New: Peak Design for Leica backpack

Leica Camera and Peak Design have teamed up to offer the Peak Design for Leica Backpack Capsule.


Leica Camera and Peak Design have teamed up to offer the Peak Design for Leica Backpack Capsule. A very limited quantity of the Peak Design for Leica Backpack Capsules will be available exclusively to Leica Stores and Boutiques in North America from November 15, 2017 through December 31, 2017 or while supplies last.

Consisting of a Backpack, Cuff and Leash from Peak Design, the Capsule re-imagines how photographers carry, protect, organize and access their gear. The limited edition Backpack pays homage to the Leica brand with signature red stitching and a ‘red dot’, making the Capsule an ideal, complementary accessory for Leica enthusiasts. Peak Design is a design leader who makes products that keep gear organized, protected, and accessible. The San Francisco based company prides itself in creating true utility through elegant, thoughtful design, making this a natural collaboration. Peak Design believes that less is more and that simplicity yields elegance.

Peak Design Backpack

The Backpack adapts to ever-changing gear, lifestyle and environment. It gives unrivaled accessibility, expandability and organization. The patented MagLatch provides fast top access with dual side-loading via two weatherproof side zips. The backpack is suited for daily commutes and extended travel and can be configured in many ways with the FlexFold dividers to keep gear organized and protected as opposed to being bunched at the bottom of the bag. The backpack also features internally padded accessory pockets to keep small items in check and a dedicated sleeve for up to a 15 inch laptop, tablet and documents. The black Backpack features a Red Rivet and red stitching on the top outer portion of the bag. The backpack also features a tuck-away strap system and 2 expandable external side pockets.

Peak Design Leash

The Leash (neck strap) is a versatile and quick-connecting camera strap. It packs functionality and endless adaptability into an ultra-portable package. It can be configured as a sling strap, neck strap, safety tether and more. The length can be adjusted with the dual aluminum and Hypalon quick-adjusters with just a finger. The Leash connects and disconnects quickly and stows easily in a pocket or bag.

Peak Design Cuff

The Cuff (wrist strap) offered total peace of mind in a tiny, low-profile package. It is the most elegant, unobtrusive way to protect a camera from accidental drops. It connects quickly and securely to any camera, binoculars or any other device using Peak Design’s unique Anchor Link system. The wrist loop magnetically locks in the open position, or comfortably cinches down on the user’s wrist for added security. It features custom aluminum hardware. When not in use, the Cuff stores as a bracelet for quick accessibility.

  • Queue all the red dot haters.

    • Actually the backpack looks very nice, I just don’t like backpacks.

      • Normally I don’t like packages either … but this Peak Design thing has changed my mind – and I use it quite often … This red-dot-edition is really nice.

  • AnthonyD42

    I already have this backpack but now that it has the Leica red dot I want it again. Is there something wrong with me? (that’s a rhetorical question, of course)

    • Ita Yuliati

      I would be interested in buying it. Can you inform me where you bought the back pack? Thanks

      • the links are in the post

        • Ita Yuliati

          which one?

          • To the Leica version at Leica Store Miami and to the regular Peak Design bags on Amazon.

        • Ita Yuliati

          got the link. Thanks Peter for pointing out

    • no, nothing wrong 🙂 I know that feeling

    • I have the regular early days Kickstarter version (greyish), but I absolutely love the new black series (don’t care too much about this cliniclowns/red nose version)… so, when recently they had a campaign on for like a week, I backed for a black 20L backpack with discount. Will need to get rid of the old one now. 😛 Oh, what we do for style points. xD

  • It is a very useful design for thieves, of course.

    • wiep

      Actually it’s not. You can lock the zippers and can’t reach the camera from top. At least not easily and depending where you put it. Bought mine a year ago for my SL and a Q. Can add some extra stuff like headphone and mic, flash etc. still very happy with it and still in excellent shape

      • CraigS

        I think “useful design for thieves” could be interpreted as “oooh, red dot bag, there’s probably a nice Leica in that bag. I’m going to steal that bag.”

        • Brennan McKissick

          I doubt 90% of the population even knows what a Leica is and even if they did, an even smaller portion would put together the fact that’s a Leica “red dot” and a Peak Design backpack.

    • Brennan McKissick

      Like wiep said, you can loop the zippers together and lock them. Unless someone is literally trying to rip the bag off your back then they won’t be able to just unzip it and grab stuff and run.

  • I’ve already ordered mine. Was already looking at replacing my well worn STM messenger bag I travel with for work and was already thinking about a backpack. Got the Miami Leica ad email for this new edition and placed my order.

  • Brennan McKissick

    I don’t care about the dot, but they did release a black one a few weeks ago. I’m definitely going to get a black 20L to carry more equipment when I need to or heading out for a day and just need more room in general. I actually ordered the 5L sling yesterday for a small, day to day kit.

    • I’ve had the regular standard color 20L from the earlier campaign, but I recently came across their very short-lived Kickstarter campaign where you could pledge for a black version with discount as well! And that one does indeed look the sweetest. I wouldn’t even want this cliniclown/red nose version.

  • Neopulse

    Honestly. I’d buy this bag. I own their camera strap, Everyday Messenger bag in charcoal and soon planning on buying the cuff. This bag however I admit is nice.
