Peak Design Everyday Messenger 15"

Peak Design recently released a whole new design for the Everyday Messenger (EDM) and there had already been a v2 minor iteration, but what I have is the original bag that kicked off PD's push into luggage.

On release, the mag-latch system allowing expandability and FlexFold dividers were key selling points and both are still holding their own in terms of functionality. Mag-latch in particular I love on both this and the Everyday Backpack for providing a lovely balance of ease-of-use, relative security and expandability that looks good rather than involves sloppy (to use a PD-favourite term) compression straps.

Sadly, after nearly 7 years of faithful service, the laptop compartment zip got thoroughly stuck while on holiday to the point I had to cut it open to recover my iPad. Peak Design was great and replaced the bag under warranty no problem, but they no longer produce this original design and so I got the new design 14" version, which has felt like a serious downgrade.
