Tuck Backpack Review

I absolutely love this pack. The fit and finish is next level, and though the footprint seems to be the same size as the Mezzo the flap design makes for a more spacious interior. Finally the biggest selling feature for me is that Waterfield expanded their use of magnets in this bag both in the clasps that hold the main compartment closed and the side compartments. The convenience factor can't be overstated for this!

You can Tuck many things in this backpack

My latest in a long line of Waterfield bags, and it is a great backpack. Quality like always is top notch. The storage in this pack is voluminous. - so many smaller day and/or travel items fit in this bag. IPad 12.9 with Magic keyboard fits perfect; my Dell laptop is too thick for the largest of two sewn-in interior sleeves. The laptop still can be secured my the lean-in of the front panel. The suitcase handle panel is a plus; I carry this often as a sling and it stays on the shoulder; being left-handed the buckle unlatching took some getting use to but not too difficult to master. Won’t use the zipper pocket for iPhone or wallet as shown unless it can be better secured. This backpack does sit up on its own and the grab handle makes it convenient to move or tote around. The chocolate leather on black is a common combination with my Waterfield bags and does not disappoint with this one. Good bag - worth the money!

Well built, perfect claps

It's everything I ever wanted in a backpack. There are a number of things I didn't know I wanted until I got this backpack.

Chad I. (California, United States)
Loving it!

Took it on the first small trip today! Was surprised at what I was able to fit inside it. 16” MacBook Pro, a 12.9” iPad Pro with Magic Keyboard, pair of shoes and a change of athletic wear, some snacks, some photography gear, and then plenty of pocket space for small things like a wallet, battery pack, charging cables, etc.

The water bottle pockets are accessible, but also disappear when not in use thanks to the magnets. And my favorite thing is that even when empty, the bag stands upright. Love it.

Keep your bag looking new by applying wax when you think it needs a little refresh. Although any wax is applicable, you can use Martexin Original Wax which was initially used to coat your canvas bag. 



If you have the waxed canvas and chocolate leather version of the Tuck Backpack, Gary shows how you can maintain these materials so they’ll look great over time. We use full grain Roughman Leather for your bag which has oils that respond well to heat.


Although this video is for the AirPods Max Shield Case, the maintenance also applies to your bag.
