    For the sling review, please emphasize on what exactly the will the 3L version fit.. The other sizes are kinda what we already know from the V1 version.. If the 3L could fit a DSLR with a single lens sorta like the 5L that would be a game changer. That being said, if it doesn't, I feel like replacing the 5L option with 6L is a big mistake

    Do you guys think the 3L sling could fit a standard-sized DSLR (Nikon D5300) with a 50mm lenses mounted on it, if I place it sideways along with the bag? The 9:12 shot really gives me hope

    The zip looks a lot like wandrd duo, would be interesting to see a comparison review between them! Great vid btw! Keep it up!

    I love the new bone color, don’t know why they only use it on the 15L zip… would’ve been a no-brainer if 20l has it too

    Little disappointed with how they went with the tote line. Version 1 was an all-around that could be carried multiple ways (shoulder, cross body, hand carry, backpack). Now that you have two new separate totes, the carrying options aren't as versatile anymore (Everyday Tote's shoulder, cross body, hand carry VERSUS Totepack's backpack and hand carry). I hope Peak Design keeps version 1 of the tote indefinitely and doesn't phase it out.

    Currently have the 30L v1 Everyday for when I need more camera stuff, but considering getting the 20L everyday or 15L everyday zip for times when I want a smaller bag or as my main daily bag. If you do a review on either, I’d love to get the feedback on how useful the smaller bags are from an everyday standpoint. Super glad to see you guys get them early to review a bit.

    I’m most interested in the 6l Sling. I want to fit my A73 and 2 lenses with sd cards cords cell phone & universal wall charger. Hope it fits my needs. Looking forward to future in depth reviews

    Liking the updates they've made so far, but I'm concerned with how this will affect quality control introducing new colours and materials, let alone revised iterations of existing products.

    I own 5l sling, among many others from PD 🙂
    The 3l and 6l would work better for my needs: 3l as a f. pack, 6l for longer walks where I want to have my Contigo flask with me.
    All products are a good evolution of the previous versions. I already see myself finding excuses for the 3&6l 😉

    Please show how the 6L and 10L slings fit inside the Peak Design Travel Line Backpack.

    The old 5L sling used to fit perfectly taking up space at the top of the bag, above medium size camera cube. Is it possible to fit 10L to the same position in the bag?

    Thanks for great vids!

    I have the Sling 5L and have to say that the new Sling line makes so much more sense. The 5L is to big for my M43 camera gear, to small for my tablet and to bulky for a everyday sling. And don't get me started on the awful Hypalon quick-adjusters – I had to replace my strap with a Peak Slide Lite since I never got the Hypalons to work properly.

    The new improvements are great, and I like that Peak Designs is listening to the users. I will probably pick up the 3L and the 6L as well.

    Does the 6L sling for an iPad Pro 11”? I think the 5L cannot. Peak Design officially announced that it fits the iPad 10.2" which is taller and thicker than the iPad Pro 11" but slight smaller on the width.
    The other thing is for the everyday backpack (especially 20L), it seems that battery storage have been removed but the the PD tech pouch fit on the inside lying on its side (or facing down)?

    Thank you for checking.

    I’ve never owned a peak design backpack and would really love to see a full review of the 30L (including water bottle size compatible if there’s a water bottle compartment, I use the bigger Nalgene bottle), how to potentially pack minimal camera gear (Sony a7iii, battery, charger, external flash, one lens), with maybe a packing cube for some clothes for travel. And if it’ll fit the carry on compartment specifically for European domestic flights! If possible ?

    Can you talk about the V! every day backpack potentially letting water in when it is closed up because of the gap between the top and the side?

    Rather nice looking updates – curious about the slings – are they geared towards photography or can you easily carry an ipad (11) with some accessories?

    As a current V1 Everyday Backpack owner I have to say as of now I won't be getting a V1.5, I mean V2 bag. The main issue is they failed to address my complaint for years that you can't lock these bags up properly. Also the long pockets on the inside of the flaps was actually very useful, I don't find this new layout to be better. For example you could put a shotgun mic or small tripod in the side pockets of the V1, you can't do that now with the new one. Also those long pockets are almost undetectable if they aren't bulged out and someone isn't familiar with the bag and are essentially double pockets. I actually like the thin straps, I have worn my backpack for hours in multiple cities, countries and airports with my DSLR, lenses and other stuff and find they are nice and comfortable and sleek and quite well designed. Even with my DSLR hooked to the straps with my V3 Clip I walked for miles comfortably.

