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.
