Impressive: Peak Design's Everyday Messenger

It doesn’t matter how many cubbyholes your car has — there are never enough. This is why luggage firms target motorists who — at some point in their journey — also become pedestrians.

They don’t get much more original than San Francisco firm Peak Design which — once best known for its camera bags — has launched an innovative new range of packs.

Particularly useful is the multi-purpose £134.99 ‘Everyday Messenger’, combining compact dimensions with large capacity, stretching from 13.5 – 20.5 litres, and cleverly organised with origami-inspired ‘FlexFold’ dividers. A great low-profile bag for commuters, with its comfortable strap and attractive, hard-wear fabric.

It will feature the new XC60 T8 R-Design alongside the V90 estate and XC90 SUV.
