Designed for the photographer, traveler, urban commuter, and everyone in between, the charcoal Everyday Messenger 15" Version 1 from Peak Design showcases smart features to meet your day-to-day needs. The Messenger holds a full-frame DSLR and up to three lenses, thanks to the three origami-inspired adjustable touch-fastening padded dividers. Simply remove the dividers if you prefer to carry books or overnight essentials. Your up-to-15" laptop can be stored separately in a rear, padded compartment with an interior sleeve for your tablet or important documents.

Smaller accessories like extra batteries, memory cards, or even a smartphone can be tucked inside the expandable front access panel featuring color-coded stitching to help you further organize gear. An interior slip pocket is suitable for a passport or extra cash when traveling. Additional small items can be stored in the slim zippered pocket under the messenger flap or in one of the two side slip pockets. Keys can be kept handy thanks to the hidden key/ID tether with an anchor link connector in one of the side pockets.

Inclement weather is not to be feared thanks to the weatherproof waxed 500D Kodra synthetic canvas padded shell and DWR undercoat. Exterior zippers are weatherproof, and stress points are reinforced and bar-tacked. A soft yet durable poly-cotton interior is gentle on your gear, and strap ends are tucked away into the sidewalls of the messenger.

The MagLatch adjustable latching system allows your bag to expand and contract without losing shape or sacrificing time transferring contents into another bag. A magnetic clasp and four ladder locking points create multiple options for you to secure your gear. Two dedicated capture clip attachment points and a top zippered opening allow for quick camera access. The 2" wide messenger strap easily converts into a low-slung shoulder strap, while a stabilizer strap can be worn cross-body for better weight distribution, or as a trolley strap for convenient coupling when traveling with rolling luggage.

Updated V2 features (May 2018): Luggage pass-through on the rear panel, upgraded FlexFold dividers, more durable fabric on small internal pockets, and upgraded weatherproofing treatment to the exterior shell

question

Is this bag large enough to carry a medium format digital camera attached with digital back and 80mm lens? The camera would be flat and placed lens down.
Asked by: Tom
Specifically - wondering if it technically would hold the Fuji GFX 100 - albeit funky - but I often need a low form factor day kit when I do not want to stand out with a giant bag....

question

Will this handle a canon 5d with a grip attached?
Asked by: Keith M.
Yes this case would fit a Canon EOS 5D with the Grip attached. I would check the sizing of your lenses too. So that measurement wise they will fit as well.

The text says that Version 1 will hold 3 lenses in addition to a camera, but that the Version 2 will hold only 2 lenses in addition to a camera? Is that right? Why?
Asked by: Lawrence
Sorry for the confusion! I would say that's potentially just an error on the part of the specs, but the amount of lenses this bag can accommodate will be based on the size of the camera and lenses. The origami dividers will comfortably support 2 lenses each, meaning 4 small/medium-sized lenses with a camera+lens attached sitting comfortably in the center. Your mileage may vary due to the size of lenses you pack in.

Has anyone fit a gimbal in this? I shoot wedding videos solo and it’d be nice to keep it on me when not in use.
Asked by: Mitch
Depends on the gimbal and what else you plan to carry with the gimbal inside the main compartment. Though in most cases, this setup should work.

question

What are the maximum dimensions of the laptop compartment? Looking to fit a 15.3 x12 x1 laptop
Asked by: jared c.
It won't fit at all. I've tried it myself with even a 14.9 W laptop. It will fit in the main compartment but you lose one side of velcro to attach the dividers.
