Peak Design Travel Backpack Overview

The sage-colored Travel Backpack from Peak Design is a bag that can serve as the core of a versatile transportation system for photographers, multimedia creators, and dedicated travelers. Expansion zippers along its spacious main compartment allows this backpack to increase from 30L to 45L in volume, while inside, a zippered partition system forms an optional front and rear divider. To further enhance the ability to organize this bag's contents, separately available Peak Design compartments that are specifically designed to store camera, video, audio, and digital media equipment, as well as apparel or small electronics can be arranged within the Travel Backpack to create a customized carrying solution that can be changed as needed.

When the Travel Backpack is worn, a sleeve with dedicated pockets for a 10" tablet computer and a 15" laptop rests behind the shoulders, within the main compartment. A front-facing pocket is included for items that need to be accessed quickly and conveniently, such as a pair of sunglasses or music player earphones, while hidden side pockets can be used to safely hold a passport, a phone, or other items that benefit from a higher degree of security. Also along the sides of the Travel Backpack are two large, open pockets that can each hold a water bottle, tripod, monopod, or trekking pole; any one of which can be secured using a locking strap above each pocket.

If placed on the ground or a flat surface, complete access to Peak Design compartments or items placed directly within the Travel Backpack is provided by a zippered panel that faces the back, as well as the front panel which unzips to also reveal four zippered mesh pockets that can be used to store and organize batteries, memory cards, or small electronics. When partially opened, the rear panel's zippers allow a laptop or tablet computer to be removed from or placed within the laptop and tablet computer pockets through the top of the Travel Backpack. The main compartment can be reached even while carrying the Travel Backpack, through zippered side openings which are positioned to face the wearer when the bag is rotated from one's back to front with either side facing upward.

The Travel Backpack can be carried using built-in handles along its top, sides, or by its adjustable, shoulder straps. For heavy loads, this bag's sternum strap can be used to more evenly distribute the weight being carried, while a waist belt transfers weight to the hips for additional comfort, and helps to limit unintentional shifting around the wearer. During storage or transport, the straps and waist belt can be tucked behind the rear panel, which also features a built-in handle that can be used as a pass-through, allowing this bag to be mounted onto a rolling case's dual-column telescoping handle for added convenience.

Featuring durable, nylon construction, the Travel Backpack is built to be weather resistant and is compatible with a separately available rain cover for further protection from the elements.

Peak Design Travel Backpack Reviews

So far so good

By Aliquisafrica

Traveling to very remote areas of the world on public transport, I’m always looking out for the best luggage. At the moment I’m in Italy and so far very pleased with my 45L—the “two” compartment approach is very useful in organization. As always, I’ve overpacked so the backpack is heavy but so far this does not appear to present a problem. All in all, a very competent addition to robust luggage.

This thing is unbelievable!

What an amazing product. I am able to fit so much in this bag with a very small footprint. Lots of pockets and compartments to keep my smaller items organized as well. I love this backpack!

Best I've owned. (and I have owned many)

I own two of these bags. One I use for my Camera equipment when I travel and the other for my Amateur radio equipment when I go portable. Fits all my stuff. Thinking about the 30L bag when I don’t need to carry as much.

Bought for Trip to France

I bought this bag so I could reduce the size of my checked bag. I was able to pack everything in a carry on size bag and this back pack. I love all of the compartments and that it is not too bulky despite its size. It is well made and I expect to use this for a long time!

Just What I Needed for Weekend+ Trips

By SBM3

I was feeling discouraged with my old weekend bad -- It had two large compartments, and I found it difficult to pack / remember where I left things. I use packaging cubes, and they just didn't fit my old back. This bag is so much better. The ability to add items to one large compartment made me able to stack my packing cubes. Additionally, I could take my cord case from my other backup and just slide it in -- it fit perfectly. Lastly, my toiletry bags fit great in the front portion. This was just what I needed. The ability to hide straps was an add on bonus, as I often have to put this on top of a proper suitcase. That was great too. And, in the end, when I was done with the bag, everything could be removed easily and it could be stored. Overall, I'm super happy with this purchase.

The best bag I have ever had

I have been using this bag for about a month now and can confidently say it is the best bag I have ever used. I purchased it with a Camera Cube and a couple packing sacks and it is a dream to use. I don't have to worry about over-filling it because it expands in multiple ways! I can un-snap the top to open up room at the top and unzip the expander to create room across the entire bag. It can do it all! From a short weekend trip to a more extended adventure, you can fit everything you need in this bag. The strap design is incredible and extremely well thought out and engineered. The straps tuck away behind magnetic padding when they are not needed. The bag is compatible with other products such as the camera cube and with the C clips that come with the camera cube, they fit together like a dream with immediate side panel access to my camera and lenses. The overall quality of materials and construction is the best I have ever used.

Love the versatility

I haven't traveled with it yet but soon. I have it packed for the trip. Lots of room even with the medium camera cube. Since I am taking it as a personal item I have to resist the urge to use the full 45L. I do love that way it reduces in size so I can do that. So far I love it.

I have read mixed reviews of the hip/waist straps. Can anyone comment on whether they help to distribute the weight comfortably?
Asked by: Toby
It does help quite a bit to distribute the weight evenly, but keep in mind it is a bi smaller and less padded than most would expect. Better for every day commuter shooters and not as comfortable for long hikes.

I've been on a quest to find the perfect bag. I have the Atlas Adventure Pack and the Peter Mckinnon Nomatic. Both have a depth issue. My 5DMIV with battery grip doesn't fit well. Put a decent sized tripod plate on and forget it. Can anyone shed light on the depth for this?
Asked by: Chris
My 5D3 with grip and 50mm 1.2L lens fit perfectly in a on-side orientation. Theoretically you could put a larger lens and fit as well. Bag is very roomy. It works largely on the insert systems so I recommend going to the manufacturer site and looking at the depth for the insert you wish to use to see how it will fit. Also Peak Design is one of the best companies when it comes to how to videos. Search them on YouTube and they will have many videos of their products and different fitments for many popular hardware.

Can this bag hold a 600 mm lens? If not, what's the largest lens the bag can hold?
Asked by: William
Peak Design Travel Backpack (Black) does not include any dividers though. Usually an option with dividers is purchased so that it can better hold the lens. For example this one comes with the medium dividers. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1456246-REG/peak_design_peak_design_45l_travel.html The medium dividers measures only 11 x 11 x 6" so it would fit a smaller lens for example 70-300, but it depends on the exact lens you are looking for because there are larger and smaller 600mm lenses in the market.

Can this bag be a personal item, and fit under the seat of an airplane?
Asked by: Erin
No, the Peak Design Travel Backpack at 22" x 13" x 9.5" in its smallest configuration would be to large to fit under most every airline seat. However, it would be OK for overhead carry-on on most domestic airlines.
