About Peak Designs

When you think of travel essentials, think of Peak Designs. This is a brand that makes durable and lightweight gear for creatives-on-the-go. Their products allow photographers to comfortably carry and protect their expensive tools while out in the field—without feeling bogged down.

From Kickstarter to Trendsetter

Peak Designs was founded by Peter Dering in 2010. He had just returned to San Francisco after four months of intensive globetrotting. Accompanying him on that trip was a heavy-duty, highly reputable camera bag. It promised to keep his expensive camera safe from harm. And it did—but there was one problem: It was heavy as hell to lug around.
So Peter did what any of us would’ve done in his shoes: He quit his job and spent the next 10 months prototyping his first device, which he christened the Capture. Crowdfunding his project on Kickstarter, he eventually convinced other adventure photographers to give the Capture a go in the field.
The feedback was unequivocally positive. People loved the streamlined design and unencumbered feel of the Capture device. You might even say that it turned out to be the “peak design” of camera carrying solutions.
Now, over a decade later, Peter and his enthusiastic team continue to create and ...refine their evolving line of camera gear, from simple cable clips to the ultra-protectiveCamera Cube.

Is Peak Designs bag waterproof?

While Peak Designs products do contain some waterproof materials (such as zippers), their products are decidedly water-resistant. This means that you can trust your Peak Designs camera case to protect your gear in mildly foul weather, but not in a torrential downpour.
Still, this is good news. It means that even something like the simple and unobtrusive Field Pouch is water-resistant. So whether you’re storing cables, everyday gear, a pricey lens, or any other items, the Field Pouch will provide peace-of-mind in the face of inclement weather.
