Is there anything better than seeing a design team that's clearly obsessed with their product? Here Pete Dering and Art Viger of Peak Design break down their Everyday Backpack, which might be the most well-thought-out, functional and good-looking bag design I've ever seen:
This is actually part of a Kickstarter campaign for three different bags: The Everyday Backpack, Everyday Tote and Everyday Sling. They all look good, but the backpack is what I've been in the market for.
So, here's how I know I'm a bad person: As I was writing this up, I observed that the early-bird specials on the Backpack were disappearing, shrinking from 162 available to 120. So I immediately stopped writing this post, returning to it only after I'd taken the time to pledge. If everything goes right, I'll be getting the 20-liter-capacity Everyday sometime this December.
That the campaign will be funded is not in question, as Peak was seeking $500,000, and have already snagged about $3.5 million at press time. Those interested in pledging have got 16 days left.

This is a scaled down Arcteryx LEAF Khard 30, with cuter pockets and zippers. Much of the functionality including the side loading and adjustable internal spacing was done on the Khard several years ago. The Khard isn't as good for holding a laptop or tablet but odds are that mercenaries hiking the mountains of Pakistan don't need that feature. The CMF is nice on this bag though.
You are clearly a bad person, wielding your god-like journalistic powers to further your own end. For shame!
