And ever since buying it this wonderful bag has been my go to bag. I have taken it out with me everywhere I have been since I bought it. I am talking every day.
It has been on every foreign trip, taking all the camera gear I want to in a carry on sized backpack.
It is my hand luggage.
Everything else goes in my check in luggage, which to be fair isn't a lot anyway. I put my Manfrotto tripod in my hold luggage, then when off on a shoot it is storred nicely in a side pocket.
I have also used this bag on every commercial shoot I have done since - it is plenty big enough for my go to gear. I leave everything else in the car. This leaves my hands free to get around construction sites quickly and safely.
And of course I use it when I am off out in the countryside finding nice things to shoot.
I love my bag. If this sounds like an advert for Peak Design then fine - I bought the bag and use it everyday - I am not being paid to write this. I am writing this because it is the best camera bag I have ever had.
The only change I would make to this bag would be to have the 30L one, as well as the 20L one I have, for the days when I want to pack a bit more gear in my bag.
And then this happened.
Last week in Spain during a bit of downtime one cloudy morning I contacted Peak Design as a small amount of stitching had come undone. The bag was still completey usable, and I do not think my gear was at risk, but I sitll wanted the bag repairing.
I wanted to know how I could get this repaired. I contacted Peak Design, enquiring about repairs. I filled in an online form (quickly on my phone), and get on email shortly after, saying that they would send me a new bag, and asked that I get a quote to return my bag!
And when I got back from Spain there was a card waiting for me from the courier.
Outstanding service Peak Design - thank you very much.
Now I need to sort out the return, and move into my shiny new bag!
