Digital Camera World Verdict

Aimed at photographers with mirrorless and smaller DSLR kits that want options, the Everyday Backpack 20L fulfils its brief while always appearing to be more about hardware quality than comfort. Yes, it’s great to be able to access equipment from both sides, and the FlexFold dividers are a fine idea. But it all seems a little fussy. The upshot is that you have to spend significant time with the Everyday Backpack 20L before you’ll truly know how to set it up for your gear.
