Peak Design Everyday 20L V2 Overview

The 20L, blue-colored, midnight 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

Functional but still looks amazing!

Purchased V2 of the everyday Backpack line. It fits my Sony A7C with three lenses perfectly. I use this backpack daily to replace my everyday messenger v1 since that is well-used and needs to be replaced. This backpack is perfect for my needs as a daily backpack that can function as a camera backpack when I travel. This is also the best-looking camera backpack on the market you can find!!

I bought this about 2 months ago and my experience has been great so far! Sectionalized organization is quite useful and keeps your gear safe. It is extremely feature rich, thoughtful design.

I got the 15L Everyday Backpack in dark blue, and I have to say, after having used it for TWO DAYS, (two!)--my other backpacks are now awful by comparison. I don't like my old backpack anymore! What? I completely regret buying them now! It's terrible! Thanks Peak Design! Thanks a lot!

Love the design and all the thought put into it. Can carry my camera around easily now, and have some extra space to put stuff in for my kids at the top. The only think is that while it says it works with 15in laptops, and it kinda does. You really have to shove your laptop in there. Probably some slimmer models would work better, but it is really tight. Can't help it I guess, but still, really tight there.

Not very often you can compare a company to pategonia but peak designs cares about their products and ensuring they make a positive impact on the world. Their products are top notch and I've become a huge fan.

I've been using the Everyday Backpack (20L) for about a year while I've been traveling full-time internationally. It's mostly been used to hold my computer gear and other items I want to carry on to flights/trains. I really like all the thoughtful design details and customization options. It still looks brand new despite constant use over the last year. I expect to have many more years of traveling with this backpack.

Great backpack that just wasn't for me

After realizing that the rough mesh back panel on my current Timbuk2 backpack was causing several of my clothes to pill, I was on the hunt for a new everyday carry pack. My requirements were pretty typical with one exception that I often have to carry two laptops. This Peak Design backpack really caught my eye with its spaceship-y look and unique origami divider design. I was really excited and hopeful for it to be the one so I gave it, in tandem with a Peak Design Tech Pouch, a try for a few weeks. Although it delivered in the aesthetics department and even had a few pleasant surprises (like the swiveling strap connectors and that it stands up on its own), I ended up finding too many flaws to justify the heavy price tag. - It’s too boxy. Every time I put it on, it felt like I was strapping a cardboard box to my back. - It has no external pockets. Everything you put in this pack goes inside the main compartment, and within that, optionally in one of the internal pockets. This means every time you want to access something, you have to open the entire main compartment and dig around. This might have been fine if the internal pockets were great but they’re fairly small and prone to having their contents spill out into the main compartment. The tech pouch somewhat solved this by co-locating most of my smaller items in one place (which I put at the top of the main compartment using an origami divider below it) but this then necessitated opening the pack from the side zippers for everything else. I think at the end of the day my inability to get used to the side-zipper-based access pattern was the primary reason for it not working out. - The origami dividers were not useful at best and got in my way at worst. I found myself occasionally wanting to pack something that wouldn’t fit without shifting around the dividers (which is a non-trivial task). My read on this was that the pack was designed very well for certain user segments (like photographers) but not for me. - The laptop pocket was too tight. It’s a small annoyance but one that kept irking me with each time I got and put away my laptop. Maybe this is unique to the larger 16” MacBook size but I couldn’t pull it out with rubbing my fingers against the (quite rough!) zipper. Adding in my second laptop only magnified this a step further. I’ll close the review with this. If your use case or preferences for a pack align with the unique single-compartment, divider-oriented, side-zipper-access design Peak Design went with here, this is a fantastic pack. If not, as was the case for me, I’d recommend continuing your search.

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?

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.

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.
