It's a big EDC market out there, and tons of awesome gear is released all the time. We made The Drop to help you discover the latest and greatest essentials worth a spot in your EDC.

If your everyday carry includes cameras, lenses, and other delicate electronics, you know how important it is to protect those items as you take them from place to place daily. And that's why padded protective inserts like the Peak Design Camera Cube V2 are so helpful. They allow you to use the bag of your choice while keeping your core essential tech safe and sound and separated from the rest of your gear.

Recently, Peak Design has updated its Camera Cube line, and we particularly like the bag's new 'extra small' version. The X-Small Peak Design Camera Cube V2 fits a small mirrorless or compact camera kit. It features a wholly recycled and weatherproof 160D nylon canvas shell and weatherproof Ultra Zips to keep the elements out when you have them outside. And weighing just 150 grams when empty, it doesn't add too much heft to your regular everyday carry ensemble, like other camera inserts, dedicated photography, and tech bags tend to do.

And because the insert is water-resistant by itself, you could opt to attach a Peak Design strap to its anchor points and carry it as a standalone bag. Either way, the unique versatility and practicality of the Peak Design X-Small Camera Cube V2 are compelling, even if you don't carry a camera or drone regularly. Small tech essentials need protection, and you can easily accomplish that by adding a Peak Design Extra Small Camera Cube to your everyday carry.

What we like: These “extra small” proportions of the Peak Design Camera Cube V2 make it the most everyday carry-friendly option to fit into any bag or pack.

What to watch out for: The Peak Design Camera Cubes are only available in black, which might not match your aesthetic or the bag or pack you will use with the padded insert.

Final verdict: With the Peak Design X-Small Camera Cube V2, it's easy to keep your most valuable tech and photography essentials safe from everyday bumps and scrapes. With Peak Design standing behind all of its products with a solid lifetime warranty, you can rely on this padded insert bag through thick and thin in the years to come.
