you put accessories etc.) I expected to be trimmed in orange as per pictures on the Peak Design website - they are only partially colored
    - I would like somewhere in the main compartment to clip the key safe thing

    Overall, I am very impressed. I'll update this after I have had it for a few weeks with pictures etc. If you have any questions please let me know. I am using it as an EDC bag (I am not a photographer).

    Well pleased !

    Those are nice looking bags. If the quality is proportionate to their straps and camera Shield, they should be great. How are the materials?

    I guess taste differs. I'm always happy when someone posts something else than the usual supects, though. I do like tactical gear. :D

    Strange as I think the best thing about them is the looks!

    Materials mate "good" and furniture (straps, clasps etc) are "great".

    What is the material? It looks like a sort of cotton twill but I'm guessing it's something more durable than that..

    Dan,
    Any updates on your thoughts of this pack? It's been on my shortlist for a while, but I'm concerned as to how it handles as an EDC pack vs. a photography pack? I would be carrying it as an everyday alternative to my other more tactical packs, and wanted to see how it's working out for you. Any feedback and pictures are appreciated!!

    I see it's VERY pricey online. Is it worth the $$$?

    Hi

    It's still my EDC and I love it. Few points could be better.
    I'm on vacation, but will do a full write up next week, with pics of course!

    Did you happen to post your update/load out pics somewhere with your thoughts as well?

    Hi Steeps
    I'm currently evacuated from my home after Harvey got us pretty bad. I will get around to it at some point - I have learned a lot about EDC and bail out after going through a real life evacuation. Looks like it will be a few weeks before we even get back to our home.

    Wow, I had no idea. So sorry to hear that. No hurry at all. Maybe you could start a thread on all that you've learned and drop a link to it here. I pray you will get back to your home quickly!
