Peak Design Launches Everyday Messenger Bag on Kickstarter
In partnership with professional photographer Trey Ratcliff, Peak Design has lunched a new camera bag, the Everyday Messenger via a Kickstarter campaign. The bag is designed to meet the requirements of not just photographers, but travellers, commuters and the creative class.
“I am sick and tired of camera bags,” Ratcliff exclaims in the Kickstarter video. “They are bulky foam cubes with messy dividers and tons of dead space. I am tired of switching bags when I am not shooting – I wish I had one bag that I could use every day.”
The Everyday Messenger features the new patent-pending MagLatch, a proprietary closure mechanism designed to allow blind, one-handed operation, and both semi and full lock engagement. The bag expands from 13.5L to 20.5L, utilizing a system of 22 foam panels that expand and contract cleanly, without losing shape. It is designed to carry up to a full-frame DSLR with 3 lenses and accessories.
In addition, the bag features 2 dedicated Capture clip attachment points for fast exterior camera access, a front access panel, a quick adjusting 2-inch padded tubular seatbelt-style strap, a removable waist strap, a 13-inch to 15-inch laptop pocket, 2 side pockets, and a weather resistant waxed shell with high-density padding.
The launch price of the bag on Kickstarter is pegged at USD 195 (approx. Rs. 12,425).
