Peak Design Everyday 20L V2 Overview

This 20L, black Everyday Backpack v2 from Peak Design is a versatile bag that is designed for photographers, multimedia creators, or anyone whose carrying requirements can benefit from its compressible, size-adjustable design that minimizes bulk or can be expanded as needed. Multiple magnetic latches for its top flap allow this backpack to vary from 18.3" to 22.3" in height, while inside, three dividers allow items to be stacked within the main compartment. The dividers also feature foldout surfaces that can be configured to cushion and hold items against either of the Everyday Backpack v2's zippered side openings. Since the side openings are positioned to face the wearer when the bag is rotated from one's back to front with either side facing upward, the dividers provide the ability to ensure which items can be most quickly accessed from the bag's sides.

When this Everyday Backpack v2 is worn, a zippered sleeve with dedicated pockets for a 12.9" tablet computer, a 15" laptop, as well as their chargers and cables rests behind the shoulders. To store and organize batteries, memory cards, small electronics, or personal items, the inside surfaces of each of the side openings include a both a slip pocket and zippered pocket. Along the exterior of the side openings are two large, open pockets that can each hold a water bottle, tripod, or monopod; any one of which can be secured using the included short external carrying straps with the gear loops located above each pocket.

Long external carrying straps are also provided. With the additional gear loops distributed along the surface of the Everyday Backpack v2, those carrying straps allow equipment, accessories, or packable clothing to be fastened against the bag's front panel. Alternatively, the long external carrying straps can be used as rear loading straps to secure items under the bottom of the Everyday Backpack v2.

The Everyday Backpack v2 can be carried using the wide, 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. During storage or transport, the shoulder straps can be magnetically fastened against the rear panel, which also features an integrated luggage pass-through, allowing this bag to be mounted onto a rolling case's telescoping handle for added convenience.

Featuring a durable, nylon construction, the Everyday Backpack v2 is built to be weather resistant. To further protect its contents should the bag be placed on a wet surface, the bottom panel is waterproof.

Peak Design Everyday 20L V2 Reviews

This is it! For years now!

I bought it 5 years ago, from the outside it looks like almost new - unbelievable. Then, this year a zipper broke and I had no direct proof of purchase, only non-direct. PD solved the proof and sent me a brand-new V2 without wanting back the old one. Unbelievable, and I use it for the way to my work, for short trips - it's so great and worth every penny. Thanks so much

The Photographers Must Have

It was the best choice to buy this bag, it makes the life of a photographer so much easier. Its so easy now to get the camera quickly out of the bag, cause you can open the sides of it. Also it has advantages in the daily life when you use it not for camera. The side-opening system makes sense for everyhing you carry in the bag!

The backpack I will use for the rest of my life.

This has become my every day bag for bike & car

I've been through a lot of backpacks, slings, etc. in the last few years and this is the one I take everywhere now. During the week it's my office commuter: plenty of room for everyday carry stuff (headphones, device charger, laptop/tablet, walk-around mirrorless camera, spare camera batteries, change of clothes, notebooks). On weekends, it's great for car camping with a slightly different loadout. Super easy to clean off, sturdy, strap system is great for lashing seasonal gear to it before heading out. I love all the storage pockets, and that they're stretchy and flexible. It can suit a lot of purposes.

Great versatile option for everyday and travel bag

I bought the black everyday backpack about a month ago and it has been a great purchase so far. I've used it on my day-to-day to carry my laptop, external monitor and additional media items (charging cables, headphones, notepad, etc). Everything fits and stays secured with their compartment system. The system that has allowed me to create different spaces for different needs. I've modified it to fit my day-to-day needs as well when I travel. Overall, it's a bit expensive for a backpack, but I love all the features that come with it.

Great travel pack. So many details.

I love things that are over-designed but still maintain an elegant execution. The everyday backpack is like that. Every element has a purpose. Someone clearly loved working on this product and it shows.

I’ve used tons of backpacks to house my camera gear and misc items for day shoots/adventures, this bag by far takes the cake. There’s a place for everything, the fact it’s small form factor in which everything’s accessible makes it my number one. Bag is durable, easily cleaned, well protected, fits a 16inch MacBook. Peak designs out did themselves my other go to is the travel bag, but don’t take my word for it go check it out yourselves, you won’t be disappointed.

Great Backpack

This is a great backpack for photographers! The different layers and levels are great for different lenses. However, I would prefer more flexibility for the dividers because some day-to-day items are hard to fit. I also got the Google collaboration special edition! Super cool design.

Can the 20L carry 3 prime lens, plus a R5 body with a zoom lens (100-500) attached), plus a tripod and random batteries, etc.? I am debating between 20L and 30L. I often carry all 4 lenses.

Yes depending on the size of the tripod. You can carry it inside of the bag, perpendicular to the bag with the top flap holding it on, or by putting it in one of the water bottle holders on the side.

My friends already used this bag as a personal item on International flights with a carry-on, maybe they got lucky. 20L maybe safer. Anyone else used the 30L or 20L internationally?
Asked by: Mohanad
The Peak Design Everyday 20L V2 falls within FAA guidelines for carry-on luggage; the 30L is technically slightly bigger than the guidelines. Because they are only guidelines, you should always check the specific size limitations of the airline you will be using.

Asked by: Patrick
I have taken the 30 on a flight, and here in the States, it was considered a personal item, but it is small enough to be considered a carry-on on most flights. Although if you are flying Ryanair, I am sure they will find a way to charge you. :p I had it filled with the following: 15" Macbook Pro 11" iPad Pro Sony A7ii with a Samyang 35mm 2.8 Toiletry Bag Light jacket (I did have to roll this tight.) 24 oz Hydroflask

This is the kind of bag I'm looking for. However, I want to put my Nikon D850 with the Nikon 70-200m attached into the bag. Can I do this with the 20L or should I get the 30L?
Asked by: Cindy
I purchased the 20L and it is a well made bag. Loved the material and overall the bag is well designed. However, I ended up returning it. I wanted to put my Nikon D850 with the 70-200mm attached in the bag from the side. The bag was not wide enough for me to do this so that the camera+lens fit horizontally, which is what I was looking for. It almost had enough room but I could not easily and to my comfort level zip the side. This is the only reason I returned the bag.
