Messenger bags are my favorite style of bags because they are casual, don’t fall over when you set them on a flat surface and can hold all my gear with room to spare. Thousands of other people must also like messenger bags because Peak Design’s Everyday Messenger Bag Kickstarter campaign has already raised over $1M in the four days since it was launched. After checking out all the features that this bag offers, I can understand the excitement. First of all, the bag looks great. It is made of water-resistant waxed canvas and will be available in charcoal and tan colors. But the little details are what interest me most. The expanding capacity, pivoting shoulder strap, magnetic latches and foam dividers are just a few things I can’t wait to see in person. This bag has been designed for everyone, from photographers to travelers to gadgeteers like you and I. A pledge of $195 will reserve one bag in your choice of color, with shipping estimated for December. Peak Design has had several successful campaigns, so I have no worries of recommending this product even without trying one in person. For more info head on over to their Kickstarter campaign page.
