– (Michael Fisher) Do you
remember the TYLT Energi Pro that I reviewed last summer? It was comfortable. It was spacious. It was everything I needed
in a gadget bag for months. Well, you know what they say, better is the enemy of good enough. This is the Peak Design Everyday Backpack and if you appreciate
form as much as function, it might be your new everyday bag too. But you’ve gotta be ready to splurge. This is the Mr. Mobile review. (bouncy music) I mean it when I say you’ve
gotta appreciate aesthetics to make this worth the coin, because building a bag this sleek means building it a little differently. See, on most of my old backpacks, I’d gotten used to an
easy access top pouch for storing often used items
like jump drives or keys, along with front and side
pouches for larger stuff like batteries, tablets. Well, the Peak Design
bag has two side pouches but they’re too big for odds and ends. And with all the sewn-in straps, they’re really not meant for that anyway. More on this in a second. There’s a smaller one at the
top of the main compartment but you need to open up
the big flap to access it. So I’ve taken to using the big sleeve at the top of the laptop bay for all my dongles and peripherals. There’s more space in
the Everyday Backpack than there might seem. On my larger, 30-liter model here, the main laptop space is big enough to accommodate even the
15-inch Surface Book 2. And because only animals play
TIE Fighter with a mouse, the top front compartment is big enough for you to bring your joystick
along for the ride as well. Not that you would, but you could. The clever magnetic latch up
top has four size settings and you can open up either of the sides to see the Velcro-backed partitions that divide up the internal volume. Peak Designs origins are in camera gear and these are great for storing lenses and camera bodies, big or small. You can fold the dividers
along pre-scored lines to give you more options for subdivision and the inside of the side flaps also open up to expose a
ton of pouches and pockets. And the straps I mentioned before? They’re placed all
around the bag’s exterior so you can graft on bigger items like tripods or big water bottles. Okay, complaint time. Pack too much weight into
the Everyday Backpack and you’ll definitely
feel it on your shoulders. Helping with that is a chest lanyard that keeps the strain from
wandering too far outboard. But if there’s one Achilles’
heel to the whole experience, it’s these shoulder straps. Even if I wasn’t coming from
the luxurious gel padding of the TYLT bag, the Peak Design straps would still feel thin and sharp. It doesn’t usually bother
me with a normal cargo load, but on those occasions where I
do have to carry all my gear, it’s not as comfortable as it could be. I’ve carried the Everyday
Backpack for about two months and living in New England
in the springtime, that’s meant a ton of rain storms. Too many. I wanna move to California. But the point is the pack
handles it like a champ. The zippers are weatherproof and the fabric of the bag
itself is 400D nylon canvas, which has been treated to repel water. I’m a little more worried about
how well the leather accents will hold up after repeated wetting, but given how many compliments
I get on this bag in public, I wouldn’t change a thing about those or any other of its aesthetic touches. The Everyday Backpack
has a lot more features from Peak Design’s custom camera mounts to the anti-pickpocket loops
for securing your zippers. It’s available in four colors with the 20-liter priced at $259 and the 30L at a nickel under $290. Now is that expensive? Yeah. If I’m being honest, I couldn’t see myself spending that much on any backpack. But I don’t know, maybe
that’s why I’ve never had a backpack that’s this
attractive, well thought out, and waterproof to boot. And maybe more to the
point, I can’t name one I’d rather carry right now. So if you value thoughtful
design above all and your shoulders are beefy enough to bear those skinny straps, the Everyday Backpack
is worth saving up for. This video was brought to you by Thrifter. Thrifter is a new way to

    I don't tend to have a heap to carry with me, and haven't used a backpack since the first years of uni, so have been using an AtKM (who I'm not even sure exist anymore) 15" messenger bag for about the last decade. It's enough to carry laptop, sketchpad, pencil case, external HDD etc and does me just fine for daily.

    If you are hauling around thousands of dollars worth of equipment, a very high quality waterproof bag is worth the money. Those who go on the cheap (vs. inexpensive), are more likely to lose more money in the end when the bad rips, gets wet, or fails in some other fashion. I use a Northface media based backpack similar to the Surge Transit. It is less expensive, but is it is still solid and can hold my 15" laptop.

    My mobile office of choice is the triangle commuter bag. Once upon a time it was branded by Evernote, but now I have to get my replacement from Japan. It's certainly on the way small side but the convenience is worth it. I can open and access everything while I am carrying it and as soon as I set it down I can pop it open and get to work.

    I don't carry camera gear with me to work, and back, so I just use a grey JanSport Insider 15" Laptop bag I snagged off eBay for $27 shipped that has a lifetime warranty(I've used their warranty on my old bags, and family members bags)that's really good, all you have to do is tell them how the damage happened, and pay the shipping cost to them to either have it repaired, or replaced(their choice) after they send you a mailing bag, and so far my bag has held up for almost a year, and 1/2 with no real issues to speak of.

    Since you asked, I'm currently sporting the Field Bag by RAINS. It is fully waterproof, as are all RAINS products, and is more spacious than it may at first seem; so spacious in fact that it comfortably accommodates my 17 Inch laptop. The design is minimal and it can be purchased in a range of muted colours. Of course, being an architecture student i understandably bought the black variant. I would highly recommend for those wanting a stylish, minimal and waterproof backpack.

    Over a year ago I bought limited edition "Titanfall – OGIO," and it look great on Amazon website. I was wrong. It's the thinest backpack I have owned, and you would think that would be awesome. Nope! You can hardly put anything in their and the small pouches that it does come with is way to thin to put anything more than the laptop cable, mouse, CD drive, and the power brick that comes with my Dell 15" laptop. It's ok in the metro, but horrible for taking things because of lack of space.

    6 months ago, I was also searching for perfect backpack. For camera and some stuff on a trip, and for daily usage as well. I ended up with LOWEPRO StreetLine BP 250 which is in my opinion very thoughtfully designed as well. It can carry all my things, most of the time. Sometimes I am surprised how is it possible to carry so many things in this little guy (Camera, secondary lens, laptop, e-reader, 6 inch phone, chargers for everything, spare t-shirt, tripod or bottle of water, and many small things, like pen, spare bettery for camera, …).
    But when you put a APS-C camera and secondary lens in it, you will probably have a problem to put here all needed stuff for a weekend.

    I had Peak Design Everyday backpack in my eye too. But then personal liking (I really like desing of BP250) and price (less than half a price of Peak Design. At least in our country, not sure it is true for you too) made the decision.
    But truth is, sometimes I wish my bag to be little bigger.

    Good video, yet I'm not impressed by the backpack, probably because of the pricetag and cos Xiaomi one is cooler ( in my opinion and it's around 50$) and there's plenty other ones both cheaper, more practical and diverse in style to suit any taste…

    I don't own any of the above, mine is 12$ Firestrap® 🤣🤣🤣🤙 (had one for three years – loved it, still have it, but cos I used it almost daily – made it my second backpack 🤙)

    Any budget rucksack/backpack has some weight on them shoulders, waterproof or not… 🤙👌

    Mine isn't exactly a tech bag, but it works for how I use it. I'm sporting a Point 65°N boblbee 20L (formally people's delite). It's a hard shell backpack with multiple attachment points that accommodate several accessories. I've had the bag for over 10 years and recently replaced the harness (soft part that has the straps), and now the pack is like new again. Like the one in the video is not cheap, but I feel it's worth the price. It's a Very comfortable pack (even though the shell makes it a little heavier than most).
