The 13L ash-colored Everyday Messenger v2 from Peak Design is a versatile messenger-style bag designed for photographers, multimedia creators, or anyone else whose carrying requirements can benefit from its compressible, size-adjustable design that minimizes bulk or can be expanded as needed. Multiple magnetic latches for its front flap allow this bag to vary from 11.7" to 14.2" in height, while inside the main compartment, its two dividers can be configured according to the specific equipment being carried. The dividers are foldable, and can cradle curved surfaces such as the grip of a camera with an attached lens. During use, the foldable dividers enhance protection between those curved surfaces and adjacent items while minimizing the area between them for more efficient use of the main compartment's space.
Under the front flap, a wide opening for the Everyday Messenger v2's main compartment makes it easy to store and remove items. Located within the main compartment, the bag's dedicated pockets for a 12.9" tablet computer, a 13" laptop, as well as documents are positioned to rest against the wearer while in use, while a zippered organizer pocket along the inside of the front flap provides storage for pens, business cards, keys, and small electronics. A pocket with a zippered opening along the front panel which faces away from the wearer is a convenient space for books, notepads, documents, or snacks; and for larger items such as a tripod, monopod, or packable clothing, external carry straps are included to secure such items along the bottom of the Everyday Messenger v2.
While its padded, adjustable shoulder strap allows this bag to be worn along or across the body, the Everyday Messenger v2 can also be carried using its built-in top handle. For an enhanced fit, one of the external carry straps can be used as a waist belt to prevent the bag from unintentionally shifting around the wearer such as when riding on a bicycle.
Featuring a durable nylon construction, the Everyday Messenger v2 is built to be weather resistant. To further protect its contents should the bag be placed on a wet surface, the bottom panel is waterproof. When traveling with a rolling case that has a telescoping handle, a pass-through band across the Everyday Messenger v2's rear panel allows the entire bag to be mounted onto such handles for added convenience.
