Decent price for plus members.

Pack Hacker Review
Good lord why is it so expensive?
Nice and $376 doesn't compute in my mind. Lots of hype and fan boys more like it.
$376 is cheap for a good camera bag. I have one of these but I don't really like it that much for all day use, it's not that comfortable.
The Gura Gear bags are more comfortable in my opinion.
@Flyerone: i wish tom binh gear was actually easily available in australia.
that would be sooooo dangerous for my wallet.
@Jimothy Wongingtons: Yeah.. I've purchase a lot of TB gear over the years… and massively overpaid here in Aust by the time we factor FOREX and shipping… it makes the good bags & backpacks about AUD$600 landed. But… I've been happy with the value. Not delighted… due to the high cost. But the gear itself is quality.
@Flyerone: No it's not - not as a bargain (this site). If it's not comfortable how on earth could you call it a good camera bag? A few fold out divider flaps? Peak have a few great products - I think kudos from those has been transferred to this bag.
i love collecting bags, watches, camera gear, mtg etc - random potentially expensive hobbies that justify slaving away for minimum wage so these kinda deals make me happy lol
Great price for a great bag.
This is an amazing bag. I've had mine since the Kickstarter in 2016 and it has a lifetime warranty. I had my original bag (which I use for everything including general commute, holidays, weekend bag, and sport) recently replaced under warranty (the zip tag broke and warranty replacement was easy) so I now have this V2 bag, which is a great upgrade (which I got for free!) plus it also has the lifetime warranty.
The bag is intended for camera usage, but I use it for everything but! I work in IT and the laptop sits nicely, with heaps of room in the main bag for lunch, cables, chargers, etc I bought the waist strap, as I walk 6kms to work so shifting the weight down is amazing. https://au.peakdesign.com/products/everyday-hip-belt?shpxid=…
Theres a nice video here with the features of the bag.
But would you make this statement if you actually worked as a photographer?
I'm not sure what you mean. I'm simply stating my experience with this bag, and letting people use that information to help them decide. I'm not a photographer, so it's difficult for me to answer you question, as I can only make the statement as who I am!
A 32 minute video about a backpack!
Got mine more than 3 years ago and I love it!
What? The waist belt is not included and need to buy separately with another $40? Is this a joke?
This is undoubtedly an expensive bag, but I bit the bullet and got one about a year ago and really love it. It's incredibly well designed with a number of great features, but the ones that stood out to me on my recent holiday were:
1. Love the side entry and the internal shelves. I can organise things neatly and completely pack out the space for max usage, whilst still having everything totally accessible (bottom level camera, middle level nappy bag, top level snacks)
2. The top flap expands and contracts as you need it, meaning I never had to stress about cramming an extra thing in
3. Additional anchor points - I have carabiners on them so I can clip on things as needed
4. External straps - can very easily strap on stuff to the outside of the bag
On top of all that, has plenty of neat organisation pockets etc.
Having all that flexibility to expand when needed was a lifesaver on a lot of occasions for me as a dad.
Is it worth it? Hard to say, but I don't regret buying it. Comes down to your own use cases I guess.
