Where can I buy Peak Design cheaper?

I really want to get 5L Peak design sling bag, but paying $130 for it may be a little excessive. Any place you guys may know to buy with a discount? (I already tried kijiji....)

Their products do go on sale periodically. They had 20% off a couple times last year.

If you don't need a bag right now, hang tight. If you do, then bite the bullet and pay the extra $26.

I have the 5L sling - great bag for sure.

They were 20% off during boxing day at Henrys. Their gear is pretty solid so I'd say it's worth the price. But I'm sure you could find something close to it's quality. I'd suggest checking out some youtube reviews for several opinions

You can put them on your watchlist @ Amazon. They do go on sale periodically

Buying used is the only way to get significant discount. Peak design products are well made and it is not easy to 'break' or 'worn out'

Bought the Sling 5L when it was 20% off at Henry's...

I caved and bought the Sling 10L in Black with My Flickr Pro 20% Off Discount Code direct from the Peak Design Website...

LOL!!!


They ship out from their Mississauga Warehouse so no Customs or Duties...

There is a clone of the bag on Aliexpress, both the 5L and 10L, but who knows what kind of quality we are talking about here.

Any comment about both the sling? I'm looking to get one of them for my hasselblad 500CM while I bike. I already have the 30L backpack but was hoping to go a bit lighter

Peak Design is like Apple/ Bose and almost never goes on sale. That said, I've seen the following discounts:
Boxing Day
Black Friday
Older revisions of PD products on B&H Flash Sales

As for myself, I found a good sale on a Tenba bag and I'm very happy, saving 50%+ chief l compared to PD.

I would not store expensive camera gear on my back whilst cycling. One crash and your stuff could be seriously damaged.
What if there were no hypothetical questions?

shoot, looks like it was limited time. It comes back often. I'll try to keep my eyes open for the next sale!

Probably a Canada Day sale.... IIRC they had a sale during May 24 weekend. Just sit tight for stat holidays and they're bound to have another one... If not the August Civic Holiday (Caribana) weekend, then Labour Day in September

there are some good deals on the original everyday bags right now. The cheapest I've seen the 5L sling was $100 but they're selling off old stock now since they introduced a new line.

5L sling $77.97
https://www.amazon.ca/Design-Everyday-S ... s9dHJ1ZQ==

Everyday messenger 13" $173.97
https://www.amazon.ca/Peak-Design-Every ... NrPXRydWU=

It seems to be the cheapest on Amazon right now but check a few other sources to make sure. Peak Design's own website has 40% off the original everyday line and 20% off the new line. (I don't know about their taxes and duties though). Henrys and Vistek also carry their stock.

I'm debating getting the 13" messenger but not sure if it's too heavy for daily use just as a laptop bag to and from work.
