A new bag from Peak Design - this time, just what I need, a TRAVEL BAG!

This new Travel Backpack is different from their previous bags because it moves away from being camera-centric into your main bag for travel. The best thing about this new bag is the versatility in that you can smash a ton of stuff in there (organized or unorganized) and then slim it up after arrival to use as an everyday bag.

I point out "Organized or Unorganized" because that really appeals to me, since this dichotomy describes me perfectly. I often start out a trip very, very organized. Everything is in its place. It's like building a dollhouse for grown-ups. But then, despite my grand plans to stay organized, entropy sets in, and things get a little messy. I like that it's more and more like a duffel bag.


Right after Burning Man, I have a 100km hike coming up in Spain on the famous Camino trail. This will be the perfect addition to the trip. I'm already daydreaming about how I will pack it. I'm racked with certainty and uncertainty, packing this new travel bag is like a microcosm of my life.

On other trips, I like the idea of packing a bunch of stuff and watching it bloat up with goodies. Then, after I get to the hotel, I can leave a lot of the stuff in the room, slim up the bag and use it as a camera bag.

There are a ton of little details I love. For example, the toiletries kit you can hang in your bathroom. Smart. I like that tech pouch too... it'll hold all those little annoying things you have to carry around. Oh, and I like that small Camera Cube as well... fitting my Mavic kit perfectly. And you can pack away the backpack straps so they're not flapping around out there. Anyway, I could go on and on!

Go visit their Kickstarter page to see all the features for yourself! is a personal blog where Trey puts up a new unique photo every day and writes about the art, the technology, and the story of the adventures. Actually, this is Trey writing about this in third person. Both Trey and I appreciate your support very much!
