Peak Design’s Everyday Sling 5L bag makes downsizing fun

At least I hope the Peak Design Everyday Sling 5L will make downsizing fun because they sent me one to try and I’m going to put it to the test next week by leaving my full-sized Timbuk2 messenger at home while I use the 5L in its place. This is PD’s smallest bag which has been designed to carry camera gear, small drones, up to an 11″ tablet, and your EDC.

The Everyday Sling 5L features Peak Design’s FlexFold dividers which allow you to customize the interior of the bag and reconfigure it as needed. The strap offers multiple carry styles from crossbody to even waist carry.

Peak Design’s well-made functional bags aren’t new to me. I’ve reviewed their Everyday Messenger Bag and their Everyday Tote bag. But the Sling 5L is significantly smaller, so switching to it for even one day may be a challenge. But it’s a challenge that I’m happy to accept as it will make me examine what I really need and what I think I need to carry with me each day. Stay tuned for my review coming soon!

  2. I have found that I typically toss stuff into a bag that I rarely access if I have a large bag. The size of the screen has started to be my deciding factor on which bag I carry. Unfortunately, I am now working where there’s a chance I should take my work laptop home, because some event may cause me to need to work from home. Weather, a network outage, or anything that spikes calls to our help desk means I may be asked if I can cover the phones. Having that laptop means overtime pay, so it’s easy enough to slide it in my backpack on Friday night. But that means this gaping maw is there to potentially catch other things as well. Enjoy your trip down the path to downsizing! I’ll be interested to see if you stay, or just become a frequent visitor.

    1. My biggest issue with carrying a small bag is fitting my lunch in it. 😉 That will be the challenge as I take my lunch most days. Or maybe it will cause me to go down a rabbit hole trying to find smaller food containers!