    The continuous zip bag is interesting but once you have that mag latch and you fly with it you will never want another bag again, that's why I put up with their non-locking bags. The first time I flew with mine and had it at my feet and realized how insanely easy it was to get stuff in and out with that top design and the mag latch, I knew I would never use another backpack to fly with again.

    I love Peak Design products but I live in Mexico City, so I've always held off on buying their bags because they don't seem to have any security features, sticking to Pacsafe products instead. As someone who rides public transit here, I'm always worried about pick-pockets, thieves can often zip open your bag and take your gear without you noticing! So with that being said, do any products in the V2 line have any security features? Are the zippers puncture resistant? Do they have tabs to slide the zipper under? Thanks!

    2 things…
    First of all I just noticed on the PeakDesign website that the Everyday backpack 2 is heavier, I'm sad for this one….
    Second, the top, when you open it, is it wider? cause sometimes I had trouble to put things at the top on my v1.

    Thanks for this review! The 3L sling looks very intriguing! I'd been hoping they'd make a smaller bag. A PD fanny pack would be next level. Like, 2L or something. Basically: pocket items + m43 camera. I've got the 5L and while I do love it, it's just slightly larger than I'd prefer for using every day (without being able to hold a water bottle). Going to give the 3L a try and see how it goes!

    OH and one question: does the 3L sling have that little back magnetic pocket in the main compartment like the 5L sling does?

    I will be posting a video soon on my site about using the original V1 everyday backpack for airplane travel specifically, but I will be curious to see the V2 differences in your full review. I recommend the larger 30L V1 for under seat use because the 20L was simply too small for my needs, although for most people the 20L is a perfect under seat bag.

    Having seen the Everyday Zip, the clam shell is a really neat idea but I have concerns about onboard aircraft use specifically.

    That said, I am intrigued by this design as the bag is narrower than the everyday backpack and may be a better fit for an under seat bag for airplane travel. I will wait for your full review to determine if I acquire the 15L or 20L for testing.

    Love the more comfy things on the EDBP, I stopped using my V1 because it was getting really uncomfortable really fast. Although I really dislike the new „flap“ interior, I really liked the old one.

    I have the V1 backpack. My biggest issue with it is the narrow opening of the external side pocket, which makes it extremely difficult to insert a water bottle. V2 version is supposed to have "more volume in external side pockets for water bottles…", but I would like to see a side-by-side comparison with V1 backpack, just to get an idea of how much space has been added to make it easier to put in a water bottle.

    Quick question, does the everyday backpack 30L fit a big laptop like a Dell G7? I have the 20L V1, but it was never for carrying the laptop, but I want to have my laptop with me if it fits.

    The Dell G7 is a lot bigger than the Macbook 16", not everyone owns a mac ya know……

    I like my v1 10L sling. It’s a bit snug for my iPad Pro so I’m hoping that they tweaked the shape to improve that fit. I never use the bottom straps so they’re just an annoyance that I can’t bring myself to cut off. I just get frustrated when the come loose and I have to curl them back up. Since I keep those tight and curled up the front pockets nearly useless. My last frustration is with the adjustable connectors on the strap that were supposed to be “set once” but inevitably slipped and had to be corrected or required a clunky hack to keep in place. It about a year and a half of haranguing their customer service about how it didn’t work as advertised, but PD eventually sent me a pair of nice quality clips that go over the buckles to prevent the straps from slipping.

    I’m very interested in your review of the 10L sling to learn how many of my pain points are alleviated.

    The everyday backpack zip got me very excited, thought it was going to be a bit more like the travel backpack. I hope they get to making V2 of their travel lineup with a similar approach, I do a lot of weekend travels and my dream backpack is a 20/25L version of the pd travel backpack

    What’s funny as soon as I saw Peak Design's announcement on the new bags I race over here to Pack Hacker to see what you have to offer, I saw, and as usual, you didn’t disappoint.

    The Everyday Backpack Zip is on my radar. I hope Tom models them on the Instagram page so I can see what the pack looks like on a tall person. Also good luck Rebecca in keeping the bone-colored pack clean in this bloody Midtown mud and grime that seem to be everywhere.

    I noticed in this vid you passed the dog park, Sheridan Court doesn’t know how I missed spotting Team Pack Hacker.

    Surely I can't be the only one hating the visually annoying and seemingly ever-present (regardless of how packed out the bag is) wrinkles/creases at the front of the Everyday Zip where it begins to curve inwards, or the sloppiness of the side pockets?
    The side handles look pretty inelegantly placed too and overkill, for a relatively compact bag.
    Overall it looks rather generic as well, if you don't spot all the small Peak Design features and branding.
    For EDC (i.e. non-camera/-imaging/-media) use, I'm underwhelmed.
