Trey’s Camera Bag
I have only a few bad habits, and camera bags is one of them. Even worse, I’ve gone vertical with my habit by teaming with Peak Design to make some of the best camera bags in the world.
My theory is that it’s hard to find the perfect bag for every situation, so I choose the best TWO from our line of FIVE bags that meet my needs. Well, I actually choose three. My three are the Everyday Backpack (20 Litre size), the Everyday Sling, and the Everyday Messenger. I’ll describe my three use cases below.

Four new bags launched
After the success of the original Everyday Messenger we launched four additional bags! Go check it out — I’m sure you’ll find a bag you like. As for me, my main bag is the Everyday Backpack, but I also use the Sling quite a bit for little outings. There’s a bag for everyone, and they are brilliantly designed. I love our partners at Peak Design — what an awesome design team! 🙂
Deep Dive into the Backpack
Here’s a video that talks more about the Everyday Backpack, since I know that is one of the most popular of the bags! 🙂
Deep Dive into the Tote
The ladies tend to be more into the Tote bags… but there are some dudes that like them too! Here’s more about them.
What about the Everyday Messenger?
The first bag Kickstarter went crazy with $4.9 million raised. It’s now available to all via this link.
Which Bags do I carry for what purposes?
I have three main bags for different situations.
My main bag is the Everyday Backpack (20 Litre — the smaller version). Inside here, I carry my mirrorless full-frame camera + four lenses + 15″ Macbook Pro. I still have enough room left over for hoodies and other goodies. I’d say the camera equipment occupies about 70% of the bag so 30% is leftover for misc goodies. This is my main travel bag and the one I use on longer hikes where I need all my lenses.
My second bag is the Everyday Sling. It’s very lightweight and I use this for little jaunts away from home base when I only need 2 lenses and a few other goodies. I don’t need my big backpack with all my goodies all the time.
The last bag is the Everyday Messenger. I used to use this for all my camera stuff, but now I use it for clothes and other miscellaneous stuff I travel with. This can be anything from chargers to quadcopter batteries and all the digital errata which I am sure you have too! I also use this a lot for overnighter trips to hold all my clothes and toiletries rather than carry a suitcase.
