The Everyday Sling 3L v2 is the new high-end bag produced by Peak Design, who graciously provided us one to review. I’ve had the bag for a period of 2 weeks now, and I can confidently say it has its fair share of uses, strong points, and weak points.
Before starting, I wanted to state that I reviewed the bag as a Nintendo Switch bag, so all the points I will be highlighting will be based on the bag functioning as such. I was provided an ash-colored bag, which I appreciated as it is both simplistic and stylish. The feel of the outer bag is very soft, with an even softer interior. Solely based on the material in the bag, this is quite a high-quality bag.
The bag also gives two options on how to go around with it. One is the handle; the other is the strap. The strap out of the box is tight when using it, but it can be adjusted to be tighter or looser, so it will fit most people just fine. The bag also has a divider that attaches to its soft interior along with pockets that I used to store my joy cons. Regarding the question of how the bag functions as a Switch bag, frankly put, putting the Switch with the joy-cons attached it does not sit in the bag properly. I also found that the bag isn’t big enough to adequately fit the entire console kit (Including the dock, HDMI cable, power brick, and two pro controllers).
That being said, I think this bag would work best for the Switch Lite. The Switch Lite is small and compact enough where it will fit the bag with no problem along with maybe a phone and wallet. When going for a quick stroll to the nearest park or stores, finding a place to sit and relax, you can easily bring out the Switch Lite to play your favorite games on the go. With that scenario, the bag would function exceptionally well, and with the addition of its excellent quality, it makes for a great bag. With a Switch Lite, the bag also has enough space to store a few physical games with no issues.
The quality of the material used for the bag is great. It has an amazing feel to it. That, however, leaves us with the question, is it a good bag just for the Nintendo Switch? Well, if you’re the owner of a Nintendo Switch Lite looking for a high-quality bag for your handheld as well as a few other items, then look no further as the Everyday Sling 3L v2 will be a great fit for you.
However, if you’re looking for a bag that’ll fit a full Nintendo Switch console, I advise you to look somewhere else. Combining the fact that the bag is priced between $70-$100, costing as much as one-third of the Switch, and the fact that it does not function very well solely as a base Switch carrier, I strongly recommend going for a bag that is primarily made for the Switch that can also offer adequate protection while being easy to travel with. Aside from a Nintendo Switch Lite, the bag also functions well with any other small device, such as a camera bag as an example. So if I ever want to get into photography during this quarantine period, it will be a great bag for me to start storing my cameras in.
All in all, the Everyday Sling 3L v2 is a stylish, high-quality bag that can be used with pretty much any small device, especially with the Nintendo Switch Lite. While it is much too small for a Nintendo Switch console and its peripherals, it is still a bag worth the purchase for its quality alone.
