Peak Design Everyday Sling - Not for Me

If you follow me on Instagram you can see that I travel a lot. When I travel I bring as little as I can so I'm not carrying a lot of weight. I thought the Peak Design Everyday Sling would be a great bag for me in my travels, but it doesn't work well for me. 


The Everyday Sling is a great camera bag if it's the only bag you're traveling around with. I can fit my Fujifilm X-T2 with couple of lenses, my iPad mini, and some other accessories and walk comfortably throughout the day. It also fits well on my back after adjusting the straps. 

When I travel for three to four days at a time I carry my clothes, toiletries, and chargers in a Osprey Farpoint 40 Travel Backpack. I can even fit a business suit in the backpack.

Carrying both the Everyday Sling and my backpack is uncomfortable for me. With my backpack on the Everyday Sling sits on front of my right hip, not on my side. It provides a nice arm rest, but limits my mobility. When going through aisles of an airplane I have to the Everyday Sling in front of me because it hits the seats. This bag on my side makes me wider and at times I accidentally hit people and hot drinks when turning around. 

Overall, the Everyday Sling is a great camera bag, but can be cumbersome when traveling with a backpack.
