Peak Design’s Field Pouch V2 is a minimalist carryall with demure fanny-pack flair. Users can also carry the pack over the shoulder, like a purse. The pouch has multiple exterior attachment points and a load of internal organization. If you’re trying to hit a compact, versatile EDC pack aesthetic that fits right in between Steve Irwin and Taylor Swift, this is your moment.
Rest easy in the knowledge that Peak Design is a certified B Corporation. The designation holds the company accountable for planet-friendly operation. Peak Design says all materials in the Field Pouch V2 are recycled, and Bluesign certified.
Let’s get into the details so you can get fanny rockin’ — sustainably.
Field Pouch V2 Capability
The Field Pouch V2 is an update on a successful predecessor, adding features for user optimization. A detachable, adjustable shoulder strap, improved pocket layout, and dual attachment points are all new. The overlapped seams also update the look. And in terms of utility, they help reduce snag and increase the pack’s longevity.
The roll-top opening secures with velcro for easy and adjustable access. Because of the pack’s size versatility, it can be used alone or as a kit bag inside a larger pack. A litany of stretch and zip pockets line the inside, offering organization for common EDC gadgetry. Peak Design makes the strap long enough to let users sling the pack over their shoulder or across their body.
To switch up the style and go rogue — that is, fanny pack — just remove the strap and thread your belt through the attachment loops.
Construction Sustainability and Peak Design’s Commitment to the Planet
The Field Pouch V2’s shell is 400D (light/medium density) waterproof nylon canvas. For water resistance, the material is double poly-coated. Peak Design notes that all fabrics in the Field Pouch V2 are recycled.
