Hands on: Peak Design Everyday Phone Case, Out Front Bike Mount & Mini Tripod

A few weeks ago, while walking through the Sea Otter Classic event, I overheard someone yell to me…”Hey, I like your camera mount“! I looked over and saw that the person yelling was from the Peak Design booth. They were on my list to cover so I went over to check out what was cool or new.

Back in October of 2020 we covered Peak Design’s Kickstarter campaign for their Mobile Ecosystem. But, it’s been a few years, and the products are a bit more refined and have had some time being used out in the real world. I was personally super impressed by the products they showed me, and I thought you would be too.

I’m not going to deep dive into these as Cory did a really awesome job doing that on the post back in 2020. No, I thought I would just update you on the specs, price ranges, and some small details of my three favorite products that were shown to me:

The case uses SlimLink which is a combination of a magnetic/mechanical lock built right into the case.

This case can also come with a flat-stowing, quick-deploying finger loop for added grip and security if you’d like.

The three full aluminum legs look and feel really strong, fully articulate, have vibration/anti-slip rubber feet, and can pack down really flat to fit in your pocket. It uses the same SlimLink magnetic locking system as the other products making your phone attachment ultra-secure. The micro ball head was engineered by Peak Design’s tripod engineers to ensure an ultra-smooth feel.
