Peak Design recently updated its line of successful everyday bags, and with it the Everyday backpack. Build quality is consistently excellent, with a DWR-impregnated polyethylene double-coated 400D nylon shell, 900D waterproof bottom liner, glass / aluminum-reinforced anodized nylon, and durable “UltraZips”. To top it off, everything is made from 100% post-consumer recycled material. If you already own the V1, no matter when you bought it, I assume it is still in good shape, such is the build quality of these bags. The Peak Design Everyday V2 Backpack is also built to last.

It’s hard not to love this bag’s sleek style, tactile materials, and beautifully crafted hardware. At 18 “x 12” x 7 “, it’s compact enough for a camera backpack, but can still carry a connectorless DSLR with up to five lenses. There is no front or rear opening, but large side flaps that allow very good mobile access. Inside there are internal dividers that form shelves attached to the front and back. This is a clever design that can be connected in thirds to allow a long lens to pass to one side, or it can be instantly segmented so that multiple small lenses can share a shelf. Up top is a large multipurpose area that can be expanded up to 8L thanks to a top flap with four locking positions. A travel tripod folds to the side, there’s room for a 13-inch laptop and tablet in the back, and you can even fit a small drone in the front. A base belt helps support heavier loads, and while it doesn’t have hip pads, it can be fully carried.

Without the internal dividers, you’re looking at around 3.8 pounds (1.7 kg), but adding them brings the weight of the 30L version up to 2.11 kg (4.65 pounds). It’s not heavy for a 30-liter backpack with so many features, but it’s certainly not light either. Think about how you plan to pack it and if you need it within the airline’s strict carry-on limits, and you should be fine.

Think Tank Photo Streetwalker Pro V2.0 Backpack

Think Tank TT476 Streetwalker...
  • Soft and shaped with minimalist exterior look
  • The zipper opening to the main compartment can be worn when not in use
  • Dedicated pocket to carry a professional-sized camera equipment

The Think Tank Lines StreetWalker is a compact and city-friendly option. Its narrow 25 cm external width allows it to stay clean; Although this limits the internal layout to two columns instead of three, these are wide and deep and will perfectly house a pair of full frame cameras with large diameter lenses; one down, the other up. Depending on your lens choice, the additional dividers can fit around additional optics. You can also attach a tripod to the front and there is room for a 10-inch tablet in a pocket on the back. Access is through a single convenient front cover. You don’t have a belt, but the shoulder straps and back padding are great.

The great thing about Streetwalker Pro V2.0 is that it doesn’t necessarily look like a camera backpack. If you don’t like to advertise the fact that you are walking around with a ton of photographic equipment, you will love its simple yet highly functional design. It is an excellent option for urban photography, as there are no buckles or straps to get caught. Unfortunately, there is no waist strap, but the shoulder straps have good padding to maintain comfort. larger items. You can install two full-frame cameras (one face up and one face down) inside the internal two-column pocket. There is also a place to put a tripod and a tablet sleeve for devices up to ten inches.

The WANDRD PRVKE 31 is our pick for the best overall camera bag! With its impressive design, excellent protection and great customizability, this backpack will appeal to both casual and professional photographers. At first glance, you will notice how beautiful the WANDRD PRVKE 31 is. Its minimalist cosmetics make it look very elegant and sexy and we personally love the all black shade. This bag doesn’t sacrifice any protection for aesthetics either – the WANDRD PRVKE 31 still does a very good job protecting your gear thanks in part to its high-quality materials and excellent overall build.

In terms of ergonomics, you can access the WANDRD PRVKE 31 through three different access points distributed throughout the bag. Most of these entries are very intuitive, although accessing them can be a bit tedious for some users. In addition to these access points, there are tons of additional hidden pockets, as well as many other points for mounting various accessories. Wandrd sells the Prvke 31 alone or it comes with useful accessories. The Prvke 31 Photography Set includes a belt and accessory straps, plus a medium camera hub insert designed to hold your camera gear. This makes it a versatile option.

A great choice if you always seem to need to squeeze one last thing in, as the roll-up top compartment can take the capacity from 31L to 36L. It’s perfect for adding an extra accessory or another layer in cold weather. There are also two versions of the Prvke, the Prvke 31 and the Prke 21. The 21-liter capacity Prvk 21 is a good choice for everyday use, while the 31L Prvke 31 is ideal for more serious days of photography. .

The bag is made from Robic 1680D ballistic nylon and waterproof canvas with weather resistant zippers. This means it’s easy to clean, and while a rain cover is included, it withstood a severe downpour or two in our tests without it. Your gear is neat and secure in the rear opening main compartment, but the side opening lines up with the side opening of the medium camera cube, so you don’t necessarily have to put down your bag to get your photo or lens device. There’s also a fleece-lined laptop compartment, a large zippered front pocket, and a small zippered pocket on the back, perfect for storing your passport or money.
