PD Sling 6 V2


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Needing some advice if the PD Sling 6 V2 is enough for my needs since the store here where I am living require you to pay in full amount for the bag and they don't even have a demo/show model we can test if it fits our gear.

Currently I only carry the following during trips:

1. X-H2 with XF 16-55 F2.8

2. 33mm F1.4

3. Cables / Chargers / 2 Extra Batteries

I'm contemplating in buying the PD Sling 6 V2 since it is quite burdensome to bring the Everyday Backpack for some trips I do.

You advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I love Peak Design stuff but it is pricey.  I have the Slide Lite strap and its great.  The lock mechanism is pretty cool, making adjustments easy but secure when locked.  But can't comment on sizing for what you will carry. 

Yeah PD is very good. Already have the Every Backpack V2, Camera Cube, and Wrist Straps. They are all awesome. Just took the plunge and bought the Sling 6L V2. Once it arrives I'll post pictures of my gear with it maybe some others are contemplating on buying this bag and would want to have a sizing guide.

I think it should work for what you listed depending on how large your charger is. I can fit my X-T5 with XF 70-300 F4-5.6 vertically and XF 30 F2.8 or XF 18-55mm F2.8-4. I can get all three lenses in without a charger if stack the smaller ones.  I had the 3L first when just had X100V and liked it so much I added the 6L.

Just got my 6L last week and it fits the following:
1. X-H2 with 16-55 2.8

2. XF 33mm 1.4

3. XF 56mm 1.2

4. Charging Cord

5. 2 Power Banks

6. iPad Pro 11" (Kind of hard to place in, I think a iPad Mini 8.3" would be a better fit)

Thanks for the update - would the iPad Pro 11" fit better with less camera equipment? Or is it just the size of the tablet?

I tried placing the iPad by itself with the bag empty and it fits easily. The picture below is how I placed the iPad 11" without a case or magic keyboard. So yeah I think it'll fit better with less equipment. Sadly I can't simulate a smaller camera such as an x100v which I think would be perfectly sized for this.

Thanks - I can't make the picture work but my question is answered

    • Something does not seem right. Uncompressed raw files for the X-T5 are supposed to be around 80MB, call it 85MB just to be safe in that assumption. 183 x 85MB = 15555MB, which is about 15.6GB. Even if you are using full sized, fine jpg along with the uncompressed raw files, you would not come close to filling a newly formatted 64GB card with 183 shots. Maybe try a new card?
    • Sometimes, issues like these can be complex and difficult to diagnose, especially if they're intermittent.
    • Agree with Jerryy..........I use the 70-300 A LOT and love it.  I have the 1.4 TC and I rarely use it, I find the lack of light to be limiting.  I recently bought the 150-600 Fuji lens and it is wonderful, super reach and super sharp.  A bit heavy to carry around so I still carry the 70-300 most of the time.  When I do take the 150-600 with me, I've been amazed with the results.
    • If your image frame numbers with the X-T5 are "99xx", my first thought is that your X-T5 is set for "Continuous" frame numbers and your card has run out of available numbers up to 9999. But, that your X-T20 is set to "Renew" Go to Settings > Save Data Setting > Frame No. and choose "Renew". Reformat the card.  Hope that helps.
    • Hi All My XT5 tells me that my newly formatted 64gb card has a capacity of 183 photos, which is much less than it had previously.  It also tells me that by 32gb card has the same capacity which sounds about right.  When I put the cards in my XT20 however the capacity of the 64 gb card is double that of the smaller one which is what I'd expect.   Daft laddie question - why?  Is it me? Thanks Ian
