Quality Sling Pack
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I'm not a photographer but I got this to carry my EDC stuff. Its about the same size as m Aer sling bag but this one from Peak Design is much better organized and much more comfortable, too. I can tell that it would be great at carrying smaller camera gear but that's just not me so I can't comment on that part. For everyday use though, I give it an A+. Its got a very slim profile and not at all like most camera bags though. Its also not tactical at all which is a nice change for me. It swivels nicely on the body so its quite comfortable even with a few pounds of daily carry gear in there. I love the zippers, the way the large pocket opens, the material, the strap, the way the strap wears well, and the overall look , too. It converts to a fanny pack if you need it but that isn't how I use or plan to so that feature doesn't really do anything for me. Its pretty cool the way they designed it to be flexible enough to do that well though. Its also got a great carry handle that I didn't think I'd like at first but I use it all the time and think its excellent. I use the handle for short distances instead of slinging it over the cross body or one shoulder. From the house to the car, for example, its great to have that handle. Its little details like this that makes this product so excellent, I think. They say that the difference is in the details and it is evident here! On a regular basis, it very comfortably and attractively secures my iPad mini, phone, wallet, keys, and a few other smaller items.
I get questions and compliments on this because its so attractive. It didn't hurt the compliment list to select the sling in the sage color either. Its a very different color than most bags and I'd say its a unisex color if any ladies out there are interested in a sling, too. I highly recommend the product and the excellent service and shipping from Backcountry. It comes packages so well and it even comes inside its own shipping bag which is a new one to me. Very cool, really! The only negative (if you want to call it that) is that I didn't get any of my usual goat-worthy stickers and decals this time. Hey, Backcountry...its not too late to send me those stickers if you are reading this. :)
Wanted to love
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
I love Peak Design and I really wanted to love this bag. I picked this up with the intent of it becoming my go-to travel bag. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the build quality, but unlike most of their products I'm not sure this one was thought out enough. The main compartment would be great if the camera was not attached to the lens, but then that defeats the purpose of a shoulder bag. I have both a mirrorless and DSLR and it didn't seem wide enough for the mirrorless to fit without applying pressure to the top or side of the camera. I looked into the 10L version and it fits the camera better but the bag is just too big at that point. The one thing I absolutely loved about this bag is the small accessory pocket. Perfect for spare batteries and small cables.
I know people who have this bag and love it. I just couldn't see it working for me in the long run. Looking forward to seeing what else Peak Design does in the future.
