Designed for the photographer, traveler, urban commuter, and everyone in between, the ash Everyday Messenger 13" Version 2 from Peak Design showcases smart features to meet your day-to-day needs. The Messenger holds a full-frame DSLR and up to two lenses, thanks to the two origami-inspired adjustable touch-fastening FlexFold dividers. Simply remove the dividers if you prefer to carry books or overnight essentials. Your up-to-13" 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

Good bag

Everything feels well made. No problems so far.

5 years on and still going strong

Bought the V1 back in 2016. And have never replaced it. It's been with me around the world as a daily office driver, camera gear bag, travel bag. Has its battle scars and dents but the overall reliability has never been an issue. I did had to replace the main strap as the rubber was melting away afters years of use and PD was graceful in send me the replacement for free. It rocks like it says, lifetime warranty to stay with you.

This bag is my go to for day to day life. It's also the perfect bag for going out shooting for a day or even just a couple hours. Enough room for everything you need and enough organization to keep everything easily accessible. It's comfortable and quick to access every pocket.

Strong, excellent quality and good looks

It won't take a DSLR with a zoom lens on but works fine for a body and two lenses or a flash unit. Very comfortable to carry and useful beyond photography gear purposes.

I am a wedding photographer, it is important for me to have quick access, photo equipment was protected, and my back did not get tired after a whole day of photography.

Version 2 is really V1.5

By Spencer
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-04-07

This is an amazing bag, I purchased a close out V1.5 (advertised as V2) and it's so much better than the "new" V2 bag - the interior is a bit of a hassle to get working depending on your lenses but it's quickly reconfigurable and you could always use other brand dividers if the peak origami ones aren't working for you.

Great bag!!

I bought the bag used, but in like new condition. it is a great size for my Fuji setup. I can keep the camera with lens mounted, and 4 other lenses in the bag. I did upgrade the dividers to the newer style Everyday Messenger dividers with the fold down tops.
